About these demos
These .mp3 audio demos are short, real-time performances from the 128 new LAC-1 Programs, utilizing the KARMA function. It should be noted that KARMA has the ability to modify certain program attributes when it is activated, such as changing the attack, decay, filter cutoff, EG intensity, effect levels - virtually anything that can be controlled with a CC. Therefore, some of these programs sound quite different from the way they play when KARMA is off - it's almost like getting additional programs as part of the deal.
