PostPosted: Tue Jul 28, 2015 12:53 am    Post subject: Installing KAPro libraries Reply with quote

I am having the darndest time uploading the unzipped KAPro libraries to my Korg Kronos 2. It seems like some of the patches work (just organs) and others do not (everything else including strings, Synths, pads, and EP's.)

I purchased the KAPro EXs 19 Private Collection, obtained a key (authorization number/code) and unzipped the file on my computer and then loaded the unzipped files to a thumbdrive. After plugging that into my Kronos, I went to disk mode, and navigated to a folder called KAPRo Private Collection EXs19 on the thumbdrive and could not get any of the sounds to load. I am probably missing a very simple step, but I have searched high and low online and found no instructions on how to load his libraries. I also do not know where I would put in that authorization key code I have.

Any help would extremely appreciated. Thank you!

Kevin

Here are the full instructions for loading EXs19.

Installing EXs
Unzip the downloaded EXs.zip file.
Unzipping the archive will result in a folder containing several different files.
Copy the unzipped EXs folder to a USB storage device, such as flash memory or a USB hard drive.
Safely disconnect the USB storage device from your computer.
Connect the USB storage device to one of the KRONOS’s two USB A ports.
Press the DISK button to enter Disk mode.
Touch the "Utility" tab.
Using the "Drive Select" menu at the bottom of the page, select the USB storage device.
Touch the folder containing the EXs data from step 2, then touch "Open."
Touch the EXs.exsins file to select it.
Select "Install EXs" from the drop-down menu, or simply touch "Install".
The system will check to confirm that the installation files are valid, and that there is sufficient space on the SSD to install the EXs. Next, an “Install EXs ”dialog box will appear:
Touch "Install" to continue with the installation.
The confirmation message “Are you sure?” will appear. If you decide to cancel the installation, touch "Cancel."
Touch "OK" to continue with the installation.
The installation will then begin. This may take a while; a progress bar shows the installation as it proceeds.

Next, the newly installed files will be verified. After the verification has completed successfully, the progress bar will disappear, and the installation is complete. The EXs sample data itself is installed on an invisible, protected part of the disk. To use the EXs, you’ll load its associated files, which will be installed into a new folder named “EXs (title) ” within the KApro folder.
Turn the power switch off, wait 10 seconds, and then turn it on again.



Loading the new samples and sounds
You can load the samples and sounds(Programs, Combis, Drum Kits, Wave Sequences, and Songs) into the default locations all at once.

To do so:
While still in Disk mode, touch the "Load" tab.
Set "Drive Select" to HDD: INTERNAL HD.
Select the KApro folder, and touch "Open."
Select the EXs (title) folder, and touch "Open."
Select the file "EXs.PCG."
Touch "Load."
A dialog box appears.
Enable the check-box labeled "Load EXs.KSC. too."
This will load the samples along with the sounds.
Set "Select .KSC Allocation" to "Append," and set "Load Method" to "KSC Setting."
Leave the ".PCG Contents" parameter set to "All."
Below the other parameters, you’ll notice a status line showing the Memory Required and Available. If the Available value is larger than Memory Required, the text will be in black, and you can proceed. If the Available value is smaller than Memory Required, it will be shown in red characters. (*1)
Touch "OK" to load the data.

Busch.

After it has been successfully installed, go to GLOBAL==>OPTIONS INFO. Find the library in the list and select it. Press AUTHORIZE SELECTED and enter the code.

did you go to the 2nd part of Bush's post ?

Loading the new samples and sounds
You can load the samples and sounds(Programs, Combis, Drum Kits, Wave Sequences, and Songs) into the default locations all at once.

To do so:
While still in Disk mode, touch the "Load" tab.
Set "Drive Select" to HDD: INTERNAL HD.
Select the KApro folder, and touch "Open."
Select the EXs (title) folder, and touch "Open."
Select the file "EXs.PCG."
Touch "Load."
A dialog box appears.
Enable the check-box labeled "Load EXs.KSC. too."
This will load the samples along with the sounds.
Set "Select .KSC Allocation" to "Append," and set "Load Method" to "KSC Setting."
Leave the ".PCG Contents" parameter set to "All."
Below the other parameters, you’ll notice a status line showing the Memory Required and Available. If the Available value is larger than Memory Required, the text will be in black, and you can proceed. If the Available value is smaller than Memory Required, it will be shown in red characters. (*1)
Touch "OK" to load the data.

I don't have this sample Lib

They should be ' new programs'

Did you identify a few of the ' new programs ' from the PDF that came with the sample lib and search your Kronos to see if they were there ?

Typically they are loaded in a user Program bank such as G

Make sure Auto Load is checked in disk mode.

In disk mode you can open the kapro folder and then open the programs folder. Select an individual program and press load. Look at the dialogue box that pops up to see where the default location is. If that program that you are trying to load isn't there then you probably need to load the entire pcg file.......Do a "saveall" first.

As Benny Ray said. Go to "global" mode then press "ksc autoload". Then press "add ksc". Find ksc file related to kapro and highlight it. Then press "add". ..Now press "do autoload now".......if you can't find the ksc kapro file then you might not have pasted the file onto ssd from usb.
