ESX Factory Programs

Post by Powelly » Tue Feb 15, 2011 10:45 am

After extensive google searching, I couldnt find a way to do this.
I want to reset the programs on the esx, not the samples.
I presume you can do this via midi dump of some file, somehow.
Just asking if anyone had done this before, and if so, how?

page 99 shows how to initialize it, erasing everything so you can start w/ a clean slate. looks like there may not be a way to restore its original patterns, but i know personally i would want to erase all of those asap regardless...

They are available at KORG website 24 hrs per day, 7 days per week...

If you can't find them, send me a PM, and I'll send them to your mail. 26MB

by the way, the patterns for the "old" Esx and the new with sd are different.


Regarding Spaceboy advice, well, the kicks are okey, also the hi hats.

I have the files, 17.6 mb, but its a .ESX file, that i have no idea what to do with.

And your post made me laugh, i cringed time and time again through those voice samples.
But #193, that one is gold.

i actually never put anything on that one, nor did anything w/ it beyond making sure it worked.

and you're both right, there ARE some fun stock samples in there, i'd just kind of prefer starting w/ a clean slate & making myself put what i want in there. don't blame you at all for wanting to save some samples it came w/ though. if you can't figure out some other way, just record them to your computer and make your own files to put back in after the init.

.esx file needs to be put onto the smartmedia card, then on the esx go to global, press shift+16 (load), select ALL (press 16 again to select, use encoder to change), select the correct esx file..

I suggest you download the manual as well..

It's a good investment anyway... sampling by hand takes a long, long, long, long time!
