A new kind of keyboard from KORG, ideal for the busy home studio producer who performs his or her audio productions in a live environment. With the KROSS, the sounds and songs that you've created at home and the system that you use every day can go with you onto the stage or into the street. No more bussing sounds and sequences into multiple devices or worse yet, recording background tracks for playback.

Featuring rich sounds that exceed its class, yet remaining highly portable, the KROSS is designed for practical usability. There's a convenient mic input and a built-in audio recorder, and it can run on 6 x AA batteries. It's a distinctive new standard in music workstations, with specs and style that set it apart from all others.

In spite of being packed with functionality, the KROSS is lightweight and highly portable. The 88-key model packs a piano-touch hammer action keyboard into a mere 12.4 kg/27.3 lb.

The KROSS provides a broad variety of sounds that surpasses the flagship models of the previous generation of KORG instruments. The PCM data is approximately twice as large as preceding models such as the X50 and the PS60. Staples such as the frequently-used rock/jazz organ, strings, brass, and synth sounds have been improved. There are also instruments such as toy piano, accordion, combo organ, church organ, and even vintage instruments such as a tape sampler, as well as bell-type sounds and the sounds you need for cutting-edge dance music and electronica - unique sounds that have not been included in a synth of this class. The Sound Selector makes it easy to call up your most commonly used sounds.

Splits and layers
Great for the gigging player, the split and layer function is graceful and easy. Dedicated buttons are provided for Layer/Split settings. Start by selecting the first program you want to use; then press the dedicated button to enable Layer or Split. When this is on, a screen will appear in which you can choose the other sound and specify details such as the split point. Then simply write your settings, and the layer/split sound will be saved as a Combination.

Record your performance
The built-in stereo audio recorder can record not only the performance of the KROSS itself, but also the sound of a mic or external input. You can play backing tracks that you created, or overdub onto them to create songs and demos. Audio can be imported and exported as WAV files using an SD card (separately sold), making it easy to exchange material with your computer.
