Nine Distinct Sound Engines

korg kronos 2 61 key

Effective ControlEach of the individual KRONOS sound engines are eminently designed to work as a stand-alone synthesizer. Each one displays the cutting-edge technology available for that type of sound creation.

Exacting programming parameters, real-time controllers, integrated effects, and assignable modulation routings provide amazing control for the creating custom edits or for the ambitious sound designer.

Enhanced SGX-2 Grand Piano Sound Engine

korg kronos 2 61 key

Greater FunctionalityThe KRONOS piano engine has always provided huge librarys of non-looped/natural decay stereo samples, recorded for every key, with additional unique tools to customize the piano to your needs.

Using all of this SGX-1 functionality, the new enhanced SGX-2 Grand Piano engine introduces the new Berlin Grand piano to the existing deep German Grand and lively Japanese Grand. The Berlin Grand provides resonant piano sound with a striking sense of depth.

Massive Sound Selection

korg kronos 2 61 key

Carefully craftedKRONOS features thousands of sounds, created using multiple synthesis modes and calling upon over approximately 21 GB of preset waveform data covering a range of genres. Each one has been carefully crafted by the KORG Sound Design team.

The internal SSD offers a generous 62*GB capacity, providing huge space for user sampling or downloading KRONOS Sound Libraries. These optional expansion KRONOS Sound Libraries add new professionally programmed sounds—without requiring any new hardware.

Innovative Set List Mode

korg kronos 2 61 key

Seamless PerformanceKRONOS can organize all of the resources needed to get through a song—or a set—using the Set List mode. Here, the TouchView display can host 16 color-coded touch-screen buttons which can each call up the appropriate Preset instantly, Combination, or Sequence—regardless of mode.

The Set List mode even adds a nine-band graphic EQ, allowing the overall tone to be shaped to match the venue. Connecting a USB computer keyboard makes it simple to enter text and numeric values.

Color TouchView Display

korg kronos 2 61 key

Now With Touch-Drag CapabilityAt the core of the KRONOS is KORG’s enormous eight-inch (800 x 600 pixel) SVGA color TouchView display. Along with simply selecting a sound or choosing a parameter with the touch of a finger, the enhanced Touch-Drag ability allows more precise control of parameter values. Interactive instruments and panel graphics provide the ability to do everything from adjusting the lid of a grand piano to connecting patch cable on a semi-modular synthesizer model. The TouchView display also features a convenient new Search Function, so you can search for (and preview) sounds based on their titles.


korg kronos 2 61 key

A must have for your performanceThe revolutionary algorithmic music technology, first found on KORG’s Karma Music Workstation in 2002, produces complex phrases, drum grooves and complete backing tracks. Based on the notes and chords you play, and the easy operations you perform with the knobs, sliders, and switches, KARMA can generate musical effects that exceed your expectations.

Now in its greatly-improved second generation and offering features like KARMA Wave-Sequencing, Note Mapping and 8 scenes per layer, KARMA is standard equipment on your new KRONOS. It will expand your song idea, and will be an huge part of your live performances.

Drum Tracks

korg kronos 2 61 key

Natural Drum CharacteristicsThis function that plays drum patterns automatically was part of the highly acclaimed M3 music workstation/synthesizer introduced in 2007. KRONOS is the latest KORG Workstation to offer the Drum Tracks features.

Debuted in 2007, Drum Tracks can create everything from a simple reference beat to an outline rhythm track on up to a complete drum track for your music productions. Expanded for use in the KRONOS, Drum Tracks now includes professional drum performances, and is ready and able to generate grooves that capture the natural feel of a professional drummer, whilst challenging the possibilities of stand-alone drum machines.

Open Sampling System

korg kronos 2 61 key

More Convenient Than EverKORG’s Open Sampling System means the KRONOS can quickly sample an external audio source, no matter if the KRONOS is in the Program, Combination, or Sequencer modes. The Open Sampling Mode can even resample the performance of the KRONOS itself. The user sample bank, which adds to the convenience of the EXs sample library to user samples, allows custom samples to be loaded and played, taking advantage of the gigantic SSD capacity.

AIFF, WAV, SoundFont 2.0, and AKAI S1000/3000 format samples can be loaded into memory suing USB memory. You can also use a USB Ethernet adapter to exchange large amounts of sample data with your computer at high speed. Instruments or samples that you've previously created on your PC can be used to construct a music production setup based on just the KRONOS.

16-Track MIDI Sequencer

korg kronos 2 61 key

16-Track Audio RecorderKRONOS includes a sequencer/recording section that provides both 16 MIDI tracks plus 16 audio tracks; a great resource for putting together an impressive performance or a astounding production. MIDI sequencing makes capture ideas, inspiration, and pro-quality phrases using the KARMA, Drum Track, or RPPR (Realtime Pattern Play/Recording) functions incredibly easy.

The 16-track audio recorder captures up to four tracks of 16-bit/24-bit uncompressed data at a sampling rate of 48 kHz simultaneously. Play along with recorded tracks, add effects, and then resample the KRONOS itself and place the resampled WAV files directly in a track. When completing your tracks, feel free to use mixer automation and editing functions such as copy, paste, and normalize to get the results you want. Plug in a USB CD-burner and assemble your album directly from the TouchView display.

16 Onboard Effect Processors

korg kronos 2 61 key

Master Your PerformanceKRONOS includes 16 internal effects to add impact to your sonic creations. Each of the 12 Insert effects can be applied to seperate or multiple timbres in a combination, or to individual or multiple tracks of the sequencer.

Two Master effects can also be applied to sends 1/2, and two Total effects can be applied to all tracks at the final stage of the sound. A separate three-band EQ is provided for every timbre, for every sequencer track, and for every audio track for adjusting subtle tonal balances or for creatively modifying the overall sound.

Advanced Control Surface

korg kronos 2 61 key

Seamless & User-friendly Along with the parameters accessible directly from the TouchView display, KRONOS also provides an extensive selection of realtime controllers to enhance any performance and to assist navigation. A four-way joystick, ribbon controller, and two assignable switches are found on the left of the keyboard, with an additional Vector joystick nearby.

Above the keyboard, nine sliders, eight knobs and a number of switches offer realtime interaction with features at the heart of the KRONOS’ impressive sound. The damper pedal input jack supports half-damping, providing one more level of piano realism. Along with the damper pedal jack, there are also two assignable pedal inputs, one footpedal type and one footswitch style.

User-Friendly, Performance Enhancing Features

USB/MIDI Host PortsAny class-compliant USB-MIDI controller can be connected directly to the KRONOS. By connecting a KORG pad-equipped USB MIDI controller (nanoPAD, nanoPAD2, padKONTROL), pads 1 through 8 of the controller are automatically mapped to the virtual chord pad function of the KRONOS, allowing them to be used to play drums, trigger chords, or to switch chords in chord mode.

Smooth sound transitionsWhen you switch program sounds during a performance to get ready for the next section, or when you switch from Program mode to Combi mode, the sound that's currently being output is always given priority and its effects are maintained during the program change, providing a seamless transition with no dropouts. This function has also earned plenty high praise from pro musicians.

Natural Touch Semi-Weighted ActionFor performers who prefer the ultra-quick response of a synthesizer keyboard, need to focus on organ performances, or are searching for the ultimate in portability, the KRONOS 61-key model is equipped with a lightweight and expressive semi-weighted synthesizer action.
