i3/EK 50 Styles
« on: February 18, 2023, 04:33:51 PM »
I know many of the styles on board the i3 and EK50 are sourced from previous Korg PA80-era arrangers....and therefore available on the Styles page here.

I'm curious if anyone has seen any of the additional Korg styles since then -- up to the ones they are including on the new EK Caribbean models etc. which I haven't heard yet....

thanks in advance...

The EK50 was essentially a stripped down PA300, so yes a lot of the styles were re-used.

Heck, one of my friends is a huge Korg fan, and still loves the PA1000, and had been looking forward to the PA5x for 5 years... but when it arrived, he was underwhelmed at how many styles were re-used (about 2/3 are re-used). I told him to lower his expectations for that since *everybody* re-uses old styles, and then adds new ones. I mean, if they were so good and you really enjoyed them on your older keyboard, why would they throw them all out? Happens on any brand.

I would've loved to grab the styles out of the korgs, but they've made it insanely obtuse to do so. In particular I would've loved to grab all the Beatles styles out of the Korg Liverpool, and of course the ultra modern ones from the PA1000/Pa4x and now the PA5x (which I did find how to export the styles from PA5x/4x, but again without a hex editor handy, and no frame of reference on the new style header file from Korg, no idea how to extract into a Yamaha style).

Although I suppose we *could* always record a midi file using all the style parts and then feed through the brilliant Jorgen Sorensen's midi to style...

although a native style to style converter would still be better.

Oh, and the PA80 era arrangers styles? A lot are *still* used to this date, including on the PA5x. Hey, they were really good!

thank you Patrick! wow!

Always really liked the Korg style approach and am curious about these genre-speciality EKs they announced recently. why the Liverpool styles were so locked to that device is beyond me.
even the early PA80 styles sound really nice and settled on the genos....really looking forward to working with these.

thank you.

Here is a demo, unusually simple if you compare it with busy accompaniments famous brands prefer to show the power of their new gears.

Here you can really appreciate the quality of sounds.

Enjoy!

Hi Patrick --

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Great conversions. I just auditioned some of these styles on Genos and people should definitely snag these gems.

Dear Sir,
If possible, can I have the i3/EK styles back on this forum please as your drop box is deleted. I opened this forum after a while. Appreciate.
Regards.

Many thanks for the conversions. Korg have always had some great styles, so I'm looking forward to trying these out later.  :)
