View Full Description
The KRONOS-X is equipped with a sequencer with 16-track MIDI and 16 audio tracks, Korg's Open Sampling System, dazzling hi-fidelity effects and flawless plug-in integration with many popular DAW platforms. It also features phenomenal sound, dynamic drums and an impressive array of premium sound effects.
KRONOS-X contains nine distinct synthesiser/sound engines in a single, integrated instrument. Dynamic voice allocation and innovative technologies allow all sound engines to smoothly share a stable, enhanced hardware platform. There is also room to expand with extra sound libraries. The EXs 10 - 13 expansion sample series comes pre-installed in demo mode - once you've tried them out you can obtain them for yourself by simply purchasing a license key. On top of all this, User Sample Banks let you create your own high-capacity sample libraries.
All nine engines share the same hardware, with no separate cards to manage or polyphony barriers between them. KRONOS-X dynamically allocates power between the engines as you play, automatically and in real time, providing an integrated experience no PC can match. In addition, KRONOS-X smoothly functions as a plug-in with many popular DAWs, providing your studio with native, unprecedented sonic power.
There is support for connecting USB MIDI class-compliant controllers directly to the KRONOS-X. Korg USB MIDI controllers with pads - including the nanoPAD, nanoPAD2 and padKONTROL - are automatically mapped to the KRONOS chord pads, for playing and programming drums, triggering chords, and selecting and assigning chords for Chord Mode.
