Kronos X
73-Key Workstation

Korg Kronos X 73-Key Workstation

Per Day : $176
Per Week: $528

The KRONOS music workstation was unveiled in 2011. Everyone who experiences its sound reacts with astonishment at how far electronic musical instruments have come --- followed, no doubt, by the thought "what can possibly follow this?!" But, in the year since its inception, KORG has continued to release system updates and additional KRONOS Sound Libraries, bringing the KRONOS to an even higher state of perfection. Rather than resting on its laurels in 2012, the KRONOS continued to evolve. Boosting its internal memory capacity and the size of its SSD, as well as enhancing its sampler functionality, we have included more of the latest technology in order to make the KRONOS the ultimate workstation. Fittingly, its new name adds an "X" to indicate its unknown potential. Ready to take off into the unknown future of sound we present the KRONOS X music workstation.

The 88-key model of the KRONOS X features the same RH3 real weighted hammer action keyboard that's used on KORG's upper-end piano models and on the SV-1. The hammer weighting is graded, providing a heavier feel in the lower register and a lighter feel in the upper register, just as on a grand piano, offering superb playability. Boldly, the 73-key model also features this same RH3 keyboard, creating a more compact and transportable instrument that still provides superior piano and electric piano sounds teamed with an authentic piano touch. KRONOS X is notable for its slim design, showing an integration of function and design.

KORG's TouchView graphical user interface is based on a large, color 8-inch (800 x 600 pixel) touch screen. The TouchView display is the centerpiece of KORG’s intuitive design, providing easy-to-view information and simple touch control. In developing KRONOS X, we also incorporated numerous images of actual instruments and their respective controls into the display, to ensure that the musician enjoys the feeling of playing an instrument – rather than controlling a machine.
