i40M Operating System
Release 3.0 (981419)
Introduction
•
Keyboard Set Lock
The KORG i40M Music Module can be constantly improved and
updated with new functions. The new version of the operating
system may already be included in your instrument. If not, you
can load it from a 2DD (double density) or 2HD (high density)
disk.
To check the version of the operating system contained in your
instrument turn on the instrument while holding the DISK/GLOBAL button pressed. The display shows the version number of
the operating system (6-digit number). Check that the number
corresponds with the current version (981419) or with a previous
one.
If your instrument includes an older version, you can contact
your dealer to request the disks of the new version, or download
it from the Internet site www.korg.it.
Once you have downloaded the operating system follow the
instructions contained in the “Loading the operating system”
section to prepare the i40M system disks and load the system
into the instrument.

Loading the operating system
Loading the original data
The Accessory Disk, supplied with the instrument, contains the
i40M original preset data. This includes A, B, C, D, E, F program
banks, A, B, USER arrangement banks, and USER bank styles.
You can also download these data from www.korg.it
(“IS_IFD.PRE” file).
Note: When loading the original data, don’t forget to set the
“Keyboard Set Lock” parameter to OFF, and the “Master Transpose Lock” parameter to ON, as described on page 4 of this
additional manual.
1. Insert the Accessory Disk (or the disk where you copied the
“IS_IFD.PRE” file) into the disk drive.
Preparing an i40M operating system disk
An i40M operating system disk must be prepared if you have
downloaded the operating system from www.korg.it. The operating system is contained in a compressed directory named
"I40M-30.ZIP".
Extract the files contained in the compressed archive ("I40M30.ZIP"). The system creates a folder named "I40M-30", which
contains two files: "981419.IM" (the operating system) and
"i40M_30-ENG.PDF" (this document in Adobe Acrobat format.
Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from the Adobe site
www.adobe.com).
Copy the operating system file "981419.IM" in a Dos/Windows or
i40M disk.
Note: Macintosh users can prepare disks in Dos/Windows format only if their computer is provided with utilities such as PCExchange, DOS-Mounter or AccessPC. The latest Macintosh
computers are provided with PC-Exchange. Refer to Mac documentation and Help.
2. Keep the SONG PLAY and DISK/GLOBAL buttons pressed
down, and turn the instrument on.
3. As soon as the Test page appears on the display, release the
buttons.
4. Press PAGE [+] repeatedly, until you reach the Preload page:

Saving the contents of the i40M memory
Loading the new operating system will not delete the data contained in the instrument memory (arrangements, styles, programs). In any case, if the memory contains new data that differ
from the KORG default data, we recommend to save the contents on a disk, in order to avoid the risk of losing data because
of problems when loading the operating system.
The KORG default data (“FACTORY” file) are also contained in
the Accessory Disk disk supplied with the instrument. If necessary, you can download them from www.korg.it. See the “Loading the original data” section below.
1. Insert a formatted disk into the disk drive.
5. Press the CURSOR [>] button to start the loading.
Note: If you loaded the Preload data from a 1.44MB disk, an
error message can appear. However, the Preload operation
was completed successfully.
6. Turn the instrument off, and then on again.
New functions in the Arrangement
Play mode
2. Press DISK/GLOBAL to access the Disk/Global mode.
3. Select <SAVE> and press ENTER/YES.
4. Select <ALL> and press ENTER/YES.
Automatic setup of the Vocal/Guitar section during startup
5. Name the new file (the system automatically assigns the
name NEW_FILE that can be modified by the user).
The VOCAL/GUITAR section will automatically be assigned the
settings memorised in the A1 Keyboard Set when the instrument
is turned on. You can save your startup settings on Keyboard Set
A1.
6. Press ENTER/YES to confirm. At the end, remove the disk
and keep it in a safe place.
Loading the new operating system
1. Insert the operating system disk into the disk drive.
Memorizing the Master Transpose in the arrangements
2. Turn on the instrument, while holding the REC/WRITE and
EXIT/NO buttons pressed.
The Master Transpose can be memorised in the arrangement or
Keyboard Set (see “Write Arrangement” function in the Owner’s
Manual).
When selecting an arrangement or Keyboard Set, the Master
Transpose can change according to the status of the “Master
Transpose Lock” parameter (see explanation on page 4 in this
manual).
3. The display shows the operating system identification
number (981419) and loading automatically starts.
4. The message “Update Completed - Power Off” appears
when loading is completed.
5. Turn off the instrument and turn it on again.
6. If you wish, you can set the "Master Transpose Lock" parameter on ON (see page 4 in this manual). This will allow the
Master Transpose and Keyboard Set to work as in the previous version of the operating system. Save these settings
onto the Global file, using the “Write Global” function.
Programming the status of the Upper 1, Upper 2
and Lower tracks
The status of the Upper 1, Upper 2 and Lower tracks can be programmed, just like the tracks of the automatic accompaniment,
on Page 4 in the Arrangement Play mode (“Programming the
tracks (2)”).
7. Note: Due to the new “Master Transpose Lock” parameter,
when loading older Keyboard Sets, the Transpose value
could be different from “0”. We suggest you set this parameter to ON, or to modify and save again the Keyboard Sets.

OFF
The track does not play.
INT
The track plays the i40M programs, but does
not send any data to the MIDI OUT.
EXT
The track sends data to the MIDI OUT, but
does not play the i40M programs.
BOTH
The track plays the i40M programs and sends
data to the MIDI OUT.
Assigning Keyboard Set parameters to the
selected track
When you select a Keyboard Set in Song Play mode, the Upper
1 track parameters (memorized in the Keyboard Set) are
assigned to the selected song track.
The other Keyboard Set track settings (Upper 2, Lower) are
ignored.
New functions in the Disk/Global
mode
Manual Bass
The new Manual Bass function is intended to help accordion
players to remotely control their i40M.
Select the MIDI Setup 1 or 3 (where the i40M bass track is controlled through MIDI channel 3). At this point, you have the following conditions:
• if the accompaniment is running, you can play chords to be
sent to the i40M arranger, but can’t manually play the bass
track of i40M. None of the accompaniment tracks of i40M
can receive MIDI data.
•
if the accompaniment is not running, you can manually play
the bass track of i40M on the MIDI accordion. You can, therefore, stop the accompaniment for a moment, and manually
play the i40M bass with your left hand. If the Lower track is
active, it is played together with the bass track. The accompaniment tracks can receive data from MIDI.
•
if the CHORD SCANNING is set to OFF (all LEDs switched
off), and – as a consequence – the chord recognition is
deactivated, you can manually play the i40M bass, either in
play or stop status. When the Chord Scanning is set to Off,
the only active accompaniment track is the Drum track.
Loading arrangements in the A and B banks
The A and B arrangement banks are reserved to factory-set
arrangements, while the USER bank is reserved to the arrangements loaded from disk.
However, you can load different arrangements in the A and B
banks to personalize the basic material of the i40M.
Warning: This operation must only be performed by expert
users, since it modifies the basic material of the instrument. In
case of problems after you have performed the operation, you
can retrieve the original arrangements from www.korg.it. Or you
can reload all the original data from the Accessory Disk supplied
with the instrument.
Warning: Do not load arrangements using USER styles in the A
and B banks. If other styles are loaded from disk, the arrangements may no longer work properly.
1. Create a personalised arrangement bank in the USER bank.
2. Save the contents of the memory in a new file. Press DISK/
GLOBAL to enter the Disk/Global mode.
3. Move the cursor to <SAVE> and press ENTER/YES.
4. Move the cursor to <ARR> and press ENTER/YES.
New functions in the Song Play mode
5. Give a name to the file and confirm with ENTER/YES.
6. At the end press EXIT/NO to go back to Page 1 in the Disk/
Global mode.
Arabic scale recognition
7. Move the cursor to <LOAD> and press ENTER/YES.
The new version of the operating system recognizes the exclusive system message in GS format that enables the selection of
Arabic scales in the Song Play mode. The scale will be correctly
selected when reading an SMF in GS format with scale changes
with the i40M.
8. Select <ALL> and press ENTER/YES.
9. Select <ARR> and press ENTER/YES.
10. Select the file in which the arrangements have been saved
with the TEMPO/VALUE buttons.
11. If you wish to load the arrangements in the A bank, press the
PROGRAM/ARRANG button to turn the ARRANG LED on,
then keep the A button of the PROGRAM/ARRANGEMENT
section pressed and press ENTER/YES. To load the
arrangements in the B bank, press the PROGRAM/ARRANG
button to turn the ARRANG LED on, then keep the B button
of the PROGRAM/ARRANGEMENT section pressed and
press ENTER/YES.
Compatibility with i2, i3, i4S, iX300, and i5S/M
data
The i40M can load data from KORG i2, i3, i4S, i5S, i5M, and
iX300 disks and use the styles and arrangements of these
instruments. Data is read in the same way as any other disk in
the i40M native format.
However, programs, songs in proprietary format (.SNG), backing
sequences and Global cannot be read from these instruments
(due to the great differences with the samples contained in the
ROM).

Compatibility with iS40, iS50, iS35 and iS50B
data
VOCAL/GTR Selecting a Keyboard Set will change the realtime tracks parameters (Arrangement Play
mode) or the selected track parameters (Song
Play mode).
The i40M is directly compatible with all iS40, iS50, iS35 and
iS50B data. The disks of each instrument can be directly read by
another instrument in the same series.
The only limitations are:
• The absence of the Keyboard Sets in the iS50 and iS50B.
The Keyboard Sets saved by the other instruments will not
be read by the iS50 and iS50B.
•
KBS
Selecting a Keyboard Set will modify the
VOCAL/GUITAR settings.
Master Transpose Lock
[ON/OFF]
If ON, this function prevents the general chromatic transposition
from being modified, when a different arrangement or Keyboard
Set is selected.
The absence of the Vocal/Guitar section in the iS40, iS50,
and iS50B. The settings of this section will not be read by the
other instruments.
New pedal assignable function
New “Keyboard Set / Master Transpose Lock”
page
On Page 13 (“Assignable Pedal”) a new “ACC 1-3 MUTE/PLAY”
function can be assigned to the pedal. This function matches the
TRK.SELECT/ACC 1-3 MUTE button on the control panel.
On Page 12 (“Keyboard Set / Master Transpose Lock”) you can
decide (1) which parameters are modified when selecting a Keyboard Set, in Arrangement Play and Song Play modes, and (2) if
the Master Transpose will change when selecting an arrangement or a Keyboard Set.
New USER scales
Ten programmable scales have been added, for a total number
of 14 USER scales.
