Amazing Workstation
Shane McDonald, 20.11.2020
I cam from a Roland JV model to the Kronos so for me it is a groundbreaking leap of technology. I llove everything this can do and I can tell you I am only scratching the surface so far.
I can't wait to gig with the Kronos. the piano sounds are rich, however you do need to edit them to make them your own. The combo modes and Set list mores are the most perfect features for live playing.

It is not the most user friendly synth but there are great online facebook and youtube support groups and I have learned a lot in the 5 weeks I have had the Kronos.

There are many scaremongering facebook posts about the Kronos suddenly stopping working but these are either as a result of a poor or unclean shutdown or in some cases software updates or instrument additions gone wrong.

A great instrument !

Korg Kronos 61 - First impressions
LAF, 16.05.2020
Product delivered promptly and undamaged, even in the middle of a pandemic. Supplied UK mains lead was a bit short. Thoman personell I dealt with were courteous and responsive.
I've only scratched the surface of the impressive capabilities of this machine. There is a wide variety of sounds available, some of which were not to my taste: others were incredibly good, compelling me to play on and on, which for me was the the whole point in purchasing the machine.
I very quickly got used to the keyboard, which for me, is very playable. However the user interface is very much the weak spot in this machine: the controls are not intuitive, the touch screen user interface isn't great, and the user manual isn't helpful. The machine would benefit from a major revision of it's User Experience design.
I've added a Behringer FCB1010 foot contoller to the Kronos. This worked straight out of the box, and I'd strongly recommend using it with the Kronos. The FCB1010 needs a MIDI cable with straight plugs, not right-angled ones.
Overall, I'm very happy with the Kronos 61.

Une vrai bombe!
26.06.2015
Parfait pour mon groupe de rock.
j'ai choisi le modèle 61 pour son poids, car je le transporte souvent, c'est agréable d'avoir un clavier aussi léger et puissant. (acheter avec son flight case sur mesure par thomann!)
Le clavier est de bonne fabrication, parfaitement stable sur mon pied, même quand je joue fort.
Certains se plaignent du temps de chargement au démarrage, pour moi c'est un faux débat, comparé au korg TR, qui prenait 7min pour charger 64mb, la on a 2min pour charger 2,2go... on arrive sur scène ou en répète, on branche, on allume, on fini son installation, pédale, jack etc... et il est prêt!
J'ai mis 4 étoiles en utilisation, car je ne suis pas fan de l'écran tactile... mais il est quand même agréable en terme de visibilité.
pour ce qui est des sons, il a suffisamment de vidéo et autres démonstrations, pour s'en faire une bonne idée ( sauf qu'en vrai il sonne encore mieux!), c'est du korg, on adore ou on aime pas.
