NOTICE: SR-JV Romulator Production Notification List

Notice Updated on: 22nd Feb 2024


Due to the demand for this product I have created a Notification List for allocating future production batches.

When a new batch of Romulators becomes available I will email people on the Notification List on a first-come first-served basis.

If someone does not respond to the notification within 3 days I will assume they have lost interest and their unit will be allocated to the next person on the list.

When I send the notification I will ask for your shipping address. I will then send a PayPal payment link for the full cost including the shipping to your destination.

If someone does not respond to the PayPal payment link within 3 days then their unit will be allocated to the next user on the list.

To get on the Notification List please contact me using the Email address link below:

>> Get on the Notification List <<

Once you are on the list you will be allocated a Notification List number.

I'm slowly getting through the list so please be patient.

The next completed batch will be allocated to List Numbers: 120 to 129

Sector101 SR-JV ROMulator Programmable Wavecard Overview
The SR-JV ROMulator card is an 8 Megabyte programmable Waveform Card for use with all the Roland series synthesizers that support SR-JV80 Expansion Cards.

The ROMulator card has been developed to allow experimental data to be used in a Roland unit.
This will allow reverse-engineering to be performed on known-good SR-JV Expansion Card data.
The goal is to unlock the data format of the Roland SR-JV cards and ultimately be able to create custom waveforms and patches that can be used in a Roland unit using the ROMulator card.


SR-JV Waveform Card Information taken from SoundProgramming.net
The Roland JV-80, JV-90, JV-1000, JV-880, and JV-1010 synths from the JV series can be expanded with one SR-JV80 wave expansion board, as can the JD-990 and the Fantom FA-76.
The XP-30 and XV-88 can accept up to two SR-JV80 boards.
The XP-50, XP-60, XP-80, JV-1080, XV-3080, and XV-5080 can accept up to four SR-JV80 expansion boards.
The JV-2080 can accept up to eight SR-JV80 expansion boards.


SR-JV Card Image Library:
An Image Library has been compiled of all the SR-JV Cards that were ever produced. These images can be used to study the SR-JV sample / patch data format.
Note: I DO NOT supply Romulator cards pre-programmed with SR-JV Card images.


SR-JV ROM Hacking Kit by PythonBlue
PythonBlue has created a ROM Hacking Kit that will create SR-JV ROM images from new sample sets.
This kit is based on Python and requires it to be installed on your PC before using the kit.


ROMulator Card & Programmer Operation:
The ROMulator card is used along with the Programmer Unit to perform Read / Write / Erase jobs on the card.

The Programmer Unit plugs into a PC using the USB interface. The power for the Programmer Unit comes from the USB connection so no other power supply is needed.

To perform the tasks the Programmer Unit is controlled through a Terminal Emulator (Tera Term) application. The user enters commands through the keyboard and the Programmer Unit responds accordingly.

The Programmer Unit can also be used to backup data from SR-JV Expansion Cards. If an SR-JV card becomes faulty at a later date you can re-create the card using the ROMulator card.


   

   


Terminal Emulator Interface:
The example below shows the Programmer Unit's responses to one of the commands.
The top part of the screen is the normal boot title when the Programmer Unit is plugged in.
The CD command asks the Programmer Unit what type is card is installed on it.
The first response is where the ROMulator card was plugged in with data already programmed in to it.
The second response is where the original Roland Techno SR-JV card was plugged in.

The Tera Term (Windows) application is included in the ROMulator Software Pack ZIP file.



OS X Users:
Kevin Meinert has created an instruction on how to upload image files to the Romulator unit using the Serial Terminal Emulator for OS X from Decisive Tactics. This is in PDF format HERE.

Linux Users:
Lance has created an instruction on how to upload image files to the Romulator unit using the MiniCon Terminal Emulator for Linux. This is in PDF format HERE.
