      Comments about Korg Kross 88 Music Workstation - Black Base:

      The Korg Kross is one of my favorite workstations on the market right now. At the $1000 price range it doesn't get much better than the Kross 88. Finding layering and splitting sounds has never been easier. There are no convoluted menus to dig through to get the sound or combination of sounds you want. It may be the lightest 88 key workstation out, and, it can run on six AA batteries so it's a perfect gig board. Two thumbs up!

        Comments about Korg Kross 88 Music Workstation - Black Base:

        The Kross is one of my favorite keyboards for gigs on the go. I've used on a number of gigs doing work in musical theater and its form factor and portability are definitely the best features on this workstation. Though there are higher end offerings from Korg, this piece definitely is made for a gigging musician that doesn't require the other thousand sound samples available on $4000 products.

        88 Weighted Key workstation that's extremely lightweight. Packed with some of the same great sounds that are in the Kronos. The step sequencer is a great tool for production. Very stylish Red and Black body. This is a real hands on product review from Hodari@ Sam Ash Lombard

          Comments about Korg Kross 88 Music Workstation - Black Base:

          Korg's 2nd generation Kross 88 key workstation is not a startling innovation over it's Red 88 key predecessor, rather a nice new iteration of an already good product. It maintains the portability and battery operation while almost doubling the available memory, not a bad trick!

                    In a world where there are so many options in the workstation realm, this is a very easy to use, great sounding board. I would highly reccomend this mainly as a stage board though. It does have multiple sequencing abilities, but it is so easy to operate as a live keyboard. The categorization buttons make find a sound a breeze, and has plenty of preset buttons to recall a sound in the middle of a tune. Good sounding instruments, and ease of use. Overall a great board.

                    Comments about Korg Kross 88 Music Workstation - Black Base:

                    The Korg Kross 88 is one of the most versatile - and affordable - workstations currently available. Patches are widely varied and can be summoned in seconds from the intuitive control panel. And unlike its more expensive cousins, the Krome and Kronos, the Kross takes under ten seconds to boot up, making it ideal for live performance.

                    Diving into the menus on the Kross reveals a great deal of editing and sound design capability, and the 16-step sequencer (inherited from the Electribe series of grooveboxes) gives the player the ability to smoothly program his or her own drum patterns.

                    Overall, this is a fantastic instrument for gigging keyboardists or music producers - highly recommended.

                    This is a real hands-on product review from Caleb @ Sam Ash Paramus.
