    Korg’s new Formant Motion function uses filter banks to analyze the input signal (the modulator), and records up to seven seconds of formant motion data. By using the play back of this recorded formant motion data, you can create complex moving (or even “talking”) vocoder programs that don’t require any mic input.

  • Page 9: Timbre Features

    Each RADIAS Timbre is built on two oscillators. A total of nine oscillator algorithms are available, including the traditional analog synthesis waves - sine, triangle, pulse (square) and sawtooth - as well as Korg DWGS waves, PCM waves and drum kits, external audio sources and more. Variable Phase Modulation, cross mod, ring mod, sync, waveform shaping and other advanced modulation capabilities allow you to experience more sound-creating flexibility than ever before.

    RADIAS Sound Editor software Your RADIAS comes with the Korg RADIAS Sound Editor software. By connecting your RADIAS to a com- puter via USB, you can use this Editor Librarian program to edit, save, store and recall Program, Timbre, FX, Global and parameter data quickly and easily.

  • Page 11: How A Program Is Structured, Synthesizer

    How a program is structured Global mode (GLOBAL) To enter the Global mode, press the [GLOBAL] button. In this mode you can set the parameters that affect the entire RADIAS, such as tuning and user scales, selecting the functions for the assignable pedal and as- signable switch, transmitting MIDI exclusive data dumps, and other MIDI-related settings.

  • Page 12

    Introduction Timbre A timbre consists of the oscillators (OSC1/OSC2/NOISE), mixer (MIXER), filters (FILTER), amp (AMP), en- velope generators (EG), LFOs, virtual patches (VIRTUAL PATCH), modulation sequencers (MOD SEQ), equalizer (EQ), and the insert effects (INSERT FX1/FX2). By editing the parameters of these sections you can create an incredibly diverse range of sounds.

  • Page 13: Envelope Follower

    How a program is structured Virtual Patch (VIRTUAL PATCH) The virtual patch section lets you freely assign modulation sources to modulate-able parameters, giving you even more flexibility for creating sounds. You can make six virtual patch assignments in each timbre. Modulation Sequencer (MOD SEQUENCER) Using a modulation sequencer, you can apply up to sixteen discrete values (steps) to a modulate-able pa- rameter over time, in a manner similar to vintage analog synthesizers.

    Introduction Vocoder (VOCODER) A vocoder is available in every program The RADIAS’ vocoder contains 16 stereo bands. A vocoder applies the spectral character of the “modulator” (e.g., a signal received from the INPUT 2 jack) to the “carrier” (e.g., the sound of a timbre or a signal received from the INPUT 1 jack). The most popular way to use this is to input your voice from a mic connected to the INPUT 2 jack, creating the impression that an instrumental sound is “talking.”...

    Quick Start Playing programs – Program Play mode The RADIAS contains a total of 256 programs, organized into sixteen banks (A–P) with sixteen programs in each bank. Here’s how to select and play different programs. Entering the Program Play mode The RADIAS defaults to the Program Play mode each time the power is turned on.

    Quick Start Step Sequencer You can use the two step sequencers to record and play back a phrase or pattern. This section explains how to play a step sequence and make some simple edits. For details on recording and editing, refer to p.50 “Step sequencer recording and editing.” Playing a program using the step sequencer Some of the factory programs already contain sequence data.

    Quick Start Playing a Drum Kit – Drum Play mode The RADIAS provides thirty-two drum kits, each consisting of sixteen drum instruments. You can assign these instruments to note numbers and play them from the keyboard, and one timbre in each program can be assigned a drum kit.

  • Page 35: Editing, Basic Editing Procedure, Editing In The Program Play Mode

    Editing A program consists of a large number of parameters; the names and synth parameters of all four timbres, the program common settings such as program name, vocoder settings etc. If you want to create a program “from scratch,” you’ll need to understand what each of these parameters does. An easier way to get started is to start by choosing one of the factory programs or timbre templates and editing the parameters to under- stand what they do.

  • Page 36

    Editing Selecting the timbre to edit If the program consists of more than one timbre, here’s how to select the timbre you want to edit. Use the TIMBRE SELECT [1]–[4] buttons to select the timbre you want to edit. The button for the selected timbre will blink. The front panel knobs and buttons and the timbre param- eters shown in the display will apply to the timbre that is selected.

  • Page 37: Changing A Value

    Basic editing procedure Selecting and editing a parameter Use the cursor buttons to select the parameter you want to edit. When you press one of the cursor button, the cursor will move to the next parameter, and it will be high- lighted in the display.

  • Page 38: Compare Function, Saving An Edited Program

    Editing Compare function While editing a program, you can compare the edits you have made to the original program or timbre. Press the [COMPARE] button. The display will indicate “Compare.” Play the keyboard to hear the sound as it was before you began editing it.

  • Page 39: Loading Other Timbre Sounds/the Template Function

    Basic editing procedure Loading other timbre sounds/The Template function The Template function can be a real convenience when you’re creating a program sound or an effect. You can load a program template that is close to the type of sound you have in mind, and then edit it to create a program much more easily than working from scratch.

  • Page 40: Assigning A Name

    Editing Making a template Here’s how to make a timbre template. Templates you make can be loaded in the same way as the factory templates. You will use the P16: UTILITY page to make templates. (☞p.107 “P16 UTILITY,” p.113 “P16 UTILITY”) Select a program that uses a timbre you want to store as a template, and enter the Program Edit mode.

    Program parameter editing Applying modulation to various parameters – Virtual Patch (V.PATCH) Virtual Patch lets you assign fifteen different modulation sources to modulate various sound parameters. If you want to use the front panel knobs to adjust the virtual patch parameters, use the MOD SE- QUENCER [SELECT] button to make the EDIT indicator light.

    Program parameter editing You can use the above procedure to edit existing sequence data or to edit sequence data you record- ed in realtime. Recording modulation sequence data in realtime – the Motion Rec function The Motion Rec function lets you tweak a knob in realtime, record the movements of that knob, and apply those changes to the steps in a modulation sequencer.

  • Page 52: Editing The Effect Parameters

    Editing Editing the effect parameters The RADIAS provides a two-band equalizer and two insert effects for each timbre, and one master effect for each program. Here’s how to edit the insert effect and master effect settings. If you want to use the front panel knobs to edit the sequencer, insert effect, and master effect pa- rameters, make sure that the MOD SEQUENCER [SELECT] button is set to EDIT.

    Editing Use “ScanBotom” and “ScanTop” to specify a “key window” - the region of notes on the key- board that will trigger the arpeggiator. The arpeggiator will operate when you play keys in the region between “ScanBotom” and “ScanTop.” Editing each step played by the arpeggio pattern (ARPEGGIATOR – TRIGGER) You can specify the note played by each step of the arpeggio pattern.
