The Korg Kross is part of Korg’s workstation keyboard lineup along with Kronos, Kronos X, Krome, Microstation and Microarranger. The Korg Kross is Korg’s new entry level mobile synthesizer and music workstation. It’s the entry level version workstation with less power and features than the upper level Korg workstations, but what its lacking in features, memory, etc., it makes up for in being an easy to use, portable, great sounding keyboard for someone that doesn’t want to spend double or triple on a top-shelf keyboard right now. The black on red colour scheme looks striking and the case shape is pleasing on the eye, there’s a nice blue LED mounted in the rear logo, plus the glossy control panel gives the whole package a classy finish.
According to several user reviews, they have praised Korg KROSS for the compact and extremely portable; Powerful EDS-i sound engine with FX; Sequencer, audio recorder and arpeggiator. Also, some users have complained it for no aftertouch; Few real-time controllers.
