Rich expressive power of the EDS-i sound engine
The high-quality EDS-i Enhanced Definition Synthesis-integrated sound engine is inherited from KORG’s professional synthesizers. You can use a total of seven effects units simultaneously: five insert and two master. Rich expressive power is available from the selection of 134 high-quality effects, including standard effects such as delay and reverb as well as amp modeling, vintage effect units, and even a vocoder.

Superb sampling function and a pad sampler

As a first in its class, the KROSS 2 is newly equipped with a unique sampling function that provides 16 playable pads. You can record the input from the LINE IN jack and assign a stereo sample of up to 14 seconds to each pad. Up to four pads can be triggered simultaneously. You can edit the sample waveform using functions such as start/end loop point settings and normalize, and even resample within the KROSS 2, allowing you to perform extensive sampling without requiring any additional equipment. Long audio files from an SD card can also be assigned to these pads.

Straightforward access to the sounds and functions you need
It's easy to get around on KROSS 2, thanks to a user-friendly layout. The panel of the KROSS 2 has been further improved since the first KROSS, ensuring that anyone can quickly access desired sounds and functions from the enormous range of choices.

Major bang 4 your buck!!

Product Review

Korg has yet to do me wrong. High quality sounds in a beautiful chassis. (I got the white one) It's not cheap, but for a shade under $800 this is a great workstation! Not only the great sound, but a sampler, sequencer, AND you can record tracks all on this keyboard! Everything you need with all the inputs/outputs you need and even a vocoder. I use mine seamlessly with my multitrack and MPC and I'm so glad I chose this piece, and I'm not getting paid for this, haha. I just like it that much.

Hmmmmmm some good, some bad

Product Review

The keyboard has some great features but it also lacks others specially for the price. The good: The size and the weight; it is such a light keyboard, the keyboard action is good, the onboard sampler, it’s easy to use and assigning one shots or loops to the pads it’s easy and straight forward, the feature I like the most is the ability to record an audio file to an SD card so I pretty much use it as a notepad for ideas? This is done very easy and it will also record from the audio inputs. It has a decent amount of sounds. And you can split n layer sounds easily The bad: The acoustic pianos are weak to my taste compared to other keyboards incl low end Yamaha models, (I’ve heard PSRs with better pianos) also the FX are lacking, you can use either reverb or delay not both and neither has quality I wouldn’t use it on a real recording, I’d did manage to make the piano sound ok with reverb but I wouldn’t use this keyboard on a real recording, I use it to sketch ideas while traveling.

Light weight but packs a punch!!

Product Review

So I got this board specifically for my love for Korg and the powerful punch it delivers while being so so compact! I have found the perfect fit to be my 2nd next to my Kronos on stage! The sounds are rich and full...Favorites function is very similar to the set list on Kronos so on stage, a gig will be a breeze! You won’t go wrong with this purchase! It’s worth it on so many levels!

I simply can't recommend it more
