1) This program only works with Patches/Tones created using three variations of Super JX firmware
      • Roland Factory Firmware (v1.04 through v2.30)
      • Colin Fraser Firmware (v2.30SE)
      • Vecoven Firmware (v3.xx)
      • It will not work with PWM Patches/Tones created on a v4.xx Vecoven system

DRAG_AND_DROP 2) When using this utility on a Mac system, to speed up the load process, open a Finder window and search for *.SYX files. Drag one file at a time from the Finder window directly onto the "Choose File (Safari/Chrome)" or "Browse (FireFox)" button in the browser utility. If it is a valid Vecoven 4.xx Bulk Dump file, it will be read automatically without having to drill down and search through several directories (click for larger image)

Questions & Answers

Q: Is there any way to run this utility offline without being connected to the Internet?
A: Yes! It's easy. Right‑click on the weblink superjx‑reader.html & Super‑JX_Release_Notes.html, use the "Download Linked File As..." option within your browser and save these two files to a folder on your hard drive. Everything will work exactly the same. To make it look identical with all the original images, right‑click and use the "Save Image As..." option and save these seven images in the same folder as the HTML files:

I designed this as an online utility for three reasons:
        1) No software to install
        2) It's easier to distribute this way as a simple webpage
        3) The most current version will always available online

Q: Can you add a feature which allows the ability to edit and write the Patch, Tone, and Disk Label names?
A: No way, José! Apple, Mozilla and Google go out of their way to make sure that browsers can't write data directly onto the hard drive because of hackers. The only way to write data on the hard drive would be to make a stand-alone program which doesn't use a browser. I don't code anything other than HTML so no plans for a stand-alone program are in the works
