M3 Tips
Welcome to KARMA Second Generation technology!
KARMA is an intelligent, interactive pattern generating technology that responds to your playing, providing endless
inspiration, capturing musical gestures of every family of instrument. The purpose of this document is to familiarize
you with KARMA'S possibilities so that you can take possession of this powerful technology and sculpt it to your own
musical goals.
Some KARMA basics
KARMA exists thanks to the vision of Stephen Kay, its creator. It's an acronym, standing for Kay Algorithmic
Realtime Music Architecture. The patterns that KARMA utilizes are called Generated Effects, or GEs for short. Your
M3 is loaded with GEs, 2092 of them to be exact! Each Program can be assigned one GE. Combis can be assigned four
GEs, and Sequences can be assigned four GEs—at a time! (Record the output of four: it's preserved as MIDI info; grab
four more if you like!)
The parameter values for the KARMA GEs are organized into Scenes. Each GE can have eight different
Scenes. There's a wealth of creativity and inspiration awaiting you, simply by trying out the Scenes developed by
Korg's expert international team of programmers.
The following pages will give you an opportunity to dig in and experience KARMA'S power and creative
possibilities – enjoy, and keep making great music!

    Working with KARMA on the M3 KARMA in Program Mode: 1. Play any note on the keyboard or one of the eight pads: the KARMA ON/OFF switch “wakes up” ON (lit) when you select Hard House Kit, and the GE pattern starts playing immediately ON: you need not hold a key down for the pattern to continue playing in this state can manually re-start the pattern with any key or pad whenever you wish.

    The point is that KARMA is meant to be an interactive process: Feel free to experiment, as the settings of one fader, or the entire KARMA section, can be restored at the touch of a switch. (Note: RESET CONTROLS works in similar fashion for all the other modes of the Control Surface) 3.
