KORG TR Parameter Manual: Media Mode; Files, Directories, And Icons

Music workstation.
Hide thumbs


In this mode, various types of internal memory data can be
saved/loaded to/from SD card or an external SCSI device (if
the EXB-SMPL option is installed).
For the types of SD card that can be used, refer to OG p.100.
About the EXB-SMPL option
If the EXB-SMPL option (sold separately), along with its 72-
pin SIMM memory module (16 Mbyte sample data RAM), is
installed, you will be able to save/load multisample and
sample data created in Sampling mode (☞p.147, 153), or
load/export AIFF files or WAVE files that were created on
your computer (☞p.148, 154).
Sample data RAM can be expanded by installing up to two
72-pin SIMM modules of either 32 MB or 16 MB (total maxi-
mum 64 MB).
Even if the EXB-SMPL is not installed, you can install
RAM in the 72-pin SIMM slots to allow loading of mul-
tisample or sample data created on the TRITON series,
or AIFF files and WAVE files. However in this case, it
will not be possible to edit the multisample or sample
In addition, an external SCSI device (hard drive, removable
media, etc.) can be connected to the SCSI connector of the
EXB-SMPL, allowing data to be saved on a hard drive etc. in
the same way as on an SD card, or allowing you to load data
from CD-ROM.
For details on formatting, refer to p.156. For details on con-
nections and ID settings for external SCSI devices when the
EXB-SMPL option (sold separately) is installed, refer to the
operation manual included with the EXB-SMPL.

6. Media mode

Files, directories, and icons

The TR manages data on SD card and other media in a hier-
archical manner, using files and directories. The contents of
a file (whether it is a file or a directory) are indicated not
only by the name but also graphically by an icon. Files and
directories have differently shaped icons.
On the TR, files and directories that can be recognized by
MS-DOS (i.e., read by an MS-DOS computer) are referred to
as DOS files and DOS directories.
Various types of DOS files are distinguished by the exten-
sion that is added to the filename.
In the case of a DOS file with an extension other than listed
below, selecting "Load selected" to access the dialog box
will cause the file to be considered to be a Standard MIDI
File (SMF). However, non-SMF files cannot be loaded.
When you save a file on the TR, one of these filename exten-
sions will automatically be added as appropriate for the
type of data.
If you change the filename extension of the following
files, they will be handled as undefined files when you
attempt to load them again; they will not be loaded cor-
