After a teased appearance at the tail end of 2016 Korg has formally introduced us to the Kronos LS workstation synth…
Korg tells us that the Kronos LS features a Light-Touch keyboard and packs the power of a full-sized performance synth and amazingly responsive action into a 40-pound package. Here’s what else they had to say.
“Equipped with nine versatile sound engines, up to 16 simultaneous effects, and 16 part combinations, the Kronos LS offers everything it’s fully-weighted counterparts do, with a meticulously designed action that lends to any playing style. The mechanism of the keyboard has been redesigned to allow for better velocity, no matter how complex the chord or phrase is. It’s perfect for playing piano or electric piano in any style, and has become the prime choice in keyboardists globally throughout the years.
“Kronos LS also ships with the most recent operating system, offering new Quick Layer/Split via the large, color Touchscreen. Splits and Layers can also be saved on the spot into a Combination, saving players considerable editing time and providing more flexibility for live situations.
“The new Kronos LS encompasses a wide array of sounds and options, perfect for any type of musician. Literally thousands of single and layered/split sounds are available, all searchable by name and category, and all assignable to the easy to manage Set List mode.
“The Kronos LS touts a new dark umber brushed aluminum panel and beautifully crafted two-tone burst wood side panels.”
