Professional Level Sound
Korg’s KROME 88 workstation features a specially chosen selection of great quality sounds from standard keyboard instruments such as piano and electric piano and even drum kits.
Highly usable and versatile, the sounds alone set the KROME apart from many other keyboards in its class but with the inclusion of incredible features normally found on more expensive instruments, the KROME truly raises the bar and presents a whole new standard.
Piano sounds probably the most critical in a keyboard instrument and so KROME borrows the incredibly impressive and popular German D Grand that was originally created for the KRONOS flagship.
Not only does the Krome 88 keyboard have 88 full-length unlooped stereo samples but damper resonance is included too, giving your sound extreme realism.
PCM memory for just the German D Grand alone occupies several tens of times more memory capacity than the entire PCM memory used in your average workstation or PCM synthesizer.
Korg are also aware that the Electric Piano sound can be just as important as the acoustic piano sound to many keyboardists and so KROME features three types of high quality electric pianos.
Ustilising eight velocity levels, the Krome 88 delivers a faithful response to the player’s expression with a large amount of PCM memory dedicated to this purpose, so much so that the electric piano types on the Krome 88 contain more sample data than the entire sound memory of most PCM synthesizers.
Additionally, vintage amps, cabinets and an assortment of classic effects are built-in to ensure that everything from the touch to the sound is enjoyable and authentic.
Studio-Quality Drum Sounds
Built-in drum kits are an integral part of song production on any music workstation and so KROME contains the same “Jazz Ambience Drums” found on the Korg KRONOS.
Taking full advantage of the high-capacity PCM memory, Korg have ensured these sounds capture an amazingly high level of response and realism.
You can even adjust where the “microphone” is placed in relation to the drum kit, allowing creation of a rich drum sound which the exact balance and character your creativity requires.
Additional Sounds to Inspire Creativity
Inspire your creativity with the in-built 640 Programs and 288 Combinations, each of which has been carefully created by professional studio and performing musicians.
Great for real-world use, allowing you to build rich and clean backing parts or have them front and centre for solo performance. You can even customise, adjust, create and save your own sounds.
Displaying numerous parameters at once, KROME has a huge 800 x 480 pixel TouchView colour display monitor that ensures great visibility. By tapping and finger-dragging, you can touch the screen to change sounds and edit parameters.
The KROME 88 also features Korg’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer Action) keyboard which ensures that every nuance of your playing dynamics and expression is reflected when playing.
