Hi,

I'm Tom, I play music on my computer as a hobby.

Just purchased a triton rack on ebay and am learning to use it.

I write songs with BIAB then export .mid files into Cubase SX3 and change them around, add guitar/vox etc.

The triton has made the BIAB side of things a lot nicer with it's GM2 sounds and I'm slowly going through
voices to use in cubase.

Very new to everything korg. I know my Mo6 keyboard pretty well and I still have a SW1000xg card in my
computer. I use an SK48 interface.

I've always read about the karma software and plan on buying it, then I should be able to keep up with things on
this forum...?

Right now I have the demo but I'm doing lots of reading before trying it out.

The unit came with no disks. I downloaded the factory disk stuff from Korg but I don't have a floppy drive.
Have to look into if I can send it over midi with sysex.

Anyway, interesting group, I'm really enjoying the sounds on my rack and looking forward to trying karma.

Hi Tom,
  Welcome to KKY.  Now, if you want to avail yourself of the "expert" advice, then you need to go to Karma Lab
Forums http://www.karma-lab.com/forum/
There is a dedicated forum for KarmaTriton software within KLF.
Cheers,
Jim

Keyboard Ergonomics

Dear friends, I really need your help. I am designing a keyboard which is quite different from what we
imagine of "keyboard".

Firstly, its shape is not linear; it looks like a curve. And keys are placed with an angle. Also I propose a
different usage of thumb.

Can you please look at the drawing on the link and comment on it. I am not a keyboardist and your help is really
valuable for me.

Best wishes...

Re: Keyboard Ergonomics

It looks interesting. Not sure about the keys. for some hard core keyboard player may have a problem with it
but, I would have to get my hands on that to see how it feel. You know anything different some people will :( on
it. Its nice tho. Let us know more as you do more work.

Re: Keyboard Ergonomics


 curved piano keyboards will be problematic for many players...however if you make a u-shape that is
actually three separate controllers..bass left, synth middle and lead right and use the corners for
transport and button controllers you might have a great workstation setup.  Curved single keyboard does
not appeal to me. You could provide a great controller space however...with triple functionality and
still have a curved casing....

RE: Keyboard Ergonomics


Hi,

As a long-time keyboard player I'm not sure that a curved keyboard would allow the dexterity needed to be
able to quickly place fingers of both hands in the right places. In playing a keyboard, there is essential
body-movement along the length of the keyboard which wouls seem to be hampered, and if the right hand was
playing notes of high register, whilst the left hand was playing lower bass notes, both hands would be away
from the player's peripheral vision, making accuracy much more difficult.

Another difficulty might be in transporting such a keyboard, it is difficult enough to find good cases for
standard keyboards, which at least stack well together in vans etc.

Just my initial reaction.

Mike

Academic Research

Dear everybody,
I am (as an industrial design master student) conducting a project on keyboards. For this project I need to
record motions of a player's joints and muscles while performing. In Sheffield Hallam University
Research Centre we will set up highly sophisticated devices to accomplish this task.

Is there anybody in this group living in Sheffield/England?

Regards...
