Hi all

I am looking to buy a PCMCIA card for the A6 does it matter if it has 2KB attribute memory and replaceable battery and rechargeable battery

Can i buy just any brand?

What do people recommend and where should I look to buy a card?

Saw one on ebay but it was secondhand, not sure of that is a good idea

Hi guys

Is it possible to setup this PCMCIA card to store only program patches on it? Current card setup allows you to store this:

2048K CARD - > SB1 = PROGS SB2 = MIXES SB3 = PROGS+MIX

My Andy formatted it as 8 program banks.
I tried to format different fro it but seems this is the only formatting mode.

I've found answer on this site:

The procedure is a little tricky; you have to follow the directions carefully or you'll miss the important step (like I did about 6 times).

After it displays the card size, it should then display a message something like:

SB1=programs SB2=mixes SB3=progs&mixes

This means that you hit soft button 1 to put only program banks on the card, soft button 2 to put only mix banks on the card, and soft button 3 to put a combination on. If you just hit "store" a second time without having pushed one of the required soft buttons, it will abort the initialization process.


And it works Smile

It's probable that these http://www.envoydata.com/shopping/display_products.php?catid=13 cards should work, as well.


I don't know of anyone who has tried one, but it seems to have the same specs as the cards from thomann.

I'm pretty sure the A6 doesn't use bigger cards than 2MB though, so no point spending more on the larger cards.

I already have my card (bought it on eBay), but still waiting on the synth. Luckily, I also have a QS6, and the A6 card also works in the QS6 (but not all QS6 cards work in the A6).

Good luck,

Russ (rh2y)
