If you’re even the slightest bit keyboard savvy, you’re certainly familiar with Korg‘s long lineage of stellar keyboards. From the genre-defining (M1 and Wavestation) to the grandiose (OASYS), Korg models have continually pushed boundaries in the area of synths and keyboards. Well, 2011 is no exception, as Korg has just unleashed Kronos, the latest workstation to blow past the status quo.
Pulling from a wellspring of past technologies while simultaneously breaking new ground, Kronos is for keyboardists who are looking for ultimate flexibility in an elegant, seamlessly integrated package. Imagine what you can do when you have access to everything from acoustic to electric to analog sounds, from vintage to modern – a total of 12GB of sample date, including Korg’s best acoustic piano ever! And this is really just the tip of the iceberg. To make sure you get the most of Kronos right out of the box, Korg enlisted the help of such keyboard luminaries as Jordan Rudess, George Duke, and Frank McComb to create top-notch preset sounds. And even all of this doesn’t complete the Kronos picture!
Kronos is endowed with KARMA, which gives you access to instantly created phrases, drum grooves, and backing tracks. There are a huge color touchscreen, a new Setlist feature, and an amazing nine synth engines! And, you’ve got an open sampling system to bring in sounds from the outside world, as well as a 16-track MIDI sequencer to assemble your next masterpiece, and audio recording for bringing the whole production to life. There is certainly a lot going on under the hood, and we haven’t even really scratched the surface here. Call your Sales Engineer for the whole Kronos story!
