The Legacy Collection is a collection of VST instruments from Korg and was released in 2004.[1] It consists of the Korg MS-20, Korg Polysix, Korg Wavestation, ARP Odyssey (under the later released Korg collection), Korg Mono/Poly, Korg M1 and Korg MDE-X Multi FX processor. They use Korg's proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology) to emulate the original hardware. The Legacy collection is compatible with ASIO RTAS VST[2] and stand alone so it can be used without a DAW. It is compatible with both the PC and Mac and the software was originally supplied on CD-ROM[3] but can now be downloaded via Korg's online store.
