Trying to import new styles into my EK-50 (without luck!)

I have applied 2.4 patch to my EK-50 and ran format on a USB stick.
This created a EK-50 dir on the root and an empty SetList dir under that.

I then created the STYLE and PROGRAM dirs under EK-50 and copied
2BEATSW1.STY2BEATSW1.STY to the STYLE dir, renaming it to USER01.STY.

Inserted stick in EK-50, ran UserStyleLoad
It says processing, but never completes.

After a half hour, I restarted the EK-50.

Any idea of what I am doing wrong? Do I need to provide some other file other than a STY file?

Thanks guys

Try a different USB. I had a spot of this trouble which was solved by a different USB. Presumably the styles are compatible with the EK-50?

Try some of the PA50/80 packs on the downlaod forum page, they work ok.

Choose one on the left in the side header which offers 'dedicated' STY files

Just copy maybe one to start - USER01.STY into the style folder and it will work ( they are mostly in sets 1-3 )
They only take seconds to load - so dont hang around, if it wont load within a minute it's not going to!

Just a tip - if you want to load the 6 sets available then simply re-number a second set of 1-3's and change the numbers to from 1 2 +3 to 4 5 and 6.

Only problem is - without a 'style manager' we are limited to what is contained in these and cant 'hand' pick' the contents within each to make six folders of 16 to make up the loadable 96 slots.

If you get a way to do this then please share..... as myself and Mitzie would be very keen to know .....maybe it could be done on another model arranger - saved to usb and simply loaded then to the EK50

Hope you manage ok

Keith

ps....going to try on the Liverpool - load back to Laptop and then copy to stick to load on EK50

Hello
I am looking for Indian styles & sounds for my new EK50

I was told that the PA50 styles are also compatible? if someone can help.

@Backpool - can you share the link where the PA50 styles are available for downloading?

Thanks

its just the download section on here - see pa50/80 sets

- http://www.korgforums.com/downloads.htm

You will need to manage them though as there is no way of sorting/managing on the ek50 itself . as there are no 'dedicated' sets of 16 which suit the ek50 when you load you sort of 'get what your given' ....if you see my point.

It is high time somebody in the style houses were selling something 'specific' for this model ....I really think they are missing out on business here.....noboby to my knowledge is producing anything ....Yes, you can buy ek50 styles but non in correct numbers within each folder to suit the various genres !!!

The big issue here is - Unlike PA models, where you can load and then sort out style sets on the actual board itself, you just CANT with the EK50
Ok I dont expect this facility and function on a board at such a low price point , but if user styles are able to be loaded, we should then be able to have access to fully suitable style packs to do this with.

Best of luck - Keith
