Dan Strikes again ! A new sound pack is now available on Dan Stesco website
"Transistor organ is an advance VOX and FARFISA engine emulation full controled by Combi Tracks,Knobs and SW to have the real transistor organ fill. Also I emulated the detuned transistor oscilators, with special tune scale in GLOBAL. With Transistor Organ pack you'll have such a genuine 60's, 70's experience of that rock era."
I was invited to test it, so...I cannot refuse...I would say, as usual, it's an honor to preview and review Dan's work.
First, I have to tell you that I loved the first Dan's organ emulation pack. With just two sounds, Dan had proved to us that he could design excellent sounds with his system of transposition and superposed harmonies.
Here, Dan redid it and ... it works!
It's for you : Vox and Farfisa Organs ! With this pack, I guarantee you a pure sound of 60/70 ...
I admit I did not checked programs too much because all the intelligence of the pack lies in the use of the programs in combinations ... and here you are served!
Sound for rock, vintage organs, vintage sounds, I could immediately play the psychedelic Floyd or rock as if I was part of the Doors ... Bob Marley also heard me played some one of his titles ... In short, 33 combinations of happiness but not only...
You can play existing combinations, but you also can make your own, just by tweaking sound levels of each program in the combi...Try the Switch SW2 also, you will get awesome Leslie impression ;)
It costs 29$ alone (but you can get 10% off if you also buy the previous killer organ pack.)

After 4 years supporting the Korg Krome, we, at Kromeheaven, were expecting something new on the our synth...
and ta da ta daaaa....Here is an answer from korg, a new keyboard : The Krome EX !
Well, as usual the "new" keyboard comes into 3 versions, 61, 76 and 88 keys, but what's new in this Krome EX ?
According to the first information read on the internet, you will find :
-A new Piano sound
-A new Upright piano sound
-New Electric piano
-EDM Electronic Dance Music sounds (vocal samples)
PCM memory seems to be EXpanded (but we will discuss this below) but hardware does not seem to change in comparison with the old Krome.
To sum-up : 896 Programs and 512 Preload Combinations
The rest is well known : LCD touchscreen, arpeggiators, sequencer, etc...
Oh and yes : A beautifull aluminium case :)
No...no...and no ! Banditos !!!!
This krome EX has nothing to do with a new synth...In fact, even if the 2 new piano sounds are very cool, the fact is that the Krome EX is just a "big" software and pcm upgrade.
We expected a free krome software update but we had a "new" Krome EX with apparently the same hardware (To be confirmed) !
When we speak about a pcm expansion I doubt that it's a real "memory" upgrade..I would say instead an internal pcm content replacement ;)
No information about optional PCM data for the moment, but we will add and share information as soon as we get them.
Nb : Krome EX will be able to load Krome file ;)
The good news : At kromeheaven, we will try to support this Krome EX : sharing patches, tips, samples (if confirmed), and more !!! So Stay connected...
You can check few demonstrations found on youtube to make yourself an idea :
Demonstration from England, Luke Edwards
Demonstration from France, Michel Deuchst
Edm Sound demonstration from Vietnam
