edit VOICE
The MEX8000 is a primitive memory unit able to store 4 extra banks of 64 patch sounds for the following compatible machines:
- Korg DW-8000
- Korg EX-8000
- Korg DW-6000
- Korg Poly800 mk2
- Korg EX-800
- Korg DVP-1
- Korg SDD-330
TECH: Typical Poly800 bank is about 5Kb and Dw/ex8000 about 4kb, but the MEX -8 should backup any kind of exclusives data since it is a simple data syx recorder, unless Dipswitch setting checks for the exclusives ID header.

REVIEW : "Unless you're a digital korg fan, the MEX8000 is now totally useless : use a computer to dump and load giga times more midi data."
