Operating System

OS Version 1.07 Upgrade

PC:Operating System:MS2000_V107rev.zip
 

OS Version 1.07 Upgrade
This file contains a PC-based updater and documentation on how to use it and what it fixes in the MS-2000. This latest revision is compatible with Windows XP.

The main fixes are as follows:
- Tightened up the Arpeggio timing delay with MIDI Sync.

- Virtual Patch: smoothed out the minus Intensity Value when you specify SOURCE as VELOCITY, KBD TRACK, MIDI1 or MIDI2 and specify DESTINATION as OSC1CRT1. (Both Ver1.04 and Ver1.05 had this problem).

- Arpeggio Mode: Improved the first KEY ON timing when you specify KeySync = OFF

OS Version 1.05 Upgrade

PC:Operating System:MS2KOS105.zip
 

OS Version 1.05 Upgrade
This file contains a PC-based updater and documentation on how to use it and what it fixes in the MS-2000.

Users who have versions lower than 1.04 should absolutely perform this upgrade. Users who have version 1.04 will only see small delay depth edits to a few presets, so it "may" not be worth the effort. Korg always advises to use the most current OS.

To find your OS version hold the MOD SEQ and 5 keys while turning on the unit. The display will show My Version Is and two numbers. While they don't directly translate to 1.03, 1.04 if it has a 3 in it you have OS 1.03. If it has a 4 in it you have OS 1.04.
