I recently picked up a used Roland MV-30. It’s in excellent condition and supposedly a very good vintage sequencer with lots of unique features. One big problem though is that in order to use the Roland MV-30, like the Roland S-50 or W-30, it requires an OS Boot Disk. Unfortunately this disk did not come with the Roland MV-30. So I’ve been spending the day scouring the web trying to find a download image to create a floppy OS boot disk. So far no luck, but hopefully soon I’ll find one. If someone out there does happen to use or have a Roland MV-30 and could spare a moment to send me an image of the OS via email, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’d even compensate you for it as well. Some people are selling the OS Boot disk online but they are charging $30-50 for shipping to Japan which is insane. So I’m a bit stuck. There is also a Yahoo Group for the Roland MV-30, but like many nowadays it looks abandoned and not accepting new members. Once I acquire a working boot disk, I’ll write a follow-up on my initial impressions of the Roland MV-30 Sequencer. Thank you!
This is the latest OS version for the Roland MV-30 MStudio Sequencer but I’ll take any version I can get.
ROLAND MV-30 Operating System Startup Disk v1.09.1
UPDATE: I now have two Roland MV-30 OS Boot disks posted below. Both I think are the same, but are from different sources. Is there a difference between V1.0 and V1.09.1? I’m not sure. THANK YOU to all the individuals who contributed the images for the Roland MV-30. Hopefully these images will help others.
