Built by Customer Demand

AK PRO RENAMING SCALES 2

You asked, and we listened. Kelfar Technologies understands and the growing interest of musicians in micro-tonal music worldwide.

While it is possible to program your own scales by using the AK4/5 onboard feature, the AK PRO editor is much easier to use to create your own user scales and share them with musicians around the world. There is no limit of how many user scales files you can save!

Of course, each saved user scale .SCL file is able to have 9 user scales. The AK PRO editor allows you to name and rename the 9 user scales and saved them as part of the .SCL file.

Built-In Conversion Utility for Korg Trinity V3 PCG files

The editor converts your Korg Trinity V3 PCG files and loads them without the need to do any editing on the synthesizer. This works with both regular and MOSS sounds.

Built-In Utility: Modify the Korg Extreme / Studio Global Velocity and Aftertouch Curves

Tired of using the default firmware global values for the Global Korg Extreme / Studio Velocity and Aftertouch curves? Simply load the FIRMWARE .bin and let the AK PRO editor do the rest. You’re no longer tied to using the defaults.
