Korg sells a General MIDI (GM) disk, order number XPD-15. Loading this disk makes your 01/W GM compatible by loading Programs that have been edited to match the GM standard as closely as Korg could get it. Studying the way Korg assigned Multi-Sounds is a good way to see how you might create your own Programs. This table can also help you get started in creating your own GM-compatible Banks. (You can't totally re-create the Korg disk because there are several Program settings that are not shown here.)
