Hey ho. cool

I recently purchased a set of new presets/setups for my Kurzweil PC3A6 from a place known as "Barb And Company" ... https://www.barbandco.com/store/p104/Full_Pack_PC3K.html

The purchase went fine, and the download of the new presets into my desktop computer went fine. I'm sure transferring them to a USB thumb drive will also be no trouble. The PC3 has a USB A port specifically for uploading new stuffs into the machine. There's a "LOAD" function that makes it all possible as well.

What I'm having trouble with is the file is formatted as *.rar ....

The LOAD chapter of the manual only speaks of files that have suffixes like *.P3A and so on. There's no "*.rar" listed in the manual, and there's nothing on either the Kurzweil website or the barbandco website about what to do with this *.rar file. My desktop doesn't tell me to "unpack" this file either. (It actually has a file name, I'm just protecting it by replacing the file name with an asterisk).

The LAST thing I want to do is fuddup my Kurzweil or somehow corrupt the files I just paid for. I've written the folks at barbandco regarding this issue, but have not heard back just yet.

Any suggestions (other than wait for the company to reply)?

These new presets are a thing of wonder. They are programs that go SO FAR BEYOND anything I've heard done with programming the V.A.S.T. synth engine. Truly modern sounds, there's even a few subsets that totally reconfigure the V.A.S.T. engine into FM synth architecture with DX-7 type algorithms. All without having to use new samples (the "A" models of the PC3 synths cannot upload new samples anyhow).

We're not talkin' yo daddy's piano sounds here! 654 new programs AND 105 new setups ... $105.40 total cost. Shweet.

Now ... if I can only work out how to load the silly things!

Any help?

Thank you.

cool

Well I'll be fucked. Thanks!

I didn't bother with Big Brother (google) because I incorrectly thought it was some proprietary file encoding stuff. Obviously the lesson here is "stick to basics" first.

Thanks so much.

Done. I installed "winRar", unpacked the Barbandco folder, and now I have all of the new programs in their individual folders, with the proper file extensions, just as expected.

I'm old.

Thanks once more.
