Create an Operating System Disk of your SP-808

So, you’re the owner of a Roland SP-808 and you want to update it to the EX-version. Nowadays Roland provides the updates on their website and also with the necessary software to arrange it. Nice, Roland!

But there’s also another way to update and to save your Operating System to a Zip Disk but this is not supported by Roland.

In fact: you can easily create a back up from your system software with your own SP-808 without the use of a computer. And you can share this created Zip Disk with other SP-808 owners. How? Read along and good luck!
