MOSS ELP Lead

PC:Software:MOSS_ELP.zip
 
MAC:Software:MOSS_ELP.hqx
 
MOSS ELP Lead
“MOSS ELP Lead” Program

Here is a great lead sound created using the EXB-MOSS board. So good we had to share it!

This sound was created by Jack Hotop for his demos at a recent NAMM show. According to Jack, he wanted a lead sound where he could easily morph between two different “ELP” type of sounds, so that he could continue to play on one program as the backing tracks moved from song to song. This sound was originally played on a TRITON using the Realtime Control Knobs to edit the Cutoff, Resonance and Release of the filter. The Ribbon controller was used to manipulate the Envelope settings.

Although this sound was originally created on the TRITON, it can be played on any Korg product equipped with the EXB-MOSS Option – TRITON Classic, TRITON STUDIO, TRITON-Rack, and KARMA.

You must have the EXB-MOSS board installed to use this sound.

The .pdf document is included in the download.




* MOSS stands for Multi Oscillator Synthesis System, the DSP Modeling Engine originally developed for the Korg Z-1, Prophecy and Trinity V3.

Added to the file are some Programs made using only SAW waves to show off the synthesis power of the TRITON, made by Korg programmer Jack Hotop. Next up are the Lead sounds Jack made for Tom Coster which have been available on our site for some time now. Rounding out the collection are a group of dance/synth sounds developed during the PCM-09 Trance Attack project which use only ROM waveforms, so they can be used in any TRITON without needing the EXB-PCM09 board. Finally, we've included two template programs for using mono or stereo samples. The Bank will automatically load into the "E" Bank. A full name/category list is included in the download.
