Hi there,

I'm in a real bind with my FM as I want to save multiple instances of the Stringsens patch with slight variations for parts of songs and different songs but my unit wont let me. The manual says when I hit SAVE when not in edit mode it'll show which patch I can to write over (using the prog knob to select and SAVE again to finally write. But every time I hit SAVE as per the manuals instructions it merely saves over the patch I'm on.

Is this common? Any advice here?

Sorry if this is a double post; I tried to locate this issue in other posts but the terms were too vague.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Here is how it goes at my side: not in edit mode.
Push Save - name of the program start to blink
Turn the program knob - select the program you want to overwrite - while it keeps blinking.
Push Save again

So, it works fine. Best is to first rename your edited patch and then save it.

Which version of the Firmware do you have? Officially you can upgrade to 1.03. (Refer to the Korg site). Apparently newer units get shipped with 1.04.
Maybe it is worth trying to upgrade or try a factory reset.

Bye.
