Roland MS-1 memory cards

Does anyone know how large a memory card these will recognise?

I've used as large as a 10meg card, I believe that 48megs is the limit.

Thanks for that, that sounds about right, from other rumours I've heard. I've also got a 10MB card, thought I'd see how large I could go.

From what I've read over on sonicstate you can get a compact flash to pcmcia adapter and just use cf cards. I would figure it'd recognize up to a 64mb card via the adapter. I was thinkin of gettin an MS-1 myself.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I read that sonic state review also, he claims he was using a 128MB cf card/adapter. He didn't say whether or not the MS-1 recognised the whole 128MB though. Still, when you look at the prices of cf cards + adapters, compared to the proper Sandisk flash cards for the MS-1, the price per MB is way better for the cf + adapter, even if it doesn't recognise the whole card.

I'd only recommend you get an MS-1 if it's a really good price. Better to get a Boss SP404, they're WAY better in sample rate, polyphony, effects, memory size etc. Don't get me wrong I love my MS-1 but you are always working around its limitations, especially that of when you tune a sample, it affects ALL of the samples, not just the one you want.
