Bought a Roland S-760 & SCSI2SD. Can I Load Custom Samples?

Bought a Roland S-760 & SCSI2SD. So far I've provisioned the virtual hard drives on the SCSI2SD, no sweat.

I understand that I can load Roland sample libraries as a disk image. But can I create my own disk image with custom samples and load that on the SCSI2SD, and have the S760 read that instead?

Technically it is possible. But you will have to research Ckickensys Translator topics. I never converted wav to Roland. Only to Akai via Translator and that works perfect.

You know I bought a JD-990 last year after reading your site about it. It's fantastic. And well, this S-760 is a direct result of liking the JD-990 so much. So I have you to thank. While I've got your attention, any other synths you recommend? I've been looking at V-Synths, and curious if they sound as good as the JDs/S-7XXs

So is this proprietary Roland sample format just lost to time? I'm surprised there are no open source solutions for this. Any resources online that you can recommend for delving more deeply into the technical specifications? So far I've been perusing llamamusic.com and related resources. I'd love to attempt a DIY solution to converting wavs to Roland format. Otherwise, I suppose Chickensys Translator will suffice. Thanks for the tip!

V-Synth XT is very nice general tool for - everything. Sorta like a Swiss knife. Excellent Vocoder, decent D-50 emulation (not exact unfortunately), nice synth engine, awesome variphrase technology although some ppl say VP-9000 sounds even better (fuller) when doing variphrase.

Thanks Don! Your recommendations go a long way.
