ONE HOUR FREE PARKING PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO AT 349 W. 34th STREET (with purchase of $100 or more) KORG KARMA Music Workstation with Variable Performance Modeling MIDI EQUIPMENT The KARMA is a totally unique Music Workstation that combines the sounds, effects and sequencing capabilities of Korg's award-winning TRITON with a powerful realtime performance modeling technology called KARMA. The result is a workstation that provides an unprecedented amount of user-interaction that will allow you to reach, what was once considered, unobtainable expressive control of your musical ideas. KARMA stands for Kay Algorithmic Realtime Music Architecture and is the invention of musician/programmer Stephen Kay, who has worked closely with Korg for the past seven years to integrate and further enhance KARMA’s functionality. Based on the notes and chords that are played, KARMA will automatically generate and manipulate phrases and patterns that are impossible to produce with conventional arpeggiators or static pattern playback functions. KARMA can produce anything from unhuman electronic rhythms and melodic textures to acoustic emulations of harp glissandos and finger-picking and provides control over almost 400 musical elements that allow you to interact with the phrases intuitively, and to change them in ways that can range from subtle to extreme. 1217 FEATURES KARMA Function (Variable Performance Modeler) ◆ ◆ ◆ Karma (Kay Algorithmic Realtime Music Architecture) is a patented algorithmic MIDI data generating technology that takes input notes, chords and controller movements to generate complex and sophisticated musical phrases and effects. Phrases and patterns are produced by a GE (Generated Effect). Each GE consist of nearly 400 parameters, such as note data, rhythm development, chord structure and velocity. Of these, 16 parameters are available for realtime control. There are over 1000 types of phrase or pattern available covering a wide range of instruments, playing styles and musical genres: Create swirling cascades of complex interweaving notes, tricked-out techno arpeggios, dense rhythmic and melodic textures, natural sounding glissandos for acoustic instrument programs, guitar strumming and finger-picking simulations, to name a few. And because phrases and patterns can evolve in response to realtime controller movements, your performance will never sound “canned” or static. Realtime Control ◆ 61 note, synth action keyboard, Karma Realtime control knobs 1-8, plus Joystick & latching controller switches. ◆ Alternate Modulation and Effect Dynamic Modulation functions allow you to freely assign modulation to parameters that affect the pitch, filter, amp, EG, LFO, and effects etc. KARMA MW Software ◆ HI Synthesis System ◆ Includes the same HI synthesis system and 32MB of PCM wave ROM with 425 multisamples and 413 drum samples as the classic TRITON. ◆ 640 user Programs and full General Midi level 2 with 256 Programs and 9 Drumkits. 768 user programmable Combi sounds and 64 User Drumkits. ◆ 5 Stereo Insert and 2 Stereo Master Effects, with 102 different effect types available and a Master EQ section. ◆ The 16 Track Sequencer has the same capabilities as the classic TRITON with the added ability to capture the performance of KARMA phrases and patterns. KARMA MW software allows PC and Mac users to access all internal parameters of existing GE's as well as make new ones via their computer. Kamra MW also offers the ability to import SMF phrases and grooves (from any SMF source) as well as TRITON Arpeggiator data and convert them into GE’s. Connectors ◆ Left and right 1/4˝ main outputs plus two 1/4˝ individual outs. Options ◆ Up to two TRITON series PCM expansion boards can be installed, for a total of 64 Mbytes of waveform data.

Korg uses Component Modeling Technology (CMT), to model the components that make up the signal chains of the instruments and how they interact in the original hardware instruments. Currently, Korg has only confirmed that they will be producing virtual instrument versions for three of their synths: the MS-20, Polysix, and Wavestation. Others Korg models are expected to be recreated as well, however. The plug-ins will be available for both Windows and Mac OS (VST and AudioUnit formats). Release is expected in the third quarter of this year (2003). More details will likely be released at the Summer NAMM show in July. Korg has created a special preview section on their web site, currently offering a video summary with an audio track produced with preliminary versions of the Legacy Collection instruments.

And with that heritage, Korg’s ELECTRIBE·A provides the ultimate in analog modeling to give you the richest, most versatile analog-style sounds that are sure to inspire today’s electronic dance music artists- from DJs to remixers to producers. FEATURES ◆ ◆ ◆ ◆ Two tone generators (or parts) based on the analog modeling technology made famous on Korg’s “Prophecy” and “Z1” synthesizers generate the warm, fat tone and rich distortion that make analog sounds stand out. Each of the two parts has access to two VCOs (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) with a choice of Saw, Triangle and Square waverforms, and a VCF (Voltage Controlled Filter) with variable cutoff, resonance and envelope controls. Step Sequencing ◆ ◆ ◆ Oscillators can be further modulated using Ring Modulation, oscillator Sync, or the Decimator effect. Realtime controllable distortion, delay, and chorus/flanger effects are provided for each part. Motion Sequence Function ◆ You can control volume dynamics and filter cutoff of sounds or patterns in realtime using dedicated control knobs. These movements can be recorded into the sequencer allowing you to create continuously evolving variations to the sounds. PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO ◆ The onboard sequencer uses a 16 step-grid interface, with 16 step keys, that allows you to create two-part sequenced patterns using the two onboard analog modeling tone generators. The pad keys can be played as a pitched keyboard in either step or real time. Pad keys light up so you can easily see what rhythm a part is programmed to play. Phrases can be stored as a pattern that can be from one to four measures long and include a chosen knob movement as well as an accent function. ◆ You can create up to 16 songs consisting of multiple patterns. ◆ You can also assign different patterns to each of the sixteen step keys allowing you to quickly switch between different patterns during live performance. ◆ Each step of the pattern can be set to pass or gate the audio input, so rhythm patterns can be programmed to synchronize the gating of the audio in time with the rest of the pattern. ◆ Tap Tempo allows you to synchronize with a turntable. There’s room for creating 256 patterns, each with its own tones programmed as well as the sequences recorded. Inputs and Outputs ◆ Left and right 1/4˝ outputs and a 1/4˝ stereo headphone output. ◆A 1/4˝ audio input allows you to process an external audio source through the resonant filter or effects knobs, and then sync them to your sequence. using the step-grid interface. ◆ MIDI In Out and Thru connectors allow you to use the Electribe units as tone generators.

Korg’s Combo Organs accurately and faithfully re-create that classic sound in two portable models – the single manual CX-3 and dual-manual BX-3. The original Korg CX-3 first went on sale in 1979 followed by its dual-manual sibling, the BX-3. Both went on to become favorites in their own right, and are still widely used. Now, using advanced DSP technology and painstaking attention to sound, touch and style, they have been reborn and vastly improved upon. FEATURES 1230 ◆ ◆ ◆ DSP technology makes it possible to precisely re-create the unique sound that, until now, could only be produced by the real thing. Two different tone-wheel sounds are provided: “VINTAGE” and “CLEAN”. The CX/BX-3’s amazing realism even extends to such details as allowing you to add the “leakage” noise generated by the tone-wheels, and the ability to adjust their overtone levels. The CX/BX-3 feature two sets of nine drawbars that duplicate the sonic characteristics of the originals – including the proper foldback settings and harmonic distortion. Select between the presets and these two sets of “live” drawbars while performing for real organ-playing experience. An EX mode in which all 18 drawbars can be utilized as one extended palette is provided. The resulting harmonics and percussion timbres can be used to create organ sounds never before heard. One of the unique characteristics of a genuine tone-wheel organ is the percussive effect that adds a readily identifiable sound to a note’s attack. The CX/BX3 re-creates that beautifully. The volume, decay rate and harmonic pitch (2nd, 3rd) of the percussion can be adjusted – and the percussion has the proper “multi-triggered-yetmonophonic” characteristic for authentic organ performance. You can even control the amount of key-click heard when you press or release a key, simulating the dirty contacts often found on older instruments. PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO ◆ With 128 programs, the CX/BX-3 are ready to cover a wide range of musical styles including pop, hard rock, jazz, gospel, and rhythm and blues. Detailed drawbar and parameter settings are displayed, and can be easily edited and stored. ◆ Proprietary “REMS” modeling technology is applied to create effects that add further authenticity to the organ sound. The rotary speaker effect, so important to the organ experience, is recreated with total realism. You can even adjust the time required for the rotor and horn to speed up or slow down when switching speeds, or stop the rotation altogether. ◆ ◆ Three types of amp simulation are provided: a traditional rotary speaker sound, a blend of rotary and tube amp sounds, or a preamp-only signal. The amp simulations are dynamic, so your sound naturally evolves from a warm and fat sound to a natural overdrive as your volume increases. In addition, the classic vibrato and chorus settings are provided along with three types of reverb, featuring adjustable time and depth. Attention has been paid to the longneglected aspect of keyboard response speed. The key scanning method used on the CX/BX-3 starts the sound at the first key contact, ensuring a much faster response to your playing. Notes speak more crisply, allowing glissandi, trills and “smears” to be played with total authenticity. EQUIPMENT LEASING AVAILABLE ◆ Not limited to a vintage recreation, the CX/BX-3 is equipped with many advanced MIDI features. Every drawbar, switch and control can be transmitted as MIDI data so your performance can be perfectly captured by a sequencer. The keyboard can be set to transmit key dynamics via MIDI to an external device that can even be layered with the onboard organ sound. ◆ The BX-3 provides all these features in a dual manual model. Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheels for improved MIDI control, additional voice parameters for even more authentic sound reproduction, and a newly-designed “waterfall” keybed for absolutely authentic look and feel have all been added. ◆ Different sets of drawbars, and Chorus/ Vibrato On/Off can be assigned independently to the BX-3’s UPPER and LOWER manuals, just like using a real tone-wheel organ. The single manual CX-3 gives you this functionality via a Split Mode, enabling you to play the single keyboard in two sections. Or you can plug in a second MIDI keyboard to recreate the dual manual playing experience. ◆ Drawbars, vibrato/chorus, and percussion switches are placed in the same location as on the classic tone-wheel organs, demonstrating a total commitment to tradition and playability. The sturdy wood cabinet gives them the proper vintage look, as does theBX-3’s wooden stand. KORG C-3200/C-4500/C-6500 Concert Pianos MIDI EQUIPMENT Korg’s Concert Series piano’s are housed in a stylish cabinet and come with all the essentials, including two types of piano sounds and a variety of valuable features only available from a digital piano. And with their stunningly beautiful sound, they are sure to bring years of musical enjoyment. The C-3200 and C-6500 feature a real weighted hammer action keyboard that responds to every movement of your fingers. Just like a grand piano, the keyboard has a heavier action in the lower register and lighter action as you play upward, giving you the truest piano feel possible. All three models offer a three-position key touch control that lets you select light, medium, or heavy response, so you can choose how the sound will respond to your playing dynamics. A two-track, 14,000 note sequencer lets you record two parts separately (like a backing track and a melody). This can be a convenient function to use when you are practicing or working on a new lesson. ◆ Three separate pedals are provided for damper, soft, and sostenuto, allowing professional-level piano performance. ◆ In addition to the standard temperament, they provide two historical temperaments, Kirnberger and Werckmeister. ◆ They also support half-pedaling, a technique where you only slightly depress the damper or soft pedals for a wide range of tonal possibilities. ◆ With a maximum 64-note polyphony, you’ll have plenty of notes for full piano performance even while using the sustain pedal. ◆ ◆ In addition to two grand piano sounds, they give you a total of nine sounds (six on the C-4500) including electric piano, harpsichord, organ, string, and bass, all with the same quality as on Korg's professional synthesizers. You can choose to split these across the keyboard with different sounds in the high and low ranges, or layer them for rich new sounds. They come with chorus and reverb effects that enable you to further enhance its piano and other sounds. (On the C-3200 the effects can be adjusted in three stages.). Brilliance is also adjustable in three steps to control the brightness of the sound. ◆ MIDI I/O allows connection to a synthesizer or other MIDI-equipped device.

ROLAND V-SYNTH 61-Note Synthesizer MIDI EQUIPMENT The Roland V-Synth is a distinctive and inspiring new instrument that opens up a world of new sounds full of life and motion. The V-Synth's sound engine is designed to be configured in several different ways by choosing from preset Structure types--just like a semi-modular synth. Imagine a synth that combines multiple oscillator technologies with realtime control of a waveform’s pitch, time and formant. Now add user sampling to create entirely new waveforms, powerful COSM filtering, a killer arpeggiator, touchscreen and a host of realtime controllers including the revolutionary TimeTrip Pad. 1250 FEATURES ◆ 61-note synthesizer with velocity and channel aftertouch ◆ 16 part multitimbral and 24 voices of polyphony (depending on available DSP). ◆ Two variable oscillators, each with a choice of three sound generation techniques. TimeTrip Pad ◆ Sound Generator ❑ ❑ ❑ The PCM oscillator uses Roland's VariPhrase technology for independently manipulating the pitch, time and formant of the over 300 preset or user-sampled waveforms. The second oscillator type is Analog Modeling which offers nine traditional waveforms, utilizing Roland's latest modeling technology to deliver sounds that are fat and warm. External Audio Processing is the third oscillator type, which allows any external sound to be used as a synth waveform. oscillator types can be mixed and layered in several ways, or modulated using FM, ring mod and hard sync to create sounds never heard before. Realtime Control ◆ Over dedicated 20 knobs and sliders allow you to grab essential sound parameters quickly and easily. ◆ The large and intuitive touchscreen interface responds to dragging motions, allowing you to access more detailed parameters – Imagine setting an envelope curve just by sliding your finger on the screen. ◆ ◆ All ◆ Powerful COSM processing including filter modeling, guitar amp modeling, resonator and Side Band Filter. The TimeTrip Pad is an innovative controller that lets you adjust the time parameter of a waveform in real time—without affecting pitch or formant—simply by dragging your finger along the pad. You can speed up a waveform, slow it down, or freeze it at any point. The Twin D Beam controllers provide an expressive interface for controlling parameters in realtime Programmable Arpeggiator ◆ Programmable arpeggiator provides additional rhythmic and timbral controls. It allows you to create complex riffs from a single note or chord, or to create timbral changes that add rhythmic motion to a sound. Effects Global reverb, chorus and multi-effects enhance the sonic palette even further.
