Saving sample data
Here's how to save a sample or multisample that you
All samples and multisamples in the TR will be
lost when the power is turned off.
1 Insert an SD card into the slot. Alternatively, make
sure that settings are made correctly for a con-
nected external SCSI device.
2 Press the [MEDIA] key to select Media mode.
3 Press the [F2] ("Save") key.
4 If you want to save to a different device, use the
media select setting (Media:) to select the device
on which you want to save the data.
5 Press the [F8] ("UTILITY") key to access the utility
menu, and press the [F7] key to select "Save Sam-
pling Data." Press the [F8] ("OK") key to display
the following dialog box.
6 Press the [F5] ("Name") key to access the text dia-
log box, assign a ﬁlename of SMPL_DM1, and
press the [F8] ("OK") key.
7 Make sure that All is selected for the "To:" ﬁeld,
and press the [F8] ("OK") key to save the data.
When saving is completed, a ﬁle with an extension
of .KSC together with .KMP and .KSF ﬁles in folders
will be saved. For details on each ﬁle, refer to PG
p.147 "About Korg format PCM data ﬁles."
Converting a multisample into a
A multisample you created can be converted into a
program. By converting the data into a program, a
sample or multisample you created in Sampling mode
can be used in Program mode, Combination mode, or
1 Create a multisample. (
2 Press the [F1] ("Sample") key to access the SMPL
1.1: Recording, Sample page.
3 Press the [F8] ("UTILITY") key to access the utility
Press the [F7] key to select "Conv.To Prog," and
press the [F8] ("OK") key.
The following dialog box will appear.
4 In the "To:" ﬁeld, select the program into which
the data will be converted.
Bank D127 is initialized programs. We recommend
you select this program.
When you execute the Convert operation, the pro-
gram in the conversion destination location will be
overwritten and replaced by the converted pro-
5 Set the "Use Destination Program Parameters" set-
For this example, uncheck this. If you execute con-
version with this unchecked, the program will be
created with the sound that you heard in Sampling
If you want to use the program parameters of a
preloaded program, copy that program to bank
D127 before you perform this operation. Use the
"To:" ﬁeld to select that program, and check "Use
Destination Program Parameters" before you per-
form the conversion.
However if you want to convert a stereo multi-
sample with "Use Destination Program Parame-
ters" checked, you must change the "Mode
(Oscillator Mode)" to Double for the conversion
destination program ("To") before executing the
6 As necessary, press the [F5] ("Name") key to access
the text dialog box and assign a program name.
Press the [F8] ("OK") key. A dialog box will ask
you for conformation. Press the [F8] ("OK") key
once again, and the conversion will begin.
7 Listen to the converted program.
Move to Program mode, select the program (D127),
and play the keyboard to hear the sound.
The converted program settings will automatically
be stored in internal memory, but the sample data
you created will be lost when the power is turned
off. In order to reproduce the sound of the pro-
gram after the power is turned on again, you must
ﬁrst load the previously-saved sample data in
Media mode. When loading, it is best to set ".KSC
Allocation" to Clear. When saving, it is a good
idea to execute "Save All" (
samples and multisamples along with the con-
verted program, and then load all of this data
