It seems like no matter how far the technology for music making comes, there is always one constraint rearing its ugly head: memory. If you up your digital storage, your days of wasting time deleting samples to free up space will be behind you.
Sweetwater carries hard to find RAM memory modules for a number of applications. For example, when was the last time you saw a stick of 72 pin, non-parity 32MB generic PC memory? Probably not within recent memory, unless you happen to have an awesome older sampler or keyboard that uses these. These memory sticks are getting harder to find every day, so you might want to think about picking up several. While they generally last for quite a while, they will eventually quit on you. Save yourself a headache by keeping spares around.
We also stock a supply of 512MB-1GB flash RAM memory cards formatted for specific makes and models of keyboards. Upgrading your keyboard memory opens up your sound library options. Once you've got the memory card installed and formatted, you can pull in sounds from outside sources via your computer such as sound libraries on USB sticks and downloaded sounds from the internet. Nothing inspires the creative juices like expanding your sonic choices.
Digital sound manipulation is always a memory intensive art. Upgrading your keyboard or sampler memory is a great way to open up your options and try tricks that your gear would normally have trouble with. It also keeps you from having to do the memory dance on stage just to get your samples and sound libraries loaded. It's the difference between trying to paint with a tiny pallet with a limited number of colors, and having a nice big surface to mix and blend hues with the only limit being your imagination.
It can be pretty tricky figuring out which type of memory your particular device requires. Often times the manual will say one thing, but the specifications on the memory itself doesn't appear to be exactly the same. The best way to be sure you're getting RAM that will work for your device is to pick up the phone and give us a call. We can help verify the requirements of your gear and their compatibility with the modules we carry. Our Sales Engineers have a ton of hands on experience with an immense variety of gear. This means we can also help out with any questions that may come up about how to install and format your new memory properly. We're committed to helping you get your sampler or keyboard upgraded with the right RAM memory card and get you back to making awesome music.
