Quasimidi GIGA-Card

This one was spotted here and sent in via M Me.

Never seen one of these before. The following is the description in Dutch followed by Googlish:

"Voordat Quasimidi legendarische synthesizers uitbracht, maakten ze sound expansions voor een aantal duur segment keyboards van onder andere Roland.

Deze expansion is daar een toppunt van. 512 styles en begeleiding patches voor de E-serie keyboards van Roland. Roland heeft zelf een reeks kaartjes uitgebracht onder de types TN-SCx-xx waar maximaal 8 styles op zijn opgeslagen. Dit kastje heeft er dus 512. Deze 512 zijn opgeslagen in blokken van 8, waar via het menu telkens een andere 'kaart' kan worden ingeladen.

Ik heb zelf de E-70 gehad en er best lol van gehad. Vooral de Peter Gunn style waar dat bekende intro van Emerson, Lake and Palmer perfect wordt nagebootst en je heerlijk op kan varieren.

Dus als je nog een Roland Intelligent Synthesizer E-nogwat hebt die TN kaartjes slikt, ik raad 'm 100% aan!

De Giga-card is bij voorkeur op te halen in Zaandam, daar het een wat ouder stukje techniek is. Testen kan helaas niet want ik heb geen E keyboard meer. Verzenden is uiteraard mogelijk, maar zijn alle risico's voor de koper."


"Before Quasimidi released legendary synthesizers, they made sound expansions for a number of expensive segment keyboards from Roland, among others.

This expansion is the pinnacle of that. 512 styles and accompaniment patches for Roland's E-series keyboards. Roland has released a series of cards under the types TN-SCx-xx where a maximum of 8 styles are stored. This box therefore has 512. These 512 are stored in blocks of 8, where a different 'card' can be loaded each time via the menu.

I have had the E-70 myself and had quite a bit of fun. Especially the Peter Gunn style where that famous intro of Emerson, Lake and Palmer is perfectly simulated and you can vary wonderfully.

So if you have another Roland Intelligent Synthesizer E-something that swallows TN cards, I recommend it 100%!

The Giga-card can preferably be picked up in Zaandam, as it is a somewhat older piece of technology. Unfortunately, testing is not possible because I no longer have an E keyboard. Shipping is of course possible, but all risks are for the buyer."
