Even More Powerful Preset Sounds, with Specialized Optional Expansion Sounds
The evolved Kross 2 expands polyphony from 80 to 120 voices, and dramatically powers-up the number of internal programs from 809 to 1,075 programs. Including multi-layered pianos and electric pianos, thick strings and other sounds that will work well with any band, as well as the latest drum kits to cover current styles such as EDM. The wide selection of programs covers your needs from live performance to studio production. The Kross 2 now provides 128 MB of built-in expansion PCM memory. By selecting from optional libraries, you can expand Kross 2's internal sounds to meet the needs of your performing style or situation. The high-quality EDS-i Enhanced Definition Synthesis-integrated sound engine is inherited from Korg's professional synthesizers. You can use a total of seven effects units simultaneously: five insert and two master. Rich expressive power is available from the selection of 134 high-quality effects, including standard effects such as delay and reverb as well as amp modeling, vintage effect units, and even a vocoder.

Straightforward Access to the Sounds and Functions you Need
It's easy to get around on Kross 2, thanks to a user-friendly layout. The panel of the Kross 2 has been further improved since the first Kross, ensuring that anyone can quickly access desired sounds and functions from the enormous range of choices. The real-time control section lets you directly control Kross 2's main parameters without having to navigate through a menu hierarchy. In addition to real-time control of the sounds and effects, and simple editing of programs, you can use the knobs to easily control the vocoder settings or adjust the tempo of the arpeggiator and sequencer. The favorite function lets you register frequently-used programs and combinations and recall them at a single touch, and has even been expanded to allow 128 favorite locations, twice the number of the first generation of Kross. This function is ideal for live players that need quick access to a specialized set of sounds on-stage. The layer/split function, which lets you layer two sounds or assign separate sounds to the left and right regions of the keyboard, is now easier to set up, thanks to a dedicated quick layer/split button. A category dial is provided, allowing you to immediately find the sounds you're looking for amid the vast range of choices. Just choose the general type of sound, such as piano or organ, and then make your selection quickly and efficiently.

I would buy this keyboard over and over and over again!!


I simply love this keyboard! Don't let size fool you. SOO Manny sounds. I have not even gone through all of them yet. The sounds and there quality is excellent. The keyboard itself is very quiet. I love that you can use a microphone for the vocoder and vocal effects. This is my first KORG Keyboard ever! I have not purchased a brand new personal keyboard in 25 years. It's like stepping out of prehistoric ties into the millennium if you know what I mean. What an excellent investment I made.



Great Investment


Five stars across the board!!!! From the packaging and delivery process to unwrapping and turning this bad boy on. The Korg Kross2 is the best Investment I've made I highly recommend this series of Korg. It keeps up with the production load needed to run with the big boys in a producers world. It has the sound engine for live performances and guaranteed to be the conversation piece afterwarda. I need more than 5 stars to rate this awesome workstation !!!!!!



Best synthesizer in this price range


Great synthesizer for the price!



This "bad boy"is deceptive;a lot under the hood!!


I am blown away by the quality of the piano sounds!!;And it weighs 8 lbs!! Best part is the logical architecture of Korgs menu system. With audio recording.......and the keyboard action is far ahead of anything in this price range!!



Was a downgrade from Cross one
