KORG monomania [monotribe and KP3 plaing]

October 10, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

And as most of you know I am not fully skilled in Japanese so I need to rely on that Google does its job right:

Tetara tinkering, it had long been forgotten about time, Bassari off to later. Well maybe not connected;;
^ ^ Could not become a song;

Some additional info on the KP3:

The sampling side of the KP3 is easy to figure out. Four samples (or phrases, because the KP3 is really of the ‘phrase-sampler’ ilk, rather than a traditional sampler) can be stored. The sampling time is 16 beats at 74 bpm—suggesting that the maximum sample time is about 13.2 seconds for each pad at 16-bit, 48kHz stereo. You can sample at 74 bpm or higher at beat values of 1, 2, 4, 8 or 16 per measure. Each sample can be a continuous loop or a one shot sample. Recording a sample is easily done by pressing “sampling” and then the pad you want to record to. It’s that easy. The only draw back for some will be the fact that it only has RCA-style jacks for all incoming and outgoing audio.

Now the for best part: the effects! This section is incredibly intuitive because of the large centrally located X/Y touch pad. Effects are selected with a knob (there are 128 programs to choose from). The types of effects offered vary widely and can be used for a range of creative possibilities. From grain shifters, slicers, LFO modulation, echo, reverb, flanger, delay, filters to various combinations. Eight memory locations are provided above the touch pad to store your favorites, along with any pad motion recording, pad hold status and position, plus values for fx depth and fx release. Also, another attractive point of the KP3 is its ability to apply effects to the input of the unit, with or without samples playing back, effectively using it as a real-time effects processor. As this device begs to be used live, it does a great job at sampling the input or re-sampling the output on the fly. Another nice extra is the ability of the KP3 to provide a tap tempo and it has auto-BPM detection to beat-sync its tempo to the input (sometimes the sync is sloppy but you can help it by tapping the tap tempo button, indicating to the KP3 where the beat is). This tempo can be output in MIDI to clock other devices, as well as any button you push or activity on the touch pad can transmit/receive MIDI for the option to record and playback your performances in a sequencer.

Modular first steps, please listen with headphones.
Sample taken from an FM radio with the A-112 Sampler module.
Dual VCA gated by A-149-1 (source of uncertainty) for a crazy stereo pattern.
Nothing special, just testing and messing around.
