In my post of 24th June in which I discuss changing the battery on the Roland M-64C, I mentioned how sometimes it seems necessary to destroy the label to open the cartridge. I also mentioned that to help out a few people, I thought I'd design a replacement label for the Roland M-64C memory cartridge. This post elaborates on the design that I've come up with.
Roland printed the original on a super-thin metalized medium. That was difficult for me to do but my printer did manage to produce a thin, self-adhesive, vinyl label. Diverse Print & Design advised me to include a bleed layer and a cut layer on the file. The test print of version 3, was pretty good!
So as it happens, I've just repaired and modified a MKS-70 to full 'mod spec' and it's ready to ship back to Washington, USA. The customer asked me to change the battery in the M-64C that he included with his machine and this was the ideal opportunity to design a replacement label for the Roland M-64C memory cartridge.
I'm now thinking that I'm just going to give these away when I get eighties Roland gear in for repair, service or modifying. If you want to have a go at printing these yourself, you can download the Adobe Acrobat file here. Either you or your printer will need Adobe Illustrator to isolate the bleed and cut layers.
So I posted on Facebook and of course someone came back saying that they have a couple of M-16C cartridges. 😂🤣Here you go!
