Info updated on:

KORE 2 is a combination of software and hardware system comprising of a library of well over 500 production-ready sounds, 3,000 sound variations, along with 100+ effect settings. The KORE 2 unleashes six incorporated sound engines, along with a dedicated hardware controller, as well as the ultra-fast KoreSound browser.

With the Sound Variations and Sound Morphing, the user can play around and tweak the sound with great ease, as well as unprecedented speed. Consequently the on-board sounds boast of an unequaled level of depth and detail, thanks to the combination of high-end sound generators.

The application is also infinitely expandable with the Audio Unit or VST plug-in, and also allows the user to combine KoreSounds, MIDI file players, step sequencers, plug-ins, effects, arpeggiators and even entire performances in any combination. Moreover, with the new edition, the user can create music faster, work smarter, and the latest version comes with radically simplified multi-language user interface featuring menus and helper in English, Spanish, German, French and Japanese. It also unveils a sound matrix in the mixer view.

KORE 2 comes with simple drag and drop operation in a unified interface for every file type, minimizing the precious time of the user spent on managing files and hence maximizes creativity. The program also elegantly handles all elements like KoreSounds, performances or MIDI modules, plug-ins, effects, and the likes of them in a similar way using a single interface.
