Painfully Slow Progress with the DR-880 Data

Well I suppose I never said this would be quick when I posted about my attempts to map out all the necessary data for the DR-880 - Roland Boss DR-880 Preset Data List. I'm now well under way with mapping out the individual sounds used for each of the preset drum kits. When I say well under way, I've now hand transcribed the instruments for 40 of the kits onto a form I've created, and I've now got 12 of the sheets entered cell by laborious cell entered into Excel - that's 720 so far from a grand total of 6,000 that are needed before this can be considered complete. I wouldn't mind quite so much, but there is a sizeable amount of duplication going on here, then again, as there are only 440 sounds available to map across those 6,000 locations, that's hardly surprising. In an ideal world there would be an easy way of telling where the bulk of the duplication is, but the only way to find out is to look at every last mapping on the DR-880 to find out. How dull? Still I'm sure it will all be in a good cause... yeah right!
