Notes On Using Electric Guitar Loops Imported Into Kronos Drum Track

Midi Tips No Comments »

Korg Kronos – Electric Guitar Loop Info

Kronos Electric Guitars V3 includes 16 guitar loops. There’s a few things to be said about how they work, so we thought it would be best to write a blog post about how to use them.

Each loop has been loaded into the Kronos Drum track and can be accessed from there. The loops are saved in the User-DD Program Bank, Programs 32-47. However, while the loops are stored in those program slots, the actual program is blank, except for when you turn on the drum track and you will hear the loop play. All you will hear is the loop. Nothing else is included in the program.

The real fun begins when you take those programs and add it to a combi. The loops are added to Part Ten, where the Drum Track usually goes. When you do this, you sync the loop to everything else in the combi. So, you can have drums, bass and guitar all playing at the same time. Any combi that has a guitar loop included will have the key that the loop is in as part of the name. For example, Combi #4 – Big Bad Guitarzan Eb LP, means the loop in that combi is in the key of Eb.

We let you know the key of each loop to give you a heads up on what key to play when the loop is running. The limiting thing about the loops (while they sound great), is that they will only play in “one key at a time”. So anytime the loop is playing in (for example) Big Bad Guitarzan Eb, you have to play in the key of Eb. The same goes for any combi that has a guitar loop included.

We have set all the combis that use the loops so that some of the eight KARMA scenes have the loop tuned on and some of them have the loop turned off. So, during the scenes that the loop is turned off, you can play in any key that you want. You can always mute part ten if you want to turn off the loop at any time.

Another thing to note is the tempo of the combi has to match the tempo of the program, or else the loop will not play correctly when inserted into the combi. So, don’t change the tempo of the combi while the loop is playing. Also note that when your creating you own combi using the loop that you have you make both the program and combi the same tempo.

Here’s a quick guide to the loops and tempos:

Chung Loop 1 – 93.13 BPM
Chung Loop 2 – 64.60 BPM
Chung Loop 3 – 67.39 BPM
Chung Loop 4 – 201.43 BPM
Chung Loop 5 – 96.35 BPM
Chung Loop 6 – 96.35 BPM
Chung Loop 7 – 226.24 BPM

Rock Loop 1 – 60.52 BPM
Rock Loop 2 – 65.72 BPM
Rock Loop 3 – 120.74 BPM
Rock Loop 4 – 56.16 BPM

Power Loop 1 – 70.22 BPM
Power Loop 2 – 66.26 BPM
Power Loop 3 – 55.29 BPM
Power Loop 4 – 87.91 BPM
Power Loop 5 – 68.45 BPM

Loops with the very fast tempos, like Chung Loop 4 – 201.43 BPM are should actually be set at half that tempo (100.71) to have everything sync up correctly.

Please note that not all the guitar loops have been used in our combis. The ones that were left out can be inserted into any custom programs or combis that you would like to make yourself. We choose not to use the loops in all sixteen combis, since we wanted to have a mixed set of both traditional and guitar loops set up in the drum track. Either way it’s something cool and new for Kronos. We hope you will enjoy the results.

Korg Kronos 2 Loading Tips

Midi Tips No Comments »

Thank you for your purchase of our Korg Kronos Sounds. Our Kronos sounds were created on the original Kronos 1. The Kronos 2 has a different program order, so when loading into Kronos 2 some adjustments need to be made. Korg has simplified the process with the release of the 3.0.3 OS.

Kronos 2 owners just have to choose “yes” when the message about remaping pops up. As long as you have 3.0.3 or higher then it will remap everything on the fly. Just save the PCG file with the new mapping set up after you load. Then it will all set up for you if you need to reload it at any time.

If your new to loading sounds on the Kronos, please read the loading instructions provided with your download. Each sound library is set up a little differently. All sound libraries include a PCG file. PCG’s include Programs, Combis & Global data. Once loaded, the PCG sounds stay in the Kronos memory until you load something over it. Most of our sound libraries include 64 programs and 32 combis in the PCG, but the amount varies depending of which sound library that your working with. Other sound libraries also include a KSC file. KSC files include new sample data. The Kronos will not hold sample data in memory when you turn it off, so the KSC file has to be reloaded each time your start up Kronos.

New users may also be confused on how to set up the UserBank.KSC file, from one of our libraries that includes new sample data. So unless you have experience loading new samples, we suggest that you just set up and load the data off your USB drive. That will quickly get you going and you can start playing your new sounds right away. Then, after you get more experience on how everything works, you can set up the UserBank and the Auto Load and you will be a real pro when it comes to loading new sounds into your Kronos.

Here’s a quick and simple way to get yourself up and running right away. Your loading everything off your USB drive.

1- Insert your USB drive into one of the USB slots in the back of Kronos.

2- Choose “Disk” and select your USB drive.

3- Find the Kid Nepro Kronos folder

4- Choose NEPRO.KSC” and choose “Load”.  Load that first.  Select: Clear Sampling Mode Data – Load Method: RAM

5- After the KSC file loads, choose NEPRO.PCG” and choose “Load”.

6- Choose “OK”. Data will load in a few seconds.

You can also load the PCG first and the KSC second. Either way will work. Just make sure you load them one at a time. Loading them separately will avoid errors, but it’s possible to load them both at once.

Remember that a box should pop up about the remapping. Just follow the above instructions to remap everything on the fly.

New Release For Korg Kronos – V13 Electric Pianos

New Kid Nepro Releases No Comments »

Korg Kronos Volume #13 – Electric Pianos

Kid Nepro’s Electric Piano sound collection for Kronos contains a great mix of Mod-7 and EP1 programs. A wide assortment of your favorite Electric Pianos. NOW ONLY $25. USD.

32 EP programs included. The first sixteen programs use the Mod-7 engine and emulate the classic DX7 electric piano sound that was used on countless recordings during the 80’s and 90’s. The next eight programs use the EP-1 engine to create a more traditional Rhodes or Wurlitzer Electric Piano sound. The last eight creates something new for Kronos by combining both engines, with EP-1 using the first EXi and Mod-7 using the second EXi. We relied heavily on the effects to boost the sound and give the programs more bite, which will help you cut through your live mix or studio session.

There’s also a several effects added to the controls, which add a nice variety to each program. We usually set: SW1 = Chorus, SW2 = Phaser, JS +Y = Tremelo, JS -Y = Delay, Knob 5 = Drum Kit Delay, Knob 6 = Drum Kit Filter, Knob 7 = Drum Kit Pitch Shift, Knob 8 = Reverb

Kronos E-Pianos is perfect for your next studio recording or live gig. Or if you just want to jam along, the cool KARMA grooves included on all 32 Programs will have you jamming for hours.
