The first volume in their new Catalyst Series, this collection aims to catalyze your creativity with a burst of inspirational grooves suitable for live playing, jamming, film cues and song production. Programmed by Eric J. Sawyer and KARMA Developer Stephen Kay, the set represents hundreds of hours of work over the last year, yet is reasonably priced at only $1 per combi.
Catalyst Volume 1 was originally released for Korg's mothership OASYS several months ago, and Eric and Stephen have made these KARMA-fied M3/M50 combis sound virtually identical to the OASYS versions - and if you know anything about the OASYS, that's a good thing! In addition, the M3/M50's Drum Track (while stored off by default) has been programmed to add an additional complimentary percussion or drum element in every combi.
Each combi is composed of a full 4 KARMA Modules and 8 fully-voiced scenes for maximum variability, featuring extensive real-time control via the KARMA Realtime Controls (8 sliders, 8 switches) and the other controllers (joystick, ribbon, vector joystick, 8 RT sliders/knobs, ribbon and 2 switches over joystick). Furthermore, each combi is fully and meticulously documented in the accompanying 69 page User's Guide. The set includes grooves and sonic textures in a wide variety of styles, ranging from a mixture of Hip-Hop, Dance, Trance & Techno categories to Ambient, Jazz, Classical, New-Age & World/Ethnic categories.
