Amazing Keyboard

I have been playing for 30 years now. I have played numerous keyboards/workstations (Roland X6, Yamaha Motif to name a few) over that time and this one tops all of them. The samples in this are great. I really wanted a killer grand piano sound and this provides that. The keybed feels great. Perfect action and fulfills my needs for the few bands I perform in. Thank you Korg and Sweetwater for an amazing instrument.

An amazing value,

I play professional blues, and for years Iv'e used a Yamaha ES7 which was damaged in a wreck. This Korg is not in that catagory but is lighter with a smaller footprint, plays beautifully with an easy to use interface and MOST importantly, SOUNDS AWESOME. The acoustic pianos, the electric pianos,..are spot on. I'm EXTREMELY picky about those two catagories, and this machine delivered. Pretty awesome Hammond sounds as well, (But you'll never pry away my SK1!) Just a few days before, I had ordered a Kurzweil 76 key unit for about the same price. It only had 128 sounds and EVERY one of them was USELESS! I returned it within 12 hours. This Korg Krome...a keeper!

Krome 73 Killing It

Ok, I've owned a Triton LE, a TR88, an MO8, a Motif, and a few of the old school Alesis QS series keyboards. With the exception on the Motif I know these are all on the lower end of the quality synthesizers. The Krome is pretty simple to use after a couple hours of playing with it. Has great effects and in my opinion, the best simulated organs I've ever heard.

The Right Choice

As a gigging musician I was looking for a high-quality keyboard that is easy to haul and operate. I compared the Korg Krome with the Yamaha MOXF line. While initially partial to the Yamaha (based on previous experiences) I decided to go with the Korg Krome 73. The reason that tipped the scale was 73 keys. The board is incredibly intuitive to operate. It comes with a tutorial CD which is also on youtube. So far, I have had no need to using it. I haven't used the sequencer yet. I enjoy the pragmatic setup: you can write and create your own settings in a user bank. I use the transpose feature often (we play half-step down). The sound bank is amazing and the quality of the sounds superb. The color touch screen seemed like a bit of a gimmick to me initially, but has proven to be invaluable. Once you figure out how to navigate through the menu, it's fast and intuitive. The upper menu tab takes a little getting used to (I use my nail). The keys play well; although this is a very personal experience, they feel very natural and not cheap at all. The board takes a while to boot up, I assume that is to be expected with so much stuff under the proverbial hood. Finally, she looks good...
