I have a Korg TR-Rack synth module, an old piece of MIDI gear with some great sounds, but for years it has sat unused. I recently hooked it up to my Cubase setup, but was still unable to search the banks (1024 patches…) by category, making it almost unusable. I searched the internets in vain for an insturment file (xml). So I made one myself, previewing all 1024 patches and annotating the patch names, so now you can type in a category like “motion pad” and scroll through only those patches using the arrow keys. Fantastic!
For anyone who uses Cubase and has a TR-Rack, this will save you a good 20 hours of work. The button above will take you to my Dropbox site where you can download the file. There is also a text file with instructions, and a pdf of the TR-Rack User Manual.
