The Korg Krome 61 EX Music Workstation fuses the renowned KROME workflow and combines it with a completely revamped sound library, ideal for contemporary sound designers and producers that want a balance of classic go-to sounds and creative, modern synth tones.
Perfect for the Stage or Studio
By stripping back the Krome Keyboard to its basics and rebuilding the sonic library, Korg have designed the Krome 61 EX to be used on any music production task. With a focus on Electronic Dance Music, Ethnic Instruments and Orchestral Sounds for film sound design, Krome EX has it all covered.
Courtesy of a much larger PCM memory bank, the Krome 61 EX is capable of a much higher-resolution sound with more dynamics and expression.
Korg's Krome EX also benefits from a revamped chassis that gives it a fresh, modern look to match its new sonic potential.

Brand New Sonic Library
Rich, effect-laden polyphonic sounds that evoke massive rooms, clear and crisp synth leads, and punchy drum kits that get listeners moving are some of the new staple sounds added. Ethnic instruments such as steel pan, kalimba, and kokyu, as well as Hollywood-type sound effects frequently used in movie trailers or commercials are also brand new to the Krome EX.
Gorgeous Piano Tones
In addition to these new preset genres, Krome EX provides tonnes of new programmes and PCM sample data for the more essential and core sounds, including gorgeous Acoustic and Electric Piano presets that will remain go-tos for almost any live or studio project.
Overseen by legendary sound design Seigen ono, these Korg Pianos are built on the success of the 'German D Grand' from the original KROME keyboards. Now Krome EX makes use of a much bigger PCM sample size, so you get more expressive and dynamic sounds.
Dedicated Drum Engine
The KROME 61 EX provides a massive collection of more than 2,500 drum samples to power its 48 preload kits. One of the notable kits is "Jazz Ambience Drums." Its generous sound takes advantage of KROME EX’s high-capacity PCM memory to deliver a completely new level of clarity and realism. Adjusting the mix balance between the direct sound (a mic placed near the head or cymbal) and the ambient sound (recorded from a distant mic to capture the resonance of the room), allows you to create a rich drum sound that has exactly the balance and character that you want.
Intuitive Touchscreen Interface
KROME EX’s huge 800 x 480 pixel TouchView Colour display can show numerous parameters at once, ensuring great visibility. Simply touch the screen to change sounds or edit parameters. Finger-drag editing is also supported, allowing you to use the on-screen sliders and knobs directly.
Numerous functions take advantage of the TouchView interface, such as the piano roll editor, a stopwatch that’s convenient for keeping track of a live performance, and a calculator keypad that is convenient for entering numerical values.
Korg synths and keyboards are renowned for their expression and playability. The KROME EX 61 model features a semi-weighted keyboard; with great feel and response that are ideal for playing any style of piano, dynamic organ performance or crazy synthesizer solos.
