Sample ROM Chip Dumping to File Question

Hey All,

One of my plugin sample ROM boards is starting to fail on me. I swap out these ROM boards often and now a couple of the contacts have heavy signs of wearing.

Seeing how I am the owner of this ROM, is there any way I can dump the sample data off of the chips to file so that perhaps later create a new/back-up board? I know one can probably refinish the contacts, but then other contacts will wear out too later at some point.

If there is any resources for ROM extraction, I'd be very interesting in looking into it.


PS. These boards (Ensoniq EXP boards) are no longer in production and are hard to find. I have near gear so its not a matter of buying something new, just like the ROM boards I have.
