Re: Korg M1 unresponsive with INT and PROG lights

If it can't be resurrected with a reset, then it's faulty for some reason, which will require some expertise (or a tech) to open it up and look to determine what the problem is, and thus how to fix it. Whether the value of the synth is worth sending it to a tech is debatable, so I guess it really de...

How to Initialize (reset), and preload on the Korg M1:-

Initialization: Hold Int, Card and Combi while turning it on.
Preload: Card Load (MPC00P)

Re: Trying to find the synth used

Maybe give us perhaps a *clue* as to which sound you are referring to? I mean, I know it's an important sound to *you*, but we are not in your head and thus don't know which sound you are talking about. If you want to know what gear the band used in general, I'm sure some research should turn someth...

Re: I must be too stupid for MIDI.....

The Q49 comes with a copy of Ableton's Live Lite and AIR Music Tech's Xpand!2 software, for performing, recording, and sequencing music right out of the box. So you probably already have the software that could do a passable job at doing what you want, that came with your keyboard... (Live Lite as ...

Re: I must be too stupid for MIDI.....

:lol: No worries. If you can get to the point where you can load your (eventual) DAW of choice, and it loads by default with a couple of tracks pre-instantiated with your instruments of choice, so you can just play and record, you'll be good to go and probably surprised it wasn't as complicated as y...

Re: I must be too stupid for MIDI.....

But, as far as I can see, it requires a DAW, which is considerably more complex than I would want to invest the substantial time to learn. Just the screen shots on the adverts look wildly intimidating! No, MIDI does not require a DAW - *you* require a DAW. :) Your initial post that was clear you wa...

Re: I must be too stupid for MIDI.....

MIDI is not hard, and there's not much you need to understand to use it, really. Basically, you plug in your USB cable from the keyboard to the computer. Now, when you play notes on the keyboard, a little message goes to the computer saying "I've hit C3 fairly hard!", "I've now let go of C3!" etc. Y...

Isham fan here too.

In fact he used to be around quite a bit on the early Logic users mailing list back in the 90s, which is actually how I first became aware of him, I think...

Re: I must be too stupid for MIDI.....

Ok well that increases the complexity as that’s a whole extra bunch of functionality to learn of more software to use.

Re: I must be too stupid for MIDI.....

It's not hard, but as it's new to you, and involves a few components, it will take some learning, as anything new always does. Not knowing stuff is nothing to do with being old, or being stupid - not knowing stuff just means you don't know stuff. Which is easily fixed with a bit of effort, time, res...

Re: sound

Not really, it doesn't have any samples that are in the ballpark, and doesn't have distortion effects.

Re: sound

trying to figure out if its a guitar sound or a electric piano synth sound or a keytar It's a synth sound or sample, but it has some characteristics of a distorted guitar timbre (slightly distorted, lots of harmonics). Nothing to do with a piano, or with any particular type of controlling keyboard.

Re: sound

It's a synth sound or sample more likely.

Why?

Re: Question about patching a 19" rack stereo multi-effects unit into a patchbay.

Patchbay re-orgs are always a bit of a headache until you figure out your needs and how best to achieve them.

It's good when it's done, though! :thumbleft:
