Korg Introduces the opsix "Altered FM" Synthesizer

Own FM with Korg’s opsix Altered FM Synthesizer

Update: Kraft Musik video added to the playlist below.

The KORG opsix is here. It appears KORG went with the smaller Wavestate-like body. You might remember the full size keyboard teasers from previous posts. That said, details:

"The legendary sound of FM synthesis had graced hundreds of albums, from its introduction in the 80’s to today. Korg’s opsix puts the power of expanded six-operator FM synthesis in your hands, with instant on-panel controls that help you create custom FM sounds with unparalleled ease.

'Altered FM' takes you light years beyond classic FM with 32 voices of polyphony, five modulation types, a user algorithm mode, multiple filter models 1 “logue”-style 16-step note and motion sequencing, effects for days, a 12-point modulation matrix, and much more."

User videos:

Use the player controls at the bottom left of the player once started to skip around. Some are long.
See the dealer links in the playlist below and the banners on the right for availability.

"Rethink everything you know about FM synthesis.

The opsix represents a new and expansive reimagination of classic digital synthesis. Much like Korg did when bringing wave sequencing back in a more powerful, more musical, and more immediately accessible way with wavestate, so was the approach to FM sound generation of the opsix, resulting in another incredibly flexible and unique synth.

“Tiny Pieces of You”

via alka:
"wanted to give you a heads up that Roger O'Donnell is giving away a free download off of his new release (that i also appear on) for xmas!

in his words:
sometimes the absurdities of the record industry amaze even me but it saddens me when musicians get sucked into the vortex in their search for fame and fortune. It never works, never ever but they still try...

So here's a free song that my label and I would like to give away for Christmas. We don't have to ask anyones permission to do this because we think alike and we just love music and we would rather people got to hear good music.

This song is very special to me, I wrote it during a very difficult and moving period in my life and it is dedicated to the love I have for one person and what she went through. She is a special shining light....."
