Hypersynth has announced the release of the Hcard-705, a multibank cartridge pair for expanding Yamaha DX5 and DX1 external memory.

Here's what they say:

Hyper-Bank is the first third-party performance bank that has been designed for Yamaha DX5 and DX1. Instead of classic overlooked DX sounds, HyperSynth focuses on getting modern and unheard tonal character out of DX5/1 dual FM engine. Hyper-bank is the result of one year effort in sound-design and deep level editing over the confusing and outdated UI of DX5 and DX1. Hyper-Bank contains 64 presets in 8 categories: Gated/Rhythmic, Synth, Pad, Yamaha Bests, Key/Piano, Bell, Bass/Lead, Misc. The sounds cover new age, ambient, retro, vintage electro, disco and EDM genres.

"Hcard-705" pair is loaded with 52 voice banks per card:

  • Hyper-Bank voices.
  • Yamaha DX1/DX5 original voice ROMs.
  • All Hcard-701 soundbanks.
  • All Yamaha VCR-1XX cartridges.

Pricing: $389 USD from the HyperSynth web store.
