In 1988, Korg defined the workstation category with the revolutionary M1. The Kronos continues its evolution with the new Kronos X Music Workstation. With a boost to the internal memory and SSD size, the Kronos X is the ultimate workstation.

Expand your musical horizons with Korg's flagship workstation: the Kronos X.
The Kronos X8 88-Key Workstation has an "X" in its name to indicate its expanded, and truly limitless potential as the ultimate instrument for performing musicians or creation in a studio. Now jam-packed with newly updated, must-have features that offer up even more of the latest technology befitting the ultimate workstation; like 9 synth engines, an on-board sequencer that boasts 16 MIDI + 16 audio tracks and numerous artist signature sounds created by top musicians to make the sounds of classic songs your very own!

Support for gigantic sound library expansions are a snap with approximately 2GB of PCM RAM and a doubled SSD capacity of 62GB. Or go FX crazy with up to 16 simultaneous, integrated premium-quality effects that rival dedicated outboard units. Now go X-pand your mind… with the Korg Kronos X.

Kronos X is accurate and responsive to the player’s technique, with a control surface that includes joysticks, sliders, knobs, switches, a ribbon controller, assignable pedal inputs, and a  high-resolution color TouchView display. An easy-to-use Set List mode and Smooth Sound Transition provides song-specific, gig-ready sound selection and performance.

In the Studio
The Kronos X Music Workstation’s sequencer has a 16-track MIDI and 16 audio tracks, an Open Sampling System, hi-fidelity effects and plug-ins that will integrate with your DAW software. Along with phenomenal sound, dynamic drums, and an impressive array of premium sound effects, KORG gives you KARMA, the Drum Track, and the sequencer’s RPPR for quick and efficient music creation.  The Drum Track comes with features from the M3 and M50 Music Workstations, creating everything from a simple reference beat or an outline rhythm track to a full-blown drum track for your productions, plus professional drum performances from artists such as Ricky Lawson, to generate grooves using the distinctive feel of a pro drummer.

Simple, intuitive programming for the enthusiast and sound designer, the ability to tweak parameters and enjoy creating new sounds. Korg’s synth engines include  CMT (Component Modeling Technology); Physical Modeling, Digital Synthesis, Wave Sequencing, MDS (Multi-Dimensional Synthesis); KARMA® and more!

Open Sampling
Whether in Program, Combination, or Sequencer mode, you can use Kronos X to sample an external audio source, or to resample the performance of the Kronos X itself. Edit using operations like truncate, normalize, time stretch, or time slice and export into AIFF or WAVE format. You can also load external samples in AIFF, WAVE, SoundFont 2.0, and AKAI S1000/3000 formats via USB memory. Even load samples that you’ve previously created on other instruments or on a PC.

Play along with recorded tracks, add effects, and then resample the Kronos X itself and place the resampled WAVE files directly in a track. When polishing your tracks, feel free to use mixer automation and editing functions such as copy, paste, and normalize to get the results you want. Plug in a USB CD-burner and assemble your album right from the TouchView display!

Up to 16 simultaneous Premium-quality effects
Kronos X provides 16 internal effects to add impact to your sonic creations. Effects include a high-resolution reverb, chorus, delay, guitar amp and cabinet modeling, even vocoding.
