    I have a Roland S-10 (first-hand) and a Roland S-220 (second-hand). Both have a Quick-Disk problem so I can’t load my (almost) hundred 2.8 disks recorded 3 decades ago.
    Therefore, ANY substitute/replacement which could allow me to recover my samples from those pesky 2.8 disks would be awesome!

      The quick disk replacement wont read the disks directly, but the good news is I do have a working drive that can read them and can transfer them to a PC over MIDI sample dump. Then they can be stored on the PC and sent back to the sampler and stored in the quick disk replacement, all the sample banks. If you want me to back all your disks up to MIDI sample dumps, so you can use a PC to load your library into your samplers let me know. Its the S110 librarian. Check google..

    Happy New Year!

    Wow ! I have made an offer on a really nice little S220 but I think it has a dead drive , I used to own one back in the day and used to get some great string arpegs out of it . I was looking for information on the Quick disk drive and found this ! Glad to know some of us refuse to let this great little sampler die !

    Great work, keep this little baby alive! Say, I was wondering, I pulled out my S220 recently and the belt was shot, all I had was a rubber band, it’s working, but can I ask where you got the replacement belt from? Thanks and great job, cheers.

    Very interesting. What was the model of OLED you used?

    Fantastic work! This was super helpful in replacing my ldc and battery. Any news on the QD replacement? What’s the web page for it (that you hinted at right at the end)?

      Hi, The QD disk emulator project has moved back a bit as I am working for Behringer on 2 new analog synths. But I do aim to have the emulator done by Xmas, as well as the modification to the S-10 OS code. Rob
