This soundbank does NOT work with the Roland JD-800 as it uses special parameters and samples of the JD-990.
And that's how to load the soundset into your synthesizer:
SYX format: This format is widely spread in the PC world and can be read and sent by a variety of sequencers, bankloaders, dump utilities and editors (e.g. Cakewalk, Cubase, Dumpster, WinSysex, Sound Diver). Load the soundset into the respective program and send it to your synthesizer (please follow the manual of your synth and software, respectively).
MID format (Standard MIDI File): This is a format that can be used by most MIDI sequencers on all platforms and many of the hardware sequencers. The files contain the sysex data and are simply played back with your synthesizer connected to the computer/sequencer (please follow the manual of your synth and software, respectively).
BEWARE! When you send the data to your synthesizer, its RAM banks will be OVERWRITTEN! Please don't forget to backup your RAM sounds!
