Nordrack2 reading other synth’s data

On my PCMCIA card there used to be files for a different synth; probably a quadrasynth or wavestation. I would plug those into my nord an tweak away until i got something useable. I almost always wound up with something unique, often aggressive or spacey, random...and not very nord-like.

Sometimes LEDs for filter, octave, etc. were unlit. The sound characteristics would often change by pressing an unlit parameter.

I have played with pelle’s mode before, and did not get much use out of it.

Is something going on that cannot be duplicated by tweaking native nord patches? I lost 90% of these when my pc card battery ran out...so i am wondering if it is worth the trouble of downloading these files, and also the logistics of organizing the nord files that i want to save.

Sorry, the post is kinda rambly. The Nord can read patches from alesis Andromeda, quadrasynths, and some versions of the Korg wavestation. Interesting things happen that remind me of pelle mode.

I got the sysex backup how-to from an earlier post on this page. I remember why I used to have midi ox on my old PC.
