Save Exclusive (Receive and Save MIDI Exclusive Data)
This command receives exclusive data, accumulates it in the
unused portion of the internal memory, and saves the data
to media as an .EXL ﬁle.
The remaining amount of internal memory depends on how
much data is used in Sequencer mode.
This command is valid only when the current directory is a
1 When you select "Save Exclusive," this instrument will
be ready to receive exclusive data. The following dialog
box will appear.
2 Transmit the exclusive data that you wish to save to this
instrument. While the data is being received, the display
will indicate "Status=RECEIVING MIDI DATA." When
reception ends, the size of the received data and the size
of the remaining free area will be rewritten. The display
will change to "Status=AWAITING MIDI DATA," and
you can continue transmitting exclusive data to this
instrument. During reception, the [F7] ("Cancel") key
and the [F8] ("OK") key cannot be pressed.
3 Press the [F5] ("Name") key to access the text dialog box,
and specify the ﬁlename (☞OG p.44).
4 To save the data, press the [F8] ("OK") key. To cancel
without saving, press the [F7] ("Cancel") key.

Sample data in internal sampling RAM that was recorded or
edited in Sampling mode (if the EXB-SMPL option is
installed), or loaded in Media mode, can be exported (writ-
ten) to media as an AIFF or WAVE format sample ﬁle.
This is valid only when the current directory is a DOS direc-
Normally, it is recommended that you use Save All or
Save Sampling Data to save sample data in Korg format
(.KSC, .KMP, .KSF). This will allow you to save the data
in a way that preserves the state of the multisamples
(and the samples that they use) as they exist in internal
sampling RAM memory.
Use "Export Smpl AIF/WAV" if you wish to use an
AIFF or WAVE format compatible application on your
computer to work with samples that were recorded or
edited on the TR.
"Export Smpl AIF/WAV" does not export multisample
ﬁles. The exported AIFF or WAVE format samples can
be re-loaded, but if the sample number when saving is
different than the sample number when loading, you
may need to re-make settings, such as selecting the
sample for each index of a multisample.
Furthermore, the following parameters set in Sampling
mode are lost by "Export Smpl AIF/WAV."
• Sample Name
• Loop Tune (SMPL 3.1–1b. "Tune: Loop Tune")
• Reverse (SMPL 3.1–1b. "Rev: Reverse")
Samples that are handled by the TR as stereo will be
exported as two independent L and R ﬁles.
1 Select "Export Smpl AIF/WAV" to access the following
2 In "Format," select either AIFF or WAVE as the ﬁle for-
mat for export.
3 Press the [F5] ("Name") key to move to the text dialog
box, and specify the ﬁlename (☞OG p.44).
4 In "To," specify the content that will be exported.
One Sample: The single selected sample will be
The ﬁlename will be the ﬁlename of the .AIF or .WAV ﬁle.
Initially, the ﬁlename will automatically be set to the ﬁrst
four characters (uppercase) of the sixteen-character sam-
ple name + the sample number.
If the individual sample being exported will not ﬁt on a
single volume of media (e.g., SD card), it cannot be
All Samples: All samples will be exported.
It will not be possible to specify the ﬁlename. The ﬁle-
name will automatically be assigned as the ﬁrst four
characters (uppercase) of the sixteen-character sample
name + the sample number.
Samples in One Multisample: All samples used by the
selected multisample will be exported.
Only ﬁve characters of the ﬁlename can be speciﬁed. The
ﬁve-character ﬁlename + the index number (001–128) in
the multisample will be assigned automatically.
Initially, the ﬁlename will automatically be set to the MS
+ the multisample number (000–999).
Sample selected for index 001 → MS000001.AIF
Sample selected for index 002 → MS000002.AIF
Sample selected for index 001 → MS001001.AIF
Sample selected for index 002 → MS001002.AIF
When exporting All Samples or Samples in One Mul-
tisample, and all of the sample data does not ﬁt on one
volume of media (e.g., SD card), another dialog box will
appear, directing you to specify the next media.
(☞p.152 "If the data does not ﬁt on the media when
saving") However at this time if a single sample is
larger than the capacity of the media, the sample cannot
be exported. Either specify media with a larger capac-
ity, or press "Skip" to omit exporting that sample and
proceed to exporting the next sample.
5 To export the data, press the [F8] ("OK") key. To cancel
without exporting, press the [F7] ("Cancel") key.
