The DPM 3 is a Peavey synthesizer. I'm fairly sure the memory cards are the same, but it is probably formatted or set up to work in the synthesizer, not the Profex.

I tried a Telonics 15 in my NV400. HATED IT! For about a year, I would swap (several times) between it and my BW 1502, and I could never get the sweet, warm tone that the BW gives me.
