  |     Funny, that's exactly what Roland said when their VS-880
  | came out with a
  | 540 meg hard drive.  But I upgraded mine to 4.3 gig anyway (and several
  | others on the VS-880 list).  Check it out: I believe those
  | discussions and my
  | instructions are kept in some little FAQ archive now, since I
  | regularly get
  | email from people still wanting to do that upgrade themselves.  My "15
  | minutes of fame".  ;-)  A little more complicated job than the
  | Korg D-8,
  | though.  You have an internal SCSI bus and an EIDE bus
  | available to you in
  | the Rolands and a drive bay that will hold a 3.5" drive.  The
  | problem is, the
  | power supply won't tolerate any drive that draws more than 10
  | amps (more or
  | less) on startup.  So the 2.5" Toshiba drives I bought from
  | Siliconel were
  | the perfect solution.  And that doesn't always happen. BTW,
  | Javier: the D-8
  | upgrade is a piece a cake.  If it takes you ten minutes, you're
  | movin' awful
  | slow.  ;-)
