16 Patches for the Korg Radias (and some free poop talk)

"I picked up a Korg Radias on a trade as it had fueled so many personal synth fantasies from the last couple of decades. I have an MS2000r so I wasn't expecting much. I was surprised for sure to find a 2006 synth engine so capable in 2020.

It's capable of a lot of weird (patch 16 - le chaos) and a lot of really beautiful subtle sounds as well. These patches lean heavily on the Decimator effect, which is the first of its kind I've ever come to love (check out Klevgrand's Degrader, my new obsession). I don't use the mod sequencer much, preferring instead to fill up the six virtual patches and go big on the velocity sensitivity.

It took a bit of experimentation but then I figured out how to use one sequence lane for multiple sounds by using keyboard splits. This made it easier to build a full verse using one sequencer for drums and the other for bass/pad, leaving the arp for leads.

Cool stuff for sure, probably going to keep this one a while. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
