Virtual Banks

PCG Tools can use files with virtual banks to store a lot of programs/combis. Below you can download them for your own use.

Kronos Preload Virtual Banks PCG File

This file contains the (zipped) default Preload data for the Korg Kronos (X) with 64 extra empty program and combi banks (of 128 patches each).

MS2000_MS2000 Empty Virtual Banks LIB file

This file contains a (zipped) LIB file for the Korg MS2000 with 64 extra empty program banks (of 16 programs each).

Other Files

KronosV2V3Rules.txt

This file contains the rules to be imported in the Program Reference changer in the Tools menu of PCG Tools. The rules can be used to use V2 (or earlier) Kronos combis and set list PCG files with a V3 programs layout. If you see this file as text in your browser, copy the contents in a file name and import the file in PCG Tools in the Program Reference Changer. For now, after loading, compress the Rules text box to press the OK button ... it can take about 10 minutes to process all rules (in the next version it will be much faster).

Bug reports

If you find a bug, make sure you use the latest version. If you can stills see the bug, please send a mail to me: Bug report

Please provide the following info:

Thanks in advance for taking the trouble; without bug reports I will probably never know of all bugs, since I don't own all Korg workstation/synths supported by PCG Tools.

Source code

The code is written in C#. For now I don't send the source code, due to the fact it could be used for commercial reasons by others. All code is copyright protected. None of my code is allowed to be used in commercial software, but can be requested for non commercial usage. When I see good/serious reasons why someone would use the code I will think about it (like serious plans to do some conversion, nice addition or porting to another platform).

Disclaimer

I am not responsible for corrupt PCGs. Therefore, always make a backup first and test regularly. I do not own all models so testing has been very limited. I am not responsible for the content of the PCGs being used with the application.

It may not be uploaded to web sites, peer to peer networks, spread by email or by other means without permission of the developer.
