Built-in expansion PCM memoryThe sound quality of KORG synthesizers is backed by world class musicians around the world. The enhanced KROSS 2 extends polyphony from 80 to 120 voices, and dramatically improves the number of internal programs from 809 to 1,075 programs.

The KROSS 2 also now provides 128 MB of built-in expansion PCM memory. By selecting from optional libraries that will be released following KROSS 2, you can expand KROSS 2’s internal sounds to meet the needs of your performing style or situation.

EDS-i Sound Engine

korg kross 2-61 black

Superb Sampling Function & Pad SamplerThe high-quality EDS-i Enhanced Definition Synthesis-integrated sound engine is taken from KORG’s professional synthesizers. You can use up to seven effects units simultaneously: five insert and two master.

Rich expressive power is available from the selection of 134 high-quality effects, including standard effects such as delay and reverb as well as amp modeling, vintage effect units, and even a vocoder. As a first in its class, the KROSS 2 is newly equipped with a unique sampling function that provides 16 playable pads. You can record the input from the LINE IN jack and assign a stereo sample of up to 14 seconds to each pad.

Up to four pads can be triggered at the same time and you can edit the sample waveform using functions such as start/end loop point settings and normalize, and also resample within the KROSS 2, enabling you to perform extensive sampling without requiring any additional equipment. Long audio files from an SD card can also be assigned to these pads.

Simple & Easy Access

korg kross 2-61 black

Straight to sounds & functions you needThanks to a user-friendly layout, it's easy to navigate around KROSS 2. The panel has been further improved since the original KROSS, making sure that anyone can quickly access the sounds and functions they want from the huge range of options.

Realtime control sectionThe new realtime control section allows you to directly control KROSS 2’s main parameters without having to navigate through a complex menu. In addition to realtime control of the sounds and effects, and simple editing of programs, you can use the knobs to easily control the vocoder settings or adjust the tempo of the arpeggiator and sequencer.

Favorites functionThe favorite function lets you save frequently-used programs and combinations and recall them with a single touch, it has even been expanded to allow 128 favorite locations, twice the number of the first generation of KROSS. This function is ideal for live players that need quick access to a specialized set of sounds on stage.

Quick layer/splitThe layer/split function, which enables you to layer two sounds or assign separate sounds to the left and right regions of the keyboard, is now easier to set up, thanks to a dedicated quick layer/split button.

Category dialA category dial is available so you can instantly find the sounds you're looking for within the vast range of choices. Just choose the general type of sound, such as piano or organ, and then make your selection quickly and efficiently.

Ultra-Lightweight & Compact Design

Extra improvements in power efficiency allow up to seven hours of battery-powered operation from six AA batteries.

The 88-key model newly provides an accessory compartment that can hold spare batteries or cables, as well as an easily accessible front-located battery panel. On both models, the rear panel KORG logo is illuminated entirely, so you can stand out on stage.

Audio Player/Recorder Function

trigger from the padsThe built-in stereo audio recorder lets you record your KROSS 2 performance, or overdub an external input source such as vocals. There's also a pad audio play function that enables recorded sounds or audio files imported from an external source to be assigned to each of the 16 pads for playback.

Different to the sampling function, this allows extended recording and playback that is limited only by the capacity of the SD card; you can hit a pad to play back the backing of an entire song while you perform on the keyboard, or use the pads to trigger sound effects or background music.
