WNAMM08:Oasys OS 1.3 Gets You Horny

We’ve all poked fun at the opulence of Korg’s monster flagship synth workstation OASYS and it’s mighty price tag, but the truth is it’s an amazing piece of work and secretly we’d all love one . People who can afford it, love it and unsurprisingly, as it packs a ton of synthesis power under the hood. Thing is, the system continues to be developed and this latest OS 1.3 proves that there’s still much that can be done. As well as the new OS, there’s a new set of Brass and woodwind samples to be loaded, Karma 2.1 – which is a significant upgrade, and numerous UI and navigational improvements. There’s also a working demo of a whole new FM synthesis engine in the form of the EX/MOD 7 Waveshaping VPM synthesizer - this can be unlocked for $249 at Korguser.net. The OASYS OS V 1.3 can be purchased for $149 at Korguser.net, although remember, you will need an actual Korg OASYS to make the most of it, unless you want to tape the receipt to your forehead look important – although you wont, you’ll just look like a chump.

Very nice and "clear" sounding.

What a superb sound. ONLY Korg can achieve this!

Learn the termo, weirdo; it's not clear sounding, it's high-fidelic...slap me some skin.

Okay, so usually intelligence is a necessary condition for making enough money to be able to afford to spend some of it on this fancy toy. That's what's confusing me-if one is intelligent HOW can one see value in this expensive toy? Is this just targeting the inherently-rich, youth market?

I wonder if Korg has added way to do legato with this high end mega-sampler. Try playing trills with brass and woodwind samples- yuck. For all that money you would hope so. The new Yamaha Motif XS has nice articulations and legato now.

Someone can fix this video? Is it possible that anyone has realized that stops at about 3 minutes?

The MOD-7 seems really cool. I hope they fix this video.

As for the value of Oasys... well, they're about $8500 in Canada.. If you add up what you'd pay for an 88 note high end workstation, a B3 simulator, several high quality VA synths, an FM synth, a hard disk recorder, then consider the convenience of the integration, and the stability of the OS, it might make sense to those who can afford it. I can't afford one of these, but I DO love how it sounds for sure.

Video still isn't fixed as of August 21 2008! Would love to hear the rest of it but it freezes up then resets after 3 minutes. Help? Somehow 8 months later I don't think they're gonna do squat to fix it : |
