Resetting the Korg ToneWorks AX1000G User Programs to Factory Defaults

I bought a Korg ToneWorks AX1000G recently, and the prior owner had a lot of custom settings on it that I needed to erase. I needed this thing back on factory default settings. To do so, you need to do the following:

Hold down the Bank and Exit buttons while turning on the power (as shown below). The unit should display RELOAD? in the display. Once this shows, you can release the buttons, and to confirm, press the Write button. When finished, the unit will display COMPLT when finished.




Copyright Claims and YouTube



Ever get an email like that after posting your own music? I get them all of the time. When I first saw this, I was all confused… I knew this was my original work! How can someone else have a copyright claim on my music?!

Generally, it is not something to worry about. If, like a lot of indie musicians out there, you are using CDBaby to distribute your music, you most likely then signed up for Sync Licensing when you distributed your music there. The link there to Sync Licensing will take you to this page under your artist account, which explains more on how it works:



In fact, if you scoll down to the bottom of that page, you will see this important notice:

Important note for YouTube users: If you log into your YouTube account and see a copyright notice next to your videos, don’t worry! CD Baby will collect money for the usage of your music in videos (this includes videos you upload). This notice means the content ID system identified your song and it’s now setup to generate revenue for that video. You don’t need to take action. CD Baby is not claiming ownership of your song.

See? all should be just fine. This confused me when I first saw it… so hopefully this post helps another artist along the way.

Ambient Musician (or really any genre) HOW-TO Posts

In addition to letting folks know about my new releases, projects, etc., I am also going to start publishing posts about industry trials and tribulations, and even as granular as using some tools – physical or software.

For my day job, I am a Senior Architect who works around assisting customers with Microsoft SharePoint and Azure. I am also very involved in the SharePoint community. I speak at conferences, run the Boston Area SharePoint Users Group, I run a fairly popular blog (according to the stats) on SharePoint, Azure, and other things… I do a lot of knowledge sharing for my work life. And thinking this might be useful for my non-work life as well, well, one aspect of it at least.

FEEDBACK folks! Would this be helpful? Am I wasting time? Let me know! Drop a comment below…
