Thoughts on NI KORE 2

Post by yaakp! » Wed Feb 06, 2008 12:46 pm

What do you think about the new NI KORE 2?

It looks like a nice tool for sound design with its internal sounds,
and very handy for presets (especially for Komplete owners).

Also - if it's really CPU-efficient - it could be a nice controller.

So anybody here owns Kore 2? Good or bad?

Everybody else: any opinions?

Thanks in advance!

I have never used mine -- albiet KORE 1. It is not a a midi controller. It is a pain in the a*s to setup with non NI vsts. I do have plans to use it, but I think I'd have been better off with a behringer knob box.

Its a good idea though. so...mixed reviews I guess.

Its a great VST host for a standalone softsynth box. Its also a comprehensive patch database and search engine. The ability to make complex multi-patches out of multiple manufacturers' softsynths, recallable at the touch of a button, is a real joy as well. It also has a dedicated control surface and MIDI interface.

I'm just sorry they dropped the audio I/O which is why I'm sticking with the Kore 1 hardware.

I'm trying to remember, doesn't the Kore 1 software use something like 25% of the cpu?

It's been a while, maybe I need to get it out and try it again.

I just wish you could buy the kore software without that midi controller.

I guess I'd be better off with bidule for the type of things I want to do anyway.

hmm, so is it worth to go with the Kore1 instead of the newer? How good is the audio quality? I'm hoping for something like the Kore, with better interface, great audio quality and some dedicated processor to make it more CPU friendly and hardware sounding.
