>How do you determine if you have a MIDI loop?

Midi loops usually happen with instruments that can merge Midi by
themselves, i.e. when the Midi out jack doubles as Midi thru. The effects
range from random notes sounding after you hit a key, to devices locking up
until you disconnect one of the offending Midi cables.

In your setup, what you do on the M1’s front panel is sent out over Midi
and ends up back into the M1. So it does receive double commands (one
internally, one over Midi), which may cause some sluggishness. But this is
not a real loop, and it shouldn’t affect note information.

>The way the light flashes when it’s receiving MIDI

The light flashes twice for each note: note-on and note-off. In Vision’s
list window, it’s easy to check for double notes in your sequence. If there
are: is your Roland controller keyboard sending on several channels
simultaneously? Vision has a “Select duplicates” command to repair
sequences with double notes.

>I’ve checked the <Overflow> parameter on the <Global> page but its turned off.

Right, when overflow is on and all the M1’s voices are in use, incoming
notes are passed on to the Midi out, and will cause a loop in your setup.

I don’t think the Pocket Merge is doing any harm. The “front-panel”
sluggishness should happen without it just as well. An actual loop would
causes far more trouble, that’s for sure.

Hi there!
I’ve had my T1 since the start (1989) and I’ve never really used it…
until now. Does anyone know of a shareware utility that will read and
write T1 sample disks (so that I don’t have to use the slooooow MIDI
sample dump) and a decent windows-based editor?
Is anyone interested in trading T1-sounds (with a sysex dumper facility
that actually works…) for some of my samples from my extensive collec-
tion? I have approx. 2000 samples, all in the house/techno area, and am
willing to swap disk for disk (ie. you send me a disk with sounds, I’ll
send you a disk with properly formatted samples of your preferred choice)

Hi everybody,

Seems that I got a nice discussion going about editors etc. Can’t wait
for my PC to be fixed so that I can try some sites myself!

Is there anyone out there willing to share their patches (ie. sound
programs and/or combinations) with me? I have very little patches myself,
but I would like to reiterate that I am willing to share some of my
samples (lots of techno noises, basses, drums and loops) in exchange.

Also, there seems to be a real shortage of shareware editors out there.
Is anyone using a commercial package that they can recommend?

Subject: RE: Combi parameter changes over MIDI

Hi Pekka
Thanks for you Christmas wishes ’cause I need them….
About your request, I think the only way to achieve pan movements and
related things is sys-ex messages. But pay attention that this could be
very tricky. In fact there a sys-ex string that correspnds to every
movement you make on M1 keypad. Just to give you a little suggestion: try
to put your software sequencer into recording mode and then randomly push
some buttons of the M1 keypad.
If your sequencer records not only notes and controllers but also sys-ex
data, you’ll see at the end of the recording process (into the track you
selected for recording) a lot of sys-ex strings that for now are
meaningless to you.
But if you learn how to recognize them, you’re done. One of the basic
things I’ve learnt from sys-ex strings is how to make a bank change (as you
know M1 doesn’t support it). As I told you before to ‘squeeze’ from your M1
the right sys-ex strings you need to do the follwing things:
– – put your software sequencer into recording mode;
– – push on the M1 keypad the ‘PROGRAM’ button;
– – stop the recording;
– – give a look inside the track’s content.
Now you’ve recorded a sys-ex string made to reach the PROGRAM Bank.
To check if what you’ve just done is right:
– – Put your M1 into COMBINATION Mode;
– – Playback the track you recorded earlier that contains a sys-ex string to
change bank. To your amazemznt you’ll see in a while M1 changing from COMBI
to PROGRAM.
In the same way you can record the right sys-ex string to reach the COMBI
Mode and so on.
Here some hints:
To call up an INTERNAL PROGRAM
F0 42 30 19 4E 02 10 F7
F0 42 30 19 4E 12 00 F7
(+ program change)

To call up an INTERNAL COMBINATION
F0 42 30 19 4E 00 10 F7
F0 42 30 19 4E 10 00 F7
(+ program change)

To call up a CARD PROGRAM (whether it’s a RAM or ROM Card)
F0 42 30 19 4E 02 10 F7
F0 42 30 19 4E 12 01 F7
(+ program change)

To call up a CARD COMBINATION (whether it’s a RAM or ROM Card)

>Is there a way to have control over

Apart from tricks with Sysex as described by Michele, panning can be
controlled by assigning the same sound to two Midi channels in a Combi. Pan
one hard left and the other hard right. By sending volume messages, you can
“fake” panning and do other effects. Yes, this requires two tracks of your
sequencer. Yes, it eats twice the number of voices.

Another trick for people with voices to spare: starting from factory
combination 87, Piano L+R, set “key window top” to G9 for all programs, and
“key window bottom” to C-1. Then, set “velocity window top” to 19, 34, 49,
64, 79, 94, 109, 127 and “velocity window bottom” to 1, 20, 35, 50, 65, 80,
95, 110.

Now you have a piano patch with velocity sensitive panning. Try
substituting a program that doesn’t respond to velocity much. I use
something like this to “spread” pad-type sounds.

Try messing with the panning to make it more extreme. Or set effect 2 to
Cross  Delay, put the effects in Parallel and set P3 and P4 to L and R.
Then pan the rightmost program to C+D. Now, the loudest notes will have
delay.

>With other gear (like ESI-32) it’s easy.

That’s right…

A couple of years ago I downloaded a demo version of MidiQuest from Compuserve.
It comes with drivers for M1 and a couple of other synths (it’s an
editor/librarian).
It stops after it’s been running 15 minutes (cause it’s only a demo), but on a
system that multitasks it’s pretty easy to reset the system clock while the
MidiQuest program is running. Start the pgm at 8:00 pm, it thinks it will shut
itself down at 8:15 pm, but you set the system time to 7 am three days ago…

It also came with a bank of pgms containing, by all known human standards, the
best M1 distorted guitar patch in the universe. And if anyone has any that are
more worthy, please email them to me for ‘evaluation purposes…’.  :->

I am completely new in the work with keyboard (M1). So my question is,

patches for the m1. I have seen on my way trough the WWW several
programs all dealing with only a few patches. An original demoversion
for a bankloader (unfortunately for Atari) i got from the gunther carstensen
Verlag in Germany. But the programs are not so good and the program itself
is really inconvenient. So:

The best it was for IBM comp. PC (DOS or. WIN), maybe also atari…

1)
Is there a ftp site (already) where programs and combinations and bankloaders
and soundeditors are available???

2) Is there a market for used pcm soundcards and ramcards? Or an exchange?
It should be possible to use a card with programs and to copy it
it with a sysex manager and to store it with a bankloader????

Anwar, if you want someone to help you, you need to give us more
information. For example, what kind of system do you have, (Windows
or Mac?), what have you done so far, how do you have stuff hooked
up, etc.

Do you mean to say you have not been able to extablish a connection
between any of the various pieces of equipment you have? It’s not
difficult, so I’m sure the fix is not far away.

Anyway, provide some of the information and I’ll see what I can
do for you long distance. However, this may get you started.

1. If you have no sound, you may have an interrupt problem. You
should be able to set the interrupts on the AWE32 card. Usually,
they are configured at interrupt 2 and port address 330. You
may have to reset that if something else in your system is using
the same interrupt. Without knowing what equipment you have hooked
up, it’s hard to say.

2. If the AWE32 card is working properly with games, etc., I’d assume
it is installed properly.

3. Do you have the proper MIDI drivers installed for MIDI use?
They will have come with the card, and you install them using
the Windows Drivers icon in Control Panel.

4. Your problem, in all likelihood, lies with the Cakewalk setup.
Do you get a message telling you that you have not specified
any drivers when you boot up Cakewalk?

5. Start Cakewalk, and check “Settings”, “Midi Devices”. You
should have your AWE32 driver set up as both an input port
and an output port. I’m saying this because I assume you
are using the AWE32 as a midi interface too.

6. If this is all set up, you should be able to load a midi file
into Cakewalk and play it through your AWE32. Can you do this?

7. Setting up the KORG simply involves running a MIDI cable from
the “out” port on the KORG to the “in” port on the interface,
and another cable from the “in” port on the KORG to the “out”
port on the interface. Now you’re hooked up for 2 way
communication with the KORG.

8. You’ll need to set the AWE32 and the KORG to respond to different
channels. One interface can effectively run two sound sources, if
you set the sound sources up properly. For example, one of my
KORG M1s responds to channels 1 to 8, and the other from 9 to
16. By changing the channel number in Cakewalk, I can control
which M1 responds to the signal. I actually have several MIDI
interfaces so I can use 4 MIDI ports, but I have seven different
synths hooked up to the system.

9. Now, you should be set up so the KORG is the input device to the
computer, and both the KORG and the AWE32 are output devices.
Obviously, to hear them both at the same time, you’ll need to
run the audio signals from both devices into an amplifier, and
probably into a small mixer first. Again, I don’t know what
equipment you are using. On my set up, left and right audio
connections are made to an 8 channel mixing board and from there
into a 200 watt hi fi system. I get killer sounds from this.

Give this a try, and let me know what happens.

>Hi, I´m an hobby keyboarder, using the M1 for 4 years.
>I´m still searching for cool Organ Sound.

Organs come in many shapes, but here’s one: A Hammond sound can be
approximated by mixing some sine waves tuned at particular intervals.

First you make an M1 program called Sine. Any organ program is a good
start. Set the oscillator mode to single. Set oscillator 1’s multisound to
099:DWGS Sine OSC level to 99 and Octave to 4′. Name the program “Sine” and
save it to a location you can spare.

Now go to a multi Combination. Select your Sine program for three of the
Timbres. Make sure they’re set to the same Midi channel, key window and
velocity window. In the transpose menu, set T1 to -12, T2 to +00 and T3 to
+07. Detune should be +00, panning 5:5. Set effect 1 to 25:Rotary SP and
effect 2 to a Hall or other reverb you like. Name the combi Sine Organ or
something and save it.

Now you have created a three-“drawbar” organ. In the level menu, you can
set the levels for the so-called 8′, 4′ and 2 2/3′ flutes. When you find a
mix you like, 70-17-44 for instance, save it as a starting point.

Don’t forget to plug a footswitch into the assignable pedal 1 input. Then
press Global and go to the Pedal Assign menu. Set Pedal 1 to “Effect 1
Cntl”. Now the switch controls your Leslie.

The downside: the Combi uses three voices for each note, so you lose some
polyphony. I solve part of this by dumping the 4′ Timbre (set it to Off, or
give it another Midi Channel), because I’m into this 8′ 2 2/3′ sound.

Another characteristic Hammond register is 1 3/5′. You can emulate that by
adding a Timbre with a Transpose value of +16. A fully fledged Hammond has
9 drawbars, which correspond to transpose values of -24, -12, -05, +00,
+07, +12, +16, +19 and +24. It’s fun to experiment with eight-Timbre organ
sounds, but you’re left with only two notes playing at once…

>What I also need is an authentic Rhodes Sound .
>Can you help me ???

No, sorry. The Rhodes in the EX-expansion is good, but it’s not available
anymore.

Subject: Performing live while the sequencer plays

Hi! I have an M1Rex.  I would like to create a sequence (most likely a
drum pattern) and while this sequence is playing, I want play live along
with it. The problem is that I want to use a Combi (Split) and it seems
that I can only use a Program.
While I am in the Sequencer section, I have one voice on MIDI channel 1
(a drum kit) and another voice on channel 2 (an organ).  It seems that I
can only choose Programs for these voices–not Combis.  I really want to
use a Combi so I can split the keyboard (bass in lower half, organ in upper
half) and play along with a drum beat.

Am I overlooking something? Is there another way to achieve what I want?
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds good.  I’ll have to give that a try.  I’ve been using my Yamaha

than the M1 for Hammond sounds, which a few exceptions.  Will hitting the

That’s the good part about it: the M1’s rotating speaker effect has the
characteristic speeding up/down that goes with a Leslie.

With a momentary switch (like a sustain pedal), you have to hold it down to
stay in the fast mode, that’s why I prefer an on/off switch, the kind many
guitar amps use.

It would be nice to be able to incorporate this effect in sequences.
Unfortunately, you can’t control it over Midi, except by buying a little
box called Relay from Midi Solutions. If anyone’s interested, mail me and
I’ll elaborate.

Greetings to All!

I have been reading the articles of this group and am quite impressed
with the overall direction.  It is good to know that there are
intelligent people out there.

I am currently using my M1 with Cakewalk Pro (PC platform).  I also own
am Atari which for now serves as my storage center for about 200+ patches
for the M1.  As soon as I transfer them to my PC I will make them
available to the group through our moderator (but he doesn’t know it yet!).

Right now I have a question which perhaps someone can help me with.  It
seems that as I am recording, some notes continue to play even after I
have stopped.  It is almost as if the note off message gets lost
somewhere.  There is no pattern to this and it can be any note.  It also
seems to occur more frequently when I play faster or play chords with 4
or more notes in them or even when I play a Legato or slurred passage.

Any thoughts will be very much appreciated.

Seasons greetings.

Hi Josh,

I have a 01/W, but I think what you have to do for the M1 is similar.
Go into combination mode, add the drum set e.g. as prog 1, add your
other programs, then go to the page where you can set up the MIDI
channels and set the drum set to the right channel as well as receiving
it’s data “EXT”. Then, just do whatever you want with your other
programs.

If you have set up your MIDI interface and the channels correctly,
the drum set should start playing through receiving notes from the
sequencer, while at the same time, you should be able to play
along on the keyboard.

Good luck, hope this helps, Holger.

BTW, not being able to play combis in sequencer mode is really
annoying, especially since I use the metronome a lot and can
start it only in sequencer mode. What Korg should do is allow
combinations and adjust the amount of leftover channels according
to the number of programs the combinations are using.

Subject: Question regarding M1 and T series compatibility
Date: Fri, 22 Dec 95 10:43:00 PST

Hello fellow M1 listers,

I have a question concerning compatility between the M series and the T
series.  Can the Progs & Combis of an M1 be transferred to the Progs and
Combis of a T3?  Do the two keyboards share the same RAM card size, so a
transfer would be as easy as dumping the M1 sounds to the RAM card, and then
loading the RAM card into the T3?
Does the M and T series share the same multisounds (i.e. samples)?  I had
heard from someone that the T series sounds are a superset of the M series.

I would appreciate any info regarding this.

Thanks very much!

The M1 has 100 multisounds in internal memory (00 to 99). The T series
has these identical multisounds but has an extra 90 multisounds added on
in internal memory (100 to 189).

Instead of 100 programs and 100 combies the T has 200 programs and 100
combies. The T programs are separated into 2 banks A and B.

The M1 RAM cards are compatible with the T. The M1 programs go into bank A
and the combies into the Combinations. It is a simple direct compatibility.

Hope that explains it!

The crash cymbal Multisound is looped. That is why in the Drumkit, its
decay is set to something like -38. If you set it to 00, you get the
phenomenon you describe. What puzzles me, however, is why it happens
occasionally.

Subject: Lots of stuck notes

Seasons Greetings to all!

I have a most annoying problem that I hope someone in the group will be
able to shed some light on.  It seems that many notes get stuck as I am
recording multilayered parts.  I am using Cakewalk Pro 3.01.  My Korg M1
is setup in Combi mode using 8 separate channels.  The stuck notes can
occur anywhere.  More frequently, they occur in the new part I am
recording but occasionally they happen in the part being played back, the
part or parts I am recording against.  They only seem to occur during
recording and never during a straight playback.

This is most frustrating.  The panic button of course stops them, but it
also stops the recording process.  If I switch patches in the offending
track they also stop.

Someone please help.  I know there has to be someone else who has
experienced this same phenomena.

Sincerest regards.

Chris,

surely you can do this, but it takes a lot of effort
entering and adjusting the setup manually. Here I am, with one
of the most sophisticated and best keyboards around, being able?to do almost anything with it except that I have to create my
combis manually a second time for sequencing??? They should at
least have provided a “copy” function similar to the effects
copy function that may help with transferring combis to
the sequencer (and back).

Yes, that would have been great. While they were at it, they could have

Since this list has been a little slow of late I figured it might be a good
time for a little shameless self-promotion. Most of you already know that I
have a web page devoted to M1 info but in case you are new to the list here
it is:

http://www.gate.net/~jsexton/m1.htm

I also have an ftp archive that is mostly M1 related at:

ftp://gate.net/pub/users/jsexton/

I started my page for very much the same reasons that Noise started this
mailing list. I was looking for M1 info on the net and there wasn’t very
much available so I decided to put some up myself. I try to stay abreast of
any and all M1 info on the net as much as possible but I can’t always find
everything on my own. So if you know of any M1 info (patches, software,
other sites etc…) on the internet that I don’t have a link to please
inform me of its location and I will add it accordingly. Also if you have
any M1 patches (must be public domain) you can send them to me (attach them
to an email in BinHex format please) and I will post them them to my ftp
site. Also if you notice any errors in the information I provide feel free
to correct my mistake(s). Also if you have any suggestions on ways I might
improve the M1 page, tell me so I can keep on providing content that is
useful for everyone interested in the M1. One omission that I am already
aware of is I need to put up a link to Noise’s web pages:

http://www.io.org/~noise/               (homepage)

Now that the holidays are over I can get back to updating my site.
