MS2000BR. Great tool. I was able to use it to generate a .csv of some .syx files. I've collected quite a few with many duplicate patches within. Was able to import them into a database, run a query to spit out unique patches not present in the other file(s), then switched back to PCG Tools to make my "lost patches" collection.

Thanks!


MS2000BR is a model? I really should make a complete list of all models of MS2000.

Also note you can use the 'virtual' file from my website to store a lot of banks, then use the Duplicate List function to let PCG Tools find (more or less) equal patches.

Also when you set the copy/paste settings so that duplicate copies are not pasted, you can copy all patches you want in the virtual file and duplicates will not be copied.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korg_MS2000

MS2000 first gen
MS2000B black second gen

MS2000R rack first gen
MS2000BR black rack second gen

The differences I'm aware of are color and stock patches. Not sure about firmware.

Thanks for the interface tips.

Thanks for the link ... and yes, I already checked it ... also added them to the supported models.

Btw ... maybe there is a major bug in the current PCG Tools release regarding copy & paste for MS2000 and microKorg programs ... going to check it this evening probably if I can find some time.

So always make backups before.

New PCG Tools release version 2.0.2 (only fixes for Kronos, MS2000 and microKORG owners):

Thanks to a solution for the problem below I found out there MIGHT be problems when copy/pasting programs from the Korg MS2000 and microKORG.

Also a problem for the Kronos is solved that the set list generator only shows one of the new expanded program banks.

So all Kronos and especially MS2000/microKORG owners: please download version 2.0.2 of PCG Tools at http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl
For all other users there are no changes (and they do not have to upgrade).

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The complete list:

2.0.2 24-Mar-2014
Improv: Moved Virtual Banks after user banks in list generator screen and lists.
Bug Fix: Preventing programs getting corrupted after copying (MS2000/microKorg only).
Bug Fix: All extended user banks now selectable in list generator (Kronos only).

Since this release is important for MS2000/microKORG owners:

In version 2.0.2 there were some installation problems, therefor today I revert the download back to 2.0.1. However, now 2.0.3 is available for upload, with the bug fixes of 2.0.2 and the installation problem fixed (hopefully for everyone). See http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl

Now none of my old .syx files will open without crashing the app immediately. App event log or the resultant .wer file doesn't really have anything useful in it.

It's easy to recreate the issue by either using a previous sysex dump from an actual machine or downloading one of the "free synth sounds" files from the soundware section on the KORG site

Hello Steinberger,

Thank you for the notification ... indeed when developing the M1 I accidentally ruined a bit of the microKorg/MS2000 code.

I just have released version 2.0.4 which should work.

I don't know if I took those sounds, but I tested about 500 files (only if reading and some basic operations does not crash it) and those are ok.

Kind regards,

I just checked and the default installer loads both files from Korg correctly (and all other supported files for MS2000/microKorg too).
