    … PS – Chinh-do, please find attached the file mentioned above. I didn’t want to mail it directly to the list because it’s large like all .01w files are. It is, however zipped down to 100k. It has one bank of progs and one bank of combis. A few organs are nice, some spacey stuff and new-age pads. Enjoy, and thanks again for maintaining an excellent list and web page.

    Subject: Files available for download

    I have uploaded a VERY BIG zip file (13 MB) containing all the sounds that i found on the web for the 01w. This is the result of 1 year of searches. It has any kind of strings, brasses, pianos, drums, general midi… finally, everything! Chin, please download this file and make it avaiable for all the users at the group site. When you do that, please let me know, because i will delete the file to open more space to upload more files about the 01w. One more time, i’m sorry about bad english.

    Subject: New version of diskimage
    Chinh, I made a new version of diskimage that is fault tolerant. This version is 2.3FT . I was noticing that some people have bad sectors on their disks. This is normal. Its completely valid that there can be bad sectors on any disk. The older version of diskimage would stop upon encountering these bad sectors. Version 2.3 is fault tolerant in that it reads a sector at a time and upon encountering a bad sector, it prints out a message saying that a bad sector has been found and trys to continue on. If you encounter a bad sector upon writing to floppy, the best thing to do is to stop and re-execute the program with the ‘s’ option. This will select single sector write mode. It takes quite a bit more time to do , but is more reliable. Most people were complaining about the program crashing in track 79. I took a look at what is stored here, and found nothing. So, if it finds bad sectors up there, chances are there is no important data there anyway. -Mike

    PS. I also included a diskimage of the 01W/fd floppy that ships with a new unit. This has all the original demo sequences. Freeware (no support). 3/28/2000.

    Chin, I was browsing my old files the other day and came across “The Best of the 01W” data. These
    are the original sequences that went into making the CD. I think its alright to post since the music stores were giving these out to people back when it was released. They are all zipped and in diskimage format. Feel Free to post.

    Hi everyone… I’ve got a KORG 01w/fd and am looking for software that will let me bring my sequences from the KORG into a PC where I can see it, make changes to rhythm, note duration etc then send it back into the KORG sequencer with the new corrections.

    Hello guys

    I have a 01/WFd which I transmitted patches from
    this site; lots of FaBuLOuS sounds 😉 !

    But I´m facing a problem when I want to go using the original Progs/Combis the 01/WFd had stored previous ly dumped data inside and the manual doesn´t include anything about restoring the unit´s original patches.

    Now, this site used to have the original Progs&
    Combis zip file but can´t find them anymore :/

    I would appreciate Much if some-one with the
    01W original soundset zip file could send them
    for me =)

    Thank you 🙂

    hola , alguien me ayuda?? help ! quiero un sonido del korg 01 para mi computadora , para usar con el Reason 4 o en formato soundfont les dejo mis coreo , tengo muchas refiill y samples para intercambiar


    Hi folks!
    Here’s a quick trick to revert all sounds and combis of your 01/W(fd) to the factory sounds.
    Beware that anything you have entered or changed in the 01/W will be lost!

    1. Press both the COMPARE and RESET buttons, keep them depressed and power on the 01/W
    2. After a few seconds, the display will show the ROM version and date. All sounds are initialized to one setting.
    3. Press the GLOBAL button, and go with the PAGE+ button to page 7.
    4. Press the LOAD soft-key and answer with YES.
    5. Now your 01/W contains the factory sounds and presets.

    Is there anyway to load all the o1wfd programs/combis to pc for Pro Tools then utilize it throught the instrument program on pro tools?
