Sector101 DataBlade 16 MultiBank MCD Data Card Information
The DataBlade16 is a multi-bank MCD-64 card. This card will perform the same function as a regular Yamaha MCD-64 memory card but with the advantage of being able to store the same amount of data as 16 individual MCD64 cards.

Yamaha units that support the DataBlade16 Card:
  • SY22
  • SY35 & TG33
  • SY55 & TG55
  • SY77 & TG77
  • SY85 & TG500
  • SY99
  • RM50
  • TQ5
  • V50
  • SPX990

The DataBlade16 has a 1M Byte memory capacity partitioned as 16x 64KB Data Cards.

Each 64KB partition behaves as a single independent MCD-64 card.

There is no limitation on how the individual MCD-64 partitions are used.
Each partition can be formatted by any synth unit without affecting the data stored in other partitions.

Partition Usage Example:
  • Partitions 1 thru 3 formatted for RM50
  • Partitions 4 thru 9 formatted for SY85
  • Partitions 10 thru 13 formatted for SY99
  • Partitions 14 thru 16 formatted for SY77
  • .. or any other combinations.

The 16-position rotary switch on the front panel is used for selecting the partitions.
The LED digit and 3 single LEDs indicate which of the card partitions is currently selected.
The orientation of the LED display can be rotated so to make it easier to read when the card is in a rack mounted unit.
The LED brightness can also be adjusted if required.

The memory in the DataBlade is retained by a single CR2025 Lithium coin cell battery.
This coin cell can be replaced very easily without the need for any tools. The expected life of the battery is 4 years.
