INTRODUCTION
Basically i2/i3 instruments equipped with a hard disk have the same user interface as conventional
i2/i3 instruments. Additional buttons or switches are not required.
You can use all the loading (LOAD) and saving (SAVE) commands for data (All Data, Programs,
Arrangements, Styles, Backing Sequences, Sequences) as you did before. This goes for the i2/i3 HD
as well as for i2/i3 instruments with a hard disk and User Style Expansion (i2/i3 EX).
Until now page 1 of DISK mode (DISK 1: LOAD ALL) has provided a LOAD ALL DATA command, with
which all the data from a floppy disk drive could be loaded. The following functions were shown in the
display (see ill. 1).

Until now "FILE:" has been shown above cursor position key A. Cursor position keys B or C have been
used to load the files stored on floppy disk.
With the new operating system you can choose between the floppy disk drive and the 10 hard disk
partitions (C-L) by pressing cursor position key A and using the VALUE dial or the DOWN/UP keys
(see ill. 2).

1. Function "LOAD ONE SONG"
Please select "LOAD ONE SONG" on page 2 of DISK mode. After pressing cursor position key A you
can choose between the floppy disk drive and hard disk partition by using the VALUE dial or the
DOWN/UP keys. Now use cursor position key B or C to call up the table of contents of the selected
partition.
Songs can be selected alphabetically as well as numerically (song location number):
If you are used to assigning the songs of your repertoire to fixed memory locations on your mass
storage device (hard disk) you can do the same with the hard disk of your i2/i3. Load the songs one
after another in the desired order. The memory locations (song numbers) will be kept unchanged until
you delete the files.
Select the hard disk partition and use cursor position key B or C to call up the corresponding directory
(table of contents).
SELECTING SONGS NUMERICALLY
To select songs numerically, hold down cusor position key D and use the Arrangement/Style keys

NOTE: Controller, program and note commands of the Standard MIDI File format (GM) are
internationally standardized. If you prefer using specific KORG outboard effect processors or the
additional Programs in banks C and D as well as the convenient user interface of the song format
which is provided on the main page of the sequencer, you can store any Standard MIDI File in the
song format of your i2/i3 HD as well. This results in shorter loading times of the processor and allows
you to create song chains of any length (please refer to "4. Function NEXT SONG").
2. Function "LOAD STANDARD MIDI FILE"
Select "LOAD STANDARD MIDI FILE" on page 2 of DISK mode. Press cursor position key A and use
the VALUE dial or the DOWN/UP keys to choose between the floppy disk drive and hard disk
partitions. Then use cursor position key B or C to call up the desired Standard MIDI File.
Standard MIDI Files (SMFs) can be selected alphabetically as well as numerically (song location
number):
If you are used to assigning the songs of your repertoire to fixed memory locations on your mass
storage device (hard disk), you can do the same with the hard disk of your i2/i3. Simply load the
Standard MIDI Files one after another in the desired order. The memory locations (file numbers) will be
kept unchanged until you delete the files.
SELECTING SMFs NUMERICALLY
Select the hard disk partition and use cursor position key B or C to call up the corresponding directory
(table of contents).
To select Standard MIDI Files numerically, hold down cusor position key E and use the
Arrangement/Style keys (DATA ENTRY keys) to enter the desired file number (see ill. 4).

them back one after another without a break.

song (except for the last one).
If you want to play back a single song out of a song chain, you must press the STOP key at the end of
