After finishing my Microkorg SysEx dumper I thought that it would be cool if I could do the same thing for my old EM-1. So I did.
This tool allows you to download the currently active pattern from your EM-1 and upload patterns to the edit buffer from where you can save and edit them.
Communication is done either via legacy OSS midi ports at /dev/midi* or using the ALSA rawmidi ports at /dev/snd/midi*.
em1sd can also print a rough description of a downloaded pattern like the bpm, part settings and individual patterns.
