Habitat is a sound pack for KORG opsix and Korg opsix native. It features 75 new presets best suited to Ambient, Dub and Melodic Techno or Deep House. If you like atmospheric pads, deep Dub Chords, and swirling arpeggio lines, check out these Korg opsix patches. In addition, you’ll find a selection of powerful basses and complex lead sounds that cover a vast sonic palette ranging from melancholic to aggressive.
More than “just” FM Synthesis
KORG opsix is a fantastic 6 OP FM synthesizer – no doubt. But in contrast to older FM legends, it goes way beyond that. In the first place, it offers an intuitive interface that makes live performing and sound design real fun experience. Moreover, its flexible sound engine allows for complex and modern sounds that can hardly be found in other synthesizers.
And although KORG’s opsix is perfectly capable of reproducing those classic 80s Bells, rock organs and E-Pianos every entertainer loves, you’ll hardly find any of these in this sound pack. We promise!
Instead, you can expect a toolbox for contemporary electronic music like Techno, Ambient, IDM, and Electronica. Most of the included KORG opsix presets feature different synthesis algorithms such as subtractive filters or the extended sound design possibilities of the oscillators. Expect morphing cinematic drones, bittersweet strings, and ice-cold textures. On the other side of the spectrum, you can find seismic bass sounds, warm analog lead sounds, and pads that bring back that unique retro-feeling of a worn-out VHS tape.
Korg opsix Habitat: Patches for Live and Studio
Although there’s no way to put it nicely that Korg didn’t implement aftertouch in the opsix keyboard, at least we included it in our patches. When creating this sound pack, we have assigned mod-wheel, velocity, and aftertouch to the most relevant parameters of every single patch. So if you choose to play this synth live with a better keyboard, there’s no need to make any further controller assignments.
