Overview

The Korg KRONOS has established itself as a premier performance and recording keyboard instrument, and serves as the chief controller and sound source hub for countless musicians and studios all over the world. With its position in the marketplace firmly established, the Korg KRONOS development team has been designing refinements that will appeal to specific musicians and producers.

This latest iteration of the KRONOS differs in a few primary ways; first, the playing action is lighter than the original. This newly designed light-touch keyboard results in effortless, nimble playing from rapid organ licks to synth phrases to glissandi. Additionally, the lighter keybed makes it easier to transport, as it is 14 lbs. lighter than the KRONOS2-88. Other changes include a new look to complement its new feel. With its luxurious dark umber aluminum body and beautifully crafted sunburst wood side panels, KRONOS LS is designed to present as beautifully as it plays. KRONOS LS offers an elegant look that’s perfect for home, stage or studio.

Even the mechanism of the keyboard itself has been redesigned so that the velocity is easier to control than on existing light-touch keyboards, even when playing complex chords or difficult phrases. The box-shaped keys share their look with KORG’s premium RH3 action, while providing the faster playing feel of a synth keyboard. Since the keyboard is semi-weighted, it’s also perfect for playing piano and electric piano in any style.

New OS v3.1 includes Quick Layer and Quick Split functions right at users’ fingertips. Effortlessly create layers such as piano and strings, or splits such as electric piano and bass. Numerous additional OS refinements have also been made to further ensure stability and a stress-free performance environment.

Apart from all of these changes, the KRONOS LS remains true to its predecessor’s nine versatile sound engines, up to 16 simultaneous effects, 16-part Combinations and so much more. KRONOS is KORG’s most powerful synthesizer ever, and to further unlock KRONOS’ potential, KORG has introduced this new light-touch 88-key model for a new level of playability and portability. The KRONOS LS is the perfect version for players who prefer a less resistant keyboard action.

Keyboard action is a real disappointment

By Wayne

from Walnut Creek

Pros

  • Best workstation bar none
  • Does have aftertouch
  • Still has the most amazing samples on the market

Cons

  • Keyboard action feels very cheap
  • Keys feel non- (not semi-) weighted
  • Lacks responsiveness for any musical style
  • Toy piano feel

Best Uses

  • Lacks potential as a synth and as a piano

Comments about Korg KRONOS with New Light Touch 88-Note Action and Lighter Body:

I was so excited about this keyboard that took my regular Kronos 88 back for a refund. What a mistake. While it has all of the incredible capabilities of the Kronos the keyboard feels like a very cheap Casio. It has no resistance for even a modicum of control. To call this semi- weighted is very misleading. Even for a synth action it does not have adequate spring mechanism response with an unavoidable slipping and sliding on the keys that will leave players with even less of a sense of key stability. My Jupiter 80 keyboard is like a Steinway B by comparison. I will return this "light" model and repurchase the regular Kronos. So much for trying to save that extra 14 pounds of weight. Future buyers may want to compromise with the 73 key model with weighted action--the 88 is truly unwieldy for frequent transport. One final note: contrary to dozens of other comments on the internet the new LS DOES have aftertouch.
