I went zip with my EMU Ultra.
You can get 2 (they are pretty cheap on ebay) just one scsi and one USB or
even parallel (if you system has a parallel port on it) Then I just swap
sounds via a zip disk to the internal HD of the Ultra. (I know it's not a
Roland but same concept) I'm sure whatever PC you are using will have a USB
port. Or you can share it via a network share.

HTH

Good luck,
Rob
