Westfield, NJ, September 26, 2011 -- Karma-Lab has released KARMA Kronos Software, a dedicated  PC/Mac program for the Korg Kronos (US $169). Designed by KARMA Developer Stephen Kay, KARMA Kronos (KK) allows you to go deeper into the world of the KARMA algorithmic music function, in ways that are not possible on the Kronos alone. Whether you're creating  sounds from scratch or using the factory sounds, KK's visual controls and graphical displays provide the ultimate insight and learning tool for anyone who wants to better understand the KARMA Function.

KK's main features include the ability to develop your own Generated Effects (GE's) for unlimited  musical  possibilities, or edit the factory GEs into new configurations. Import .MID  files and grab phrases directly from the Kronos sequencer, and instantly turn them into GEs, with all real-time controls assigned for instant variability. Then, upload the new GE's to the Kronos's 1536 User GE locations and take them  on the road.


Rich Formidoni, Korg Technology Product Manager, says, “Being able to create and edit your own GEs greatly expands the potential of KARMA within the Kronos Music Workstation, making KARMA Kronos a  must-have accessory.”



KARMA Kronos  also provides some additional  features not found in the keyboard, such as 32  Scenes per Module per  Performance (instead of 8), 16 Chord Trigger Buttons  (Pads) per  Performance instead of 8, the ability to give each Module and Scene a   descriptive name, 6 individual KARMA Modules (instead of just 4), and  more.  These features cannot be imported into the Kronos, but are  available while using  the software. And for the truly adventurous, you  can operate KK as an additional  6 modules at the same time as using the  4 modules of the internal KARMA Function  in the Kronos, for up to 10  modules – it’s like having the KARMA of two and a  half Kronos at once!


The  program runs on  Windows XP/Vista/Win7 and Mac OS X. And in keeping  with Karma-Lab's usual  policy, a discount on the purchase price is  provided to previous customers who  have purchased KARMA software for  other keyboards in the past.
