Full DescriptionView Full Description
KROSS takes piano, electric piano and drum sounds taken from the flagship Korg instruments used by the pros, giving you a set of sounds that surpasses all others in its class. The grand piano features lavishly-sampled decays with three levels of velocity as well as reproducing the noises produced by the damper pedal, ensuring every nuance of your performance is reflected. Unusually for a PCM synth, an upright piano is also included, as well as distinctive sounds from Korg's famed SG-1D Sampling Grand and M1 Music Workstation.
Five classic electric piano sounds feature, just as expressive as the acoustic piano sounds. They also include effect settings, giving you a complete package of performance-ready sounds. KROSS has plenty of fresh and realistic drum sounds, which you'll soon find indispensable for song production.
The PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) data on KROSS is twice as large as preceding models. There are frequently-used staple sounds like rock and jazz organs, strings, brass and synth sounds, all brushed up for the modern player. Vintage instruments such as tape sampler and bell-type sounds for dance music give you cutting-edge options that were not possible before in a synth of this class. There are two dedicated dials that let you easily find the sound you need from KROSS's impressive collection.
Save sounds that you've created or use frequently to 4 banks of 16 buttons, giving you a total of 64 sounds recalled at a single button for true convenience during performances or in the flow of production.
The pro-quality built-in EDS-i sound engine allows you to use up to 7 effects simultaneously, ranging from standards like delay, reverb, chorus and rotary speaker to a modeling amp powered by Korg's 'REMS' technology and a robot voice vocoder. You can choose from 134 different effects.
The creative colour and design of KROSS will project a powerful presence whether you're performing on stage or anywhere else. The top panel is a sleek black colour, while your audience will see a bold red colour scheme on the rear and side panels. The 61-key model is designed for active mobile use. Highly practical and portable, KROSS can be powered using just six AA batteries and weighs just an astonishing 4.3kg.
The built-in stereo audio recorder is capable of recording a mic or an external input, as well as the KROSS itself. This means you can play backing tracks you've created and overdub them onto demos or songs you've created.
The KROSS features a step-sequencer inherited from the popular Electribe series. Sixteen buttons turn individual notes on or off, allowing you to quickly and easily create original rhythm patterns of up to 64 steps.
Connect KROSS to your computer via USB for easy transfer of MIDI data. The KROSS gives you a full set of workstation and production tools. KROSS Editor and Plug-In Editor lets you simultaneously view and edit parameters on your computer, using the KROSS as if it were a software synth.
