see the archived propellerheads websites
i dont think it was ever sold with an audio interface - no
but u can easily cross-refference the audio interfaces that were available for purchase at the time that recycle first came on the market

at the time of its original launch - there was no windows version and i believe it supported the sound manager which is the built in audio interface built into any macintosh computer

1994 was the original year that recycle was launched i believe
synths - early 90s / Re: expansion DATA cards for JV880 (1992)
« Last post by Romans on July 12, 2018, 03:46:03 AM »
These are banks from PN-JV80-01, PN-JV80-02, PN-JV80-03, PN-JV80-04, PN-JV80-05 in .mid file format.
Also JV-880 Internal (User) bank included.

Use your hardware sequencer for sending to JV-880. Also any DAW can be used - import .mid. Cable from PC's soundcard MIDI OUT should go to JV-880 MIDI IN. You know already :) Click play on DAW - .mid file is beeing sent.

I'd like to remind, that .syx files for JV-1080, JV-2080 can't be loaded into JV-880.
To know if .syx can be transfered to JV-880, there's SysEx File Verification Utility:

Patches from PN-JV80-05 and PN-JV80-07 data cards are from JV-1000.

I only have JV-880, so I can't be sure about .syx files below (see attachment):

patches from JV-1000 (preset banks + user bank) for JV-1080, JV-2080.

I hope that these pathes will work with your JV-1080, JV-2080.

P.S. Compare JV-1000 & JV-880 PDF manual to see which patches are the same with both modules, which are different.

Hi Chucky!

Download from here:

You'll find PN-JV80-01, 02, 03, 04, 05 (.syx files) in this zip file. There's some other soundbanks - Arabia.syx, Bass.syx, US_JV880.syx (Internal), EXP_001.syx etc.

P.S. I'm also still looking for PN-JV80-07.syx file. No luck so far :(

I think it would be great if anyone, who has PN-JV-06, 07 soundbanks, would share these in .syx format here for free. Thanks!

Thank you for the link.  I have PN-JV80-06, which requires the SR-JV80-02 Orchestral ROM expansion. After downloading SysEx Librarian for OS X, I was able to load the other syx info from your link to my JV2080.  I was then able to figure out how to record a SysEx dump of the PN-JV80-06 card to upload it in this post.   It has the 64 patches, 16 performances, and 1 rhythm set.  Hope it helps those looking.  When I find the PN-JV80-07 card on eBay or Reverb I will upload that as well.  This forum group has helped me beyond words.  Much appreciated!

even tho the title says pcp_LED that is the file that is currently posted on
im not sure its correct.. i dont even think there were win98/winME drivrs for this interface
i have the original 1.44mb 3.5" floppies that came with the portman 4x4/s but those drivers are for
windows 95/3.1

OK, I found the Project 5 media. The install disc for version 2 is a 3 GB DVD-ROM. Sort of big to upload. There's also the 2.5 update which is 250 MB (and a 2.5.1 patch on the same CD-ROM)

Let me know if you want these things and I'll be glad to send it to you for shipping costs.
Modern Music Software (PC/MAC) / Re: Cycling 74 "M"
« Last post by rasputin on July 08, 2018, 02:10:19 PM »
I actually find I have two M 2.5 manuals printed and 3 hole punched.  I can send either of these media mail if you're interested; shouldn't cost more than $5. I just hate to throw away stuff like this! Gee, you don't think I have a hoarding problem do you!  ::)

Amazingly it looks like Cycling 74 still has this available for $74 -- this is just for Mac, I think--I think it was alwys just for MacOS.

The cool thing is that if you have version 2.5.7 or later it looks like they'll upgrade you to 2.8 for free.
