Korg Kronos 2

If you’re reading this blog, you probably already know what the KORG Kronos is. Here’s a no-nonsense guide to what’s actually different in the new KORG Kronos, minus any fluff about the old one that hasn’t really changed.

  • SGX Berlin piano: a whopping 9GB Steinway style concert grand piano with unique una corda ‘soft pedal’ samples. Perfect for delicate performances & soundtrack work.
  • New ‘sounds from famous songs’ preset banks. A great starting point for function band players and cover-lovers.
  • Feature showcase preset banks from KaPro. If you really want to show off the sounds available to the Kronos, this is will blow people’s tiny minds.
  • Touch & drag on-screen editing: change parameters directly from the touch-screen, rather than selecting the parameter and fiddling knobs.
  • Improved ‘Set List’ mode: Change text size, colours and layout. Super useful if you’re the forgetful type and need an occasional lyric-reminder.
  • On-screen metering: No more guessing what channels are firing in the ‘Combi’ & ‘Sequencer’ modes.
  • Laminate wood side panels.
  • Higher quality on-chassis text.
  • Gold-plated audio sockets.

There. That’s it. It might not seem like a very dramatic overhaul, but to be fair the original Kronos was an absolute beast.
