Nothing specific. But any Roland style can probably be edited in Makeup Tools, unless it is perhaps an EA7 style using the new ethnic sounds and kits. Basically, only the EA7 steps outside of the range of Tones, so, even if you don't have the exact same sound or kit (say from a BK9), you can probably substitute something workable if not an exact copy.

The good news is, ALL Roland styles will load and play in ALL Roland arrangers. The only problem is taking styles from newer models and using them in older machines. For instance, the G/E series could only address one drum kit. All newer Roland's (BK and EA7) can address multiple kits. So styles with multiple kits won't play right on G?E series arrangers. The EA7 has extensive ethnic sounds and kits, which no other Roland can play. So those, though they WILL play, won't sound right.

Check out out Files section, and see if there's anything you haven't got yet. And, if not completely familiar with the Makeup Tools, get familiar with that... It is your doorway into making styles that aren't 'perfect' when you first play them into something highly usable...

Earlier this week I purchased a BK7M and I was sent two USB sticks with extra styles ... I have attached them to this post for anyone who may enjoy them - I don't know what they are like as I haven't yet turned the BK7M on ... still in a box - but today's the day ;)
