32 MOD-7 programs for ambient and dance music. This soundset is made exclusively for the Korg Kronos synthesizer. It uses lots of the special features that the Korg Kronos MOD-7 synthesizer has to offer.
Every program contains a drum track, a KARMA scene and 8 Chords assigned to the Pads. If you want to have an idea how to use the sound just activate the drum track and KARMA and press one of the 8 pads. The most important part is that they are very different so you have examples of how to create specific type of sounds yourself.
There are lots of tricks hidden in these programs. Tricks like:
– PCM sources for FM modulation
– Bit Reducing techniques for that old sound
– Analog setups for Lead sounds
– Combinations of PCM sounds and pure FM sounds
– And much more!
So there’s a lot more than meets the eye when you first look at the patches, so take your time to explore them if you want to learn programming the MOD-7.
Performance tips and tricks
Almost every program uses the following setup for the Modulation joystick and the Switches. So try every sound to see how you can use these for performance purposes:
SW1: Transpose down
SW2: Dry FX settings
JSY+: Modulation of the sound
This time I have used the Switch 2 for modifying the overall effect of the program. In Ambient music the sound is very often sculpted by the use of FX, but when you use it in a song sometimes you want a dryer sound. This is very easy to do, when you don’t like the FX settings just press the SW2 button and instantly you will get a much dryer Sound FX setup. This works for every program.
