Korg Italy, you are the best !
Thanks to a PA4X owner who exported most of his Pa4X factory styles as MIDI SMF, I can now convert the missing ones to the PA600.
As the process is long and sometimes difficult, because the PA4X styles are complex with several Chord Variation and different root scales, here are only the two first styles I converted: “Kiss Sky Pop” and “Falling Dance”
They sound different from the PA4X due to sounds changes and different STS and Pads.
I hope you’ll appreciate. More coming later …
You read it right !
Korg is incredible. They just release a new OS with a major functionality addition, 5 years after Korg PA600 arrived on the market.
With this v2.0 of the OS, you can officially enter the sampling mode, i.e. samples edition. No hack needed.
Thanks a lot Korg for this upgrade at no cost ! I’ve now chosen my next keyboard’s brand.
We can hope this will increase new sounds creation by the community. Feel free to share your work by sending or by linking in the comments below.

With PA700 and PA1000, Korg updates the PA600 and PA900 with more memory, more functions and the great Kaoss feature, already available on the PA4X since the OS v2.
New sounds and styles are available too, as usual. But it seems they still rely on the Dopamine set to fill the empty slots of their huge memory !
As I can’t test the set on these new beasts, you are welcome to share your experience after loading the Dopamine set on a PA700 or on PA1000. Check the download section !
Korg just released a new version of the OS and the resources for the PA4X. Happy owners !
You’ll get new sounds, new styles, and major new features like the Kaoss effects mainly for modern music.
Very happy to see Korg keeping its promise to keep their gear up to date not only the first 3 months for fixing bugs but also bringing new major enhancements and contents.

Bravo Korg ! Well done ! Keep going on with the PA900 and PA600 please.
Olavier did a nice work by adapting Jean-Michel Jarre’s tracks to PA50 styles, many years ago. I tried to contact him without success. It seems he disappeared from the internet leaving many videos behind him, and sad users who hoped for compatibility or improved version.
Here is my small contribution. I converted the styles to PA600 and added or converted STS.
38 styles like Jarre Oxygene, Equinoxe, Rendez-Vous, or Chronology and other composers for Koto, ForeverYoung, Jump, … These styles are difficult to use and quite basic. You need to check Olavier’s videos on YouTube to understand how to use them, or just let your fingers find the inspiration, then adapt them to your own taste.

Happy PA4X owners, you get 14 Pop, ballad and Rock new styles for your keyboard.
Volumes 25 and 26 are now available. Volume 24 was already present for some months.
Come on Korg ! Previous models were advertised as “never obsolete”, so please have a thought for them. The conversion shouldn’t be a big deal.
