Is there a set of steps for setting up a brand new combi from blank initial settings, that shows how to add drum arp to any track.

The problem I have is that it seems you need:

- to set the combi settings 3.1 midi tab, set it to INT and set a midi channel. Most of the presets seem to use midi channel 2 and 3 which is not documented in the manual. No matter what I use, altering these values has no proper effect, or rather, it may seem to work while editing the combi but if you save the combi, the settings do not work, the drum sound won't trigger.

- you also need to set up combi edit arp page 6.1, setup and arp a and arp b, and zone.

Neither of the above is sufficient on a new patch. THere's more undocumented magic, or there's firmware bugs in my Korg TR combi editing.

What I believe is:

1. You can only get a drum and bass combi by copying an existing DnB combi and then altering it.

2. There are bugs and weird midi routing issues when uyou start altering midi channels and arp A/B settings in a live program ,that cause the live arp setting to not match the values on screen, and not play properly.

3. There are bugs that cause the arp settings not to be loaded when loading the combi.

4. Only factory presets, saved to a new slot works to get around these glitches.

Weird one.

So I asked this question about 4 months ago and it doesn't look like anybody reads these who uses the combis and who knows how to set up arpeggiators.

Help!

This is making this keyboard insane for me. The best way to set up a combi is to copy one that does what you want (ie has a drum arp working).

Once a drum arp is triggered by the keyboard (pressing keys plays drum sounds) you are screwed, korg's firmware makes it impossible to create a combi that will:

1. play drum channels from the arpeggiator but NOT the keyboard.

2. route the arp signal into the combi channel.

This is deeply annoying.
