SynthsKorg ⇝ Korg KARMA

The KARMA's name stands for Kay Algorithmic Realtime Music Architecture. Its main selling point is the ability to automatically generate appropriate accompaniments and arpeggios in realtime as you play.

Its sound engine is based on the Korg Triton. Its successor is the Korg M3 workstation, which includes the next generation of KARMA technology.

The KARMA can be expanded with up to two EXB-PCM expansion boards and the EXB-MOSS board.
