Kronos X 88 has the same 9-engine synthesizer architecture the original Kronos is based on. The structure includes realistic piano, richly expressive electric piano, tonewheel organ, digital synthesis, and powerful analog/physical modeling.

The 88-note keyboard features proprietory finest RH3 Graded Hammer Action.

The 9 famous Korg engines include:

SGX-1 (premium piano) offering German D grand piano and Japanese C model sampled at 8 velocity levels for each key reproducing every resonance nuance, subtle mechanical noise of pressed keys or a released damper pedal;

EP-1 (MDS Electric Piano) recreating six most popular electric pianos featuring the Multi-Dimensional Synthesis technology which presents a stunning dynamic range, smoothes out the transition between sample velocities making the looped samples behave natural;

CX-3 (Tonewheel Organ) modeling the Korg’s classic instrument and reproducing the vacuum tube amp, vibrato/chorus effects as well as a rotary speaker replicating the instability and noise of the tonewheels;

HD-1 (High Definition Synthesizer) offering superior sound quality, low-aliasing sample playback oscillators, full‐bandwidth multimode resonant filters, quick running polished envelopes and LFOs, wave sequencing feature and Ambient Drums;

MS-20EX (Legacy Analog Collection) representing an analog modeling sound engine reproducing that dense sound with expressive filters while extending the number of patch panel functions and rendering the whole MS-20 legacy in polyphony;

PolysixEX (Legacy Analog Collection) representing another analog modeling sound engine reproducing the self-oscillating 4-pole filter, analog oscillator + sub, and a specific chorus/ensemble effect together with the classic arpeggiator;

AL-1 (Analog Synthesizer) reviving the premium analog modeling sound engine from Korg OASYS;

MOD-7 (Waveshaping VPM Synthesizer) allowing for combining of variable phase modulation, waveshaping, ring modulation, samples, and subtractive synthesis using the impressive sampling manipulation and the possibility of DX synths sounds import;

STR-1 (Plucked Strings) featuring a physical modeling sound engine which lets you create unprecedented tones produced by nonexistent instruments – you can pick any environment, part and mode making a surprising hybrid out of it.

The Kronos X version offers 2GB of PCM RAM, twice the capacity of the previous SSD (62GB). The library can be expanded with the sounds of KRONOS Sound Libraries and the KARO Sound Libraries. 16 MIDI tracks and 16 audio tracks are provided by KARMA, the Open Sampling System and the built-in sequencer.

Up to 16 simultaneous studio quality effects are available. Connect Kronos to your computer and ensure smooth interaction thanks to USB Ethernet compatibility.
