The Krome 88 keyboard features a carefully chosen selection of the top sounds available today such as piano, electric piano, and vital and dynamic drum kits, giving you the best of the basics. These highly usable piano, electric piano, and drum sounds by themselves set the Krome 88 apart from any other keyboard in its class. With sound quality and features normally found in much more expensive instruments, Korg’s Krome 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 88 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 88 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 88 has a full complement of the features you've come to expect from a Korg workstation, starting with the 16-track sequencer. A rich suite of tools will 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 effect section in the Korg Krome 88 provides 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 88 keyboard is equipped with Korg’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer Action) keyboard, ensuring that every nuance of your playing dynamics will be expressively reflected when playing sounds such as piano or electric piano.

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 88 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.

This keyboard is "FIRE!"
What is your opinion of this product?
This keyboard was purchased at 0% interest for 12 monthly payments and I didn't even need a credit card. I don't like however that they did a hard inquiry on my credit. I purchased a Yamaha damper pedal that was not compatible with the keyboard and AmericanMusical gave me no problem sending a return shipping label at their expense and crediting my original payment method back so I could buy a korg pedal. I previously had a Yamaha product and this Korg crushes it. This thing is "FIRE!" Thank you AmericanMusical.

Power Button and Boot up Time
What is your opinion of this product?
The Korg Krome has pretty good sounds but the power up button and bootup time is bad. I bought a Krome in 2013. I was shocked when I had to have it fixed in 2017. Otherwise a good keyboard.

Great performance on a budget
What is your opinion of this product?
It is of great quality. This level of performance at this price point is unheard of.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
