Korg offers downloadable versions of popular software synths
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-11-19)
New software downloads enable users to “mix and match” their favorite Korg software synthesizers.
Starting in 2004, Korg began introducing software creations of their most coveted synthesizers, as various titles of their Legacy Collection series. Now, each of those titles is available as a separate download at a considerable savings. With access to the original circuit diagrams and sound programming, Korg has recreated these coveted classics in a way that is completely faithful to the original model.
Each soft synth utilizes Korg’s proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology) to perfectly reproduce the sound and response of the original. CMT also reproduces the character and response curve of each parameter, for results that are completely faithful to the original model.
Now available for download are software recreations of the following classic Korg synths:
M1 Music Workstation - www.korg.com/LegacyM1
Mono/Poly - www.korg.com/LegacyMonoPoly
Wavestation - www.korg.com/LegacyWAVESTATION
Polysix - www.korg.com/LegacyPolysix
MS-20 - www.korg.com/LegacyMS20
Also available for download is the MDE-X Effects Suite, at www.korg.com/LegacyMDEX . Originally part of the first ,b>Korg Legacy Collection, this suite provides 19 high-quality effects derived from Korg’s digital recorders, workstations and synthesizers, and is designed to run as a stand-alone program or as a VST, AU or RTAS Plug-in, for use with nearly any DAW.
As a bonus, a free Legacy Cell download is also available for those who purchase both the MS-20 and Polysix, along with the MDE-X Effects Suite. Legacy Cell enables combinations of the MS-20 and Polysix synthesizers to be blended with two insert effects and two master effects, and used as a single software synthesizer that provides new sounds and textures.
All synths operate as stand-alone or VST/AU/RTAS plug-in instruments and are Mac® (including MacIntel) and Windows compatible. Users can pick one, grab all their favorites, or download the entire collection at a special price. Free trial downloads and details can be found at www.korg.com. All downloads are available for purchase at www.korguser.net.
