Korg Krome-88 Keyboard Workstation at a Glance:
Natural Weighted Hammer Action for exceptional playability
As your hands explore the Krome-88's Natural Weighted Hammer Action keybed, you'll be surprised at the piano-like response. The action of the keys has that "just right" comfort, with a heavier touch in the lowest registers that becomes progressively lighter as you get higher.
A wide range of top-notch instruments and sounds
While the interface of the Krome-88 is streamlined and intuitive, it boasts a wide range of amazing-sounding instruments and drums from its big brother, the Kronos workstation. You get 640 instruments and sound, and 288 combination presets that are sure to inspire. And speaking of inspiration, you can also take advantage of 900 arp patterns and over 600 drum grooves to get your productions going.
A powerful DAW, and plug-in support for your computer-based DAW
The Krome-88's powerful 16-track sequencer, plus five insert effects, two master effects, and per-track EQ, means you can create amazing music with nothing but this workstation. But thanks to the free downloadable plug-in editor software, you can use the Krome-88 as a plug-in in your computer-based DAW too. So whether you prefer to work on a keyboard workstation, produce on a computer with Krome sounds, or a combination of both workflows, you'll appreciate the flexibility and intuitiveness of the Krome-88.

A Lot of Sounds & Features for the Price
by Ray Champion from Imlay City, MI USAI am a one-man-band solo performer and this keyboard is perfect for the stage. The number of sounds in each category are numerous. The differences in some may be subtle but it's nice to have the choic... read more [+]e.

The number one defining characteristic in a keyboard for me is the quality of the sounds and this instrument has them. The touch screen editing is terrific & makes it a lot easier and more intuitive than other keyboards I've had. I like that you can combine up to 16 programs (voices) in one combination patch. It's easy to mute or play an instrument on the fly so i don't need as many "setups". Just like any keyboard of this quality there is a learning curve. Some of the editing features may not be where you'd expect them to be in the table of contents but the search box helps to locate them. I've been accustomed to a different keyboard maker for many years and this is my introduction to Korg. I'm sure I'll enjoy the Krome for many years to come. 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.
way over my head
by Michael from Bar Harbor, Mainegreat sounds but that's where it ends. I've owned lots of keyboards and workstations, this one by far is the most obtuse to get around on. I'll be years learning it if I don't ditch it out of frustr... read more [+]ation. Not a performance keyboard by any means, no quick on the fly adjustments, no tweaking without digging into pages of parameters and settings. I wish this were simpler and more intuitive. In the hands of a skilled keyboard programer, this would be a formidable tool. Probably great for an advanced home production studio, but not a gig-able axe. close [-]
