The Korg Kronos 2 61 Note Music Workstation delivers the ultimate in synth workstation power in a portable package that is ideal for studio or stage. If you need sophistication to go anywhere, the Kronos 2 is definitely the powerhouse for you.

9 built in synth engines

The Korg Kronos 2 61 Note Music Workstation gives you the power of 9 world class synthesizers in one unit. Each of these delivers the best in available technology to accurately reproduce their specific instrument. This includes real time control, effects, modulation routing and masses of variables that will cater to your sound designing needs.

For most players, one of the most important sounds they will use is the piano. The Kronos 2 utilises the enhanced SGX-2 Grand Piano sound engine to offer up a huge collection of painstakingly sampled German and Japanese grands. All piano's have every key sampled separately and contain enhancements such as sympathetic string resonance to give you a piano experience unlike any other.

Other engines of the Kronos 2 include the EP-1 engine for rich, energetic and mellow electronic piano's, the CX-3 engine for precise tonewheel organs, a HD-1 synthesis engine for mind-blowing textures as well as other engines for legacy synth, orchestral and drums/percussion.

The KARMA engine

A pioneering technology at its inception in 2001 KARMA has matured to bring even more functionality to the Korg Kronos 2, such as: Wave-Sequencing, Note Mapping and 8 scenes per layer. This in addition to its unparalleled ability to produce phrases, drum grooves and full backing tracks based on how you play taking backing tracks to a level of sophistication never heard before.

Major expression

With such innovative sound production, you would expect to have a level of control and expression to compliment the power within the Kronos 2... And boy do you get it! Korg's flagship RH3 weighted hammer action is the perfect balance between functionality and design giving you the ultimate acoustic playing experience.

The addition of a plethora of assignable knobs, vector joystick, ribbon controller and assignable switches give you the power to change variable aspects of your performance on the fly with natural ease. The built in 800x600 TouchView graphical user interface screen gives you the ability to fly through menus and presets to get to the sound or function that you want without delay.

Powerful sequencing

The powerful sequencer in the Kronos 2 61 is capable of recording up to 16 MIDI and 16 audio tracks. This gives you the power of a small recording studio at your fingertips. All audio recording is fully editable and the huge 60GB internal SSD (expandable to 2 drives) means you can record many pieces for future performances.

Finally, the Kronos 2 61 comes with huge analog and digital connectivity including optical, USB and full MIDI capability as well as balanced and unbalanced audio connections, so whatever your performance or recording set-up, the Kronos 61 will integrate without issue.
