Remove the KEY extension of the file, then unzip. Note that before loading the set in the PA, you must unprotect the styles and pads: (GLOBAL/MENU/MODE PREFERENCES/MEDIA, unprotect all but Factory Sound Protect)
This Dopamine set was mainly built with styles and sounds available on the different korg sites for PA600 and other PA’s, including MicroArranger, or on the DVD included with the PA600.
A few styles are coming from Roland, Yamaha or Technics too, converted by some unknown generous community members. Some names have been found and included in the included document.
Even if there are some oriental sounds and styles, they were not privileged because already well represented on the web.
The goal was to fill as much as possible the arranger with really good resources, without removing any compatibility. PA600 default Factory ressources are untouched. It should be 100% compatible with PA900 and PA3X.
This compilation was not so easy due to various formats of the available sets (PA3X, PA2X, PA80, MicroArranger…) and no good librarian software available from Korg or other. Some translation and adaptation were needed. Some names and STS are fully invented to bring a little bit more inspiration.
I tried as much as possible to check that no copyright was infringed.
Commercial styles are tagged with Korg protection mechanism and so they won’t appear in this set of course.
This Dopamine set is far from perfect but it’s designed to bring you many hours of fun to play with, especially for new comers to Korg arrangers.
