Unlimited recording tracks = limitless possibilities
KORG Sound on Sound is a handy-sized multitrack recorder that lets you play back your song while continuing to overdub more parts. You can overdub as many times as you like, without having to worry about running out of tracks. Pick a rhythm, chop out some guitar chords, lay down a vocal, add some harmonies, and play a solo—or 2, or 3, or 50. With the KORG SOS recorder, the possibilities are endless. Used as a sketchpad, Korg Sound on Sound preserves all of your musical ideas, from complex themes to inspired snippets and phrases.
KORG SOS saves each overdub individually
KORG SOS saves as individual WAV files. You can load each overdub directly into nearly any DAW software program as an individual track. The individual files are BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) compliant, meaning they contain timing information. So if you had overdubbed a track in the middle of the song, it will automatically align correctly in a BWF-supported DAW. You can also use the Finalize operation to automatically time-align each overdub track. KORG Sound on Sound records at 44.1 kHz/16-bit resolution, and saves recordings onto a convenient and reliable microSD or microSDHC card.
KORG Sound on Sound is capable of an unlimited number of undo/redo operations. This is great when you are recording alternate takes of a guitar solo, for example. You can set the KORG SOS to keep all of the undone recordings. Move all of your recorded tracks—even undone tracks—to a computer-based DAW system, and then choose the best take. Note: The unlimited undo/redo is limited by the capacity of the installed microSD/SDHC card.
The KORG SOS recorder's A/B Loop function can repeatedly play back a specified section of the songs—a great way to practice your instrument or build up your song. In addition, you can even record while looping, creating results similar to a looper effect.
This powerful feature changes the playback speed without affecting the pitch. Sound Stretch can be used during playback or during recording. You can record a difficult passage at a slow speed and then return playback to normal speed. Likewise, you can slow down the entire sound during playback. Set the playback speed anywhere from 25% to 150% of the original speed.
100 powerful KORG effects
Powered by KORG's proprietary REMS modeling technology, the SOS recorder provides 100 effect choices, including effects for electric guitar (such as amp modeling), acoustic guitar, vocals, or any instrument. The effect can be applied as you record, or added to a previously recorded track. In the Master position, the effect can be applied to the entire song. Effects are divided into Guitar, Mic, Master, and Touch. This last category controls effects in real time, using the KORG SOS recorder's touchscreen display.
•[GTR]: 36 types of KORG modeled guitar & bass effects
•[MIC]: 25 effects designed for acoustic sources using a microphone - vocals, acoustic guitar, etc.
•[MST]: 32 Master Effects, suitable for adding to a recorded song, or when recording a line input source (such as an external MP3 player)
•[TCH]: 7 Touch Effects, controllable in real-time using the display
The SOS recorder's rhythm function is convenient when recording your phrases and ideas. It can be used as a tempo guide or to create a rhythm backing. Fifty rhythms (each with four variations) cover a broad range of styles. Simply choose a pattern and set the tempo. The touch screen allows you to select one of four variations to change the complexity of the pattern
KORG tuner technology
Now you can always be in tune when you record. Guitar, Bass, and Chromatic digital tuners are built in to the KORG Sound on Sound. The calibration range is adjustable from 435Hz to 445Hz.
High-quality stereo mic / Internal monitor speaker
A high-quality stereo condenser mic is securely mounted inside the KORG Sound on Sound, providing a broad frequency response that realistically captures the sound of acoustic instruments. You can adjust the Tone, Low Cut, and Noise Gate settings of the input sound. The input level can be set manually or automatically. An external microphone jack is also provided. The dedicated guitar input lets you connect your guitar directly to the SOS. A line input for an external audio device is also provided. The monitor speaker lets you review your recording on the spot, without requiring any additional equipment.
Easy-to-use modern design
