Korg DS-8 realtime sound editing

Published on Mar 1, 2019 Stereoping

"Some demo snippets showing the DS-8, Korg's FM-Synthesizer with two Oscillators and built in effects like modulation Delay, Flanger, Chorus .... The DS-8 is claimed to be hard to program. After understanding the concept - which is much easier and funny using a hardware midicontroller - it appears to be quite simple. The demo shows some MIDI settings which need to be adjusted on each powerup as the DS-8 does not remember them. Then some playing with the effects, timbre, spectrum and modulation generator. You will see - and HEAR - a complete hangup of the DS-8 as it does not seem to like SysEx-Editing the AMP envelopes. Last part shows the sonic bandwidth of the DS-8's FM-Synthesis by setting OSC 2 to XMOD and playing with the parameters."
