The KARMA technology that has been available for Korg workstations for some time has now been released as a standalone software package designed specifically to work with Yamaha Motif XS and XF workstations too.
This brings their patented algorithmic music technology and interactive groove generation and arranger-like capabilities to a whole new audience.
KARMA Motif also debuts the newest, most advanced, third-generation KARMA 3.0 technology with a host of new features including:
KARMA Motif's Performances use the Motif's Song/Mixing mode, where each of the 64 songs is a complete, 16 part multi-track KARMA algorithmic music groove. Each Performance features six KARMA Modules, with a left hand and right hand zone for controlling KARMA and soloing on top of it, and eight fully voiced and completely different scenes. The Motif's arps are also integrated in each Performance as additional elements that can be triggered via the Intelligent Chord Trigger Transposition features. And since you are already in Song Mode, you're just one step away from recording your KARMA-fied musical performances into the Motif's sequencer - or you can route the output to any DAW for external sequencing. Furthermore, a KARMA Performance can call up any Motif Voice, Performance, Song, Pattern, or Master slot when loading, so that KARMA can be used in any of the Motif's modes.
Available now at $199.
Cool! Use Karma on my Korg Karma and OASYS workstations and it's incredible. This release is even more advanced and will serve the Motifs very well.

This is (IMO) the most amazing and inspirational songwriting tool. It is light years ahead of the most advanced arranger available today. And it's a great to use live. It will surely make the Motif line an even better workstation. Stephen Kay (Karma Technology creator) is a genius.
