Korg has released System Version 1.5, a free update for their flagship Kronos Music Workstation.

Downloadable from Korg’s website, this update offers users access to the first EXs Expansion Sample Series Sound Library, which is also now available.

 

Kronos Music Workstation System Version 1.5 adds seven new Program Banks with 896 new locations for storing sounds. Version 1.5 also allows users to install additional memory, doubling their available sampling RAM memory to roughly 2 GB, with additional index locations to allow larger sample loads. The connection of USB MIDI controllers – such as Korg’s nanoSERIES2, microKEY and padKONTROL – is also possible with Version 1.5.

 

Korg is now offering two types of Kronos Sound Libraries. The EXs Expansion Sample Series use Kronos’ built-in SSD, providing PCM data. The KRS Professional Sound Series libraries contain programs, combinations, and drum patterns designed to make use of the nine sound engines that power the Kronos.
Now available is the first of the EXs Libraries: EXs10 Ricky Lawson's "West Coast" Drums
Content: Approximately 650 MB of PCM samples, 16 Programs, 4 Drumkits
Drummer Ricky Lawson is a founding member of The Yellowjackets. In addition to Ricky’s drumkits, this collection includes variations of snare drum. Also included are ambient sounds that are designed to add realism and depth.
Pricing & Availability:
All Kronos Libraries can be purchased and downloaded at Korg’s Website. Introductory pricing on the KRS libraries ranges from $19.00 to  $49.00;  the EXs10 library features an introductory price of $199.00.
