proteus 2500 sequencer patterns

Hi all. I've just got a proteus 2500. It seems that one previous owner has erased all the preset sequncer patterns as it says "empty sequnce". I read that these were avaliable on the cd that came with the 2500 as new. I've looked around the internet and yahoo forums, which I might add seem to be next to useless and are full of spam. I wonder if anyone here has the original sequncer pattens on the factory cd or files for them that they could let me have. Ok, I dont know if it matters regarding the preset sequencer patterns, but I just found that the original factory "composer" rom has been removed but it has the protozoa, proteus 1-2-3 and mo-phat roms fitted...

Nice, Protozoa is nice - I was chasing it for my CommandStation but couldn't find it for less than £150

Hi GYang. That would be cool thanks. Will the preset sequencer patterns work if the original composer rom has been removed. Did they use sounds from that rom?

if you find the cd, can you email the files instead of posting them?

Thanks.

Asuming I can find this cd (and that aint looking to promising at the moment), would I need the E-loader program to put the patterns back on the proteus, and that seems to be as rare as hen's teeth as well, or would this come Inc on the cd?

Try this link I just found. It has the E-loader program for all the proteus models and other files plus, the sequencer patterns for the 2500 http.//francisfisher.me.uk/problem/2011/emu-legacy-archive/.

Everything that was on the bundled CD can be found there, I'd say:

AFAIK all P2500 / Command Station factory patterns & songs rely on factory presets stored in ROM, user preset slots are empty.

Of course user presets are empty but P2500 is sold with "proteus pop collection" of 640 presets .

is it that because my roms has been erased i cant download it back ?

ROM can't be erased, that's the "Read Only" part of the acronym.

The P-ROM is the factory SIMM that's installed in the first slot into the 2500.

https://www.emumania.net/emu-proteus...ion-sound-rom/

SIMM are holding presets, beats (arp) patterns and waveforms.

Would you have an empty unit?

The ROM name shortcut is listed in the top right side of the screen when browsing presets banks.

I also believe there's a ROM test in the Diagnostic Menu.

1. Hold both Cursor buttons down (bellow the Data Wheel) and power on the unit.

I opened it , the present ROM is a Proteus 2000 on : "COMPOSER" (on the back : AP10-01" )

So not the good one but it works and presets are here , i only didnt scroll enough and was satying in "USER PRESETS" bank , when i arrive at the end of user presets it comes "CMPSER" (so "COMPOSER" )

I have to find how launch de proteus dircectly on ROM presets.

Mystery resolved , now i still have to find working PSU (last one was broken , i mounted a PC ATX one but its not full original stuff even if it works)

So you win the 4 extra banks of the P2K.

Quote:
9904: Composer 32MB (ships in Proteus 2500 and Proteus 2000) There are slight variations -- the Proteus 2000 CMPSR ROM (#01) has 8 preset banks, while the Proteus 2500 ROM (#20) has 4 banks.

Not sure I can help. The specs were published at the old Yahoogroups.

Code:
The voltages are screen printed to the side of the connector on the PCB. So:

- Pins 3,4,5,6,9,10 (7 & 8 being ground)

Pin 1        PWM on/off Active Low - Green 
Pin 2        +10v Always on        - Purple
Pin 3 & 4    +3.3v / 3A            - Orange
Pin 5 & 6    +5v / 2A              - Red
Pin 7 & 8    GND                   - Black
Pin 9        -12v / 0.4A           - Blue
Pin 10       +12v / 0.6A           - Yellow

Model No. CMG9-01 100-240VAC 0.85A H04615

E158470

www.powdec.com
Some people adapted ATX PSUs when the original PSU died, like you did.

To prevent this, in EU we used 220v/110v step-down converters so the PSU does not overheat.
Maybe you could go for a Shuttle barebone PSU, which has a fan and a form factor that's close to the original one.

That's about it.

Yes , got it , but i'd like to find original PSU (as the ATX one takes lot of space in a rack ) but seems powdec.com is not available anymore ...

I can find a used one on ebay ... sold 238€
or a broken one ... 89€

Looks crazy !!!

So you're in Euroland.

Did you check the Shuttle PSU option?

normally, when you do a full reset, all (ROM) presets and patterns are restored and copied into the user presets and patterns
