Vintage digital synths like the Yamaha DX7 and the Roland D-50 are back in a big way. Despite there popularity, they possess a few shortcomings that limit their usefulness in a modern production workflow, patch storage being one of them. Hypersynth have stepped into the breach by creating the Hcard series, which massively expands the memory of these 80s favourites.
One for the digital synth fans: Hypersynth’s Hcard series offers up a huge memory upgrade for the Yamaha DX7, DX7II and the Roland D-50.
The capacity for the original synths was quite limited – one bank of memory containing 32 patches for the DX7, 64 patches for the DX7II and D-50. Memory upgrades were available, but could only double the capacity of the original cards.
The new Hcard replaces the originals with 100 banks of storage, so you can amass a library of thousands of patches.
