Unified on the KORG KRONOS 2

Each of the individual KRONOS sound engines is eminently qualified to operate as a stand-alone synthesizer.

Completely eliminating aliasing noise, and delivering the supple and fascinating sound of analog synthesis, this sound engine uses oscillator waveforms and filter morphing to generate new sounds that were unobtainable on analog synthesizers of the past.

MOD-7 Logo

MOD-7 (Waveshaping VPM Synthesizer)
VPM/FM Synthesis Sound Engine

Combine VPM from KORG’s classic Prohpecy and Z1, add in some wave-shaping, a little ring modulation, mix in a few samples, and add subtractive synthesis, plus a modular patch-panel system, and you have the MOD-7.

STR-1 Logo

STR-1 (Plucked Strings)
Physical Model Sound Engine

KORG has developed the STR-1 over the course of many years, this struck/plucked-string physical modeling sound engine takes advantage of cutting-edge technology. This is a sound engine of the future, one that allows the synthesizer programmer to construct truly new sounds.

COLOUR TouchView DISPLAY

The nerve center of the KRONOS is the huge eight-inch (800 x 600 pixel) SVGA Colour TouchView display. In addition to simply selecting a sound or choosing a parameter with the touch of your finger, the enhanced Touch-Drag ability allows more detailed 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.
