Hi all, new to this forum, first post: I’m restoring a Korg Trinity v. 2.2-something (not the V3) and made the apparently fatal error of performing a factory reset, wiping out all the factory patches. I’ve just learned the hard way that the Trinity ‘doesn’t’ have the ability to restore factory sounds from internal ROM? Instrument works great otherwise. I’m unable to find a simple sysex file for these factory sounds no matter where I look, instead the consensus seems to be to purchase new versions of the old floppies containing the original .PCG files. Which I’m glad to do if there’s no other solution, but…am I missing something? Shouldn’t restoring factory sounds on the Trinity be a trivial sysex thing? Does anyone have or know of a sysex file to restore these factory sounds to the Trinity (again, v 2.2x) that they’d be kind enough to share? Grateful for any info or insight anyone may have here, thanks!
You can download the factory sounds from Korg website and copy them to a gloppy disk . They are available on a lot of websites including KorgForums.
Thanks for the reply - prior to my post here, I was able to source the .PCG files you’re referring to fairly easily and I agree, they’re available on a lot of websites. I also agree that those files could then be copied to a floppy disk, those same sites indicate the MS-DOS format. Without the means to copy the Trinity preload .PCG files to a floppy disk personally and in the interest of time, I’d like to thank Keyboard Kountry for making copies of the Trinity preload disks available for sale. Once the sounds are restored to the Trinity, I may experiment with saving them as a sysex file and if it works, share the results.
Hi, did you have any luck with the sysex method?
I’ll soon find myself in the exact same situation with the inability to easily create floppies (I understand it’s impossible on Windows 64bit machines)
