"Simply The Best"

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
With its vast feature set and professional quality, no other keyboard can compete. For studio or live, this is the one that gets it done right, and with ease. There is a learning curve for the more advanced functions, but as with any truly professional tool, this should be expected. You will not "tap out" this machine... it will deliver the highest quality and permit you to use it to it's absolute fullest extent without a hick-up.
Sound
Audio quality remains high quality, even when running 16 midi tracks and 16 audio tracks simultaneously. With the vast sound library, any style of music is game for the Kronos. Nuances of each instrument make the realism of the Kronos top notch.
Features
I use this board in studio and live, and the features for both of these environments deliver. For instance, when I play live, my live playing is coming out of the Kronos in stereo on the Left and Right outputs. This is usually a Combination of several internal sounds. At the same time, I have a studio recorded backing track that the Kronos plays under the band. This audio comes out of the Kronos in stereo on the 1 & 2 outputs. At the same time, I have a click track coming out of the Kronos on output 3. I assign these tracks and sounds to the Set-List screen so I can access any of them at any time. If I am playing a piano sound and want to switch to an organ, the Kronos will cross-fade these sounds automatically so that there is a smooth transition, rather than the sudden cutoff that all the other keyboards have. To list all of the very useful and practical features here would turn into an owners manual, and that's already been written by Korg.
Ease of Use
The Kronos fully implements into any studio or live environment. As stated earlier, there is a learning curve for the more advanced functions, but with the touch screen, getting what you want is usually just a click or two away.
Quality
Korg quality on the Kronos is superb. It is professionally designed and will last for years and years, even with heavy use. My last professional Korg board lasted 11 years before I let it go. That was 11 years of constant performances and studio sessions.
Value
At the typical sale price, there is no better value for your money. This board could be priced much higher, and the professional players would happily pay in order to have this tool.
Manufacturer Support
I have never had to deal with Korg directly. This is because their product line is well made and lasts.
The Wow Factor
The Kronos means business, and looks like it means business. Classy, efficient, robust with plenty of LPD (Lights Per Dollar) *heh heh*

WOW, Jordan Rudess Dream Theater you are spot on with this Korg Kronos. This thing is amazing. Out of the box onto my rack of 3 and playing without reading a thing. SOUNDS best I have ever heard of any keyboard. The other two keys Yamaha Motif 7 and Rolands Juno DS 88 have there spot and quality but the Korg outstanding. I am a writer and multi instrument player with drums being my main. This Korg will take up my time I had so much fun in an hour. Yes it's 3700 make payments enjoy the very best. I created sounds I have heard Jordan express in Dream Theater and still have not read the Manuel. the 88 hammered keys smooth and awsome. Well worth the money. I can make up Beats to sell that pay back for the payment. I am 55 years old and this was my 55th Birthday gift to me. It is so well built. I am looking for a hard case to carry it in as I travel to play. WOW thank you zZounds for the pay as you play payment plan the two day delivery you guys are awesome this was my first purchase and great experience. I will say again don't cheat yourself take the time spend the money BUY a KORG KRONOS 8 you will be so happy you did. I am a Beginner with KeyBoards 7 years and this will be my retirement addition in my studio for sure. 28 years in Education teaching Criminal Law yes I look forward to spending the next 20 years mastering like JORDAN RUDESS of Dream Theater he uses in every concert. Thanks again ZZOUNDS you guys are 10/10 GET YOURS TODAY and start living and having FUN.

"Kronos 88 "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Awesome keyboard. Just got this keyboard today. I have a lot of reading to figure out how to use this powerhouse. Beautiful sounds and looks. Keyboard is heavy. I'm looking forward to using this as my main board and backing up with my Krome 88 and King Korg. All of these keyboards I purchased from zZounds. Awesome customer service and really cool people to work with when making a purchase of any type of gear. I highly recommend Korg if your looking for a serious professional workstation.
