That is a seriously big chunk of data! Using Simple Sysexer My Yamaha QS300
takes about 30 seconds for a full dump.

It's a long time since I did any work with programs to send and receive SYSEX
(Acorn Archimedes) but I seem to remember that the sender could elect to send
just one massive block of data or a bunch of smaller ones. Do you know which
the Korg uses (is it switchable?)

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
