Korg returns to the ’90s and ’00s and adds microKorg, Electribe and Kaoss Pad plugins to version 4 of its software collection

Korg added microKorg, Electribe and Kaoss Pad plugins to his synthpackaged software collection.

This makes version 4 of the eye-catching bundle – which already contained emulations of (among others) Korg’s M1, Wavestation, Mono/Poly, Polysix, ARP Odyssey, Triton, Prophecy and miniKorg 700s synths – the most comprehensive yet is ready, with a total of 11 synths, two effects processors and one drum machine.

Version 4 has its sights set on the ’90s and ’00s, with the 2002 microKorg being the most notable addition. The plug-in mimics the “sound, behavior and appearance” of the original, including the analog modeling oscillator, filter and amplifier sections. The effects section, arpeggiator and – of course – the vocoder are also there, although the iconic gooseneck microphone is not included.

The Electribe-R is based on iElectribe for iPad, released in 2010, but features extensive beat modes and the effects and step sequencer of both the 1999 Electribe-R hardware and the subsequent mkII version. All the preset data of the iOS versions are also here.
