Also no word about "Tones" and "Patches" for the D50 card.

I could find no pricing on these. Did I overlook something?

HCard order
Price in $ and EUR as well as shipping costs on bottom of page.
But itīs all sold out for the time being.

Time to ask īem some questions,- p.ex how they handle performance and fractional tuning data in addition to single presets on the DX7II card and how they handle tones and patches on the D50 card.

Up to now I only see 2 buttons switching banks up/down and I guess then use MIDI PRG chnages for the preset recall.

According to the DX7II,- the original RAM-4 card handles 2 banks of presets (A & B), 32 presets each (=64), 32 performances as well and fractional tuning data in addition the DX7II itself was/is unable to store to internal memory.

Now the Hcard stores 6400 presets.
Consequently it should store at least 3200 performances as well and 100x more fractional tuning data settings.

But when it does, how does the DX7II find that data and how to switch performances being stored on the Hcard ?

For the D50 card I guess it changes banks w/ the buttons and patches w/ PRG changes.
But how to store and load tones isnīt explained at all.
