Other enhancements to the SGX-2 engine included Sympathetic String Resonance and newly-recorded Una Corda (soft pedal – literally “one-string”) samples.

Massive Sound Selection
KRONOS comes equipped with thousands of sounds, created using various synthesis modes and calling upon over approximately 21 GB of preset waveform data covering a variety of genres. Each one has been carefully crafted by the KORG Sound Design team. The internal SSD offers a generous 62*GB capacity, providing enormous space for user sampling or downloading KRONOS Sound Libraries. These optional expansion KRONOS Sound Libraries add new professionally programmed sounds—without the need to add any new hardware.

Artist Signature Programs provide the priceless sounds actually used by top-ranking musicians. Additional Song Programs are named for the classic rock and pop songs whose signature keyboard sounds these programs recreate. Use these universally well-known sounds to pay homage to the originals, or as the basis for personal sonic explorations.

Perfect test for my studio

What is your opinion of this product?
The sounds on this keyboard are great. I was a little apprehensive to pay the sticker price, but now I really believe it has enhanced my studio. My studio clients really enjoy the sounds and the robust features this board offers. So far so good.

Amazing commercial release ready sounds / worth every dollar
What is your opinion of this product?
The Korg Kronos is a 61-key workstation with an 8-inch full color touch view screen that is brilliant. I have owned Yamaha Motif, Roland Fantom, and the Korg Triton Studio workstations. The Kronos completely outclasses these legendary workstations. UTILIZATION Using the Kronos did take me some time to fully understand it because it is completely different from any of the other workstations I have owned. Thankfully the color touch screen makes everything pretty easy to navigate and find what I was looking for. This is the perfect style of keyboard for the serious producer or sound designer who is looking for functionality and great sounds. SOUNDS The sounds are by far the best thing about this workstation. I demo'd the Kronos at a local retailer in NYC. I was completely blown away with the quality and plethora of onboard presets / sounds. This is what made me run home, pull out my credit card and use AMS 12-month payment plan.

My Ultimate Dream Keyboard
What is your opinion of this product?
I only dreamed of owning one because I could not afford the 12 month payment. Then last December 2017 you advertised it for 18 payments. What a great Christmas present. I jumped at it and could not be happier. Its an amazing keyboard to say the least. I have been a customer from way back when I bought my Korg Karma from you when it first came out.

King of the Beast!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have been a Korg user since the Trinity came out. Every new keyboard Korg has come out with I've purchased. I really love this board because of the 16 audio tracks available. For all intent and principle, this is a 32 track keyboard. I love the large size colored touch pad. It's also very user friendly. I'm looking forward to what Korg comes out with next.

Top notch & greatest choice I’ve made
What is your opinion of this product?
As a professional musician, the kronos is what I exactly needed for church services,shows, gigs and studio recording . The sounds are top of the line and the customization is great. Since it arrived at my House, I’ve created several unique sounds and it has also cut down my need for extra gear when traveling. So no more having to travel with a b3 or a fender Rhodes. From using a Roland fantom x and g series I can off the back tell a difference in the quality of the sounds. There is a slight poly issue, but it Depends on how much data each big sound within your layered custom user bank is pulling. To me that’s understandable, it takes a lot for that issue to occur. Other than that I love the live set mode and the transitioning of sounds that are continuous from patch to patch. This is indeed is my to go to board. You will not be disappointed with your purchase!!! I’m looking into getting another one to add as a second board for my upcoming venues.

This has got to be by far the best pro line keyboard out. I wish I had purchased the 73 weighted version.

Still the King of Beast
What is your opinion of this product?
This is an amazing product. Korg has done it again. A 16 track midi sequencer, sampler AND a 16 track audio recorder all in one package. With the exception of only having two inputs for audio recording, you really can't ask for anything more. Can't wait to see what Korg comes up with next.
