Its racing-red gradient finish provides your first clue: This Kronos is special. The Korg Kronos Special Limited Edition synthesizer workstation rocks the new Italian Grand Library that made its debut with the Korg Grandstage. It also includes the preinstalled KApro Showcase with meticulously curated sounds from KApro, the company that designed more than 100 of the Kronos sound libraries. Of course, loaded with nine sound engines and infinite possibilities, the Kronos Special Limited Edition still delivers everything that makes Kronos a music creation powerhouse.
Loaded with amazing sounds, powerful performance tools, and everything you need to create master-quality tracks, there’s little wonder why Korg’s Kronos is the keyboard workstation of choice for A-list artists like Jordan Rudess and Derek Sherinian. Among its nine pro-quality sound engines, you’ll find everything from premium piano models to classic EPs and organs and a plethora of synths cultivated over decades of development. Between its tactile controls and oversize touchscreen, you couldn’t ask for an easier system to navigate, and since it’s all housed in a sleek aluminum body with classy wood ends, your Kronos is ready to travel wherever your next gig may be.
With its liquid sonic presence and gorgeously detailed resonance, the Italian Grand has captured the attention of piano luminaries from both the classical and jazz worlds, captivating audiences worldwide. For the Kronos Special Limited Edition, a world-class concert grand previously used in international competitions was optimized and sampled by Korg’s sampling experts.
The KApro Showcase includes orchestral strings that sing with emotion, as well as brass, woodwinds, choir, and phrases. It’s a best-of-the-best sound showcase from KApro — the people responsible for over 100 Korg sound libraries. The KApro Showcase collection unlocks the door to expanded sonic horizons.
From acoustic instruments to gritty analog synths, the Korg Kronos’s nine synthesis engines can provide every sound you need. Simply put, if you took any of these individual synth engines and loaded them into an independent keyboard, you’d have a perfectly legitimate instrument most professional performers would be happy to play. All put together, this multifaceted synthesis environment lets you access thousands of sounds and layer them into rich and engaging music beds. This lets you play deep and complex sounds and full instrumental arrangements, all without the need to switch presets or pre-record backing tracks. Check out these amazing synthesis engines!
How much time do you enjoy putting into getting great sounds from your keyboard that fit your playing style? If you’re like most of us, then the answer is “none.” That’s why keyboardists and composers here at Sweetwater love the Kronos. This amazing keyboard workstation features sounds that respond naturally, not only to playing dynamics but many other factors as well. From the first time you fire it up, sit down, and play, you’ll be in love with this amazing system.
All of this is only possible thanks to powerful synthesis technologies, many of which were developed specifically for the Kronos. Onboard you’ll find many signs of this tech, including solid-state storage and memory. That’s the driving force behind Korg’s Virtual Memory Technology, a flexible system that provides you with high polyphony as well as incredible unlooped samples. It also allows the Kronos to perform smooth sound transitions, so you can hold sustain notes while switching sounds or modes — just what you need for seamless transitions from one passage to the next.
More than just an amazing performance keyboard, the Korg Kronos is a complete 32-track music creation workstation. In addition to a robust 16-track sequencer, Korg gave their Kronos series keyboard the capacity to record up to 16 audio tracks as well. That means you get a complete studio-standard, 24-bit/48kHz recording system right inside your workstation!
Want to spice up your tracks? No problem! Your Kronos comes with an entire rack full of effects, each of which more than rivals dedicated standalone effects units. Since you can run up to 16 of these fantastic effects at once, it’s easy to enhance entire songs. And thanks to the Kronos’s Open Sampling System, you can even sample and resample any sounds you create. Talk about a great way to come up with amazing and unique new sounds.
