Slightly ahead of time as they would have planned it, Korg Japan has already released an introduction video of the Korg Krome. The name is absed on the Greek word for color, Chroma. Meaning that the Krome brings life to the vivid music (kinda). Minor details are posted on the Japanese website but as our Japanesxe language skills aren't up to par, we wait just a few days until the rest of the wordl get the full details on the Korg Krome. One things that for sure is that the workstation will be available in three keysettings, 61-, 73- and 88-keys. Price is expected to be around 3000-3500 dollars.

Oh great... Exactly the opposite of what I was hoping for..a knobless workstation full of pianos and organs!
All the crap from the Kronos and none of the good probably.
Come on Korg..we want the good stuff..loads of knobs and your juicy multi timbre synth engine

No way in hell will it be that much. looking at the spec sheet on the Korg website, its an M3 with all the fun stuff pulled out of it, and NOT a Kronos at all. Take an M3, stuff it in a light plastic body, take out the Radias option, the firewire option, Karma, Sampling, and the awesome control interface, and this is what you get: a garden variety rompler (albeit one with a great synth engine)

Absolutely Horrible ! Korg died when they killed thee OASYS,. prior to that their last good workstation was the Triton EXT,.. Korg is in it's death throws,.. sad really ... If you want a great expandable workstation that is better than a Kronos,. it would be Reason 6.5.1 '-) Oh & it's affordable,. highly portable,. & sounds 'Way better too . . .

Come on guys, korg is releasing plenty of synthesist geared equipment. not everyone wants to have knobs, and not every piece of equipment needs them.

Anon. cow. seems to take this pretty personally. :)
Korg has huge variety of different instruments... Remember those little portable analog synths with knobs for analogue lovers? Monotron. There is already many versions of it available.
And what keeps musician from using older devices as well? If Korg has done good job previously and those synths stand for decades, they have to come with different concepts.
Though i'd like to see updated version of Z1 with more knosbs as well. :)

I was looking for a complimentary keyboard for my Motif and was considering an M50 but the Krome appears to be a nice step up and priced comparably. Really like the ability to layer up to 16 voices, splits, light weight, etc. and from the videos the voice banks have some very nice settings. Krome it is.

Is that George Takei doing the voiceover?
