For nearly half a century, Korg has set the standard for technical innovation, leadership, and superior sound. Korg has created entire categories of musical products, and has produced some of the top-selling synthesizers and keyboard instruments ever; the instruments favored by musicians around the globe. In 1988, Korg defined the workstation category with the revolutionary M1. In 2011, Korg redefined and reimagined the music workstation, revolutionizing the capabilities of the hardware instrument and exceeding the demands of the modern player with the Kronos Music Workstation.

Kronos Highlights:

• 9 Sound engines, each offering a unique sound-creation technology (see list below)
• 16-part Combis allow all engines to function together in perfect harmony; Dynamic Voice Allocation keeps the polyphony high.

• A revolutionary sample playback system aided by a fast SSD (Solid State Disk) provides high polyphony and massive, ultra-long, and unlooped samples; offering unheard of performance from a hardware instrument

The Kronos allows you convert your ideas into reality. If you are upgrading from previous Korg workstations you will be impressed blown away with the advances they have made. If you are new to Korg workstations you will need the manual, YouTube and a pocket scientist. Live performances are a breeze with 'set list' mode as the colour touch screen makes it easy to organize you sets and categories. Quick split makes it fast and easy when jamming or a new song is added mid gig. The crazy amount of polyphony makes it possible to have multiple key and velocity splits eliminating at least one other keyboard from your rig. Tons of options for the live player. Incredible sequencer: integrated sampler, effects and external control make this instrument one of the most powerful workstations in this world, if you can think of up Kronos can do it. The sounds: The integrated SSD drive stores a multitude of incredibly realistic sounds. You can actually hear the felt from the damper touching the strings in the pianos, the list goes on. I could go on and on about it but I have to get back to playing mine! Try one out in the store and chances are you will be leaving with it.

Wanted a Kronos for a while. Watching Youtube demos over and over, I just had to get one. Tons of content to get lost in, including some sounds and sequences from well known songs. Played it for some family members and got instant approval. Karma was a big selling point for me. That being said, its not a synth you can just plug in and let fly and create a song. There are a lot of complexities in this board which will require you to have the manual (parameter guide) handy. You will need it. I needed it, and I don't need manuals often. Its over 1000 pages. But the level of customization is amazing and I haven't even scratched the surface. It will take time to learn how to use it to its full potential. I went with Long & McQuade's in house financing and it was incredibly easy. They have my business for a long time to come.
