Korg gives the Kross 88 a grand piano sound with lavishly-sampled decays and three levels of velocity as well as reproducing the noises produced by the damper pedal, for authentic grand piano performance and sound. An upright piano sound is also featured, as well as distinctive sounds from Korg's famed SG-1D Sampling Grand and M1 Music Workstation.

The five classic electric piano sounds are just as expressive as the acoustic piano sounds; they also include effect settings, giving you a complete package of the performance-ready sounds that you want. In addition, careful attention has been paid to the drum sounds that are indispensable for song production on a workstation, making them realistic and fresh.

A wide variety of sounds
The PCM data in the Kross 88 keyboard is approximately twice as large as preceding models such as the X50 and the PS60. Korg has also improved the rock/jazz organ, strings, brass, and synth sounds. Other instruments such as toy piano, accordion, combo organ, church organ, and even vintage instruments such as a tape sampler, as well as bell-type sounds and the sounds you need for cutting-edge dance music and electronica make the Kross incredibly versatile.

Sound Selector makes it easy to find the sound you're looking for
While the Kross provides an extremely broad range of sounds, there are two dedicated dials that let you easily find the sound you need. First use the category dial to choose the broad category such as piano, electric piano, organ, bell, synths, basses, or strings. Then turn the select dial to find the sound you want. It's a quick way to focus on selecting the needed sounds without being distracted by sounds of another type.

Pro-quality EDS-i sound engine is built-in
The EDS-i sound engine is a high-quality sound engine distilled from the EDS/EDS-X sound engines found on Korg’s most advanced instruments. It allows you to use a total of seven effects simultaneously: five insert effects and two master effects. Ranging from standards such as delay, reverb, chorus, flanger, and rotary speaker, and also including amp modeling powered by Korg's proprietary ‘REMS’ modeling technology, and even a robot voice vocoder, you can choose from 134 different high-quality effects.

A lightweight body that runs on AA alkaline batteries
In spite of being packed with functionality, the Kross 88 is lightweight and highly portable. It packs a piano-touch hammer action keyboard into a mere 27.3 lbs. It is highly portable and lightweight, and can operate on an AC adapter or on six AA alkaline or nickel-metal hydride batteries.

The MIC IN jack (1/4 inch phone jack) lets you directly connect a mic. If you're a vocalist as well as a player, there's no need to obtain a separate mixer. In addition, there's a LINE IN jack (stereo 1/8 inch jack) for you to connect your audio player, giving you the option of performing along with the playback in a variety of situations on stage or anywhere else you go.

Quick Layer/Split function
Dedicated buttons are provided for Layer/Split settings. Start by selecting the first program you want to use; then press the dedicated button to enable Layer or Split. When this is on, a screen will appear in which you can choose the other sound and specify details such as the split point. Then simply write your settings and the layer/split sound will be saved as a Combination.

Stereo audio recorder allows you to overdub your performances and vocals
The built-in stereo audio recorder can record not only the performance of the Kross workstation itself, but also the sound of a mic or external input. You can play backing tracks that you created, or overdub onto them to create songs and demos. Audio can be imported and exported as WAV files using an SD card (separately sold), making it easy to exchange material with your computer.

Connects to your computer via USB
You can connect the Korg Kross 88 to your computer via USB for easy transfer of MIDI data. By using KROSS Editor and Plug-In Editor you can simultaneously view and edit large numbers of parameters on your computer, and use the Kross keyboard within your DAW as if it were a software synthesizer.

What is your opinion of this product?
Ok so even though $999 isn't a fortune to most people it is to me so I'm gonna give some detail for anyone who gets that. First I want to thank AMS for their credit installment program because my credit sucks and the program afforded me the opportunity to own this thing. Ok so I've owned a number of korgs in my day. And after some reflection realized all my 88 weighted digitals have been Korg (all used many years except this one :) being 4 in total. All I owned for years. I'm not an electronic producer or DJ I tend to lean toward the more tonal side old school scales and such. Blues jazz etc. I love electronic music and the sound and listen to it primarily. I love glass animals. Those guys kick ass. Anyways, so yes this thing is pretty cool. The action is about as muddy as every Korg I've had. By muddy I mean not crisp like a grand. I can still bounce on one key with my first and third pretty quick so it's something if you're keen on technique you can get used to with a little practice. It's no worse in it's own way than the old upright I doodle on at work. A little heavy and sluggish but perfectly acceptable and playable. Construction does feel really light but tough enough. Tech has obviously come a long way. My last Korg had like 4 sounds no speakers and weighed maybe 50lbs or more. The thing I love the most by far and am so stoked about is the sounds and sequencer. It has some really amazing sounds and drums and being able to find a kit that sounds great to build a beat with is a treat. When you add some sweet organ or electric piano it is just a jam fest. I can lose myself in it for hours. As a workstation it is straight forward. Easy to use. The tones are just great. And with some of the available combis I can even feel like an electronic producer for a bit. My biggest criticism is the buttons and overall layout doesnt look very modern. Kind of cheap and antiquated in appearance but durable enough. I would have no problem telling anyone whose looking for the weighted action and workstation capabilities that this is an amazing value. I debated and researched this purchase for a couple months debating on a controller with better action or a workstation. I went with this and am very happy.
