Wow, thank you sir! Having a blast with this one :-)

Any chance this might work on a Juno106?

Hi Christian, I wrote you a mail addressed to, did you get it? (on the 2nd of August)

Hey Markus, sorry I didn't reply to your mail earlier. You were asking for a MKS-80 editor, right? That would be cool indeed, though I don't have one here unfortunately. Building such an editor requires to test it with the real hardware to make sure the Sysex implementation is correct and the transmission speed is not causing buffer overload issues in these old machines. But maybe in the future, when I get my hand on a unit!

Just bought this and saved some patches to my harddrive but cant load them into the juno1 again? I have followed the instructions in detal soseems odd, any idea about what I'm doing wrong?
