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.

Available in black or the limited edition platinum-colored workstation with dark colored side panels. This new model shines beautifully on stage under the spotlight. For serious musicians, this instrument emanates a special aura of superior quality.

Kronos Highlights:

• 9 Sound engines, each offering a unique sound-creation technology
• 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

• Set List mode: Organize the Programs, Combis, and Songs you need to perform your set in a single, easy-to-select screen including performance notes!

The Kronos 88 is simply amazing. I?ve owned 30 + keyboards over the last 35 years, from Korg, Roland AND Yamaha. The Kronos is KING. No comparison.

I pre-ordered this beast and got it before the price hike... (Paid $4800 taxes in, new with warranty) and it's been a beast. Taken it on a few tours, regular band practices, in and out of the studio and it's been an absolute pleasure. I miss the free-wheel aspect from the Oasys with the LED's and such, but it's a minor gripe. Higher res touch-screen, lots of engines, simple to edit but definitely has a learning curve. This this handles everything I throw at it and then some. It's expensive, yes. It's a beast, yes. It does everything I need and more, and I can see myself having a Kronos in my live/studio setup for a long time. Backwards compatibility with Oasys files as well is a great plus.
