I just took a quick look and saw a lot of illegal characters in the patchnames and labels.

Avoid using " ' # $ & ; : , . * + ? ! /@ in labels just to be safe.

Use search and replace to switch them out for benign characters.

I used the file from roland for "JUNO-Di" drum instrument definition file.
I just changed "JUNO-Di_Rhythm+GM2" to "JUNO-DS_Rhythm+GM2".
It should work.

Fu-min:(

The file doesn't seem to be fully debugged. Those colons in the labels as well as all the periods and and ampersands are sure to cause trouble.

INS files are basic scripts written in C++ originally.

Basically avoid C++ operators in a file unless they have been assigned in the paramters and then only as assigned.

The original file for Juno Di from Roland, it was like this. I just add some banks and notes for Juno DS.
But I will try.

You'd be surprised how many buggy files have been released and need cleaning up.

Also you should merge that into the INS file for the regular patches in order to get a fully functioning INS file that supports DRUMS AND INSTRUMENTS.

I'm still seeing periods or commas and ampersands in a few patch names and labels.

BTW, my Juno DS is not hooked up so I can't test any of these myself.

I should go to sleep now.
It's 1:20 am in Japan.
Thank you for your advice.

BTW, I don't have JUNO-DS.
I'm testing it with my Soniccell and Cakewalk.

Have a good sleep. A bit more cleaning up and you'll soon have a working file.

I had a couple of hours free to debug and fix the files. Here's a new Roland Juno DS INS file in working order complete with patches and drums.

By all means feel free to redistribute the file and you're very welcome.

Please. Just delete the rhythm only file.

The file I uploaded has all the DS patch info AND the drum kits you specified.

It is now a standalone file that completely controls both drums and patches for any Juno DS running under cakewalk.

There may be additional drumkits not listed in the Di file however which I did not research or add.

BTW, I tested my INS file on my Juno DS88 hooked up to my Cakewalk computer.

As far as I could tell it's working perfectly.
