Computer interface software for the Oberheim Prommer
Promenade allows transferring files between your computer and an Oberheim Prommer.
You can use the Prommer to "burn" EPROMs for use in drum machines such as
the Oberheim DMX and DX, Linn LM-1, LinnDrum and Linn 9000, SCI Drumtracks and others.
Promenade can also be used without a Prommer to preview sound files, combine
multiple files into one and convert between binary, WAV and Intel Hex file formats.
