I'm new to the group – my name is Dan Nigrin, and in the past I've successfully developed software for the Roland MC-202 and MC-4 sequencers that interfaces with them via their cassette interfaces. This allows for converting MIDI sequences into the the tape "squelch" required to program their sequencers.
I'm now attempting to do the same thing for the Oberheim DSX. Doing so requires analyzing potentially hundreds of tape dumps of existing DSX sequences, in order to reverse engineer the DSX tape save format. I am not a DSX owner, so I am seeking out interested DSX owners to help with the cause. (I used the same approach to figure out the Roland MC-4 format, and it worked quite well – in fact to this day, I have never seen nor touched an MC-4!).
If I'm successful, it will mean that you will be able to convert MIDI sequences to DSX format, and furthermore, you'll be able to use your DSX as an 8 channel CV sequencer, WITHOUT having to use it with an Oberheim keyboard.
If interested, please contact me privately, and I'll give you more details of what I need.
