Hi Everyone, I just purchased a Kronos X 73. And there are 6 pianos missing. Empty sounds! Japanese Pianos, programs 6 thru 11. The 11th one has the string sound but no Japanese piano. Should I try a factory reset???? Very Happy

Not sure why the sounds should be missing, but yes - a factory reset should solve the problem. I would back up your existing PCG to the internal drive before doing it, even though I know you probably won't have altered any of the sounds yet.

Hi there,

You can revert your Kronos to the factory state, but if the previous owner created some great programs, you might lose his custom stuff. There is also another way when some programs refuse to play normally.

If you see a Missing samples message at the top of the screen when you select those programs, simply select the Load required samples option in the top right drop-down menu. Choose the required samples only option. You should then hear the piano sounds that were missing.

If you like those programs and want them available each time you start the Kronos, go in Global mode and select the KSC Auto-Load tab. Once there, check in the list if you see EXs7 or something like Japanese Piano KSC file (as maybe it was modified/renamed by the previous owner). If so, make sure the little select square on the line is red.

If not, click on the Add button, then navigate on the Kronos disk to the FACTORY directory and then to the PRELOAD_Individual_KSC one. You can then select the EXs7 KSC file (Japanese piano) there to add it in the list. Once back in the auto-load tab, make sure it is selected with a little red square. All done.

Note that depending what is selected there, you might be already loading the memory to its maximum. In that case, you will have to unselect some KSC file(s) you don't use/like so that everything can be loaded in memory. To make sure everything fits in memory, click on the Selected Auto-Load option at the top, it will tell you if you are OK (no red indication).

i know this doesnt answer your question, but honestly, the japanese piano SUCKS on the kronos. its tinny , thin, and uneven sample wise. just my 2 cents
