Using this keyboard could take a little bit of learning because of its layout and in depth features, but it comes with a well written manual to help with the learning curve. The screen on the Krome is not full color but it is easily readable and it is the perfect sizes to see what you are doing and presets you are working with.
The sounds are good, warm and full. If you want to add some effects I do recommend doing that because some of the sounds are pretty dry so it is good to breathe some life into them with reverb. The Krome does come with a plug-in editor as well as MIDI in and MIDI out. There are no digital inputs or outputs on this workstation.
There are 193 effects ready to be used on all 640 sounds. This workstation has given me plenty of sounds to play with but unfortunately making them more into my “own” sound is not as easy as it was on the Korg Triton or Motif boards. Also, another feature that I think they should have added is sampling, you cannot sample on this keyboard. The price is decent but I feel like there should be a little more, or maybe a few more features to work with at this price.
