Korg-i File Editor helps a KORG™ i-Series Interactive
Music Workstation User organize his/her Arrangements, Styles, KBD Sets,
Backing Sequences etc. files.
3 KORG i-Series families are currently supported, each
one by a specific Korg-i File Editor version:

and i3 models (including 32 Styles extensions)

iS50, iS35, i40M models.

exist that convert file formats between various standards, e.g. "KORG<"
) to "KORG9" converter.
KORG9 files are readable by most KORG-i-Series instruments.
- Delete, Copy/Paste or Move Arrangements, Styles,
Programs, KBD Sets, Backing Sequences and Songs inside or between any number
of standard KORG i-Series files.
- Check/fix consistency of Calls between Items (including Backing
Sequences, Songs and KBD Sets) inside the currently edited file Set.
- Display, print or save to text file a Report
that lists all Items of a Set and their mutual links.
- Edit Items Names and some other parameters, including Global and
Arrangement Global parameters.
- (i30 and i40 only) Upload edited files to the instrument
via the standard MIDI OUT link or PC TO HOST interface, or create compatible
Korg-i File Editor can only edit files
stored in the PC (hard or floppy disks, CDROM etc.): it has neither
access to the controls nor to the memory of the instrument itself.
Korg-i File Editor
a full Librarian/Editor:
e.g. it is not intended to edit Program parameters nor Style patterns (some
for those tasks).
It works exclusively for the above-mentioned KORG i-Series
- The MIDI functions (i.e. sending edited data to the KORG-i or SysEx files)
are not available for the i3 family. However, programs are available
that can send i3-family files to a KORG i2 or i3 thru MIDI, e.g. 'sendi3w.exe'
which is included in Günter Nagler's exchi3.zip
should use Korg-i File Editor?
If you never tried to delete, move or replace User Arrangements,
Styles or Programs on a KORG i-Series Interactive Music Workstation,
don't waste your time reading this page! But if you intend to make the most
of the tremendous power of this instrument, whatever the model, you certainly
need Korg-i File Editor.
There are at least 3 reasons for a serious musician to use Korg-i File
Bank editing is much easier when one can see the contents
of a whole bank on a screen, and move an item from any location to another
instantaneously with a simple drag and drop mouse operation.
Any number of Korg-i file Sets can be opened simultaneously
by Korg-i File Editor, so that creating a new Set from elements
picked up from existing Sets becomes a pleasure instead of a headache.
Before deleting a Program, Korg-i File Editor checks that
it is not used by some useful Arrangement(s) or Style(s). Similarly, after
moving a Program to another location, Korg-i File Editor
automatically modifies all the Arrangements and Styles that use this program.
Setting the keyboard Split Point of all 128 User
Arrangements (or all 64 KBD Sets) to F#3 with a single command.
Replacing all calls (from Arrangements, KBD Sets, Styles etc.) to Program
A15 with calls to F18.
Maintaining "synchronization" between moved Items. If, for example, you try
moving Jazz Guitar 4 Program from F57 to F45 in I30PLOAD Set, Korg-i
- shows the list of Items that call F57 and should be redirected
- performs all these redirections automatically,
- shows the list of Items that call F45 and should probably
be redirected to other existing programs.
In addition, you can print a Report of the present state of the whole Set
(including Names of all Items and mutual links between them), or a more detailed
report of the KBD subset, or the Arrangement subset etc. None of these functions
are available on the Korg-i instruments.
Please look at an example of i30
file Editor screen.
