And only KORG boasts the finest sound-design team on the planet, so you can always sound your very best.

    Enhanced SGX-2 Grand Piano Sound Engine
    The KRONOS piano engine has always offered huge collections of non-looped/natural decay stereo samples, recorded for every key, with additional unique tools to customize the piano to your needs. Inheriting all of this SGX-1 functionality, the new enhanced SGX-2 Grand Piano engine introduces the new Berlin Grand piano to the existing deep German Grand and lively Japanese Grand. The Berlin Grand offers resonant piano sound with a striking sense of depth. 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.

    Great keyboard, but one significant problem
    What is your opinion of this product?
    The sound is incredible, but the whole key bed clicks when you play it, making it almost unusable for live work. Korg, will fix it free of charge, but it will take 6 weeks. I'm a working musician and 6 weeks is a long time to wait to get your board back. VERY fuss appointed in that respect.

    great sounds, but keyboard clicks sometjhing awful
    What is your opinion of this product?
    The sounds are great, key keys feel fine when you play them , but there is a very audible click every time you press a key, on every instrument, rendering the keyboard useless until i get it repaired. for 3300 dollars , I expected better.
