    Korg M1 card alternatives?

    Right now I load my various M1 patches using MidiOx from the PC. Cards would be better but, as M1 users know, they are insanely expensive each never mind a gigging library.
    Are there any alternatives like a USB drive adapter like the one for the DSS-1 or anything ? An 'SD slot' kit would be a dream.

    Generally they are selling for £50 - £75 each here

    Thanks Moogerfooger. That would be factory sounds many of which are padding or novelty .Would any one actually use "Lore" for example? I'd be embarrassed to. However I admit I'm not rich so I have to work with what I've got.

    My experience with Korgs is that they can do better with bespoke patches. With the DSS-1 I have some great Steinway Piano samples Brass and strings from a now defunct company in Germany.
    I am sure the M1 will retain a following just as the DX7 probably does.
    I do sysex in from the PC but it would be nice to have a laptop drive tucked away in the M1 rather than have to plan in advance what to load before I take it anywhere.

    BTW you can dump your patch librarys to external sequencer tracks as system exclusive messages. I used to keep them stored on floppy disks on my Akai asq10 sequencer. If i needed a different patch library i just loaded the sequence for the library and set the M1 to receive SYSEX and hit play.

    Short of using a computer with an editor / librarian program, I don't know of any...
