Korg Kronos 7 Music Workstation Keyboard

Witness the NEW KRONOS. Created by KORG to satisfy today's most demanding, accomplished performers and producers -- as well as tomorrow's visionary leaders -- the 2015 KRONOS embodies over 50 years of artistic vision and production expertise. With nine distinct synthesis engines and a complete suite of performance and productions tools, KRONOS is simply the most versatile synthesizer ever made.

KRONOS restores the magic, the thrill, and the promise that only a visionary new instrument can provide. And KRONOS delivers on that promise. Every resources and technology of service to the modern musician has been refined, perfected, and integrated into a single instrument, and is available on demand. Multiple state-of-the-art sound generation techniques represent the pinnacle of software realization. Onboard effects open the door to processing any internal or external audio source with dazzling results. Multitrack audio and MIDI recording deliver efficient studio operations in a mobile platform. Hands-on hardware includes an assignable control surface, dual joysticks, ribbon controller, top-of-the line keyboard action, and KORG's revolutionary tap-and-drag color TouchView(TM) display. Best of all, KRONOS integrates all of these music-making resources into a single instrument in ways that no software setup or hardware platform can rival.

KRONOS easily delivers everything you'd expect, plus many things you've only dreamed of. Set List mode keeps all of your custom settings and performance notes organized in the display for on-the-fly selection. Smooth Sound Transitions eliminate note and effect dropouts when switching sounds or modes. Connect virtual patch cables, select sounds, plus edit envelopes and sequences--all using the eight-inch color Touch View display. Add to that advanced sequencing, KARMA, and Drum Track composition tools. Enjoy exclusive KORG wave sequencing, MS-20 filtering and the impossibly-rich Polysix chorus. 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.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The best keyboard in the universe...What else could one ask for?"
Overall: Nine synthesis engines that will cause most synthesis experts heads to explode! I can spend a lifetime just understanding the amazing level of control and ease of use of the various synthesis types. From HD-1 to AL-1, the MOD-7 and so on, you have vintage and hybrid synthesis types that should leave you with and immense palette of sonic options to choose from. I love everything about the KRONOS but behold, the synthesis depth is a deep universe if you want to create your own unique, mind boggling sounds. Nothing out there holds a candle to the pristine tones, the amount of power coming out of the amps and myriad of insert effects types. There is nothing like a KORG pad...The crisp nature just takes you out of this world...I was thinking about a Virus TI as an addon to my studio, but then again, what's the point. This thing can do everything any other bread and butter synth can do, but take it to another level that cannot be beat. I think KORG had outdone itself for years to come with the KRONOS. I have owned all of their synths since the TRITON rackmount series and a few worskstation models prior and have always loved the consistency of the workflow. If you don't understand the KORG way of doing things, you might get a bit overwhelmed. But once you learn the flow, everything falls into place. The only thing I'm a bit disappointed about is the lack of knowledge about the various forms of synthesis this thing is capable of. There are ways to create great sounds but for some reason that is being obfuscated from the public. I just wished the masters at KORG would give special synthesis tutorials on all of their engines. The reason they do not do that is probably because there are a number of sound designers out there making a buck off the sacred knowledge. This leaves the average user searching for answers on their own...Still I find it a nice journey to embark on for the rest of our KRONOSCOPIC life...
