11 Setting up the M50 Plug-In Editor If you want to use the M50 Editor with the M50 connected to your computer via USB, you must make sure that you have finished installing and setting-up the KORG USB-MIDI Driver before you start up the M50 Editor. This section explains how to set up the M50 Plug-In Editor in your host application and create settings so that it will operate correctly. About the M50 Plug-In Editor Parameter data is sent and received between the M50 Plug-In Editor and the M50. Unlike typical plug-in instruments, the M50 Plug-In Editor does not produce an audio signal. Your M50 will output audio signals when the M50 Plug-In Editor sends it MIDI messages. If you want to send the M50 s audio signal to an audio track of your host application and use it in conjunction with a plug-in effect etc., refer to Using your host application to control the M50 s audio signal ( p.9) Note: Because the M50 Plug-In Editor does not handle audio signals, you can t insert a plug-in effect into the channel of the track in which the M50 Plug-In Editor is inserted, or send its audio signal via a send or bus. 8
12 Using an external mixer to control the M50 s audio signal If you want to mix the M50 s audio signals with the audio signals sent from your host application via your audio interface, or with audio signals from another sound module, make connections as shown below. Using your host application to control the M50 s audio signal If you want to apply a plug-in effect to the M50 s audio signal, or to control the M50 s audio signal in your host application along with other audio tracks, connect the M50 to your audio interface and route the audio signal into your host application. Refer to the example explanations for various popular host applications on the following pages. Note: For details on creating audio tracks, MIDI tracks, and plug-in instrument tracks, and on how to perform operations and make settings in your host application, refer to the host application s owner s manual. 9

In this case, execute a UTILITY menu command (such as Receive Current Prog) in the Editor to receive a data dump of the current data. 3
27 Functions provided by the M50 1 Tone Adjust This function provides an easy way to edit the sound of programs, the programs used within a combination, or the programs used by song tracks in a sequence. In the M50 Editor you can perform the same Tone Adjust operations as you can from the M50 itself. Arpeggiator The arpeggiator is a function that automatically produces arpeggios (broken chords). The M50 Editor lets you edit the parameters of the M50 s (maximum of) two arpeggiators in each mode (PROG, COMBI, SEQ), edit arpeggio patterns in GLOBAL mode, and also to view the settings of the four knobs in real time. The arpeggio pattern edit screen lets you edit the arpeggio pattern while you listen to the phrase. 3 Drum Track The Drum Track is a pattern sequencer dedicated to playing drum patterns. You can use it in any mode: Program, Combination, or Sequencer. In the M50 Editor you can turn the drum performance on/off, select drum patterns, select drum programs, and edit the settings of the assigned timbre all in realtime. 4
28 Functions specific to the editor These are functions that are not found on the M50, and are available only from the editor (M50 Editor, M50 Plug-In Editor). Utility commands Load Loads editor data that was previously saved on the computer. Save Saves data from the editor to your computer as a file. Note: These functions load or save the data as dedicated files for the editor application. Receive All Receives all data from the M50 data into the editor. Note: The sequencer performance data of Sequencer mode is excepted. Transmit All Transmits all data in the editor to the M50 and writes it into internal memory. Receive All Combi/Current Combi Bank Receive All Prog/Current Prog Bank Receive SEQ Receive Global Data/Drum Kit/Arpeggio Pattern Receive the corresponding data from the M50 into the editor. Transmit All Combi/Current Combi Bank Transmit All Prog/Current Prog Bank Transmit SEQ Transmit Global Data/Drum Kit/Arpeggio Pattern Transmit the corresponding data from the editor to the M50 and writes it. Receive Current Combi/Current Prog/1 SEQ/Current Arpeggio Pattern Receive the respective data from the M50 into the editor. Transmit Current Combi/Current Prog/1 SEQ/Current Arpeggio Pattern Transmit the respective data from the editor to the M50. Note: These Receive and Transmit commands use KORG SysEx MIDI Dump to send or receive data, or to synchronize the data between the M50 and the software. Don t touch the keyboard or the mouse of your computer while data is being sent or received. Also, don t touch the panel switches or the keyboard of the M50. Import Loads PCG data from the M50 into the editor. PCG data from the M3 or data that was created in M3 Editor can also be converted and loaded into the editor. (Not all data is necessarily compatible.) 5
29 Export Data created in the M50 Editor can be saved as PCG data for the M50. Save as Default Writes (saves) the global mode Software Setup settings of the editor as the default settings that will be used when you start up the editor. Note: These utilities can be selected only in the editor s global mode Software Setup page. Select Auto Load File In the Software Setup tab, use Load data file automatically to select the desired file. Note: Refer to Load data file automatically. All Sound Off Depending on the host application, "hung" notes may occur while operating the host's functions. If this symptom occurs, please execute the "All Sound Off" command. 6
30 Software Setup (Initial settings for M50 Editor) Global mode Software Setup lets you specify the default settings that the M50 Editor will use when it starts up. This setting is saved when you execute the UTILITY command Save as Default, and will be remembered the next time you start up. Total Recall & Data Sync Settings Here you can specify the editor data that will be saved and loaded as part of the song data by your DAW software. This setting lets you save only the data you need. When the M50 Editor starts up, the types of data that you ve checked here will also be loaded automatically from the M50 that s connected to your computer. (In other words, this data will be synchronized.) Since a data dump requires a certain amount of time, you may wish to shorten the startup time by using the Load Data File Automatically function instead of this function, or by using the UTILITY command Load to load a previously-saved data file into the M50 Editor. Load data file automatically When the M50 Editor starts up, the data file you specify here will automatically be loaded into the editor. After this process is completed, the data you checked in Total Recall & Data Sync Setting will be loaded via data dump. Auto Local Control This setting automatically sets the M50 s Local Control setting to the appropriate state when you start up the editor. We recommend that you normally leave this parameter on. The M50 s Local Control setting will be reset to its original state when you close the editor. MIDI Settings Here you can adjust settings for MIDI connections between the M50 Editor and the M50. MIDI IN Port / MIDI OUT Port This selects the connection port for the M50 and M50 Editor. The name of the currently connected 7
31 MIDI port is shown. You won t need to change this setting if the M50 and the M50 Editor are connected correctly, since the M50 Editor will search for the M50 when it starts up, and will specify the MIDI port automatically. Send M50 s MIDI Out data to the host application (VST Plug-In Only) If you turn this option on, the MIDI OUT data of the M50 itself will be sent to the host application as the output of the plug-in instrument. Short messages are the only type of MIDI messages that can be output. If you re using a host application that is able to receive the MIDI data sent by a plug-in instrument, the MIDI messages generated by the M50 s arpeggiator function can be sent to the MIDI track of a different software synthesizer. 8
32 Cautions USB connection If you lose data synchronization with the M50 when starting up the editor, please check the following points. If you re using USB-MIDI, you must use the KORG USB-MIDI Driver. The default driver provided by the operating system may have an extremely slow data transfer rate, or may not communicate correctly. If you re using a USB hub, try connecting the M50 directly to a USB port on the computer itself to see whether it will work. You can also try removing all other connected USB devices except for the M50 itself. When you lose data synchronization, please perform the Receive All or Transmit All function in the Editor s UTILITY menu in order to synchronize the data between the editor and the hardware. About the USB port to which you connect the M50 (Windows only) The M50 s USB port is USB 1.1, but if the USB port of your computer itself supports USB.0, you may be able to increase the USB data transmission rate depending on how you make connections. In some cases, connecting the M50 directly to a USB port of the computer itself may slow down the data transfer speed. If so, connect the M50 via a USB.0 hub rather than directly to the computer. This may increase the USB data transfer speed. 9
