New MIDI-PAC v2 MPC file for the KORG NS5R Synthesiser module

Supersoniqs send me a KORG NS5R module as it doesn't play well in combination with a MIDI-PAC v2. After some investigation it seem that the NS5R doesn't have a yazz drumkit present inside bank 127. Instead it has some voice inside that bank which tries to play notes instead of drums. After switching the drumkit to bank 62 it all works fine.
As the volumes wasn't balanced as it should, I adjusted the volumes and tweaked some voices to give it a bit richer sound. As the NS5R module has a lot of nice sounds hidden away in non GM banks, the module could sound a lot better then it's doing now but this new MPC file is a good start.

You can find the new MPC file in the download section.
