Brien, could you kindly help me resucitate Korg M1?
The battery has died, and I've replaced it.

Trying to load up the original sounds I found on the net:
m1factc.sys
m1factg.sys
m1factp.sys
m1facts.sys

I am sending the SysEx files using Midi-OX. I see the progress bar, but KorgM1 still has only the basic piano sound.
I've followed this advice to prepare M1:

08. Plug in and power on the M1. “Init Program” appears in the M1’s display.
09. Set MIDI to “Enable”: GLOBAL, 5, +, UP, D, UP, F, UP, H, UP.
10. Set memory protects to “Off”: GLOBAL, 6, DOWN, +, B, DOWN, +, B, DOWN.
11. Sysex transfer original factory sounds from the “Factory” backup file.

Thank you kindly for your time.
Alex

MIDIoX does not come configured so you do have to set up your MIDI in/out...did that already I am sure:)

In MIDIoX, You should be able to (IF ALL IS SET AS BELOW)
Select ACTIONS>SEND>SysExe File.





To reload the M1
================
1. Connect the MIDI OUT socket from your PC to the MIDI IN socket on the M1.

2. Turn on the M1 and set the basic MIDI CHANNEL TO 1(one)
(Global Midi Channel) and ensure that SYS-EX RECEIVE is enabled.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
(if you fail to do this, the reload procedure will not work!


3> SEND SysExe File using MIDIoX



4. When all data has been transmitted turn off the M1.

Then switch it back on again and check that the first program sound is I00: Universe.

5. If you followed the above correctly:
You should find that all factory sounds and demos have now been restored.


If NOT...lemme know where it failed and WHAT the error, if any, reads.

Yes. The computer you use to upload the sysex file doesn't matter, you could even use an old Atari ST if you could get the sysex files onto it.

Well, I'm a bit new to this Midi and sysex and programs thing... but, I have a Korg M1 as well, I replaced the battery but I can't seem to reload the programs on to it. I don't even have midi cables....

I have a mac osx. I really don't know how to do this all. all I know from seeing it in forums is that you need to connect a midi cable from the keyboard to the computer... But how? I don't have midi cables, (I can buy some), but how do I connect them to the computer, What type of interface or cable do I need. Also what type of program can I use? I also have a Windows Xp that I rarely use. can anyone help me?
-Javier! thanks! Smile

Javier - I am also a Mac OsX user and sadly had my M1 battery die last month. I got a new battery in no problem as per internet sites. But despite then following instructions on various online sites, and instructions from Korg UK themselves, I was unable to restore the sounds via MIDI and lost a whole frustrating day. BUT by chance I came upon a message that mentioned you needed a high quality USB-MIDI cable to get it to work, so I took a chance and bought a 'Cakewalk UM-1G' interface (£40 from GAK), whereas previously I had been using an internet cheapy which seemed to work fine. And amazingly, great news the restore worked first time with the new cable!! So for Mac OsX users out there the key stages were:

1) Download the sys files from Korg UK homesite, and set Korg M1 ro be able to accept new files (e.g. see online sites and above to allow internal memory overwrites and Korg is set to receive exclusive message etc.).
2) Download the free programme 'SysEx librarian' from internet and load the Korg M1 files onto this.
3) Buy a Cakewalk UM-1G USB to MIDI interface cable and install precisely as per instruction book, including key part on Page 21 to connect the USB arrows between input and output ports on the Audio MIDI setup utility. BEWARE that the whole process might fail if using a cheap MIDI-USB cable as I had been previously!!
4) Set the cable for the default 'advanced' driver mode, midi thru switched off.
5) Connect the Korg M1 and Mac via the cable. Then use SysEx librarian to send the files over to the M1. I used the default transmit speed and delay between message set to 500 msecs (some online sites using MidOx mention having to play with this setting, but apparently ok with SysEX on Mac).
6) After transmit complete, switch of the M1 and leave for 10 secs. Then turn on again and in my case BINGO all sounds restored.

Good luck! Paul.

PS. If all else fails, you can buy a ROM card with all the original sounds from http://www.voicecrystal.com/korg.htm in the USA, who were very helpful when I e-mailed them. Price for card was around USD $50 + P&P, and simply goes in the ROM card slot to access all original sounds.

I'm in the same situation as the others: trying to revive a dead M1 for selling.

I've replaced the battery, hooked up midi xfer cables, set the M1's global settings as directed in this thread, grabbed a copy of midi-ox, downloaded the factory settings (m1patch.zip), and even successfully transferred the sysex.

The trouble is (and the thing absolutely NO ONE EVER mentions is) that there are seven .syx files inside that m1patch zip file.

lune.syx
origcomb.syx
origglob.syx
origprog.syx
origseqs.syx
synthprg.syx
technom1.syx

Now, I like to think I'm a bright boy so I chose origprog.syx first. It transfered successfully. I switch off the M1.

When I switch it back on, it looks the same: Init Prog. There is no Universe at #00. So I try the other syx files. After transferring them all, I get something called " Z Z 2 " at #00.

So clearly, that didn't work.

I'm about the open the case for the second time to remove the new battery (thus simulating a dead M1) to try this again. By the way, is there an easier way to clear the memory? Like, WITHOUT having to open the case?

I'd like to know the following things, if possible, before I start again...

1) which .syx files should I concern myself with?
2) in what order should I transfer them?
3) must I shut down the M1 after each individual syx transfer or can I transfer all syx files (or the relevant files), then powering down the M1 only once?

I think it's great that people are able to get it to work without knowing the level of detail I'm asking for. What can I say? I'm envious of them.

I appreciate the help!!

I have exactly the same questions + "Where can we find working original factory syx ??"

Could somebody come back to this old thread please ? Wink

Thanks so much !
