|Volume 2 - Classic Synths
For the Karma Classic Synths soundbank, we have recreated the popular
sound of vintage analog and digital synthesizers adding many new real
time control features found on the Karma. The first twenty one programs
are all monophonic bass & lead sounds emulating such Classic Synths as
the Mini Moog, Prophet-5 and Oberheim OB8. Many of the bass and leads
have different types of modulation programmed into the Karma controllers.
Also, engaging the Karma Function will give you a cool rhythmic pulse to
The remaining 100+ programs are made up of synth brasses, pads & strings,
assorted hits & bits, more basses & leads and "rhythmic grooves" using
the Karma's GE's. Many grooves have a "Sample & Hold" type of sound that
was very common in the style of the 60's and 70's analog synths. The type
of sound used by groups like "Emerson, Lake & Palmer" and "Kraftwerk".
Other grooves are totally unique to the Karma and have a very 21st
century sound. Many of these grooves can be used as the foundation to
your rhythm tracks. Sync them to your drum machine tracks and a whole new
world of rhythm textures open up.
The combinations feature many "splits & layered sounds" as well as many
more "rhythmic grooves". Usually the split point can be found at middle
C, although there are many combos that have multi splits over a several
octave range. All combos include the Karma GE's rhythmic feature which
will enable you to create an entire track from one combo.
The Karma gives you the best of both worlds with a great vintage synth
sound along with the ultimate control over the programs and combos that
your working with.
