A message from Stephen Kay, developer of the KARMA Technology used in the OASYS and the new Korg M3:

"The M3 incorporates the same second generation KARMA Technology as the flagship OASYS. If you've ever lusted after the OASYS, or wished for a Karma Workstation successor with all the features of its larger Triton brothers (sampling, ribbon, touch screen) - this could be the keyboard for you!

This page will be used to support and promote the M3 (both in relation to KARMA Technology, and just in general.) So bookmark it and check frequently in the coming weeks and months for all sorts of information about the M3. Also, visit Korg USA's M3 Page for the complete specs, more demos, and more information."

KARMA for other synths?

KARMA is available as a built-in feature on several other Korg synths, including the Kronos, the OASYS, and the Karma Workstation. There are also PC/Mac software versions available for the Triton Series, and the M50, which add KARMA features to keyboards that do not have them. In addition, there is the KARMA Motif Software that supports six different Yamaha instruments. Follow the links below for more information.
