Now that Korg has given us the ability to save our new samples as “user banks”, it is now possible to use several sound libraries at the same time. It’s worth taking an hour or so to set up everything, since after it’s done then all you have to do is turn on your Kronos and everything will be loaded and ready to go. After your done, you can just do a “save all” and save all your the PCG data in memory. Then if you have a disk crash, system error or if you want to load in something else, getting everything back will be easy.
Listed below is an overall view of exactly how we have things set to load for each of our PCG Kronos Sound Libraries. Note that this is just how you set up the PCG files. For more info on how to deal with the KSC sample files, visit this link.
NOTE: Getting several of our Kronos sound libraries into memory at the same time requires moving some PCG files around. Note that Kronos 2 PCG’s are set up a little differently on some libraries.
V2 & V7 Both use Program USER GG
V4 & V8 Both Use Program USER CC
V9 & V10 Both Use Program USER AA & Combi USER A
V1 & V7 Both use Combi USER G
V3, V4 & V7 Both use Combi USER C
Since two sound libraries can not occupy the same bank at the same time, you have to move one of them to another bank in order to be able to access all seven sound libraries at the same time. To do that, follow the instructions AT THIS LINK:
Don’t forget to check your combis after you have moved things to see if they are referencing the correct programs. If they sound weird, then they are probably not set up correct.
