Product Description

The Korg Krome 61 Key Synthesizer Workstation is the new standard for sonic excellence and feel in its class, providing a limitless palette of sound and full-length, unlooped piano and drum sounds derived from the flagship Kronos! Its’ incredible light weight, easy to navigate controls via the 7 inch touch screen, and powerful effects makes the Korg Krome 61 a gigging keyboardist’s dream.

Korg Krome 61 Key Synthesizer Workstation Features

  • Kronos-derived full length, unlooped piano and drum sounds, plus new electric pianos designed to shine on stage
  • 61 incredible semi-weighted natural-touch keys
  • Electric pianos with eight-level velocity switching for unmatched expressive power
  • Clear, intuitive control with Korg’s exclusive 7-inch color TouchView display
  • Drums offering separately mixable direct and ambient sounds for studio-grade quality
  • Drum Track plays back realistic, inspiring grooves at the touch of a button
  • Expertly created, in-demand sounds including 640 Programs and 288 Combinations
  • Powerful Effects with 5 Inserts, 2 Master, and 1 Total FX, plus per track/timbre EQ
  • Distinctive aluminum panel design exudes a sense of quality
  • USB connection to your computer, plus an SD Card slot for data storage
  • You can use the Krome editor to edit sounds on your computer
In addition to Korg’s well-proven workstation features, the Krome workstation features a carefully chosen selection of the top sounds available today such as piano and electric piano, as well as vital and dynamic drum kits, giving you the best of the basics. These highly usable piano, electric piano, and drum sounds by themselves set Krome apart from any other keyboard in its class. With sound quality and features normally found in much more expensive instruments, Krome 61 is a unique and irreplaceable partner for real-world musicians.

Groundbreaking Grand Piano Sounds
The Krome synth workstation borrows the impressive ‘German D Grand’ that was created for the Kronos keyboards. In addition to the rich sound of 88 full-length unlooped stereo samples, damper resonance is also included. Unless the original sound is impeccable, no amount of parameter editing can create an enjoyable playing experience. The Krome’s piano is an example of Korg's passion for every musician to enjoy great sounds played on great instruments.

Electric pianos offering expressive warmth and realism
Krome 61 features three types of electric pianos. Eight velocity levels have been used to ensure faithful response to the player's expression. In addition, the vintage amps, cabinets, and classic effects so important to these timeless sounds have been realistically modeled, ensuring that everything from the touch to the final sound will be utterly enjoyable in the Korg Krome keyboard.

Studio-quality drum sounds
Krome contains the same ‘Jazz Ambience Drums’ that can be found on the Korg Kronos. Taking advantage of the high-capacity PCM memory, these sounds capture a dramatically high level of response and realism. Adjusting the mix balance between the direct sound and the ambient sound allows you to create a rich drum sound that has exactly the balance and character that you want.

Colorful palette of sounds
In addition to piano, electric piano, and drums, the Krome 61 keyboard has a plentiful array of sounds to cover a broad range of styles. Stimulate your creativity by selecting any of the 640 Programs or 288 Combinations. Each one has been carefully created by pro studio and performing musicians to provide exceptional real-world use for both rich clean backing parts or soaring solos. Plus you can tweak, customize, create, and save your own sounds as well.

Realistic Drum Tracks
Simply pressing a single button turns on the Drum Track feature, providing realistic grooves played by professionals using the Korg Krome’s studio-quality drum sounds. Play along or incorporate them into your music production. In addition to more than 600 preset patterns inherited from Kronos, there's plenty of space for saving user patterns as well. Drum patterns can be created and used with the sequencer, as well as providing a rhythm guide while you play.

Dual polyphonic arpeggiators
In Combination mode or Sequencer mode, two arpeggiators can be running simultaneously. In addition to standard arpeggio patterns, these arpeggiators can generate guitar or bass riffs, drum patterns, or they can even be used as building blocks for sound design, to create pads, synth sounds, and sound effects that include subtle motion. You're also free to edit any of the patterns to create your own custom originals within the Krome keyboard.

Complete Workstation
Korg Krome 61 has a full complement of the features you've come to expect from a Korg workstation, starting with the 16-track sequencer. Krome comes complete with a rich suite of tools to jumpstart your creative urges. There's the convenient Auto Song Setup function; if inspiration strikes while you're playing a program or combination, simply press the REC switch to start recording immediately. Each Template Song assigns popular sounds to sequencer tracks through pre-routed effects to match a specific musical genre.

Achieve lightning-fast arrangements using Korg's Cue List, and build an armada of instant-access patterns using the RPPR (Realtime Pattern/Play Recording) feature. Go back and you can make any changes using the convenient piano-roll editing.

Awesome Effects
The all-important effect section in the Krome 61provides up to five Insert effects, two Master effects, and one Total effect. In addition to great choruses, flangers, phasers, delays, and reverbs, the 193 effect types include dynamic processing effects such as compressor and limiter, evocative effects like the Grain Shifter and Talking Modulator, as well as amp modeling and speaker simulation effects using Korg’s proprietary ‘REMS’ modeling technology.

Natural Expression
The Krome 61 features a semi-weighted natural-touch keyboard; the great feel and response are ideal for playing everything from any style of piano, to dynamic organ performance, to pyrotechnic synthesizer solos.

TouchView Interface
Krome’s huge 800 x 480 pixel TouchView Color display can show numerous parameters at once, ensuring great visibility. Simply touch the screen to change sounds or edit parameters. Finger-drag editing is also supported, allowing you to use the on-screen sliders and knobs directly. Numerous functions take advantage of the TouchView interface, such as the piano roll editor, a stopwatch that’s convenient for keeping track of a live performance, and a calculator keypad that is convenient for entering numerical values.

USB and SD Storage
You can connect the Krome 61 workstation keyboard to your computer via USB to easily transfer MIDI data. You can also use an SD card (commercially available) to manage the Krome’s data files.

Krome Editing Software
The Krome Editor and Krome Plug-In Editor allow you to edit your Krome from your computer while viewing large numbers of parameters simultaneously, or to use Krome in your DAW as if it were a software synthesizer.

The modern day TRITON
What is your opinion of this product?
It’s what I needed for sequencing my demos with a musician approach before going to protools. Only thing missing is the metal durability of the Triton series. This is plastic like the M50. Not recommended for gigging!

Great Upgrade from Korg M50
What is your opinion of this product?
We have two Korg M50 workstations. The Kromes were purchased to replace the M50s in a cover band. The Krome's color screen is much nicer than the M50's B&W screen. The Krome doesn't have the M50's four chord triggers. We have not yet used the Kromes in a live situation, but that will happen at the end of Jan 2016. The Kromes were easier to program because of the color screen. The ability to use an on-screen calculator is nice, but we haven't really had the need for it. We do like the tap-drag feature to change values. Sound quality is as good as the M50 which, itself, was excellent for our purposes. The unit is a bit heaver than the M50, but it appears to be better-built and sleeker in appearance. We only wish the number buttons and/or labels were back-lit for use on dark stages.

"One for the Money"...good purchase!
What is your opinion of this product?
Since I'm used to Korg keyboards the learning curve is very similar and easy to compose or write grooves. I like the enhanced sounds especially the EP's although the organ patches leave just a little to be desired but okay. My triton still has the Krome beat in that department. Overall a good buy for the money and I'll be giving her a test run live this weekend.

Very Nice Bang for the Buck!
What is your opinion of this product?
Overall I think the Krome 61 is a very good keyboard for studio use. I might be somewhat hesitant to take it on the road due to the amount of plastic in the build.
Excellent Korg sounds, especially the pianos, EPs, Strings. (Not so excellent guitars, however, since I am a guitar player this does not affect my use of the board.
Very easy to use...Love the Color Touch Screen!
For a decent quality keyboard in this price range I think that the Krome offers a very wide range of professional features.
Sound quality, as expressed earlier, is excellent on most types of instruments.
Fell of the keys is certainly not like an actual piano, it is synth action. Feels more like playing an Organ or Synth. Not a problem for me but it probably will not be great if you want real piano type action.

nt nearly as cool as i expected...very disappointed...
What is your opinion of this product?
if you are an entry level musician, or someone looking to do mostly generic and acoustic based work, this might be for you...
the touchscreen is great..very cool...seemswell is a Korg, after all...
well, a lot of menu work...I've had easier workstations, and using thescreen to sequence is very tiring...
pretty good...the sequencer, which is what i bought it for, is a drag to use...I owned an old Yamaha SY77 and the sequencer on that unit was a breeze compared to again, a LOT of acoustic based and cheesy synth sounds..
sound is good...but, again...for any kind of dance or synthwave type stuff, don't even look at this unit. My X50 has better sounds...
just fine. Layout is nice, on screen menu work is again, a total drag...
No way...Not worth the money. Get a microstation.
