Korg announces Krome Music Workstation

Korg has announced Krome Music Workstation, a new hardware synth that provides a carefully chosen selection of piano and drum sounds derived from the flagship Kronos, as well as new electric pianos plus a plethora of other sounds and powerful production tools like a piano-roll style sequencer.

Large, unlooped stereo sample libraries include content from the German "D" Grand and Jazz Ambient Drums found in the flagship Kronos workstation. In all, Krome offers 640 programs, 288 combinations, 900 arp patterns, and more than 600 drum track grooves. Simply pressing a button turns on the Drum Track feature, instantly providing realistic grooves played by professionals using the Krome's studio-quality drum sounds.

The lightweight Krome 88 comes equipped with Korg's NH (Natural Weighted Hammer Action) keybed for a realistic performance feel, coupled with portability for on-the-go musicians, while the Krome 61 and 73 come equipped with Korg's velocity sensitive Natural Touch semi-weighted keybed.

The Widescreen Color TouchView display with advanced graphic UI delivers an intuitive and organic experience for every kind of musician, especially when using the advanced onboard 16-track sequencer with touch-based piano roll editing. New animations and input gestures have also been incorporated into the Touchscreen for added user convenience.

The Krome Plug-In Editor* enables it to fully integrate into computer based DAWs. While the Krome Editor allows users to edit the Krome from a computer while viewing large numbers of parameters simultaneously.
