Karma-Lab introduces Reincarnated – Groove Nirvana, a new set of 32 exciting and inspiring KARMA-fied combis for the Korg Kronos and Korg OASYS. Priced at only US$32, the sound set includes grooves and sonic textures in a wide variety of styles, ranging from a mixture of Hip-Hop, Dance, Electronica, Trance & Techno categories to Ambient, Jazz, New-Age, Film Score, and World/Ethnic categories. Previously released for the M3 and M50, the set has now been brought to the Kronos and OASYS as well, taking advantage of the multiple synth engines and increased polyphony and effects capabilities.
Korg is pleased to announce the release of system version 1.3 for Korg’s flagship OASYS synthesizer, delivering the next level of the sound-creating and performance potential of this acclaimed instrument.
Korg has announced Operating System Version 1.2 for the OASYS Open Architecture Synthesis Studio. In addition to new features and enhancements, it also offers a demo version of the LAC-1 Legacy Analog Collection containing the latest OASYS Expansion Instruments (EXi).
Korg has announced OASYS software version 1.10, which includes the first OASYS Expansion Instrument (EXi) update, the STR-1 Plucked String. The STR-1 represents an advancement in physical modeling, building on over a decade of Korgs research with new innovations exclusive to OASYS. This new OS also adds support for up to 2 GB of memory, as well as some new enhancements to the OASYS voice architecture.
Korg USA and Karma Lab have posted a Flash-based OASYS Virtual GUI, an online demo that allows users to explore a virtual replica of the graphic user interface of the Korg OASYS Open Architecture Synthesis Studio. This full-blown simulator provides an interactive, in-depth tour of the OASYS interface in a way that gives a true feel for the logic, layout and capabilities of OASYS. It was co-developed by Karma developer Stephen Kay and avid OASYS enthusiast Bob VanDamme, in partnership with KORG USA.
OASYS is built around our new flagship PCM-based engine, which we call the HD-1 High Definition Synthesizer. Driven by an exacting, robust and detail-rich voice architecture, the sound of the HD-1 possesses an amazing clarity and presence; a high end that is crystal clear, but never harsh; a detailed and accurate sound that is smooth and rich across the entire audio spectrum.
Its not officially from Korg but on several websites we found the specs from the new Korg workstation the Oasis.
Rumors or true, we hope for the last option, but we can’t wait for Korg when they officially will announce the specs from this synth.
We found on the internet pics of the new Korg Synth.
On the Korg website you will see a small flash intro with reference to the new synth launched 20th January ( Winter NAMM )
Stay tuned !
UPDATE: The name of this new workstation is probably Oasis or Oasis2.
The Oasis was a synth from Korg in the mid-90s, but never got released.
UPDATE 2: A products page with all the specs is added to our database
