Available with 61, 73 or 88 keys, new synth offers around 2GB of PCM RAM and a doubled SSD capacity of 62 GB.
Korg has unveiled the Kronos X music workstation, a synthesizer equipped with nine sound engines.
Available in 61, 73 or 88-key versions, the synth offers around 2GB of PCM RAM and a doubled SSD capacity of 62 GB, which allows for huge sound library expansions. Its User Sample Bank lets players create their own large sample libraries.
It also features various artist signature sounds made by top musicians, 16-part combos, which allow all nine engines to function together harmoniously, and Dynamic Voice Allocation keeps the polyphony high.
Users can access up to 16 premium-quality effects at once, an on-board sequencer offers 16 MIDI tracks and 16 audio tracks (24-bit, 48kHz recording quality) and an Open Sampling System lets the player sample and resample instantly from any mode.
The nine sound engines are as follows:
- SGX-1 Premium Piano
- EP-1 MDS (Electric Piano)
- CX-3 Tonewheel (Organ)
- HD-1 High Definition Synthesizer
- AL-1 Analog Synthesizer
- MS-20EX Legacy Analog Collection
- PolysixEX Legacy Analog Collection
- MOD-7 Waveshaping VPM Synthesizer
- STR-1 Plucked String Synthesizer
The original Kronos was released in 2011.
