"88-Key Workstation with 3 Synth Engines, 16-Track Audio Recording, MIDI Sequencer & Effects

OASYS brings together over 40 years of refined expertise in making the finest and most intuitive and musical instruments in the world.

Korg designed OASYS to provide a full set of audio production tools to the demanding musician, and to reflect the changing nature of today’s music making process. OASYS brings together the world’s most powerful synthesizer, studio quality effects processing, second-generation KARMA technology, advanced MIDI sequencing, 16-track audio HD recording with CD burning, plus a flexible MIDI control surface all into one elegant instrument.

OASYS is not only an entirely new instrument, but a completely new platform to support Korg innovation for years to come. Powered by an ultra fast computer processor, and running newly-developed proprietary software atop Linux underpinnings, OASYS offers all the benefits of a variable software system, backed by the hardware integrity that can only come from a fully-integrated instrument design.

New synthesis methods for creating sound (EXi Expansion Instruments), new effects (EXf Expansion Effects), and additional PCM libraries (EXs Expansion Sample Libraries) can be added, ensuring that OASYS will remain the centerpiece of your musical world well into the future.

For new technology to be beneficial, it must remain accessible. Highlighted by a 10.4” color TouchView display, the front panel features a vast array of assignable control elements – pads, sliders, joysticks, knobs, ribbon, etc… all designed to provide effortless fingertip control. And while OASYS is a world unto itself, it can still play nice with others. The back panel offers a wealth of analog and digital inputs and outputs, including USB 2.0."
