KingKORG Owner's manual
Connecting a MIDI device or computer
You'll need to make these connections if you want to use the
KingKORG's keyboard or controllers to control an external MIDI
sound module or to use a different MIDI keyboard or a sequencer to
control the KingKORG's sound generator. (PG: "6. MIDI parameters)
Connecting the AC adaptor
You must use the included AC adaptor. Using a different AC
adaptor may cause malfunctions.
Be sure that the AC outlet provides the correct voltage for your
AC adaptor.
Connect the included AC adapter to the DC12V jack located on
the rear panel.
To prevent the plug from being pulled out accidentally, wrap
the power cord around the hook on the rear panel. Be careful
not to apply excessive force to the collar of the DC plug.

Turning the power on/off

Turning the power on
Before you power‐on the KingKORG, you must power‐off any
external output device such as your powered monitor speakers.
Turn the KingKORG's VOLUME knob all the way toward the
left to minimize unwanted audio artifacts during startup.
Press and hold the power switch until the main display
appears; then release the power switch.
When the KingKORG starts up, the main display will show
information such as the program number and program name.
With the volume lowered on your monitor speakers or other
external output system, turn on the power of your output system.
Slowly raise the KingKORG's VOLUME knob while you
adjust the volume of your output system.
Turning the power off
Never turn off the power while data is being saved. Doing so
may cause the KingKORG's data to be damaged.
Lower the volume of your monitor speakers or other external
output system, and turn off the power of your output system.
Turn the KingKORG's VOLUME knob all the way toward the
left, and press and hold the power switch until the main
display goes blank.
Connect the plug
to an AC outlet.
Auto power-off
The KingKORG has an auto power‐off function. When a certain duration
of time has elapsed without user input on the front panel buttons or
knobs, or without the keyboard being played, the power will turn off
automatically. With the factory settings, this is set to four hours.
If desired, you can disable this function as follows.

(GLOBAL) button to enter Global mode.

save the global settings. (OM: p.21 "1. Saving global settings")
If you turn off the power without saving, the changes you've
made to the global settings will be discarded. If you want to
use your edited settings in the future, be sure to save them.
