Karma-Lab has introduced Catalyst Volume 1 – Creativity Xplosion!, which they describe as a new set of 32 exciting and inspiring KARMA-fied combis for the Korg Kronos. They tell us that the sound set includes grooves, backing tracks and sonic textures in a wide variety of styles, ranging from a mixture of Hip-Hop, Dance, Electronica, Trance & Techno categories to Ambient, Jazz, New-Age, Film Score, and World/Ethnic categories.
Rich Formidoni, Korg Technology Product Manager, told Sonic State, "The Catalyst collection demonstrates exactly how much KARMA can inspire. Every one of these combis tells a huge and evolving story."
Here's more details from Karma-Lab:
As is usual for Karma-Lab combis, Catalyst Vol. 1 pushes the KARMA function to the absolute limit. Each combi is composed of 4 complete KARMA Modules and 8 fully-voiced scenes for maximum variability, featuring extensive control via the KARMA Realtime Controls (8 sliders, 8 switches) and the other controllers (joystick, ribbon, vector joystick, 8 RT sliders/knobs, and 2 switches over joystick). In addition, the Kronos's Drum Track has been programmed to add an additional complimentary percussion or drum element in every combi.
Programmed by Eric. J. Sawyer and KARMA developer Stephen Kay, the set represents hundreds of hours of work yet is priced at only $1 per combi. Catalyst includes a 71-page User's Guide that provides meticulous documentation on each combi in addition to hundreds of tips and tricks on how to get the most out of each Performance.
