Korg Cliphit – What will you clip and play?

September 5, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Korg has introduced Cliphit– a new system that lets you turn anything into an electronic drumkit.

Korg says that Cliphit is designed for ‘casual playing’. That means some ‘pro’ features, like MIDI out, are left out.

Instead, Cliphit focuses on fun, letting you clip sensors to just about anything, plug them into the battery-powered sound module and play electronic percussion in a unique way. 

To use Cliphit, you attach the clips, with their internal sensors, to a magazine, desk, or almost any surface, transforming it into a snare, hi-hat, or cymbal. You can also attach these clips to practice pads. And you can use them to play drums or programmed EFX sounds, which include things like dog sounds, cat sounds and hand clapping.

The all new KORG electribe MUSIC PRODUCTION STATION

September 4, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

Empowering musicians to compose in a creative and influential way, the new Electribe has evolved to include such features as polyphonic synth playback, sixteen freely-assignable parts, and compatibility with Ableton Live. Featuring sixteen back- lit Trigger pads and an intuitive X/Y Touch pad, the new Electribe is easy enough for a beginner to understand, yet sophisticated enough to satisfy even the most experienced performers. Due to its sleek, compact design and battery power (optional AC adapter available), users can easily compose and play any style of electronic music, no matter where they are. In addition to making some of the world’s most popular synthesizers, Korg has a long history of captivating electronic dance musicians. From the revolutionary KAOSS line, to the Legacy virtual instruments, to the original Electribe Music Production Stations, Korg has given producers the tools they need to make music that inspires.

The new Electribe’s synthesis includes 409 waveforms, covering analog modeling and sample playback. The advanced analog modeling is distilled from the KingKORG synthesizer, and includes filters that model those of classic analog synthesizers. The synth engine is capable of unison, sync, ring modulation, cross modulation, and much more. The PCM portion provides numerous rhythmic samples, but also includes some multi-samples for keyboard input. Collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, and Prime Loops are also included in the Electribe.

The Electribe’s evolved step sequencer allows the player to create patterns while receiving visual feedback and instantly hearing the set changes. The pads can function as a chromatic keyboard for real-time input, or as a traditional step sequencer. The “Motion Sequence” function records knob and button operations, and plays them back to create smooth or stepped modulation and other effects. The X/Y Touch pad has several functions, such as a Kaossilator-style “Touch Scale,” which plays a scale when the player slides a finger across the pad. It can also control effects and modulation sources. Effects such as compression and overdrive are provided for each part, allowing each of the sixteen available parts to have their own sonic signature. Groove templates can also be specified for each part. Live performance is more intuitive than ever, due to the “Pattern Set” function which allows the player to instantly switch patterns by pressing the Trigger pads. 

Based on a partnership with Ableton, the new Electribe features the ability to export Ableton Live clips, enabling a direct link between Electribe production and one of the world’s most popular DAWs. In addition to MIDI IN/OUT, Sync IN/OUT jacks are provided, allowing synchronized performances with the Volca series, Monotribe, or MS-20 Mini. This newest edition to the Korg family will certainly impress even the most profound musicians.”

KORG PROPHECY – Overview / Programming / Demo

August 28, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is a Demonstration and Overview of the “Great” Korg Prophecy. The Korg Prophecy is a fantastic sounding synthesizer with great potential. All you need is a good sound that you know well, and familiarity with this synthesizer’s parameters.

Digital does analog! The Prophecy was among one of the first synthesizers to lead a revolution started in the mid-nineties by synthesizer makers to satisfy a growing segment of the market that was lusting after old-school vintage equipment in the pursuit of making electronica-style music, by providing a state-of-the-art retro synthesizer that could sound like a classic analog.

The Prophecy Solo Synthesizer was unveiled in 1995, and was a purely monophonic solo/lead synthesizer. It employed DSP synthesis first developed for the Korg OASYS synthesizer, with algorithms for producing realistic analog timbres, VPM (Variable Phase Modulation) tones similar to FM synthesis, and physically modeled brass, reed, and plucked string instruments. At your finger tips were tons of real-time control over traditional analog editing parameters like filter cutoff and resonance, envelopes and the arpeggiator. It had a pitch wheel, a mod wheel, an expressive dual action ribbon wheel, six effects processors and more!
