Korg has announced the release of an upgrade for its flagship OASYS workstation synthesizer.
System version 1.3 expands the sound-creation and performance-enhancing potential of OASYS via a host of new features, from practical tweaks to seriously cool new functions.
Here’s what they have to say in their own words…
KARMA 2.1 has arrived, adding increased functionality and flexibility, not least support for 12 banks of 128 User GE’s (for a total of 1,536), in addition to the 2,048 internal presets. The other user-friendly changes ushered in by OASYS 1.3 include:
  • Scene Changes can now be quantized/delayed to an interval in the range of a 16th note triplet, up to four measures, allowing a larger timing value to be entered and thus greater advance selection.
  • KARMA patterns can now be triggered in perfect time, even at the fastest tempos, thanks to the introduction of adjustable Quantize Windows.
  • Custom Note Maps can now be copied between Programs, Combis and Songs, for a more streamlined workflow.
  • EXs expansion sample sets can now be loaded and unloaded without restarting OASYS.
  • Each EXi expansion instrument in a dual Program can now be transposed separately, giving greater sonic flexibility.
  • All Step Sequencers now provide separate smoothing parameters for attack and decay, allowing more complex tonal changes.
  • User Sampling RAM capacity has been expanded, when using EXs-1 and EXs-2 expansion sample pack PCM data, thanks to a new lossless compression method.
A demo version of the new Exi MOD-7 Waveshaping VPM synth, which takes classic forms into uncharted territories of cutting-edge sound generation, is also included with the OASYS 1.3 upgrade. In addition, an optional EXs-3 Brass & Woodwinds Expansion Sample Library is now available, providing over 700MB of expressive, natural-sounding instruments.
