http://www.karma-lab.com/karma-motif - KARMA Developer Stephen Kay provides an introduction to KARMA Motif - the software that turns six different Yamaha instruments into interactive algorithmic music generation systems.
Nov 14, 2014: Version 3.2 released, now supports 6 different Yamaha instruments: Motif XF, Motif XS, MOX, MOXF, Rack-XS and S70/S90 XS.
You may know KARMA from the fact that it's been an important feature of many Korg high-end workstations, such as the Kronos, OASYS, M3 and original Karma Workstation. KARMA Developer Stephen Kay has now made it possible for Yamaha owners with a Motif XF, XS, MOXF, MOX, Rack-XS or S70/S90 XS to have an even more advanced version (v 3.2) of the same KARMA technology with the new release of KARMA Motif Software. Running on your PC (Mac/Windows), KARMA Motif provides you with all of the inspirational and interactive KARMA features of Korg's flagship workstations and then some - at a fraction of the cost. The only difference is that the KARMA engine is provided by the computer, not built-in to the keyboard. Yet it feels "built-in" since KARMA sends parameters and text information directly to the keyboard's Remote Mode display so that you can operate the software without even looking at the computer. KARMA Motif uses the Song/Mixing/Multi Mode of the Motif-based instruments to provide 16 part multi-timbral templates with the kind of fully interactive real-time controlled grooves that only KARMA can produce.
