Please note that you must also update your M3 Editor Software to version 2.0.


Important Note: This upgrade will rewrite the contents of the internal data such as the programs and combinations. If the internal memory of your M3 contains important data that you want to keep, you must use the Media mode “Save .PCG” or “Save All” commands to save it on your own USB storage device before you can proceed with this upgrade procedure. Any custom combis will have to be saved before the upgrade and then re-built after the upgrade is completed. Likewise, all your Songs will have to be converted to the new Program order after upgrading, referencing the new Voice name List. This update will also overwrite the data of effect presets P01–P15. If you’ve created effect presets, you should save them to U00–U15 before you proceed with the upgrade. When programs/ combinations that were saved by M3 version 1 are loaded into the M3 XPANDED, some sounds may not be completely identical.

Warning: DO NOT attempt to downgrade your OS from 2.0 to 1.2 or earlier – this is not supported and will render your M3 inoperable without help from your local Distributor and Korg Inc.


For more info on what this upgrade means to your data and how to convert it read this.
