New light-touch keyboard for effortless, nimble playing

Korg’s all-new light-touch keyboard makes it easy to play anything from rapid organ licks to synth phrases to glissandi. The mechanism of the keyboard itself has been redesigned so that the velocity is easier to control than on existing light-touch keyboards, even when playing complex chords or difficult phrases. The box-shaped keys share their look with Korg’s premium RH3 action, while providing the faster playing feel of a synth keyboard. Since the keyboard is semi-weighted, it’s also perfect for playing piano and electric piano in any style.

Now 14 lbs. lighter than Kronos2-88 for increased portability

The new keyboard makes the instrument markedly lighter than Kronos2-88 with Korg’s RH3 action, making transport and read more setup much simpler. At under 19 kg. /40 lbs., bringing a full 88-note Kronos to a show just became more convenient.

New OS v3.1 includes new Quick Layer/Split functions

Along with its dynamic new keyboard, Kronos LS features the latest Kronos OS - v3.1 - which puts Quick Layer and Quick Split functions right at users’ fingertips. Effortlessly create layers such as piano and strings, or splits such as electric piano and bass, effortlessly. Numerous additional OS refinements have also been made to further ensure stability and a stress-free performance environment.

A new look to complement its new feel

With its luxurious dark umber aluminum body and beautifully crafted sunburst wood side panels, Kronos LS is designed to present as beautifully as it plays. Kronos LS offers an elegant look that’s perfect for home, stage, and studio.
