Currently PCG Tools does not support the Korg Kross, but I'm working on it.

What can it do with these files:
- show a list per program, where it is used (in which combis/set list slots)
- show a list per combi, which programs are used
- sorting programs alphabetically
- sorting combis alphabetically
- sorting set lists alphabetically

For more information see the main thread:
http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=63765

The application is FREE. Anybody interested, send a PM with your email address so I can send it.

Also if you have tips, improvements, remarks etc let me know.

If there is someone with a Korg Kross who wants to help me with doing a few simple tests, I gladly would like to hear it.

Also someone (or the same) who can provide (more) PCG files to test.

Thanks in advance.

It has been quite a long time ago an update of PCG Tools has been released and I want to clearify about this. Due to positive personal changes in my life I will have very less time for continuing the development of PCG Tools.

This does not mean there will not be a new release; however I cannot tell about a time frame. I have a few items that I want to release (such as a new language because the translator did not do his work for nothing), possibly partial support of the new Korg Kross and some bug fixes I already have implemented in my development version.

Also, I will keep answering questions and react to every post/email regarding PCG Tools (ok ... questions about passwords can take a bit longer).

Also, I want to stay active here and within KorgForums.

Please keep discussing PCG Tools here and/or on KorgForums. Also please keep subscribed to the newsletter because when there will be a new release, that will be the way to launch it.

So do not see this email as a goodbye, except a more quiet period. I think that PCG Tools can already do a lot to be useful for years.

If somebody is interested in taking over / continuing implementing please let me know.

Kind regards and thanks for all support so far,

Michel

It has been very long time ago I spent time to PCG Tools, but today I had 1,5 hour left and the energy to take a look at PCG Tools again.

I should have done it earlier, because I was almost finished with support for the Korg Kross. Today I think I made some important steps and I think it is ready for being beta-tested by volunteers.

So if you are a Korg Kross owner and are interested in testing PCG Tools please let me know.

Actually, it's ready for release, but I'm afraid I don't have time until early January ... sorry for the delay.

PCG Tools 1.8.0

Finally there is a new version of PCG Tools, almost a year after the previous version.

The main addition is the support for the Korg Kross. PCG Tools from now on can read all Kross PCG files and perform the relevant functions for those file.

Also thanks to Honza, the Czech language is added.

Furthermore, several bug fixes are included and a lot of improvements, which can be read below.

Also the website has been improved (see the link in my signature), and from now on Yahoo Group PCG Tools http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/pcgtools/info is used for notifications instead of MailChimp newsletter. In the near future I will send invitations to everybody and when all invitations have been sent I will remove the list completely. For now, I removed 500 people (sorry, no other solution possible), and will send notifications to the remaining while sending update notifications also to here, Facebook, Google Plus etc.

                        Improv:  Added ToString() implementations for support for visually impaired application(s).
                        Improv:  Changed all 2013 copyright notifications to 2014.
                        Improv:  Added Honza (Czech translation) to thanks list.
                        Improv:  Paul Hirschvogel to thanks list (for testing Kross).
                        Bug Fix: In disk navigation mode in Kronos, set list and slot names are shown correctly.
                        Bug Fix: In Timbres window, the program ID now fit new Kronos program banks.
                        Bug Fix: Cleaning a Trinity combi does not make PCG Tools crash.
                        Bug Fix: Kronos and M3 SNG files could not be loaded.
                        Bug Fix: Prevented problem when double clicking files containing spaces in folder/file.
                        Bug Fix: Prevented crash for Korg Triton Rack PCG files with program/combi Ext H bank.
                        Bug Fix: Increased width of combi programs in PCG window to accomadate full combi name.
                        Language:Czech language added, thanks to Honza.
                        Language:Added some strings which were not translated in 1.7.1.
                        ExtLinks:Added logo/link to KromeHeaven.

I dont' have a Mac so I cannot make that version. But you can use a Windows emulator and PCG Tools on a Mac.

Several mac programmers have contacted me, but noone ever tried further to convert my app.

There is some way to use favorites in PCG Tools:
- Change the name of your favorite patches, e.g. by adding # or *
- With the set list generator you can very easily find your favorites (search for patches with *)
- Also, you can with PCG Tools easily copy your favorite programs/combis to a special (favorite) bank.

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

In PCG Tools there might be a problem that a modified PCG file with PCG Tools gives a File Unavailable error ... in case you have this problem, please contact me.

I am wondering how many of you use the .KRSall, .KRSpr or .KRScmb files? Would it be useful in PCG Tools to be able to read these file formats and being able to copy/paste between PCG files and .KRS files?
