      Korg Krome 73 Keyboard Workstation (H88269)
Availability:  


Take your music to a higher level with Krome in your studio, on stage, or at home.

The Krome Music Workstation offers full-length, unlooped samples of every key for a spectacular piano sound. This 73-key keyboard workstation redefines your expectations for an instrument in this class. Taking its name from the Greek word meaning "color," Krome gives you sonic excellence in a gigging musician’s keyboard, providing a limitless palette of sound to bring vivid inspiration your music.

In addition to Korg’s well-proven workstation features, Krome features a carefully chosen selection of the top sounds available today for bread-and-butter keyboard instruments such as piano and electric piano, as well as vital and dynamic drum kits, giving you the best of the basics. These highly usable piano, electric piano, and drum sounds by themselves set Krome apart from other keyboards. With sound quality and features normally found in much more expensive instruments, Krome aspires to set a whole new value standard, and become a unique and irreplaceable partner for real-world musicians.

Spectacular Grand Piano breaks new ground
Piano sounds are critically important for nearly every keyboard instrument. Krome borrows the impressive "German D Grand" that was created for the Kronos flagship. In addition to the rich sound of 88 full-length unlooped stereo samples, damper resonance is also included. In fact, the PCM memory used for just this "German D Grand" alone occupies several times – even several tens of times – more memory capacity than the entire PCM memory used in a typical workstation or PCM synthesizer. Unless the original sound is impeccable, no amount of parameter editing can create an enjoyable playing experience. The Krome’s piano is an example of Korg's passion for every musician to enjoy great sounds played on great instruments. This resonant, authentic, and realistic piano represents a major increase in quality for this class of keyboard.

Electric pianos offering expressive warmth and realism
For many keyboardists, the electric piano sound is just as critical as the acoustic piano sound. Krome features three types of electric pianos. Eight velocity levels have been used to ensure faithful response to the player's expression. Lavish amounts of PCM memory have been used for this purpose, to the extent that just one of these electric piano types contains more sample data than the entire sound memory of a typical PCM synthesizer. In addition, the vintage amps, cabinets, and classic effects so important to these timeless sounds have been realistically modeled, ensuring that everything from the touch to the final sound will be utterly enjoyable.

Studio-quality drum sounds
The built-in drum kits play a major role in song production on any music workstation. Krome contains the same "Jazz Ambience Drums" that can be found on the Korg Kronos. Taking advantage of the high-capacity PCM memory, these sounds capture a dramatically high level of response and realism. Adjusting the mix balance between the direct sound (a mic placed near the head or cymbal) and the ambient sound (recorded from a distant mic to capture the resonance of the room), allows you to create a rich drum sound that has exactly the balance and character that you want.

Colorful palette of sounds
In addition to piano, electric piano, and drums, Krome has a plentiful array of sounds to cover a broad range of styles that will meet a wide variety of needs. Stimulate your creativity by selecting any of the 640 Programs or 288 Combinations. Each one has been carefully created by professional studio and performing musicians to provide exceptional real-world use for both rich clean backing parts or soaring solos. Plus you can tweak, customize, create, and save your own sounds as well.

Drum Track delivers realistic grooves
Simply pressing a single button turns on the Drum Track feature, providing realistic grooves played by professionals using the Krome’s studio-quality drum sounds. Play along or incorporate them into your music production. In addition to more than 600 preset patterns inherited from Kronos, there's plenty of space for saving user patterns as well. Drum patterns can be created and used with the sequencer, as well as providing a rhythm guide while you play, or they can be used creatively in your live performances.

Dual polyphonic arpeggiators
In Combination mode or Sequencer mode, two arpeggiators can be running simultaneously. In addition to standard arpeggio patterns, these arpeggiators can generate guitar or bass riffs, drum patterns, or they can even be used as building blocks for sound design, to create pads, synth sounds, and sound effects that include subtle motion. You're also free to edit any of the patterns to create your own custom originals.

Workstation Wonderland
Krome has a full complement of the features you’ve come to expect from a Korg workstation, starting with the 16-track sequencer. But there’s much, much more. Krome comes complete with a rich suite of tools to jumpstart your creative urges. There's the convenient Auto Song Setup function; if inspiration strikes while you're playing a program or combination, simply press the REC switch to start recording immediately. Each Template Song assigns popular sounds to sequencer tracks through pre-routed effects to match a specific musical genre. Achieve lightning-fast arrangements using Korg’s Cue List, and build an armada of instant-access patterns using the RPPR (Realtime Pattern/Play Recording) feature. Go back and you can make any changes using the convenient piano-roll editing.

Awesome Effects
The all-important effect section provides up to five Insert effects, two Master effects, and one Total effect. In addition to great choruses, flangers, phasers, delays, and reverbs, the 193 effect types include dynamic processing effects such as compressor and limiter, evocative effects like the Grain Shifter and Talking Modulator, as well as amp modeling and speaker simulation effects using Korg’s proprietary “REMS” modeling technology.

Natural Expression
Krome 61 and 73 models feature a semi-weighted natural-touch keyboard; the great feel and response are ideal for playing everything from any style of piano, to dynamic organ performance, to pyrotechnic synthesizer solos. Krome 88 is equipped with Korg’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer Action) keyboard, ensuring that every nuance of your playing dynamics will be expressively reflected when playing sounds such as piano or electric piano.

Distinctive design
The dramatic dark colored body provides Krome with an elegantly curved profile. The top control panel is made using two aluminum panels of differing design. The result is a distinctive appearance that projects an unmistakable presence, even on a cluttered stage. In both looks and sound, Krome will make a strong impression on the audience.

Intuitive TouchView interface
Krome’s huge 800 x 480 pixel TouchView Color display can show numerous parameters at once, ensuring great visibility. Simply touch the screen to change sounds or edit parameters. Finger-drag editing is also supported, allowing you to use the onscreen sliders and knobs directly. Numerous functions take advantage of the TouchView interface, such as the piano roll editor, a stopwatch that’s convenient for keeping track of a live performance, and a calculator keypad that is convenient for entering numerical values.

USB and SD Storage
You can connect Krome to your computer via USB to easily transfer MIDI data. You can also use an SD card (commercially available) to manage the Krome’s data files.

Standalone and Plug-in KRONE Editing Software
The Krome Editor and Krome Plug-In Editor allow you to edit your Krome from your computer while viewing large numbers of parameters simultaneously, or to use Krome in your DAW as if it were a software synthesizer. You can download the latest version of the Krome sound editor from the Korg website.

  • Good sounds; has reduced my rig from 2 to 1 keyboards

    As reviewed by Patrick Davies on 8/12/2013

    Krog Krome 73 has replaced my 2-keyboard live rig, but it wasn?t easy. It?s a mixed-bag of some outstanding strengths and some head-shaking weaknesses. Overall, this is a very good board, is light, sounds good, is a good price/value, and it?s working for me. But I?m going to be critical of the things I thought could be better. You decide if you can live with it. I suspect that the sounds and programming are going to be similar if not identical for the 61 and 88 key models. I've owned this for about 8 months, played 20+ gigs, and programmed maybe 100 combinations. Overview: Piano: excellent Electric pianos: good (faithful samples?) Organs: good, but will need tweaking Strings: excellent Horns: very good Synths: excellent Pros: Lightweight Lower cost for quality of sounds and features Excellent splits, layers, and velocity switching Very nice piano sounds Great synth sounds Very nice sounding effects Built reasonably well Cons: Organs probably need tweaking to use Black keys are hard to press near the hinge Steep learning curve for splits, layers, and velocity switching Routing effects is difficult to use and seems limited to me Power adapter connection to board is wimpy There are software/firmware bugs. No opinion / do not or have not used: Sequencer / Midi recorder Appegiator (the pre-programmed combis lead me to believe that this is impressive?) Drum track function (again, combis lead me to believe that this could be slick) Loading/saving data and computer interface (could be a gem? I just don?t know) Real-time controls (other than the Leslie organ speed, I don?t use them). I find the acoustic piano sounds excellent. I?ve heard better, but for a live setup with a cover band, it?s just fine. It sounds fine when I?m practicing as well. I don?t think the piano is worth nit-picking, especially given the lower price of this board. The electric pianos are good. I had been playing a Roland RD-700 on stage. I very much enjoyed the Rhodes-like pianos it had to offer. The Krome is probably a more technically accurate reproduction of the old electrics, so if that?s what you?re after, I think you?ll be happy. The Roland RD-700 probably has ?cleaner?, less true-to-original Rhodes sounds, but that?s kind of my preference. Hard to describe. The organs, again, I think many may be a more technically accurate reproduction of some of the old organs, but that doesn?t mean I?m in love with them. It?s simply disappointing that in 2013 we are still opening up the box of a brand new synth and not finding 10 organs that just knock your socks off. I found myself having to layer and tweak some organs to get what I wanted. I actually very much like the organs in my Roland RS-50. They may not be a faithful reproduction, but I like them. I had a hard time getting a lot of the organs on the Krome to ?bite?. I?ve got one organ patch with a flute layered in there, because I didn?t know what the hell else to do to get the sound I needed. Ugh. There?s nothing like a real Leslie, but the leslie imitation on the Krome is fine. The joystick can be pushed forward to change the speed of the modulation (slow to fast, fast to slow), so that?s kind of a cool real-time effect. I like the synths and pads on this board. They are stronger than what I had in either of my Rolands. I feel it?s a strength of the board, and one of the reasons I bought it. I simply needed better pads and synths. Lots of fun pre-programed combinations to play with. Drums. Tons of them. Sound fine. I?m not a synth drum guy, so whatever. This board takes somewhere between 30 and 60 seconds to boot. So, if the plug gets pulled in the middle of the performance, you?ll be down for more than you like. (Hasn?t happened to me yet). Speaking of power, it?s a not-so-common power adapter. 12v with yet another circle size/shape. It?s a weak connection. You?ll want to be careful and always use the power cord ?hook? on the back. There are software bugs. Rats. Sometimes a sound will just be really wrong. Rebooting isn?t required, but usually you have to change to a different combi or program to clear things up. You will run into little funky things once in a while. There are few bad notes out there. In particular, the banjo sample has to keys (G# and A below middle C I believe), that are awful and do not match the recent of the keys. Once in a while, in a horn patch somewhere, you?ll find a note (and maybe its neighbor) that just doesn?t seem right. It seems obvious to me. I?m not one of those nit-pickers complaining about sample velocity switching or whatever. If I notice it, it?s bad and only passable in a live situation. So, maybe 3 programs I?ve run into this. You would never be able to make a recording using this banjo sound. But I use the banjo, including the two crap notes, when I?m playing on stage. Nobody analyzes the banjo sound during ?Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy.? This board can layer 16 sounds with something like 8 splits. This is a much-welcomed, fork-lift upgrade from what I had. On my Roland RD-700, I only have one split and can layer only two sounds. The RS-50 was a real drag to try to program, so I don?t even know if I was ever successfully layering or what. 2-line LCD panel syndrome. The Korg Krome has a decent-sized color touch screen. You?ll have to use more pressure than a smart phone or iPad, but it works fine. I can?t say that the color touch screen makes this thing easy to use, but it at least makes it possible to learn how to program the thing. (The RS-50 will take that secret to its grave... where?s that manual again?) Speaking of the manual, it appears complete. I have had to consult it, and I have found my answers. Interestingly, in spite of the complexity of the board, I found myself in the manual a lot less than I thought I would be. This is really my first ?workstation-esque? board. There?s a lot of stuff I?m not used to seeing or tw
