Korg Karma 61 Workstation - Used

Type: Used
Condition: Good

Korg Karma Workstation Keyboard.  Tip of the tempo knob is broken off, so it is still turnable but certainly more difficult to adjust on the fly.

KARMA stands for Kay's Algorithmic Real-time Music Architecture

61 Keys - 3.5" Disk Drive - 200,000-note, 16-track sequencer, 62 Note Polyphony

Seven Years in the Making
At Korg they're always dreaming up innovative ways to make keyboards more expressive, more powerful, more musical, and when we first learned about a brand new technology called KARMA, they knew they'd found one. Seven years after assembling a global team of skilled engineers, programmers, and musicians, the Karma Music Workstation brings new music-making possibilities to life.

To start, its synth and effects engines are identical to Triton's - so you know how great it sounds. It's also compatible with Triton sound data and supports the same user-installable PCM and MOSS expansion options so your sound palette can grow. Plus, the Karma Music Workstation provides the same feature-packed 16-track sequencer that has made the Korg Triton the leader in music workstations. So what makes this new keyboard so special?

It's KARMA, Korg's revolutionary technology that generates amazing phrases, grooves, and other musical effects that can be altered and randomized in real-time. With a bank of knobs and switches, you control elements like rhythmic complexity, harmony, melodic repeat, phrasing, panning...even the synth's sound and effects.

KARMA gives you the power to play impossible, interweaving cascades of notes, techno arpeggios and effects, dense rhythmic and melodic textures, natural-sounding glissandos, intricate fingerpicking and guitar strumming, swooping portamento, and pitch bend moves to name but a few. The only limiting factor is your imagination.

Karma like this only comes around once every 7 years. Fortunately for you, the wait is over.
