How to save a sequencer song!!!

How to save a sequencer song on the Korg Kronos:

When the Kronos starts up, it does not load a sequencer song into memory. Here are the steps to save a song, and then save it to disk, and then how to load it again the next time you start the synthesizer up.

Starting in sequencer mode:

I’ve been playing keyboard since I was about 8, but have never taken formal lessons. I’m self taught and mostly play by ear. I have a YouTube channel for my music, and one for my Basenji’s!

If you’re interesting in computer programming, feel free to check out my blog, where I post the things I’ve been learning about PHP, Laravel, and other technologies.

Although I don’t ride BMX, I love to watch Scotty Cranmer’s YouTube channel. As one of my personal programming projects, I built a site for his fans that allows them to find videos much faster than you can directly on YouTube. If you are interested in BMX, ScottyFan.com might interest you!
