U-20 Reader
U‑20 Reader v1.0d - This online utility reads U‑20 Bulk Dump *.SYX files and displays a listing of all of the Patch Names currently stored in RAM. This can be useful for identifying specific sets to help organize your sound library. The cool thing is that you don't need to install any software. It's all done using Chrome, Firefox, Safari or whichever web browser you use. It's a new approach. This way, any computer can run the utility. Works with every browser except Internet Explorer (not really an issue for most people)

Roland Spare Parts Cross Reference

I've compiled a small cross reference chart which is useful for matching duplicate spare parts on Roland synths and samplers. I use this list to find spares on broken equipment bargains found at eBay auctions. I just bought an S‑220 for $25 which has enough spare parts for 19 different Roland synths and samplers. Gotta love eBay ANIMATED_SMILE

U-20 Mac Logo U‑20 Control Jack Templates

I designed these templates after being frustrated time and time again by having to move my keyboards away from the wall to locate where certain audio and control jacks are located. This makes it easier to plug cables in and out without having to always face the back of the synth... or use a mirror. There are four template variations with different fonts and color schemes
