Korg has released a new workstation (some call it light edition of Kronos, but it hasn’t very much resemblance to the Kronos).
It’s called the Korg Krome:
It’s a nice workstation with one synthengine (Kronos has 9) with a great grand piano that’s almost like the one in the Korg Kronos. A great new sequencer with piano roll editing and drag & drop features. The drumkit is also a big improvement. And important for some: it’s very lightweighted.
It doesn’t have Karma, but it uses an arpeggiator just like the Korg M50 (or korg Triton). It’s a great synth that has no competitors in its range and great for musicians who can’t afford a Kronos (yet).
