Karma-Lab has released Catalyst Volume 1 – Creativity Xplosion!, a new collection of 32 fully KARMA-fied combis for the Korg OASYS ($32).
The first volume in their new Catalyst Series, this collection aims to catalyze your creativity with a burst of inspirational grooves suitable for live playing, jamming, film cues and song production. Programmed by Eric J. Sawyer and KARMA Developer Stephen Kay, the set represents hundreds of hours of work over the last year, yet is reasonably priced at only $1 per combi.
Each combi is composed of a full 4 KARMA Modules and 8 fully-voiced scenes for maximum variability, featuring extensive real-time control via the KARMA Realtime Controls (8 sliders, 8 switches) and the other controllers (joystick, ribbon, vector joystick, 8 RT knobs and 2 switches over joystick). Furthermore, each combi is fully and meticulously documented in the accompanying 69 page User¹s Guide. The set includes grooves and sonic textures in a wide variety of styles, ranging from a mixture of Hip-Hop, Dance, Trance & Techno categories to Ambient, Jazz, Classical, New-Age & World/Ethnic categories.
