Korg has released version 2.1 operating system for the Kronos and Kronos X keyboards. The new version includes a more powerful CX-3 engine, with an updated effects section and enhanced amp model, rotary speaker, and vibrato chorus. A new bank of free organ sounds, the KRS-06, has been created by artists such as Keith Emerson, Larry Goldings, Rami Jaffee, and more to complement these updates.
OS 2.1 also includes a real-time graphic indication of rotary speaker speed, timbre track mute to more efficiently use polyphony, new mute button options for Combinations and Songs, external MIDI CC assignment to numerous control functions, and the ability to use the joystick to switch rotary speaker speed.
Both the new OS and soundbank are available as free downloads.
