New Software Increases OASYS Power


Karma-Lab has released KARMA Oasys Software, a dedicated PC/Mac program for the Korg OASYS.
Created by KARMA developer Stephen Kay, KO allows you to go deeper into the world of the KARMA function, in ways that are not possible on the OASYS alone. Karma-Lab say that, whether you're creating sounds from scratch or using the factory sounds, KO's visual controls and displays provide the ultimate insight and learning tool for anyone who wants to better understand the KARMA Function.
The program runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher (compatible with 10.5 Leopard), and on Windows XP, with an update planned for Vista in early 2008.
KO's main features include the ability to develop your own Generated Effects (GE's) for unlimited musical possibilities, or edit the factory GEs into new configurations. Import .MID files and grab phrases directly from the OASYS sequencer, and instantly turn them into GEs. Then, upload (via SysEx) your new GE's to the OASYS and take them on the road.
KARMA Oasys also provides some additional features not found in the keyboard, such as 32 Scenes per Module per Performance (instead of 8), 16 Chord Trigger Buttons (Pads) per Performance instead of 8, the ability to give each Module and Scene a descriptive name, 6 Modules in KO (instead of just 4), and more. These features cannot be imported into the OASYS, but are available while using the software. And for the truly adventurous, you can operate KO as an additional 6 modules at the same time as using the 4 modules of the internal KARMA Function in the OASYS, for up to 10 modules – just like having two and a half OASYS's at once.
