Karma Lab Updates With Virtual MIDI Technology

Now integrates with sequencer      24/02/04
Karma Lab has released an update to both KARMA MW and KARMA Triton, the PC/Mac-based software applications that allow owners of Korg's Karma and TRITON series keyboards to generate phrases, grooves and other musical effects that can be altered and randomized in real-time. The new version (1.2.1), a free download for existing users, is bundled with a new Virtual MIDI Device (VMD) giving Windows users the ability to instantly integrate the KARMA software with any MIDI-enabled software synth, sampler, or sequencer. In addition to playing KARMA's grooves, arpeggios, and other musical patterns, owners of these keyboards can now take advantage of KARMA's ability to send MIDI directly to any Windows-based soft synths and samplers. For example, use your favorite KARMA Generated Effects (GE's) to create and manipulate techno arpeggios in Project5, bass lines in Reason, or spectacular pad effects in Kontakt ­ to name a few. Alternatively, route KARMA's MIDI output directly to Sonar, Cubase, or any other sequencer for further slicing, dicing, and looping. The KARMA's VMD behaves just like any other MIDI device which means you can even MIDI clock-sync the KARMA application to applications such as Live. KARMA MW and KARMA Triton applications require that a Korg Karma or Korg TRITON be connected to your PC/Mac. However, the introduction of Karma Lab¹s Virtual MIDI technology represents an important milestone in the company's progress towards a universal KARMA application. Pricing and Availability
KARMA MW 1.2.1 and KARMA Triton 1.2.1 are available as free updates for existing users and can be downloaded at the company's website. New users can purchase KARMA MW directly from Karma Lab for US $149, and KARMA Triton for US $199. All KARMA software can be downloaded on-line (world-wide), or ordered on CD (USA).
