KORE 64 Overview

The KORE 64™ ROM option represents a complete expansion and reimagining of the PC3 and PC3K's sonic potential (not for the PC3LE). Pushing the limits of V.A.S.T. synthesis for both realistic and experimental electronic sounds, KORE 64™ adds over 300 new programs, including stunning new Synths, Electric Guitars, Horns, Drums and Percussion. With KORE 64™ installed, the PC3/K built-in program library now totals over 1400 presets!


New Setups:

  • 50 new setups featuring the KORE 64™ sounds.
  • Over 200 new drum grooves in multiple styles.
  • New Dance and Hip Hop setups for triggering and controlling beats in real time.

New Synths:

  • New samples modeled after the Oberheim SEM, ARP Chroma, TX802, CZ1, and dozens of legacy waveforms from the K series.
  • Over 100 new synth programs.
  • Sounds for popular electronic music styles like House, Trance, Dubstep, Drum&Bass, Glitch, Electro Hip Hop, and more.
  • More real time controls, beat-synced modulations and envelope control transform sounds without hitting the edit button.
  • Atmospheric and cycling pads voiced for performing, producing, and scoring.

New Guitars:

  • New samples modeled after the Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster.
  • Palm muted and sustained articulations playable in a picked or legato style.
  • Instant-shredder arpeggiator patterns, whammy bar effects, and realistic feedback emulations.
