OB-8 orig patches in SYSEX FORMAT

HI!

I have an OB-8 and am trying to find the original patches in SYSEX format.
If some kind soul has these in that format would you be so kind as to send me them..?
Thx a lot!!

Hi, I found this file with the factory patches for the OB-8, but I wasn't able to send them to my OB-8 with the factory midi interface installed.
I know with an old mac with System 9 (or earlier) and Opcode Galaxy I can get all patches or save an entire bank to the OB-8 but the file I've found is not suitable for Galaxy (it's a .syx file).
If anybody knows how to send all patches, please let me know.

Thanks for the file.

I heard/read that the OB will only send 1 patch at a time via Sysex.
That the Encore midi interface kit would allow the synth to send ALL patches at once.

What computer are you trying to send the sys file with? It's a bit
unclear. Once I know that I will see if I can help you.

I use the fabulous Laser Mammoth for full sysex dumps to/from my OB8.

Mine has the Oberheim retrofitted Midi board.

Thanks to all for your help in my search for sysex files of the original patches for the OB-8.

FYI, I would be sending the sysex from a PC and am now trying to find info (manual and sorts) on sending
sysex TO the OB from the PC (commands, setups, etc).   I was sent a sysex file, but I am not sure if it's an entire bank dump or
individual patches (for my OB does NOT have the Encore midi setup or Kiwi??).  My OB has MIDI (installed well after I got it).

If you all wouldn't mind, I'd like to get this Sysex in both formats:
  • Individual patches
  • Entire patch dumps.

Any help and other info on sending sysex to the OB  WOULD BE GREATLY appreciated.

Thx!!

To reiterate my last post, Laser Mammoth has the original factory bank available from the ‘Public Bank Library’.

 

https://f0f7.net/fe/#/SysexLibrarian/OberheimOb8

 

It’s FREE! I have chosen to upgrade to a Pro account as I want to store more banks but if you just want the factory bank, it’s there, waiting for you, for free.

 

Full instructions are there …. not sure what else I can say!
