PCG Tools 2.0.0 is released. You can download the application for free as usual at http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl.

What is new?

Virtual banks for the Korg Kronos and the MS2000 (see the Virtual Bank files to be downloaded on the website). With these files, you can store 50 program and 50 combi banks, so you can keep all your patches together in one location. Of course you cannot use them directly on your synthesizer, however you can copy from/to that file like a big storage box. And if you need more than one file, just fill another Virtual Banks file.

PCG Tools does not support only PCG files anymore. For the Korg MS2000, microSTATION, microKORG, microKORG XL and microKORG XL Plus a variety of files can be loaded and managed.

Also Greek language has been added thanks to Dadanos.

Besides that the Set List Generator has been rearranged so it looks better (I hope).

Last but not least a lot of small improvements and bug fixes.

Kind regards,

Michel, developer of PCG Tools

I am trying to have organimation, 32 classic keys and Korgmann's combis all at the same time, is this possible? I downloaded pig tools, but don't know how to access the pct's on the m50, is it throughout the USB? When I plug it in it doesn't seem to recognize the m50 as a drive.

Yes you can do this ... however it is PCG Tools and PCG files.

However, I think it is best to read the copy/paste part of the manual before you try and make backup files. You can use the SD card for loading/saving. An USB connection is not needed.

Yes PCG, sorry autocorrect. I tried to use the manual, but I missed the part about using the SD card. I will try to find that and give it a go.
Thanks!

No problem, you can search in the manual too (so if you search for M50 you will find it). I don't know by head exactly (probably in the Workflow chapter).

PCG Tools 2.7.0 is released today and can be downloaded from the website (http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl ).

One of the new features is a new choice in PCG windows where you can select 'All Patches'. This shows all patches in a big list and most commands can be performed on different patch types simultaneously.

Also the normal program/combi/set list banks has a new feature: patches are selected from ALL selected banks. So you can use move up/down over bank boundaries, same as sorting, compacting, clearing, copy/paste etc.

Another new feature is made by mTrilby: PCG Tools will automatically backup every x minutes changed PCG files, which can be used to restore to older versions. mTrilby is the second developer (the other developer is KorganizR) who made a new feature to PCG Tools. If anyone like to make or improve a feature, please let me know (programming skills are required though).

Also the move up/down GUI bug has been resolved and links have been updated (like we have another Portuguese/Brazilian translator: Thiago Costa.

The complete change list:

Code:
Feature : New mode "All Patches" in PCG window showing all type of patches simultaneously.
Feature : Auto-backup of changed PCG files every x minutes (thanks to mTrilby).
Improv  : Patches from all selected banks are shown simultaneously in PCG window.
Improv  : Moving up/down patches (and most other commands) works over bank boundaries.
Improv  : Most actions can be performed on selected patches from multiple banks.
Bug Fix : Prevented crash when assigning a PCG file as master file.
Bug Fix : Fixed GUI behavior of move up/down buttons.
Bug Fix : Fixed header of File Content List, created by the List Generator.
Links   : Added several people, like translator for Portuguese(Brasil): Thiago Costa.
Links   : Fixed website link to Qui Robinez (creator of sound libraries/tutorials).
