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

Korg has added microKorg, Electribe and Kaoss Pad plugins two its synth-packaged software collection.

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

Version 4 has its sights set on the ’90s and ’00s, with 2002’s microKorg being the most notable addition. The plugin emulates the “sound, behavior and look” of the original, including its analogue modeling oscillator, filter and amp sections. The effects section, arpeggiator and – of course – the vocoder are here, too, although the iconic gooseneck microphone doesn’t come included.

The Electribe-R is based on iElectribe for iPad, which landed in 2010, but offers expanded beat modes and the effects and step sequencer from both 1999’s Electribe-R hardware and the subsequent mkII version. All the preset data from the iOS versions is here, too.
