Review for the Korg Kronos 2 88
Martin3566, 22.09.2015
I am a professional keyboard player and was looking to upgrade my main keyboard. The Kronos was the obvious choice as there is nothing on the market to beat it, in my opinion.
The build quality is excellent, aesthetically pleasing with wooden ends and a body that is slimmer than most other boards of a similar size. The Kronos is 12lbs lighter than the Roland Fantom X8 I have been using (in itself a great keyboard, the Roland sounds are top notch).
The knobs, faders and buttons of the Kronos are very sensibly laid out and easy to understand along with the weighted keyboard having a second to none quality, from a pianistic point of view it just feels right.
(If your looking for a synth feel, Korg make a 61 keyboard version with the same internal workings).
The capabilities of the Kronos are nothing short of excellent.
Starting with the colour touch view screen which includes the manual using the 'help' button, making it easy to understand the workings of this complex instrument.
SST or smooth sound transition, means a sound complete with its effects will continue to be heard even when another program or combination is selected, providing you hold the note that is. When another note is struck the new sound will be heard. As such there is no drop out of sound no matter what mode you are in, a keyboard players dream.
The nine synth engines work independently of each other and can be configured in any way you want. The sounds are amazing and totally editable.
Karma is a sophisticated appegiator and is assigned to every combi & program, this brings the sounds to another dimension but can be turned off at the touch of a button.
The sequencer is top of its class too with loads of possibilities for live work etc.
The Kronos accepts audio in and provides a good quality sampler as well.
There are plenty of controllers on this instrument and more than enough to satisfy everyone.
Finally, one lead is all you need to connect to a DAW.
There are loads of vids on YouTube that are worth watching to get a better idea of Kronos or the Korg site of course.
Thomann are without doubt the company to use, they are cheaper than anywhere else and the service is excellent.
Regards
Martin James

A great DAW with some room for improvement
Michael55, 07.11.2019
I have purchased my Kronos to build my re-designed home studio around it. The features are powerful and great: Karma, multiple engines, dual sequencer, great effects etc. However, I miss a few basic features, like a SAVE button we are so used to when working on a computer, and a possibility to CANCEL at least the latest action – preferable, even to ‘retrace’ your steps and cancel those you would like to change.

What more can I say about Kronos 2... This is still the best workstation to date. I can tell you, I am a sound freak, and as a ex Motif XS user, I always struggled to recreate the sound of many new songs. But Kronos 2 has all these sounds by default, you don't need to manipulate them at all. This is the real deal. Especially the 88 version. The piano sounds are outstanding! Couldn't be more happier!

Just perfect!
Trinity , 10.01.2018
I use Korg Kronos workstation at home and during worship at church. It has made a difference in all the atmosphere that it creates when I play it. Slim design and robust frame. But the most important thing is the sound it emits. I love it and I can't find nothing wrong with it.
