  1. I'm not seeing anything to blow my mind off, it would been nice to have a better screen graphic like the Yamaha Genos , and not just change the color of , and add 2 or 3 pianos sounds samples. I just don't see worth it to upgrade from the old Kronos.

  2. I bet its possible to get a black,red,gold,platinum grey cover in the future so that you can remove and replace it for another. That's the only thing they can make better.for the rest Kronos stays the same.THE BEST

  3. having just played the kronos SE at the namm show, i am surprised at all the criticism in this column: this keyboard is really fantastic and really is capable of doing most anything at a very high end professional level. i have a yamaha montage which is quite good but this new kronos surpasses it with the italian grand, the various B3 organs and some great orchestral… all gigging players should take a look before believing the trolling that is all too common. the SE is a state of the art keyboard….TRUTH

  4. The acoustic pianos seems to have something missing in comparison to Roland, Clavia and Yamaha's, there's less life in them, I can't explain better. Good to have more orchestral patches. I hope they'll update the organ engine, it's so far from a good hammond clone. In other words I hope this will become an instruments suitable also for playing a slow and expressive jazz ballad. For all the other applications it's gorgeous

  5. I’ve been searching so long to buy a new synth/workstation and I just cannot justify the buying price. I feel we’re past that turning point where VST is now the way to go.

    I’ve tried the Kronos 2 for 90 minutes at the store and kept comparing the internal samples to the numerous VST instruments I have. It felt “old”. Internal drums? Against what offered by ToonTrack? Nah, not even remotely close. Internal guitars? Against, let say, Ample Sound’s offering? Just no. Orchestral sounds? Getting better with the SE (from what I am earing on SoundCloud) but only catching up to what good VSTs were a few years ago! Organs were great, so were the acoustic piano and electric pianos. Synth? They were okay but certainly had that “metallic quality” to my ears…

    Even if I buy this WS, at almost 4K$ US, I will still have to rely on VST to “override” some of the poor sounding internal sample. I can understand having to do this for some specialized sound such as drums, but it still makes no sense buying a “super synth” mainly for organs and pianos. BTW, this also true for the other workstations and this a general statement I am making at the industry. The same could be said for analog synths: I mean, are they really asking 8K $ for a Moog One?

    That being said, we’re in 2019. Still an Atom at heart? Still has a small SSD? That 8 inches screen still stuck at 1024×768? And that color… Definitive no.

    And seriously, who's using the internal sequencer? I mean, perhaps quickly to record some rough idea but a proper DAW is the way to go. Please Korg, just focus the storage space and "processing power" making the instrument sound better. (Edited to remove double CR)

  6. Hmmm…paint job for the Kronos. Kronos is a great synth and this does look cool, but it's a good thing Korg had a few other NAMM-worthy releases this month. This is about on par with Nord's "new electric piano sounds" and "piano monitor speakers" which I would say probably weren't worth the price of plane tickets from Stockholm to Annaheim nor the costs of the NAMM floor space. But hey, that's their call, eh? And to top it all off, Jack has an official Anderton's uniform…nice!
