The black Krome 88-Key Music Workstation by Korg features a wide selection of sounds, including piano, electric piano, dynamic drum kits, 640 programmes and 288 combinations. The 88-key Natural Weighted Hammer Action keyboard provides a feel and response ideal for any style of piano playing.

The Korg Krome has plentiful onboard sounds, including the "German D Grand" patch, which features 88 full-length unlooped stereo samples and damper resonance. The three types of electric pianos have eight velocity levels to ensure a faithful response to the nuances of your playing. Additionally, vintage amps, cabinets and effects have been modelled to add realism to your playing experience. Krome contains "Jazz Ambience Drums" which capture a dramatic realism by allowing you to adjust the balance between the direct sound and the ambient room sound. Krome also includes 640 programmes or 288 combinations, each created by professional musicians to provide both clean backing parts and soaring solos. The Drum Track feature, with more than 600 preset patterns, also allows drum patterns to be created and used with the sequencer.

Krome features an onboard 16-track sequencer. The Auto Song Setup function starts recording immediately at the press of a button. Each Template Song assigns genre-appropriate sounds to sequencer tracks with pre-routed effects. Korg's Cue List enables quick arranging with Realtime Pattern/Play Recording. Any necessary edits or changes can be made using the convenient piano-roll editing.

Krome connects to your computer via USB to easily transfer MIDI data. An SD card slot is also available to help you manage Krome's data files. The Krome Editor and Krome Plug-In Editor allow you to edit your Krome settings from a computer and/or integrate it as a software synthesiser in your DAW.

Responsive Keyboard
The 88-key Natural Weighted Hammer Action keyboard provides a responsive and organic feel with touch sensitivity.

Dual Polyphonic Arpeggiators
In Combination or Sequencer mode, two arpeggiators can be running simultaneously. These onboard arpeggiators can generate guitar or bass riffs and drum patterns. They can also be used for sound design; creating pads, synth sounds, and sound effects. Edit the preset patterns to create your own.

Built-In Digital Effects
The effects section provides up to five Insert effects, two Master effects, and one Total effect. 193 effect types including chorus, flanger, phaser, delay, reverb, compressor and limiter. Additional effects like Grain Shifter, Talking Modulator and amp modelling and speaker simulation are also included.

Distinctive Design and Display
Krome's 800 x 480 pixel TouchView Colour display can show numerous parameters at once. 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 utilise the TouchView interface, such as the piano roll editor, stopwatch and calculator keypad.
