well, for example, I have a few hundred custom DX-7 patches I 
programmed in Opcode's Galaxy back in the late 80's. Opcode died, and 
the Galaxy file format died with them. AFAIK, none of the modern DX 
emulators, like FM-7, etc, will import Galaxy patches. I suppose I 
could dig an old mac out of the closet, hook it up to my DX, export 
the patches a bank at a time into the DX, export them as sysex back 
to the computer., load them into DX, yeah, I'll do that the next time 
I have a free week...
