by Jon Remy from Dallas, TexasWhat an excellent piece of gear the Krome 61 is. It is ALL the bread-and-butter sounds you'll EVER need. I thought I would like the Kronos better, but, in fact, I like the Krome better. I have no n... read more [+]eed for KARMA and all the other "perks" the Kronos had to offer. The Krome will suit me just fine and I have a distilled version of the Kronos that weighs onlyk 15 pounds and sequences as well. An excellent deal for the price. The included editor software also lets you delve in deeper! close [-]

I previously owned a Korg TR-61 and I was very much dissatisfied with its overall built, sounds and interface. Korg always had a tradition of ... read more [+]having very thin and poor quality piano and EP presets which why I personally dislike the Korg SP series pianos.
But, I can confidently say that the piano and EP preset sounds on the Krome are really good and very detailed. In fact, u can even hear the sound of the hammers releasing as u play the higher octaves. This is a really great experience I must say at this price. Also, the strings, pads and synth sounds are really very good and very usable. But personally, I did not like the guitars, bass and brass section sounds as they lack depth and realism.
The keybed has Semi weighted action which is quite average and is play able but definitely not the best action. However, the touchscreen is really a big improvement over the previous generation and is really very quick in response. The user interface is really very simple and easy to navigate through patches and FX for searching, editing, etc.
Also the 16-track sequencer is really great and usin the touchscreen, its even simpler top edit tracks and save them upto expandable 32GB SDHC external memory card.
Overall, for the price, the Korg Krome is bang on the money and offers more features and better value for money than other keyboards in the same price range like Roland Juno-Gi and Yamaha MOX-6.
Highly recommended !! close [-]
When I first heard the Korg Krome would be slotted under the mighty Kronos, I figured there would be a lot of crompomises to meet this price point. Fortunately, I was wrong! The Krome is my workstation by day and my gigging axe by night. The flagship grand piano sound is an impressive 2+ gigabytes alone. It also gives me a fully featured onboard sequencer with responsive touch screen interface. The decisions for which features are on the touch screen and which are dedicated to buttons and knobs are well-thought out.
