Product Description

Introducing the Korg Legacy Collection -- Digital Edition; stunning software versions of 2 Korg digital synthesis masterpieces -- the M1 and Wavestation -- plus the MDE-X multi-effect plug-in. Now you can get the classic sounds of these 2 ground-breaking synth legends updated for the 21st century and ready to rock your computer, in VST, Audio Units and RTAS-compatible formats!

The Korg Legacy Collection delivers classic Korg synthesizers reborn as software. Taking advantage of the technical know-how uniquely available to the original manufacturer, Korg has received high acclaim for turning some of their most legendary instruments into software while adding modern parameters and up-to-date ideas. Now, joining the Korg Legacy Collection is the all-new Digital Edition, featuring the software incarnation of the legendary M1 and an enhanced version of the Wavestation software synthesizer.

M1 Software Synthesizer
Back by popular demand: the definitive software version of the classic M1, the Korg synthesizer that established the PCM synth sound.

Introduced back in 1988, the M1's popularity steadily grew to exceed an amazing 100,000 users. As the first workstation synthesizer, it was a definitive element in the sound of the late '80s through early '90s. Along with its innovative workstation concept, the M1's AI (Advanced Integrated) synthesis system used PCM waveforms and digital effects to deliver polished, production-ready Program and Combination sounds. As a pioneer of PCM tone generation, it was notable not just for the reality of its sound, but also for the distinctive tonal character that demonstrated the high level of Korg's voicing technology. From the famous M1 Piano sound through electric pianos, organs, synth pads, drums, and picked basses, numerous sounds available only from the M1 were taken up by musicians and producers around the world, and are still in use today. Although today's high bit-rate and high sample-rate sound libraries deliver greatly improved audio quality, it is difficult to find sounds with real character, sounds that can't be described purely in terms of specifications - sounds that are available only from the M1.

The M1 software synthesizer reconstructs the M1's sound engine into an eight-part multi-timbral tone generator featuring up to 256-note polyphony. The M1 software synthesizer is a complete stand-alone virtual instrument; and also supports RTAS, Audio Units and VST plug-in formats to fit smoothly into a modern music production environment.

Overflowing with Sounds
The M1 software synthesizer provides all of the PCM, Program, and Combination data found in the original M1 and the M1EX internal PCM expansion, plus the PCM data and Program/Combination data from all nineteen optional ROM cards.

In addition, it contains new PCM Drum, Program and Combination data that are ideal for contemporary music production. With a total of more than 2,700 preset sounds, this is truly the ultimate M1. Of course, original M1 series data can also be imported as SysEx (SYX) files, opening up a universe of sounds to be found around the world.

New Features For Flexible Sound Creation
The M1 software synthesizer provides numerous new functions that were often requested for the original M1. At the top of the list is a rich resonant filter, and they've also added VDA modulation and a compressor effect. While the original M1 had 2 effect processors, this new software incarnation boasts 2 insert effects for each of the eight multi-timbral parts, as well as 2 master effects, for even greater sound processing capabilities.

User Interface Designed for Easy Operation
Taking advantage of the computer's display, the M1 software synthesizer features a completely redesigned interface that emphasizes ease of operation. Many parameters can be seen at once, and certain parameters can be displayed graphically. Ease of use has been a primary consideration at every point -- for example, the Combination mode and Multi mode have been designed to be completely independent.

The new browser and search functions group sounds together based on instrument type and tonal character, making it quick and easy to find the right sound for any project. Once a sound has been selected, the Easy Edit page or the Performance page can be used to quickly tweak the sound so that it perfectly matches your needs.

Wavestation Software Synthesizer Version 1.5
The Wavestation appeared in 1990 offering its new 'Advanced Vector Synthesis System,' which allowed combining and shifting between multiple complex waveforms.

The Wavestation achieved worldwide honors -- including -Hardware Innovation Of The Year from U.S. Keyboard Magazine -- and featured 2 radical innovations that opened up a revolutionary new world of sound that is still very much in demand. One was the ability to 'mix' or 'morph' between 4 oscillators to create new and unique sounds and textures, controlled from a vector joystick or a cyclic envelope. The second innovation was Wave Sequencing, which allowed the playback of different waveforms in a specific order to create evolving soundscapes, and unique rhythmic or melodic sequence patterns.

In 2004, the Korg Legacy Collection introduced the Wavestation software synthesizer. All of the Wavestation and Wavestation-SR factory data -- 550 Performances, 385 Patches, 484 PCM waveforms, 55 types of effects -- was included in this original release.

The new Wavestation software synthesizer Version 1.5 adds all of the PCM data, Patches and Performances contained in the 6 original optional ROM cards -- more than 250 Performances, 250 Patches, 250 PCM waveforms and 150 Wave Sequences -- long sought after by many current Wavestation owners.

The Wavestation v1.5 software synthesizer opens new sound programming territory, providing more than 1,400 preset sounds plus a massive collection of additional PCM waveforms and Wave Sequences. Best of all, the Wavestation v1.5 software synthesizer is able to import original Wavestation series data via SysEx (SYX) files.

The Wavestation software synthesizer Version 1.5 is ready for today's musical challenges, providing support for RTAS, VST and Audio Units plug-in formats -- as well as stand alone operation.

MDE-X Version 1.2 Multi-effect Plug-in
MDE-X is the awesome multi-effect plug-in first introduced in the Korg Legacy Collection, delivering 19 high quality effect types derived from the technical innovation and research behind Korg's Digital Recorders, TRITON synthesizers, and effects processors.

With the new Korg Legacy Collection - Digital Edition, MDE-X Version 1.2 is here, and now supports RTAS, as well as VST and Audio Units plug-in formats. Featuring a low CPU drain design, MDE-X v1.2 comes equipped with 128 immediately useful and editable effect programs perfect for sound design, recording, mixdown sessions - even live performance! zZounds is an authorized dealer of Korg products.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds offers quick and easy service, and my order was on my doorstep faster than I could drive to a store!" - customer on February 8, 2014
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (34 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Two Korg Classic Synthesizers and a Multi-Effects for Peanuts!"
Sound: Hugely usable sounds; hundreds of beautifully designed presets and great tweakability. An easy way to get all the lovely bright pop sounds of the 90's. Feature: The M1, the most popular workstation ever, the Wavestation, still in demand, ALL of the add on cards and roms, and a really great multi-effect plugin. Ease of Use: Fire them up or load them into the sequencer. The presets are lovely and inspiring, and there are endless ways to tweak them. Quality: These are dated sounds and there are much fatter sounds, with gigabites of samples, available. But for $150, having over 2000 beautifully designed presets, there is no question of quality for the money. Value: Totally worth it. These are really fun and inspiring and hugely endowed with usable sounds. For the cost of a couple of lame sample cds. The Wow Factor: To be able to throw into any mix some of Korg's classic sounds; who could say no? Especially for the price. Overall: I can't see a day when I would not want to have these available to use. They're musical, easy on the processor, and really lovely to play.
Style of Music: Blues

"Wavestation Legacy puts a hurt on my SY22"
Sound: Matches my Roland JX-8Ps fat sounds (brass). It's bells are stronger (like a DX7/TX81Z) than my Yamaha SY22 and the vector sounds morph for a long time. Where the SY22 has sounds unlike any other instruments, the Wavestation had more choices and ultimately took the SYs to a different level. Feature: Which it had a help tool bar. I don't like the USB Key Fog you have to insert to be able to run the program. I think that once you buy it, you should not need a USB key to be inserted for a program you paid for to run. Ease of Use: Very easy. No latency on my IBOOK G4 1.2 GHZ, 1.25 GB RAM. Works well w/ Garageband. Value: $140 Good Price. Overall: If someone steals it, I would buy it again. I hate the USB Key fog, though.
Style of Music: Rock
