The past, present, and future of synthesis in one mind-blowing module.
The Korg RADIAS Synthesizer Vocoder brings together a sound module based on Korg's cutting-edge, analog-modeling MMT engine and a full complement of knobs and buttons. This 24-voice synth offers a variety of synthesis algorithms together with multiple effects, modulation sequencing, comb filter and wave shaping features, as well as formant-motion vocoding. The Korg RADIAS includes customizable synthesis templates to be used as starting points, with template data for 128 synth timbres, 128 insert effects, and 128 master effects.
The heart of this synthesizer vocoder beats with Korg's cutting-edge MMT (Multi Modeling Technology) synth engine, which borrows much of its modeling techniques from Korg's flagship OASYS. It eliminates aliasing noise in even the highest frequencies and delivers clean, pure waveforms. RADIAS provides two oscillators for each timbre that deliver modeled analog waveforms, formant waveforms, noise, ring modulation, sync, plus classic and modern PCM waveforms. The analog modeled waveforms allow a variety of oscillator modulation algorithms to be used to create complex sounds, even from a single oscillator. The dual-filter structure allows two filters to be used individually, side by side, or in series for maximum versatility.
Three envelope generators are used to apply time-varying changes to the pitch, filter cutoff, and amp level, as well as many other parameters. The bundled Korg RADIAS Sound Editor/Librarian software makes it easy to edit, manage, and archive settings on your computer through the USB port. RADIAS has two LFOs, variable Drive mode, a flexible wave shaping circuit, three modulation sequencers, six virtual analog synth patch cords, envelope follower, 16-band vocoder, 30 effect algorithms, six types of arpeggiator patterns, dual linkable 32-step sequencers, 256 programs, 32 drum kits, and 16 formant motion sets.

I have only played with this module countlessly at a music store. I was looking around for keyboards with better sounds and I stumbled upon the Radias module. I was using only an M-Audio MIDI controller but the sounds that came out were blowing my mind. This synth was much more than I expected out of a box so small. I have been playing on a Roland XP for years and realized I needed a new sound. This is my next purchase.
... but in this case, I will.The RADIAS is unreal. You'll hear a lot of talk about it not sounding like a vintage analog synth, but I say if you want that sound, then buy a vintage analog synth.I produce mainly Hip Hop and R&B, but recently I've been pegged to score a movie, and this thing delivers! It's got an unbelievable assortment sounds. The quality is top-notch. The rush is on to be the first one on the radio with this sound.The new price makes it a steal.
