Karma-Lab has announced the release on DVD of its House 101 Combi Creation Series, a comprehensive Korg M3 training program. The two-DVD set contains 7 hours of in-depth video instruction, with 45 separate chapters – each a self-contained "lesson" you can work through at your own speed. Here's the details that Karma Lab has supplied:
Using Korg's M3 Editor software, KARMA Sound Set Programmer Scott Raposa and KARMA Developer Stephen Kay start with a blank slate (an initialized combi) and take you step-by-step through the process of completing "House 101" – a completely finished KARMA-fied combi. Within this "real-world" context, you'll be introduced to nearly all facets of the M3, from selecting and zoning programs, adding and configuring effects, assigning KARMA features to configuring all the sliders and left-hand controllers. With an easy to understand, step-by-step presentation format, they then teach you how to edit the combi to your liking, record it in the sequencer, and create a stereo WAVE file from it.
Topics covered in this thorough series include:
  • Finding your way around the M3 Editor
  • Saving and loading M3 Editor files; transmitting and receiving data
  • Selecting a different GE for a KARMA module to replace an existing GE
  • Changing Programs on Timbres
  • Changing Key Zones, setting up splits, layering timbres
  • Using Timbre parameters, such as EQ, Transpose, Portamento
  • Using Tone Adjust to modify the sound of individual programs in a combi
  • Assigning Effects, chaining them and routing them
  • Assigning KARMA Parameters to the Master Layer
  • Understanding esoteric KARMA features such as Melodic Repeat and Auto-Bending
  • Modifying Scenes more to your personal taste
  • Copying Scenes from one to another
  • Putting the 8 Scenes into a completely different order
  • Assigning chords to the pads and keeping parts from transposing up or down too far
  • Setting up the Drum Track in a combi, and having it play in only certain KARMA scenes
  • Setting up the X-Y Mode to mix the KARMA Modules in and out with your fingers
  • Configuring the LH controllers such as joystick, ribbon, SW1 and SW2
  • Configuring the eight Real-Time Sound Control Sliders to modify sounds and effects
  • Having only certain timbres respond to various controllers
  • The easiest way to record a song with your completed combi and turn it into a WAVE file
