What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Korg and Yamaha both make numerous keyboards into which you can load custom samples. But a sample of an analog synth does not mean it plays/behaves like an analog synth. You could probably get closer to Minimoog sounds by taking advantage of the MIDI Zoning capabilities of many Korgs and Yamahas to drive something like a Roland SE-02 or Behringer D. The latter is a bit closer to a Minimoog, while the former gives you recallable presets. Neither of these is terribly expensive or takes up much space.
They already do. The Model D I mentioned, and the followup Poly D which adds some polyphony.Give Behringer another 6 months and they'll probably be shipping a minimoog clone at the rate they've been going.
That's why I asked what the goal is. Some people think a Montage or Kronos or PC3K can already sound like Moog. Then again, some people think these boards can sound like a Hammond. ;-) It depends just how authentic you're trying to be. Korg's virtual PolySix in the Kronos does sound awfully close to a PolySix. And PolySix was a great sounding analog synth. But a purist would tell you right away, a Polysix did not sound the same as a Minimoog. That said, the VA-ness of Korg's emulations may well give you more of the "moogy" character you're after than an actual Moog sample would. Again, it really depends on exactly what someone's goal is.Like I said earlier, depending on the synth in question both the montage and the kronos have multiple synth engines built in which can be programmed to behave like a Minimoog patch.
My question is I would like to get a sound library to play on either the Korg I buy or the third board. I want as much of the Minimoog as I can get but without buying a physical board. I know that the Kronos would emulate a Moog but are there any downloadable packages I could buy to use on the Korg. I just need a good sound library of Moog sounds.
Perfect! thank you for that info!As you may know, the Minimoog didn't't have any factory programmed sounds in it whatsoever (it had no memory, for that matter). You turned the knobs to create the sound you wanted out of the parameters provided. But some of the sounds that people came up with ended up being widely emulated and/or used on hit songs. Kronos has a lot of Moog-type sounds already in it that will come reasonably close to those popular sounds, I wouldn't assume you need to buy a library, even if there is one. But if you're looking for particular Moog sounds (i.e. ones that were used on particular songs), you'd have to check to see if they are in there. There are also some high quality Minimoog emulators that run on the iPad, so that's another way you can access even better Minimoog emulation without havingf to buy another keyboard for it.
