Hi all,

Hoping to have an easy fix for this. I was messing around with my kronos 2 88 the other day (trying to figure out how to install new sounds, patches etc.) Now, when I pick any patch in the Kronos such as any of the factory ones, the drum sounds are missing. The patterns are still there though. For example, if I use a piano patch, and I turn on drums, it’s plays the drum pattern but in piano sounds, instead of actual drum sounds. That goes for the same for each respective sound.

Just wondering how to get it back to normal. Thanks!

Kronos 2 Factory programs are using prog U-AA106 to U-BB081 for their drum track.
For example prog Int-A000 Berlin Grand points to U-AA118 Rock Kit for its drum track.

So, for the prog you load, you have to check what Drum prog you Prog is pointing to and check if the prog contains a drum kit.

What you can do is reloading User AA and BB factory sounds.

Another issue is to be considered : if you load former progs coming from first Kronos generation sounds didn't point to the same location. For example, if you load Qui Robinez, you'll have to convert the Drum Trrack pointers.

Few times ago I wrote a conversion chart from Kronos 1 to Kronos 2 :

this sounds picky, but when fixing Korg Kronos problems, its better to talk "Korg".

Korg does not actually have 'patches '. It has Programs and Combis.

So lets assume we are talking Programs.

I think your culprit is Midi.

Go to GLOBAL/MIDI and tell is what you show for Basic Midi Setup and Drum Track Midi Setup.

I noticed that when folks connect PC's other devices to Kronos that can accidentally mess around with standard factory settings in Kronos

Bottom line, for Programs, Drum Kits and Patterns prefer Midi Channel 10

You might be stuck on a Global Channel but that's a wild guess.

Lets work on GLOBAL Midi first

You may have been messing with changing the Bank Types. If you changed an HD-1 bank to an EXB bank, or vice versa, it will wipe out the contents and initialize it.
