I think 512 KB cards (and possibly larger ones) work too but the extra space is not used by the UP.
Can you give us the brand and maybe the part number ?

Mine is a Fujitsu PCMCIA SRAM card, just like this one:

Hi Spectralwaves, what does it mean? I don't understand how to do to get sounds form Morpheus SysEx into the UltraProteus.

I dont even remember writing that .

What I probably meant was based on my own experience when I got a Morpheus Ram/ Rom card about a quarter of a century ago, that had Morpheus presets & I inserted that into my Ultraproteus .

Very few of the patches worked at all. ( because the Morpheus tone data was not there ,the card being in the Ultraproteus)

However I found that when I simply edited the blank patch tone numbers by assigning a preset tone from the Ultraproteus to the patch, ( in the first edit slots/tones 1 & 2) then it 'worked', as in all the other parameters were already there, so there were some really nice sounds with the Morpheus patch data onto the Ultraproteus tones (samples)


How to get Morpheus SysEx patches into the Ultraproteus ?

I have read that it can be done, but I cant see how though, to get them exact, without some work or conversion software, or the correct ROM samples on a card..I dont think that exists though.
The two different instruments have different sample sets, so I think the results would be similar to my results above.

Basically as you probably are aware the Morpheus has a much more synth/ synthetic sample set while the U.P. has much more real world/ orchestral instruments , but the synthesis & editing parameters are identical in both, with the U.P. having a larger sample set & much more filters.

The Ultraproteus though has plenty of raw synth waveforms/ samples in its tone bank , they are just not used in the preset patches unfortunately, but there is nothing to stop a dedicated sound designer to match the Morpheus patches more or less identically, with a fair amount of work..mainly just assigning the appropriate synth waves in the Ultraproteus to the patches after loading the Morpheus SysEx , I would say will get you close.

You could eg. just reprogram the U.P. using only synth waveforms .

hi gang - can anyone help with an RAM problem i'm having
i've tried both these cards :
Pretec Industrial 256Kb SRAM PCMCIA memory Card 16-Bit P/N S65256-E-16
Pretec Industrial 256Kb SRAM PCMCIA memory Card 8-Bit P/N S65256-E-8

and my UltraProteus says , after trying to format it, "CARD SIZE TOO BIG"

not sure what i'm doing wrong. i see users here and on FB groups are using 128KB AND 256KB cards - any tips?

I think the problem is that those cards have attribute memory, you need a 256kbyte 5V SRAM PC card without attribute memory.

From here: http://synthark.org/Archive/Emulator.../Morpheus.html
Quote:
E-mu sold a RAM card (part # 9210), which is obsolete. Pretec Sram Pretec still manufacture new RAM cards. You need a 256kbyte 5V SRAM PC card - without Attribute Memory. The Part Number is SN5256-P. The RAM card is a 256kbyte SRAM PCMCIA Type I card designed with a dual battery system. The primary battery is a replaceable but non rechargeable 3V lithium battery which lasts for 10 years. There is a second onboard rechargeable but non replaceable battery for data retention during primary battery change. This design allows replacement of the primary battery without data loss for approximately 20 minutes. There is a write protect switch on the SRAM card.

I'm looking to get a Pretec SRAM card, but part "SN5256-P" appears to be discontinued. This part could support 8 and 16 bit transfer, but the new parts are specifically 8 or 16, so you have to order a specific version. Anyone know whether an 8 bit or 16 bit version is required?

Don't know about 8 or 16 bit but I just found the following site that seems to sell compatible SRAM cards, on their home page they even mention the Emu Ultraproteus among the supported devices:
http://vikant.com/
Quote:
Vikant PCMCIA SRAM PC Cards are compatible with the following equipment by manufacturer:
Emulator Ultra Proteus Synthesizer (keyboards)
This should be the suitable card (but maybe contact them first and explicitly ask about compatibility with the UltraProteus, just to be sure):
http://vikant.com/product/pcmcia-sra...eable-battery/

Please note that I have no experience with this seller so this is not a recommendation from me, I have no idea whether this is a genuine trustworthy business or maybe even a fake shop, so please do your due diligence.

Hey, thanks for the recommendation. I've got an 8 bit card already ordered, I'll feedback here on whether it works. Cheers.

Update. The Pretec SRAM card I got for my UltraProteus was *not* compatible and gave a "Card Error! CardWrongSize" message when I tried to format it. The specs of the Pretec card are:

Storage: 256K
Attribute Storage: None
Bus Size: 8 bit
Part Numer: SN5256-I-08

The alternative part to this is bus size 16 bit, but no idea if that will work. I'm assuming the 16 bit part number is "SN5256-I-16".

Like i said, I have no idea if the card needs to be 8 or 16 bit. Since 8 bit didn't work for you, then 16 bit should work, unless these new cards have something else that makes them incompatible.
Good luck and let us know in case you try alternatives.

I can confirm now that my FUJITSU MB98A90921-20 card (which works fine in my UltraProteus) is 16 bit.

So cards need to be: 256 Kbyte, 16 bit, 5V, SRAM PCMCIA Type I, without Attribute Memory

Hmm, but 128 KB should be too small according to specs, does the UP not complain about the size of the card and does it really fit a full bank of 128 presets and 128 hypers and 16 midimaps?
