Introduction

Thank you for the Korg microSAMPLER. In order to take full advantage of the software, please read this manual carefully and use the product as directed.
microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian in a Nutshell
The microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian enables you to edit microSAMPLER sample data and effect parameters and transfer them between your microSAMPLER and a computer. The Editor/Librarian also allows you to import WAV or AIFF format audio files and Standard MIDI files from a computer s hard disk.

Precautions

Do not disconnect the microSAMPLER from the computer or turn off the power to the microSAMPLER during the startup process of the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian. Do not operate the microSAMPLER or the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian during data transfer. Do not disconnect the audio interface for the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian or turn off the power to such the audio interface during the startup process of the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian. Do not connect multiple microSAMPLER units to your computer when you use the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian.
Notes on USB Communication
You cannot use the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian along with a DAW or a similar application software that communicates via MIDI.
The microSAMPLER supports USB-MIDI communication. However, the microSAMPLER communicates with the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian to send or receive large amounts of data, such as samples and pattern data, using non-USB-MIDI standards. Therefore, you cannot use the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian along with a DAW or similar application that communicates via MIDI. Before you start using the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian, close all applications that communicate via MIDI. Also, before using the microSAMPLER as a USB-MIDI device, you should close the microSAMPLER Editor/ Librarian, then start a MIDI-compatible application. With Mac OS X, if you start a MIDI-compatible application while using microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian, all connected MIDI devices will be disabled. In this case, close the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian and all MIDI-compatible applications first, then restart the MIDI-compatible applications.

Troubleshooting

microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian does not start.
Make sure that your computer satisfies the system requirements. Make sure that no other applications are running. If any other application is running, the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian may fail to start or transfer data. Close all other applications, then check the operation of the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian.

Data transfer fails.

Make sure that the connected computer recognizes the microSAMPLER. On Windows XP, check this on the Hardware tab by selecting [Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Device -> Hardware]. On Windows Vista, verify this on the Sound, Video and Game Controllers tab by selecting [Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Display Hardware and Device -> Device Manager -> Sound, Video and Game Controllers]. On Mac OS X, check this on the MIDI Device tab by selecting [Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setting -> MIDI Device]. After making sure that the microSAMPLER is recognized, close the Audio MIDI Setting panel. In a Windows environment, check to see if the latest Korg USB-MIDI driver has been installed. You can download the driver from the Korg website: http://www.korg.com/ Check to see if any applications that use MIDI-based communication other than the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian are running. If such applications are running, microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian will be unable to communicate with the microSAMPLER. Close the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian and all MIDI-compatible applications, then restart the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian. Make sure that the GLOBAL page PROTECT setting on the microSAMPLER is turned OFF. If it is ON, change the setting to OFF. Check the size of the microSAMPLER data. Even if the memory space in the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian is still available, transmitting sample data and/or pattern data may fail if the current bank on the microSAMPLER has insufficient available memory space. Execute Transmit to Current Bank to send the entire bank data from the microSAMPLER Editor/Librarian to the current bank on the microSAMPLER.

No sound

Make sure that your audio interface satisfies the operational requirements.

Sound skips

Raise the value of Buffer Size on the Audio Device page in the Preferences panel. This may improve skipping sound problems.

MIDI keyboard, sound module, rhythm machine, etc.
A mic is included with the microSAMPLER. To attach the mic, connect it to the front panel AUDIO IN [ MIC] connector. If you want to use a mic to sample your voice, connect the mic to the AUDIO IN [ MIC] jack, and set the rear panel AUDIO IN [ /LINE] switch to the position (p.12). When disconnecting the mic, grasp its connector and pull it out. Do not use excessive force when connecting or disconnecting the mic. Do not apply excessive force to the gooseneck of the mic. Be aware of the mics output level when making connections.
Monitor speakers (with built-in amplier)
Turn off the power before you make connections. Careless operation may damage your speaker system or cause malfunctions.
4. Connecting your MIDI equipment and/or computer
Make these connections if you want to use the microSAMPLERs keyboard or controllers to control an external MIDI sound module, or if you want to use another MIDI keyboard or sequencer to play the microSAMPLERs sounds (p.42 Using the microSAMPLER with other MIDI devices).

Powering Up

1. Before you power up

Connect the AC adapter

1. 2. 3.
Make sure that the microSAMPLERs power is turned off. Connect the included AC adapter to the rear panel [DC9V IN] connector. Use only the included AC adapter.

If you press a key to which no sample is assigned
The sample assigned to the key above the key you pressed will play. The sample will be played at an adjusted speed (pitch) corresponding to the pitch of the key you pressed. The key LED for the sample that is playing will light.
3. Playing the pattern sequence data
The ROM bank also contains 16 patterns for the pattern sequencer. Heres how to play back these patterns.
In this mode, the single sample that you selected will be played by all thirtyseven keys at the corresponding pitches of the keyboard. The sample assigned to the C4 key will play at the same pitch as when it was sampled.
Use the [PATTERN] dial to select the pattern (116) that you want to play. For this example, well select pattern 1. Press the [PLAY/STOP] button; the pattern will play. Press the [PLAY/STOP] button once again; the pattern will stop.
Press the [KEYBOARD] button. The keyboard will be in Keyboard mode. Use the [SAMPLE SELECT] knob to select one of the samples that was assigned in Sample mode. When you operate the [SAMPLE SELECT] knob, the key LEDs to which samples are assigned will blink consecutively. Press the keyboard to play back the sample. The C4 key will play the sample at its original pitch, and other keys will play the sample at correspondingly higher or lower pitches relative to C4. The key LED for the sample assigned in Sample mode will be lit-up.
Use the [PATTERN] dial to try out other patterns.

Sampling

The illustration below shows the process of sampling, in which the level of the analog signal is read as digital data at xed intervals along the time axis.
When you sample from a mic, the sound of operations performed on the microSAMPLER (e.g., the sound of a button being pressed) might be captured as well. If this is a problem, you can take the steps described on the pages listed below. (p.24 TRIGGER) (p.40 STRT.TRIM/END TRIM)

Analog waveform Time

48 kHz = 48000 times each second = 0.0208 mS intervals
In this example, well sample the output from your audio device or rhythm machine. First well make preparations for inputting from the AUDIO IN [L/MONO] and [R] jacks.

2. Setting the tempo

You can specify the tempo either by using the Tap Tempo function (p.18 Using the Tap Tempo function) or by setting the Tempo parameter (p.22 BPM). This tempo is stored as the original tempo (p.31 ORIG BPM (Original BPM)) of the sample that were going to sample.
Using the Tap Tempo function
You can specify the tempo by pressing a button at regular intervals in time with the beat. The tempo will change when youve pressed the button twice. For greater accuracy, its best to press the button several times.
Use the [SAMPLING TYPE] switch to select ONE SHOT. Select either Keyboard mode or Sample mode. Press the [SAMPLING] button. The SAMPLING button will blink green, and youll be in samplingsetup mode. If youre in Keyboard mode, switch to Sampling mode. At this time, youll be able to hear the audio input for monitoring. The volume will depend on the sampling parameter LEVEL. Press a key to specify the key to which the sample data will be assigned. The key LED of the key you pressed will blink. This key will be the current sample.
What is the current sample?
The current sample refers to the key to which your sampling operations will apply. This will be the key that you pressed most recently in Sample mode (the key LED will blink). When you turn on the power, the C4 key is selected as the current sample.
The [EDIT] button will light; now you can set the sampling parameters (p.23). Use the [PARAMETER/FX CONTROL 1] knob to select a sampling parameter, and use the [VALUE/FX CONTROL 2] knob to specify its value. The sampling parameters let you select the sampling rate, monaural or stereo, the way in which sampling will be triggered, the sampling time, the volume during sampling, and the effect position setting. Set these parameters as shown below.
Sampling parameter RATE MONO/ST TRIGGER TIME LEVEL FX POS Value 48K STEREO SMPL SW 2/1 +0.0 dB MST FX
If you want sampling to start automatically
In step 4, use the [PARAMETER/FX CONTROL 1] knob to select the TRIGGER parameter (p.24). Use the [VALUE/FX CONTROL 2] knob to select a value in the range of THRE 01.10, and then press the [SAMPLING] button. The [SAMPLING] button will blink orange; the microSAMPLER will be in sample-standby mode, and sampling will begin automatically when the input reaches the threshold volume level you specied.

BPM... [20.0.300.0]

This species the tempo. You can also set this by using the tap tempo function (p.18 Using the Tap Tempo function).
Press the [EDIT] button to make it blink. If the [EDIT] button is not blinking, press it again until it blinks. 2. Use the [PARAMETER/FX CONTROL 1] knob to select the BANK page. 3. Press the [EDIT] button to make it light-up. 4. Use the [PARAMETER FX CONTROL 1] knob to select the desired bank parameter, and use the [VALUE/FX CONTROL 2] knob to set its value. If you want to change banks (BANK CHG) or initialize the contents of a bank (INIT.BANK), proceed to the steps explained below. 5. Press the [ENTER/SHIFT] button. 6. When the display asks SURE?, press the [ENTER/SHIFT] button once again. If you decide not to execute the operation, press the [EXIT] button to return to step 4.
AUDIO IN FX SW.... [OFF, ON]
This species whether the effect will be applied to the sound from AUDIO IN. OFF The effect will not be applied to AUDIO IN. ON The effect will be applied to AUDIO IN. If youre sampling with FX POS (p.24) set to AUDIO IN, the effect will be applied to AUDIO IN regardless of this setting.

INIT.BANK

This initializes the contents of the currently selected bank. The bank will be initialized, and the display will indicate COMPLETE. If you decide to cancel without initializing the bank, press the [EXIT] button.
3. Selecting the sampling type
On the microSAMPLER, you can choose one of ve types of sampling. Use the [SAMPLING TYPE] switch to select the sampling type.
Sampling type LOOP Explanation This mode is used for sampling entire phrases, loops or grooves; match the BPM to the tempo of the sample source for the best results. This mode is best for sampling hits, effects, and other one-shot sounds where you want the entire sample to play even if you release the key immediately. This mode is for more traditional instrument style sampling; the playback of the sample will be controlled by the keyboard playback will stop when you release the key. This mode is used to automatically place multiple samples on successive keys. The sampling time and threshold level determine the duration and start of each sample. Match the BPM to the tempo of the sample source for the best results. Using this intuitive mode, pressing a key begins sampling and assigns the sample to the key. To cease sampling, simply release the key.
This section explains how to select the sampling source and capture a sample. The sampled sound is assigned to the key (C3.B5) you specify.

ONE SHOT

While holding down the [MUTE] button, press the key that you want to un-mute, making the button go dark. The sample of the key you pressed will be un-muted; when the pattern sequencer plays, the sample of that key will be heard.
QUANTIZE...[OFF, 8, 8 TRI, 16, 16TRI, 32]
When you record a pattern by playing the keyboard, it is sometimes difcult to avoid inaccuracies in your timing. The quantize function automatically corrects these inaccuracies, making the timing perfect. By specifying the desired quantize value, you can make the notes line up with precise 8th note or 16th note timing intervals.
Parameter value OFF TRI TRI 32 Meaning Quantization will not be applied Timing will be adjusted to 8th notes Timing will be adjusted to 8th note triplets Timing will be adjusted to 16th notes Timing will be adjusted to 16th note triplets Timing will be adjusted to 32nd notes
5. Recording additional material into the pattern thats playing
You can record an additional performance from the keyboard into the pattern thats playing.
While the pattern is playing, press the [REC] button. The [REC] button will blink, and the microSAMPLER will be in pattern record standby mode. Press the [REC] button once again. Recording will begin. Play the keys that you want to add. To stop recording without stopping playback, press the [REC] button. Recording will end, but the pattern will continue playing. Once again press the [PLAY/STOP] button to stop playback.

4. Playing a pattern

Use the [PATTERN] dial to select the pattern (116) that you want to play. Press the [PLAY/STOP] button to play the pattern. Press the [PLAY/STOP] button once again to stop playback.

6. Editing a pattern

Heres how to delete unwanted key data from a recorded performance, so that the corresponding samples will not be triggered.

Using the mute function

Delay time when BPM SYNC is off
If BPM SYNC is off, you can specify the delay time in msec (millisecond) units. If the delay time multiplied by TM RATIO would exceed the allowable range of the setting, a symbol is shown at the right of the TM RATIO and delay time value, and the delay time will be the maximum allowable value.
Reference guide Delay time when BPM SYNC is on
If BPM SYNC is on, the delay time will synchronize to the tempo you specied using the [TAP TEMPO] button or the BPM (p.22) setting, or to external MIDI clock data. This is useful for live performances. If BPM SYNC is on, you can specify the delay time as a note value. For example: If BPM SYNC: ON, TM RATIO: 100%, L DELAY: 1/8, and R DELAY: . 3/16, the left channel delay time will be an 8th note and the right channel delay time will be a dotted 8th note. If the delay time multiplied by TM RATIO would exceed the allowable range of the setting, a symbol is shown at the right of the TM RATIO, and the delay time will be half the specied value. If half the specied value would still exceed the allowable range, the delay time will be 1/4th, 1/8th, 1/16th etc. of the specied value.
