Sector101 WaveBlade 8MB Programmable Wavecard Information
The 8MB WaveBlade card is a programmable Waveform card for use with all the Yamaha SY / TG series synthesizers that support Yamaha Waveform cards.

Yamaha units that support Waveform Cards:
  • SY55 & TG55
  • SY77 & TG77
  • SY85 & TG500
  • SY99
  • RM50
  • RY30
This card will allow the use of custom samples in machines that do not have this option as standard. The SY99, SY85, TG500, and RM50 already have the facility to load custom samples into internal or expanded sample memory. The SY55, TG55, SY77, TG77, and RY30 do not have this option. This programmable waveform card will allow these machines access to custom samples.

This programmable waveform card can also be used as a sample storage device for loading samples into machines with internal sample memory. Copying sample data from the waveform card into internal sample memory is much faster than using floppy disk or Midi SDS.

There is no functionality impact when using this programmable waveform card with the SY99, SY85, TG500, and RM50. Samples stored in internal sample memory, SYEMB05 or SYEMB06 modules are still fully accessible. This programmable waveform card offers extra sample storage on top of any sample storage installed in these machines.


Creating Samples & Waveforms:
Currently the only software that will create the image files for this card is Derek Cook's sy.factory application. This app will allow the import of WAV files to create single-sample tones or multi-sample waveforms. You can configure the key-range, pitch, looping & original key settings of each sample which allows you to easily create a multi-sample waveform. Once you have everything setup it can be saved as one complete image file for direct upload into the WaveBlade card. The image file can be loaded back into sy.factory and tweaked if necessary.


Using samples from Yamaha Waveform Cards:
If you have a collection of Yamaha Waveform cards and wish to use the samples & waveforms for the WaveBlade card then please get in touch (email address at the bottom of this page).
I can create images from your Yamaha cards that can be directly uploaded into the Waveblade card. These images can be loaded into sy.factory so you can create a new image file that has all your favourite samples from your Yamaha Waveform card collection. The voice data from the matching Data card can be extracted and written to the Datablade card so you can have up to eight complete card sets stored using the WaveBlade & DataBlade.
