Alesis MMT8 sequencer memory expansion

Hi all,

Graham (a.k.a Professor Presley) here from the band "Warning Will Robinson":

For those of you who still use this sequencer like me (the best live performance sequencer ever!), you would be aware of one of its main limitations - small memory.

It's ok if you use it synced to a MIDI drum machine and have it just doing the instrument sequences, and let the drum machine do all the drum pattern work, but if you do it like me and use a multitimbral sound module/sampler for ALL of your sounds, including drum sounds, then you'll find you run out of memory pretty quick sequencing drum notes as well - depending on how complex your songs are - probably 10 songs at the most will fit in it.

On my band's website, I have developed a DIY 16x memory expansion guide on how to expand your beloved MMT8 into the 21st century. The guide is free to download. It costs probably less than $50 in parts, and a bit of soldering skills to complete:

There are other mods for it and other keyboards and gadgets, too, so feel free to snuffle around and have a look. Also, some service manuals for lots of synths here on my page, too:

Oh, and don't forget to have a listen to some of our music while you're there.
