- *Disclaimer for Windows users. It appears that the Mac version of microKorg SoundEditor, is not spitting out the same files as the Windows counterpart is expecting. So there's an old school cross platform compatibility issue between Mac and Windows. If you're on Windows, I'll kindly ask you to use the SysEx files with a Sysex software such as MIDIOX and follow this guide to send the .syx files to your microKORG: i.korg.com.../SysExMIDIOX.... I have reached out to Korg about it, and they told me they wanted to help me. When I have a bank file for the Windows version, I will put it here again, and you can come back and download it for your convenience. Sorry for the inconvenience! /Cuckoo
This pack contains of 128 original patches made for the the original microKORG that was released in 2002. It's a fab little synth, that has been one of the best selling synths each year it has been in existence – effectively making it one of the best selling synths of all times.
I'm celebrating it's 16th anniversary by releasing this pack. Please have a listen in the video above for a preview of all of the sounds. I've made it especially with keyboard players in mind, with the goal of creating truly versatile and useful musical patches.
The pack is also fully compatible with the recently updated microKORG-S, released in 2016. The older KORG MS2000 synth line is also compatible.
- The MicroKORG XL is not compatible. It is using a different engine. Sorry!
To send all of the files to your microKORG or microKORG-S in one go, the easiest way is to use KORG’s microKORG SoundEditor, and a MIDI interface.
In case you’re gonna use these files on a KORG MS2000 line synth, I’m not sure if the microKORG SoundEditor app will work. So I have saved all of the individual patches as sysex files, which will be more suitable for the KORG MS2000.
To send the patches over, use a Sysex Librarian app. There are many free options for computers, and some good paid apps for phones and tablets. I can recommend C6 from Elektron.
I hope this pack will breathe new life into your microKorg. It's a great synth! Happy times ahead!
