    A confusing question. The patches aren't in midi per se, they are
    ingoing/outgoing via the sysex protocol.

    If you need the factory sounds, you can initialize the patches to the
    default. I forgot how, it's in the manual. If you don't have a manual
    I'll hunt for mine, but assume it's all available on a web site
    somewhere.

    If you're trying to out put sysex information to an external device,
    again, it will do a patch dump. Again the manual.

    If you want, for some other reason, to have the M1 patches outside the
    machine, there are a number of shareware and freeware patch-editors for
    the M1, most of which will have the default patches in them, or you can
    dump them to the program via the the patch-dump options on the M1.

    Go to the usual shareware sites for your computer.

    Once done, I have no idea whether your MPC200xl, whatever that might
    be, can store or exchange sysex.

    .. Initialize the M1 to factory default settings: Press INT, CARD, and COMBI
    buttons while switching the power on. (Warning: This

    Korg M1, Page 49

    deletes all internal memory, including all sounds, sequences, drum kits, and
    global settings. This zeros out the M1. If you have any

    common sense, don't do this without a backup.)

    Here's the address to download the Manual.

    Most MIDI equipment from that era have a similsr type reset function. Maybe
    this will help.
