|Volume 3 - Hip Hop/R&B Mix
Karma Vol #3 is heavy on drum beats and rhythms. The programs have many patches where you trigger a drum beat by pressing one note on the keyboard and then use the Karma's real time controls to do everything from trigger drum fills to control velocity, drum clusters and transpose samples. Changing from scene one to scene two usually triggers a new beat, so you get two different beats in each program.
The programs include many other sounds that will fit right in with Hip Hop, R&B and Funk tracks. Rhodes Pianos, B3 Organs, Sub Basses and Spacy Leads, Funk Guitars, Orchestra Hits and Strings, Brass & Pads.
The combos include complex poly rhythms that were created using the Karma four GE's. Many combos have a rhythm section consisting of drums, bass and guitar all using separate GE's playing below middle C. Above middle C includes standard instruments like Keyboards, Strings, Leads and Orchestra Hits that you can use to play along with the rhythm sections. This one man band approach is perfect for jamming with the Karma.
In many combos Kid Nepro used the four GE's to trigger four separate drum beats. On top of that included is a drum kit or percussion samples that you can play along with. The Karma real time controls are then added to mix and fade the separate beats in and out. This technique turns the Karma into the ultimate beat box. There are also many combos where you trigger the drum beat by hitting the first chord function button or low C on the Karma keyboard. On top of that are splits and layers across the keyboard that you can use to play over the drum beat. Another type of one man band approach.
There are many different ways that one can program the Karma. No one way is the correct way. It's a very deep instrument. Many techniques that we have learned through years of programming synthesizers and drum machines were used in putting this soundbank together. We know you will enjoy the results.
