Get your patches via FREE e-mail delivery.

Not sure how e-mail delivery works? It's quick, simple, and FREE! And best of all, you can have your new sounds within hours of placing your order.

Here is how it works: After you place your order, we e-mail you a user name and a password along with a link to our download site. Just click on the link in the e-mail, sign in with the user name and password and download your new sounds. After you download, save the sounds to your computer hard drive or a PC formatted floppy disk, smart media card or CD-ROM. Then you can load in our sounds from your synths floppy, CD or Smart Media Device.

If your synth does not have a floppy drive then you can load in the sounds through your synths "MIDI port", by doing a System Exclusive (SysEx) data transfer. We provide the software with your order that lets you load the sounds into your synth. For more info on how that all works please check out our Sysex Made Simple Tutorial. If you have any questions or problems with the e-mail delivery we will be happy to assist. Go Green! If you never did it before you will be amazed at how quick and easy it is. Why spend more money on shipping and have to wait longer too? E-mail delivery is the way to go.
