I remember seeing somewhere that you could only access 1 bank in the Korg Legacy M1, and you needed to create a new user bank. Can anyone give me a little guidance as to how to accomplish this. Am I saving the bank as a new file or within the synth itself?
Yes, that’s what I’m doing - I use the first user bank and copy my presets there (and customize them to my taste). The cool thing: user banks are local to the plugin instance, so I have a couple of M1 racks, all with different user banks. It’s like having multiple M1 sitting around: one for string layers, one for solo sounds, one for general synth use…
I am still confused on this. I have been copying patches to “Card User 1” and then modifying them there. Then I create a new state and select the patch from within that bank. I have Selected Program and Entire Bank selected (both check boxes) in the State Behavior box.
I save the rack and all seems good.
Then I drop the linked rack into a song, and some states point correctly and some don’t.
If I’m understanding correctly then you might be confusing “Selected Program” as a means to recall the M1 tone of it’s GUI directly but it is for the pseudo Preset Program numbers at the top of the Vsti GUI box. These are Cantabile based. So what I have to do in your situation is select a new pseudo preset number and rename it and then select the actual patch from the M1 gui. I repeat the process for additional presets. That’s how I do it anyway. Someone else may have a better way.
