General What is your overall opinion of this product? It is of great quality. This level of performance at this price point is unheard of. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? While appealing most to someone who wants to do traditional piano/electric piano due to its voicing, it definitely has the right wave rom for handling just about any type you can think of. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? Extremely easy to use. The user interface is very straight forward. The buttons do offer a redundant feature set when using the touch screen, but i suppose if touch went out i wouldnt be stuck with down time. I prefer this workflow to most PC DAW's. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? I bought this product due to the fact that it had a nice wave rom. I bought it as a rompler, and i got just that. a rompler. As an unpublished feature the KROME also offers the ability to load 3rd party samples from sd card. This is not officially supported except through the "official" after market sound packs for m1/triton classics. Hopefully korg will add support for user samples, otherwise there are 3rd party developers actively working on applications to create the meta.img file where samples are stored. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? The sound especially the Acoustic Pianos and Electric Pianos and drums are of exquisite quality. Unmatched by any other workstation in this price range by far. Feel How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well? Being the 88 key version, it comes with an excellent weighted graded key bed. I feel that it does very well, coming from a Roland RD-150 (read: digital stage piano) I think that says a lot. Some might find the feel a little "plastic" but it definitely weighs up to the big boys. Disregard the videos on youtube about "key noise" this is purely the sound of the guys finger nail clacking on the top of the key combined with excessive downward force. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? if you want big workstation sound/feel at half the cost, this is the right piece of equipment for you. For the 1600 i paid, i feel like i got 2500 worth.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Even though most of the case is plastic I feel it is very well built. The keys feel good, and can take a lot of pounding. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The 7" touchscreen really helps make all the options and variables easier to change. I feel the keybed is well built and has a good feel for a 32.5lb workstation. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? In my opinion, The 7" touchscreen makes editing, and working with the Krome much easier than a lot of buttons. Its also to move around sounds very easy and everything is very easy to read. Sound How is the tone? The sound quality is top knotch for a workstation at this price point. They take some samples from the Kronos, some from the M3 and M50, and it makes for a best in breed workstation for entry-level and weekend warriors. I feel this keyboard is also great for gigging musicians due to the vast amount of usable sounds. General Your general opinion of this product. I just wanted to say that I ordered this from AMS at 4:45pm on a Friday, and without paying a dime on shipping it arrived at 3pm on Saturday! Now, its a few weeks before Christmas so UPS/FEDEx are treating Saturdays right now as another business day, but wow what service!! Value Was this item an overall good value? Between the keybed, the 7" touchscreen, the samples and sound, and features, I thought this board gave better value than even the other boards at this price.
Quality design for fast fingers & will not cut.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Since it is 35 lbs it is easy to put into a road case. It is balanced and does not feel bulky. The plastic all fits together well & there is no giggle. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Each of your favorite sound voices comes dry & you can put whatever efx that you want on the memory. Then put your favorites in the user banks !!!! Ya hoo! Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Since I produced music on the Triton Pro X (38 CDs), the adaptability came easy. I find this sequencer easy too. Very self explanatory when you learn the locations. Sound How is the tone? The higher frequencies of the details of each instrument and voice is much better than you would expect. Details on playability is great. Pitch bender on solo instruments is not so drastic that it burps. General Your general opinion of this product. I am a hungary keyboard player. Gimmi some more of this keyboard !!!! Value Was this item an overall good value? I likes the Kronos. But is was too big & too heavy. This Krome is the alternative. Of my 9 keyboards, it looks like this is going to be my favorite.
