NAMM 2015: Korg debuts Kronos 2 at NAMM

Korg USA debuted the new Kronos, the most powerful version of its flagship synthesizer to date, during Winter NAMM. For the first time enthusiasts will be able to hear and see the new Kronos in action with live performances and in depth demonstrations by product experts and engineers.

"The new Kronos features the unrivaled 9-engine structure from previous versions, with numerous improvements to both sound capability and overall functionality. Truly, the most powerful synthesizer on the planet just got more powerful" James Sajeva, Brand Manager for Korg products.

"Our SGX piano engine, already revered for its German and Japanese grands, now also includes a 9GB Berlin grand with dedicated una corda (soft pedal) samples, plus sympathetic string resonance that works on all the SGX pianos" he continued. "It's truly an amazing piano experience. There are new banks of sounds based on famous song titles for our cover players and those looking for 'that' sound for their recordings, plus a 'best of' bank from KaPro, who has created numerous libraries for the Kronos line."

Other new features include system-wide Touch/Drag via the Kronos' huge color TouchView screen; allowing the user to edit onscreen parameters faster and more naturally than ever.

An evolved Set List mode provides the capability to resize their custom text per set list entry, and enter text via either an onscreen QWERTY or external USB ASCII keyboard. Entries can also be color-coded for better organization and visibility, and users can even decide how many set list entries appear on the screen at time, allowing for more (and larger) onscreen text to remind you of lyrics, changes, or other notes.

An improved search function helps users to find the perfect sound faster than ever. Other improvements include onscreen metering in Combination and Sequencer modes, along with the ability to edit Programs within a Combination to hear the edits in context with other parts.

The improvements don't end with the software, either; the new Kronos also boasts a new look, including natural wood side panels, easier-to-read silkscreened text, a sophisticated – and functional – vented back panel, and gold-plated audio I/O jacks.
