I recently plugged in the old KORG Poly800. One of the early mass produced polyphonic Synths.
Unfortunately the batteries had drained, and the sound settings were completely gone. Now it is possible to restore the sound settings from the 20 year old cassette tape, if you a) would be able to find the original tape, and b) would have a cassette player. Unfortunately I have neither.
There are two ways you can go about this. Either you can restore all original sound settings manually from the documentation (pdf here) or you can download a “wav” file with the original program from the POLY800 cassette. Connecting the Poly800 to your computer and fiddling a bit with the output level took me about 5 minutes.
