    Complete long shot here, but maybe somebody knows of an ancient repository of synth stuff...

    I have a late eighties Roland D-5, which is a pre-General Midi synth, however, all the GM sounds are there, except, as Eric Morcombe said, not necessarily in the right order.

    Many years ago, I got a sysex file that reorganised all the factory patches into GM order and all was well. However, the synth has glitched recently and lost a lot of the programming, and naturally, I can't find the patch file to reload it.

    So... does anyone know where I might look for a replacement? I've searched Roland sites and Googled generally, but no luck.

    If you arrived here from the Internet having searched for the patches and found my question...

    The Roland site actually does have them, but under MT-32 patches. The file is [url=http://www.rolandus.com/support/downloads_updates/eula.php?FileName=MT2GM.EXE]http://www.rolandus.com/support/downloads_updates/eula.php?FileName=MT2GM.EXE[/url]

    It says "This file is compatible with the Roland MT-32, D-5, D-10, D-110, D-20, CM-32L, CM-64, LAPC-1 and other MT-32 compatible devices." It's a DOS EXE file (!) but is really a self-extracting ZIP, so any ZIP-compatible software should be able to open it on any system.
