Offering full-length, unlooped samples of every key for a spectacular piano sound, the KROME Music Workstation redefines your expectations for an instrument in this class. Taking its name from the Greek word meaning "colour," KROME is the new standard for sonic excellence in a gigging musician's keyboard, providing a limitless palette of sound to bring vivid inspiration your music. Introducing the KROME Music Workstation.

The Krome 73-Key Music Workstation by Korg features a wide selection of sounds, including piano, electric piano, dynamic drum kits, 640 programs and 288 combinations. The 73-key semi-weighted natural touch keyboard provides a feel and response ideal for any style of piano playing.

In addition to Korg's well-proven workstation features, KROME features a carefully chosen selection of the top sounds available today for bread-and-butter keyboard instruments such as piano and electric piano, as well as vital and dynamic drum kits, giving you the best of the basics. These highly usable piano, electric piano, and drum sounds by themselves set KROME apart from any other keyboard in its class. With sound quality and features normally found in much more expensive instruments, KROME aspires to set a whole new value standard, and become a unique and irreplaceable partner for real-world musicians.

Krome features an onboard 16-track sequencer. The Auto Song Setup function starts recording immediately at the press of a button. Each Template Song assigns genre-appropriate sounds to sequencer tracks with pre-routed effects. Korg's Cue List enables quick arranging with Realtime Pattern/Play Recording. Any necessary edits or changes can be made using the convenient piano-roll editing.

Krome connects to your computer via USB to easily transfer MIDI data. An SD card slot is also available to help you manage Krome's data files. The Krome Editor and Krome Plug-In Editor allow you to edit your Krome settings from a computer and/or integrate it as a software synthesizer in your DAW.

The KROME, KORG's premium standard in music workstations, is now available in a new eagerly-awaited colour. With superb sound that overturns expectations for its class and a stylish new platinum colour, this model is the perfect way for you to stand out in your music production or on stage.

A limited number of KROME Platinum units will be sold.
