Roland today introduced JP Synth Editor (App Store link) – a free iPad patch editor for the Jupiter-50 and Jupiter-80 synthesizers.
Here’s a video introduction to the JP Synth Editor:
Karma-Lab has released KARMA Kronos Software, a dedicated PC/Mac program for the Korg Kronos .
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.
Here’s what Korg has to say about KARMA Kronos:
KK’s main features include the ability to develop your own Generated Effects (GE’s) or edit the factory GEs into new configurations. Import .MID files and grab phrases directly from the Kronos sequencer, and 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.”
