Korg RADIAS is a virtual analog synthesizer, released by KORG corp. in 2006.RADIAS' MMT (Multiple Modelling Technology) engine was based on Korg's Oasys AL-1 synthesizer module, providing for several different synthesis methods, two of which may be combined in a single voice e.g. Phase Distortion (PD) Synthesis can be combined with Subtractive Synthesis (Virtual Analogue). The different synthesis methods employed by MMT represent the majority of methods used historically in other Korg synthesizers: The digital wave subtractive method was first used in Korg's DW series of machines and Phase Distortion was first used in their DS8 Synthesizer. This flexibility allows for very realistic emulations of past Korg synthesizers (both digital and analogue), though stays away from trying to emulate Korg's M1 and Wavestation series (these machines used PCM sample playback and Wave Sequencing / Vector Synthesis respectively, something that MMT does not emulate). As well as using the in-built waveforms (digital & analogue emulations) for the basis of sound creation, the RADIAS also allows for the input of an external signal which may be routed through the various sound shaping devices (filters / pitch envelopes etc.). The RADIAS has a comprehensive matrix modulation specification and to further enhance a sound the 'Wave Shaper' module allows for various sound distortion effects.
A 16-band vocoder with Formant Shift function is also available.
RADIAS also takes advantage of KKS (Korg... Read More
