The Krome 73 Workstation offers full-length, unlooped samples of every key for a spectacular piano sound, this new keyboard redefines your expectations for an instrument in this class.Korg's Krome Music Workstation takes its name from the Greek word meaning "color." Krome is the new standard for sonic excellence in a gigging musician’s keyboard, providing a limitless palette of sound to bring vivid inspiration to your music.
In addition to Korg’s well-proven workstation features, Krome features a carefully-chosen selection of the top sounds for piano and electric piano, as well as vital and dynamic drum kits, giving you the best of the basics. These sounds by themselves set Krome apart from any other keyboard in its class. With sound quality and features normally found in much more expensive instruments,
Piano sounds are critically important for nearly every keyboard instrument. Krome borrows the impressive "German D Grand" that was created for the Kronos flagship. In addition to the rich sound of 88 full-length unlooped stereo samples, damper resonance is also included.
Electric pianos offering expressive warmth and realism
For many keyboardists, the electric piano sound is just as critical as the acoustic piano sound. Krome features three types of electric pianos with eight velocity levels to ensure faithful response to the player's expression. In addition, the vintage amps, cabinets, and classic effects so important to these timeless sounds have been realistically modeled, ensuring that everything from the touch to the final sound will be utterly enjoyable.
Studio-quality drum sounds
The built-in drum kits play a major role in song production on any music workstation. Krome contains the same "Jazz Ambience Drums" that can be found on the Korg Kronos, capturing a dramatically high level of response and realism. Adjusting the mix balance between the direct sound and the room sound allows you to create a rich total sound that has exactly the balance and character that you want.
Colorful palette of sounds
In addition to piano, electric piano, and drums, Krome has a plentiful array of sounds to cover a broad range of styles that will meet a wide variety of needs. Stimulate your creativity by selecting any of the 640 Programs or 288 Combinations. Each one has been carefully created by professional studio and performing musicians to provide exceptional real-world use for both rich clean backing parts or soaring solos. Plus you can tweak, customize, create, and save your own sounds as well.
Drum Track delivers realistic grooves
Simply pressing a single button turns on the Drum Track feature, providing realistic grooves played by professionals using the Krome’s studio-quality drum sounds. Play along or incorporate them into your music production. Over 600 preset patterns are stored from Kronos, plus you can save user patterns as well.
Dual polyphonic arpeggiators
In Combination mode or Sequencer mode, two arpeggiators can be running simultaneously. In addition to standard arpeggio patterns, these arpeggiators can generate guitar or bass riffs, drum patterns, or they can even be used as building blocks for sound design, to create pads, synth sounds, and sound effects that include subtle motion. You're also free to edit any of the patterns to create your own custom originals.
Krome has a full complement of the features you've come to expect from a Korg workstation, starting with the 16-track sequencer. But Krome also comes with a rich suite of tools to jumpstart your creative urges. Use the convenient Auto Song Setup function or simply press the REC switch to start recording immediately. Achieve lightning-fast arrangements using Korg's Cue List, create instant-access patterns using the RPPR (Realtime Pattern/Play Recording) feature, then make changes using the convenient piano-roll editing.
The all-important effect section provides up to five Insert effects, two Master effects, and one Total effect. In addition to great choruses, flangers, phasers, delays, and reverbs, the 193 effect types include dynamic processing effects such as compressor and limiter, evocative effects like the Grain Shifter and Talking Modulator, as well as amp modeling and speaker simulation effects using Korg’s proprietary "REMS" modeling technology.
Intuitive Touch-View Interface
Krome’s huge 800 x 480 pixel TouchView Color display can show numerous parameters at once, allowing you to touch or drag to edit. Use features like the piano roll editor, a stopwatch or a calculator keypad.
