Description: Huge collection of good synthesizer sounds
Contains the following data:
*.mid Sound banks as Standard MIDI Files (use them with any sequenzer)
*.syx Sound banks as Sysex dumps
*.sqd Soundquest data, containing all sound banks
*.sql Soundquest library, containing sounds with comments
brs_ens (MIDI, Sysex) – brass, flutes, strings + choirs, ethno sounds
guit_ld (MIDI, Sysex) – guitars, synthesizers (lead), solo strings
pad_FX (MIDI, Sysex) – pads and effect pads witch different noises
p_org (MIDI, Sysex) – pianos, E-pianos, organs, church organs
perc_bas (MIDI, Sysex) – percussion and chromatic percussion, drums, sound effects, basses
||Several Cubase Mixer maps to control 05R/W sound parameters
Some browsers try to play the MIDI files instead of loading them. Use right click and then "save as …".
The sound sets and global data are included in different data formats
to make loading as easy as possible for you.
You just have to play the MIDI files with a midi player. When using a
music software like Steinberg Cubase you must ensure that any sysex
filters are absent.
Sysex files are another common file format.
8-part multi-timbral via MIDI interface
has a General MIDI modus and a General MIDI sound set
(128 ROM programs + 8 drum programs; 100 RAM Programs)
8 drum sets with 164 drum sounds

This demo has been recorded live from a Cubase multi track midi file. Keyboard
data has been recorded with a Korg M1 keyboard.
Recorded directly from the output of 05R/W. No additional effects, no overdubs and no other synthesizers were used.
This demo uses some of the advantaged capabilities of the 05R/W like pitch bending and controlling reverb depth and reverb time via the Midi track.

Attention: Before loading any new sounds into your instrument you
should back-up your own sounds.
You can do this by recording a MIDI data dump with a sequencer software and saving the result as a standard MIDI file (*.mid).
In the sequencer any MIDI filters must be switched off (record and play Sysex data).
Please adjust the KORG 05R/W Global menu as follows:
- MIDI GLOBAL CH = 1 - MIDI-FILTERING PRG: ena EXCL: ena - PROGRAM MEMORY PROTECT: off - COMBINATION MEMORY PROTECT: off
Now start recording in the sequencer.
At the instrument start sending a sysex dump ("ALL DATA") via the Global menu.
When the display shows up "completed" you can stop recording. Save the result as standard MIDI file ("mysounds.mid").
Test integrity of the saved file before loading other sounds!
This is how you can do that. Change a letter of the last patch name (program 99). Save the changes. (The sound remains the same, only the name has changed.) Controll: Chose patch 99. Is the new name visible?
Now you can send back your data recorded previously from the sequencer
back to the synthesizer. This is done by simply playing the MIDI file.
After receiving this data the name of patch 99 should be the original again. (You have to recall the patch.)
If this worked fine you can start sending new sound banks to the synthesizer in the same manner.
In the old days I used a software called "MIDI quest" or "Sound quest" that
was able to collect, sort and store sounds for various synthesizers. I do not
know, whether they still exist.
Without such a software it will be very time consuming to sort the sounds inside the 05R/W (using "delete" and "store/save to" functions).
The 05classics sound set contains
|Electric organs and church organs|
|31||Guitars and distorted and non-distorted e-guitars|
|50||Pianos and electric pianos|
