List of Yamaha units that can use the DataBlade Cards:
  • SY22
  • SY35 & TG33
  • SY55 & TG55
  • SY77 & TG77
  • SY85 & TG500
  • SY99
  • RM50

Each DataBlade 64KB partition behaves just as a single independent MCD-64 card.
There is no limitation on how the individual partitions are used.

Each partition can be formatted by any synth unit without affecting the data stored in other partitions.

Partition Usage Example:
  • Partitions 1 thru 5 formatted for RM50
  • Partitions 6 thru 9 formatted for SY85
  • Partitions 10 thru 13 formatted for SY99
  • Partitions 14 thru 16 formatted for SY77
  • .. or any other combinations using the 16 / 32 partitions.

The 16-position rotary switch on the front panel is used for selecting the partitions.

The LED digit and 3 single LEDs indicate which of the card partitions is currently selected.

The orientation of the LED display can be rotated so to make it easier to read when the card is in a rack mounted unit.

The LED brightness can also be adjusted if required.

The memory in the DataBlade is retained by a single CR2025 Lithium coin cell battery.
This coin cell can be replaced very easily without the need for any tools. The expected life of the battery is 4 years.
