Setup Setting up the M3 Editor If you want to use the M3 Editor with the M3 connected to your computer via USB, you must make sure that you have ﬁnished installing and setting-up the KORG USB-MIDI Driver before you start up the M3 Editor.
M3 will output audio signals when the M3 Plug-In Editor sends it MIDI messages. If you want to send the M3’s audio signal to an audio track of your host application and use it in conjunction with a plug-in effect etc., refer to “Using your host application to control the M3’s audio signal”...
Using your host application to control the M3’s audio signal If you want to apply a plug-in effect to the M3’s audio signal, or to control the M3’s audio sig- nal in your host application along with other audio tracks, connect the M3 to your audio interface and route the audio signal into your host application.
Create an audio instrument track, and start up “M3 Plug-In Editor.” To route the M3’s audio signal into Logic Pro 7, create an audio track or an audio AUX track. As the I/O source for that track, select the audio interface input to which you’ve connected the M3’s audio signal.
VST Instruments window. To route the M3’s audio signal to Cubase SX4, create an audio track. As the input of the track, select the audio interface input to which you’ve connected the M3’s audio signal.
Press the arm button so that the MIDI input from the external source will be sent to “M3 Plug-In Editor.” To route the M3’s audio signal to Live 6, create an audio track. As the input of the audio input/output section, select the audio interface input to which you’ve connected the M3’s audio signal.
Create a MIDI track. Choose “M3 Plug-In Editor” as the output of that MIDI track. To route the M3’s audio signal to Digital Performer 5, create an audio track or an AUX track. As the input of that track, select the audio interface input to which you’ve connected the M3’s audio signal.
Create a MIDI track. Choose “M3 Plug-In Editor” as the output of that MIDI track. To route the M3’s audio signal to Pro Tools LE 7, create an audio track or an AUX input track. As the input, select the audio interface input to which you’ve connected the...
M3’s audio signal. So that you can hear the M3’s audio signal that is being routed to the audio track, turn the monitor button on for that audio track.
To shorten the startup time, you can make settings so that this data ﬁle is loaded automati- cally when M3 Editor starts up, so that you won’t need to read the data from the M3. Refer to p.27 “Software Setup (Initial settings for M3 Editor).”...
Here you can select program, combination, sequencer, or global mode. The browser will dis- play the names of the programs, combinations, and songs that are in the M3. UTILITY lets you view and execute the utility commands that are available for the page you’ve selected.
Keyboard: This section consists of an 88-note keyboard, a pitch bend wheel, and a modulation wheel. You can click the keyboard to play notes, and even play a glissando by dragging over the key- board to the left or right. Operate the pitch bend wheel and modulation wheel by dragging them upward or downward.
Click the [PROG] mode button to enter Program mode. Click the [BROWSE] button to view the program list. Click any program to select it. Play the keyboard of the M3 and you will hear that program. When you’ve decided on a program to edit, click the [OK] button to load that...
At the right of the control surface sliders, turn on the KARMA button and DRUM button, and play the keyboard or pads on the M3 itself; a performance generated by the KARMA function and the drum track will begin playing. To change the drum pattern that is playing, change the Pattern No.
[UTILITY] button and choose a command from the menu that appears. Note: For details on utility commands that are speciﬁc to the editor, refer to “Special functions provided on the M3” (☞p.23). From the [UTILITY] button, choose the command that you want to execute.
If you click the [DUMP] button located in the upper right of each page in Global mode, the current settings will be saved in the M3. (Some pages do not have the [DUMP] button.) As an example, here’s how to write a program that you’ve edited in Program mode.
Specify the program name, category, and save destination, and click the [OK] button. If you execute a menu command (such as Swap Oscillator) on the M3 itself, the data in the Editor and the data in the M3 may lose synchronization. In this case, execute a UTILITY menu command (such as Receive Current Combi) in the Editor to receive a data dump for the current data.
The Drum Track is a pattern sequencer dedicated to playing drum patterns. You can use it in any mode: Program, Combination, or Sequencer. In M3 Editor you can turn the drum performance on/off, select drum patterns, select drum programs, and edit...
RADIAS (when the EXB-RADIAS is installed) If the EXB-RADIAS option is installed in the M3, you’ll be able to edit RADIAS programs using M3 Editor. Bank INT-F is dedicated to RADIAS programs. You can also assign desired user banks to be dedicated to storing RADIAS programs.
In Global mode, you can edit formant motion data for the RADIAS vocoder and save it in the M3’s internal memory. (This cannot be done using the M3 itself.)
Functions speciﬁc to the editor These are functions that are not found on the M3, and are available only from the editor (M3 Editor, M3 Plug-In Editor). Utility commands Load Loads editor data that was previously saved on the computer.
Transmit Current Combi/Current Prog/1 SEQ Transmit the respective data from the editor to the M3. This operation does not write the data into the M3's internal memory. You'll need to write (save) it if necessary. Note: These Receive and Transmit commands use KORG SysEx MIDI Dump to send or receive data, or to synchronize the data between the M3 and the software.
Note: The Total Recall & Data Sync Setting function is available only with M3 Plug-In Editor. Load data ﬁle automatically When M3 Editor starts up, the data ﬁle you specify here will automatically be loaded into the editor. After this process is completed, the data you checked in Total Recall & Data Sync Set- ting will be loaded via data dump.
• If you’re using a USB hub, try connecting the M3 directly to a USB port on the computer itself to see whether it will work. You can also try removing all other connected USB devices except for the M3 itself.
