A 88-key hammer. I am not a specialist but heavy touch celuis it suits me well. Complete connectivity for connecting to a PC and simultaneously connect a hard drive or CD burner. The surface of the machine includes a good amount of controller and as the Kronos recognizes surfaces natively type korg nano pad, there are many possible extensions. There is no editor Pc, or at least free, unfortunately, given the complexity of the machine that would have helped a bit. Big bank of sounds that I say, to explore it took me over 3 days ... And the old, there is even Flipper!


The machine is very accessible on the surface. For those who started, I recommend this equipment so it uses many concepts other than music. The editing sounds n is not hard on parts for Hi dx7 and modular, that is another story.


For sounds, I'm not convinced by the guitars, largely on the best yamaha motif for the rest there is nothing to say. Banks are so equipped and fleshy, as that does not find his happiness will not find elsewhere. The effects are excellent and the Karma is a gas plant to program, not to mention that it seems difficult to anticipate the result, so programming a little empirical. I love tablecloths, violins, bass, pianos are by far the best I've heard on an electronic machine, far ahead of the reason for the coup. The synthesizers are many and varied, grain analogue is present.


I use it for a few weeks, I tried a lot of models but the interface equivalent of Kronos and audio drivers can do without a lot of devices such as analog machines. As I said, the acoustic guitars do not make me fantasize at all, fortunately I kept a mox for more acoustic sounds. Once again the sounds are signed Korg Korg and difficult to mix (in contrast to yamaha) but the machine remains more attractive and open to my taste, not to mention that his program a sequencer or use the yamaha with sub-sub sub-menus ... I give up!

Here, I note the machine very good in my eyes and my ears, the best in the market today if you look globally, for that s not cons for me are the top-level sounds, 12 years after the release of Triton I expected more sophisticated sounds, but a decade and it will be perfect. In fact the machine is an ideal pattern for his acoustic mixed with Kronos, sound plans, pianos and interface effects and progressive difficulty.
