This section of the website gives licensed end users of the VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Sound Banks purchased from Synthsounds.co.uk - an explanation and description of the Controller Assignments which I have assigned to the Control Surface of the Korg Kronos. Some of the Programs in the VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Sound Banks use advanced Controller Assignments. However, this depends on whether the left hand is free to use the control assign buttons, joysticks and knobs whilst playing the Kronos keyboard!

Below is a brief description of the Controller Assignments for the Korg Kronos VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Sound Banks:

 

VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Synth Bass HD1 & EXi Sound Banks

The Synth Bass Programs have been designed with both hands being used to play notes on the keyboard. The left hand is also free to use the assigned controllers to control the Control Surface Knobs on the Kronos. These Parameters are Cut Off, Resonance, EG Intensity, EG Release, (Knob 5) F/A Attack, (Knob 6) F/A Decay, (Knob 7) F/A Sustain and (Knob 8) F/A Release.

You can also use the Pitch Bend on the Joystick and SW1 & 2 to switch between Octave Up and Octave Down.

 

VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Synth Pads HD1 & EXi Sound Banks

The Synth Pads Programs have been designed with both hands being used to play chords on the keyboard. I have assigned controllers only to the Control Surface Knobs on the Kronos. These are:- Cut Off, Resonance, EG Intensity, EG Release, (Knob 5) F/A Attack, (Knob 6) F/A Decay, (Knob 7) F/A Sustain and (Knob 8) F/A Release.

You can also use the Pitch Bend on the Joystick and SW1 & 2 to switch between Octave Up and Octave Down.

 

VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Synth Lead HD1 & EXi Sound Banks

The Synth Lead Programs have been programmed with just one hand (the right hand) being used to play notes on the keyboard and the left hand which is free to use the Pitch Bend, Vector Joystick, Ribbon, Joystick to modulate Program and Effects Parameters, SW 1 & 2 for Octave Up and Octave Down and the Control Surface Knobs to change the Cutoff, Resonance, EG Intensity, EG Release, (Knob 5) F/A Attack, (Knob 6) F/A Decay, (Knob 7) F/A Sustain and (Knob 8) F/A Release.

 

VITA SOUNDS VOL. 1 Synth SFX HD1 & EXi Sound Banks

The assigned controllers are the defaults within each Program, but you are also free to change these as you see fit and assign controllers of your own choice to the various controllers on the Control Surface of your Korg Kronos.
