Some MR-61 patches for you.

You can tell I miss the TS and predecessors' patch
select buttons by looking at the descriptions below. Fortunately, the instrument
permits any controller to be used as a switch between layers, and I've
chosen the modwheel.
Sound philosophy for me: rich, but *in tune*!
I most often tweak factory patches to reduce the detuning to a more musical
level except for real special effects. For pads, I'll emphasize subtle
amounts of random detuning for built-in chorusing (though added chorus
effects are still very nice too).
They are zipped directly from the PC-format disk
files the MR keyboards produce. If you've got the rack, I guess I can provide
them in the Unisyn format -- just ask.
a pretty good pipe organ pincipal chorus built from one sample of the flute.
Advancing the modwheel adds to the 8-foot principal, in succession: 4',
2 ', 2-2/3', and 16'. It's pretty voice intensive, since each pitch is
an added oscillator!
a harp tweaked to my taste, with a subtle sustaining pad. The modwheel
will add the sound an octave lower in the middle of its travel; near the
end of its travel, it will play the octave lower only.
the "Legato Strings" patch layered with a vocal sound an octave higher.
based on the ComfortZone provided patch, advancing the mod wheel will change
the sound to four different variations of this basic two-voice pad. (And
how nice they sound with just two voices!) The last one, made of two transwaves,
is my favorite, and I'm now experimenting with more transwave combinations.
(sound bank): a bank of nice thick layers I made once. These have not
been tweaked in detail, so some may be using more voices than needed for
