KORE 2.1 interweaves MIDI Control Mode

updated 09:25 am EDT, Fri July 31, 2009

KORE 2.1 update

Native Instruments has produced a v2.1 update for KORE, its music workstation software. Users browse through a collection of sound libraries, picking samples for use in production or live performance. Various modules and plug-ins can be applied to generate original output.

The v2.1 update's main change is the MIDI Control Mode, which allows the bundled KORE hardware controller be used as a customizable MIDI device outside of the program. Users must still toggle the mode on through a button combination. The feature also supports the Mackie Control Unverisal protocol, enabling controller use with other workflow suites.

Also new in the patch is better Pro Tools compatibility when using Leopard, and a series of bugfixes. The software runs on Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and requires at least a 1.8GHz G5 processor, or a 1.66GHz Core Duo. The KORE 2 hardware bundle costs $449; the software by itself is $229. The v2.1 download is free for existing KORE 2 owners.
