VOICE modules manages up to 64 voices polyphony based on Korg AI2 16 bits synthesis.
STRUCTURE A basic patch is composed 1 or 2 PCM samples (oscillators) that can be set in 3 different manners:
- single: 1 oscillator per sound
- double: 2 oscillators per sound
- drums: special kit mode for drumset
Just a few oscillator parameters can be set including: volume, pitch tuning and stereo panning.
PCM WAVETABLE a 18 Mb ROM memory contains 867 PCM waves of bread and butters of any kind of acoustic sounds, also compliant to GS-GM protocol.
The wavetable is
organized into 2 main categories:
- 563 PCM multi-sampled acoustics samples
- 304 PCM drum percussions.
HEAR GS/GM file "Last Ninja 2"
PERFORMANCE system handles 16 parts with individual parameters:
monophonic mode with variable portamento glide speed
Midi channel assign
split zone assign
- pitch tune
- panning position.
FILTER the VDF is a 4-poles non-resonant digital filter- cutoff can be assigned to velocity, knobs, aftertouch or pitchbender or by key scaling function.
LFO up to 3 delayed modulators (shapes: triangle, saw-up, saw-down, random and square) with variable depth and special progressive fade IN:
- LFO 1 to amplitude
- LFO 2 to pitch
- LFO 3 to filter.
ENVELOPE 3 EGs:
- EG1 VDA amplitude: 4 segments
- EG2 VDF filter: 4 segments
- EG3 Pitch: 4 segments
- RAM 100 sound programs
TECH: ROM contains factory presets with internal recall.
ARPEGGIATOR 20 patterns ready-to-go with 4 edit controls:
Internal clock tempo range from 40 to 240 BPM or slaved to external Midi sync.
EFFECTS double digital DSP in serial or 6 parallel modes:
- 48 algorithms
728 fully editable presets e.g reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, frequency exciter, enhancer, parametric EQ, simulated resonance, distortion, phaser, rotary and tremolo.
N5 61 keys and a 12 MB wavetable:it misses the expanded piano wavetable (35 samples). After some months Korg released an "EX" version with extended sample set form Trinity and SG ProX VIDEO
N1 88 weight keys and 18 Mb wavetable ROM.
