A message from Stephen Kay, developer of the KARMA Technology used in the Kronos, OASYS and the M3, and now the KARMA M50 Software for the Korg M50:

"While Korg's affordable M50 Workstation contains many great features, it doesn't have the KARMA Technology of its bigger brothers, the Kronos, OASYS and the M3. KARMA M50 Software provides you with the same second generation KARMA Technology contained in the flagship Kronos, OASYS and M3 Workstations, in Mac/PC form. Using it with an M50 gives you all of the interactive KARMA features and grooves of the M3. If you've ever lusted after the Kronos, OASYS or the M3 but couldn't afford one, then this could be the combination for you: the Korg M50 + KARMA M50 Software!

This page will be used to support and promote the M50 (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 M50. Also, visit Korg USA's M50 Page for the complete specs, more demos, and more information."

Video Demos/Tours/Tutorials

Karma-Lab YouTube
Karma-Lab YouTube Channel: M3 Playlist

See/hear musical performances, demos, guided tours, tutorials and more, on KARMA-related keyboard products including the Korg Kronos, M3, OASYS, and Karma, and the Yamaha Motif XF and Motif series.

While we don't have any M50 videos, everything you see on the M3 is capable of being performed with the M50 using the KARMA M50 Software, since the M50 has the exact same sound engine as the M3.

Flash-Based Media Player: M3 Channel

If your device is capable of using Flash, you may still access our Flash-based Media Player. Most of the video content has been moved to our YouTube Channel, but there may be additional Audio and/or Video material not available on YouTube.

KARMA for other synths?

KARMA is available as a built-in feature on several other Korg synths, including the Kronos, M3, 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.
