Your nickname is not ‘Speedy Gonzales’ by any chance? My Lord, I thought this was some sort of tutorial but no, it was Speedy explaining how much gadgets there were on this instrument! 🥴😱
Can this keyboard's arpeggiator transmit its data to an external sound modules? Thank in a advance.
Play Country music!!
I’m a guitar player, but I’m looking at adding something like this to learn to play the various piano/synth sounds in my favorite rock songs. I also have two young boys who show an interest in music. Would it be best to get the 88 key version so they can grow up learning the whole keyboard? That’s my thinking.
And also in my searching around, this seems like a good option for being able to play most any sound heard in my favorite songs, but also not breaking the bank while giving my boys something useful to use in the years ahead. Any other options I should look into?
Thanks for the help, I know next to nothing about the non-guitar world. 🤘🏻🎸
I like your review, but I have a real struggle with something. If you have any advice I'll be grateful. I have a Krome 73, which is fine for personal and studio use. But it's horrendous on stage with my band. Many of our songs have more than one tone; some have three. For example, I might be in prog A 23 for an intro, combi C 44 for the main body of the song, and prog B 15 for a bridge. I have to shift instantaneously, seamlessly, back and forth between patches. But that's impossible on Krome. If I need to go from Prog A 23 to Combi C 44, I have to first push "combi," then "C," and then "44." Those three distinct steps can take several seconds. By the time I've switched tones, the train has left the station and I've missed it.
Is there a remedy for this? Or is a Krome simply not good for live shows with multiple patches, unless you have two or three more keyboards stacked around to compensate?
DO NOT BUY THIS KEYBOARD!! It has serious functionality issues with the piano sounds. People have complained to Korg about it and they've merely brushed it aside. Some folks have experimented and managed to 'fix' theirs, but others like myself are still frustrated to hell. Mine (far cry from proud owner) is packed away in a box just waiting to be thrown out because the dealer won't refund and Korg won't fix. I think Korg is the music industry version of the Star Wars franchise... they can't replicate past successes and they've fallen irrecoverably on this one. This actually means that it's within their power and certainly in their interest to effect a recovery (aka recall, service pack, upgraded internal SD Card... or whatever), but instead they choose to click IGNORE! Like... to hell with y'all.
Well... this goes both ways. I'm encouraging everyone to BOYCOTT ...yeah, I said it... BOYCOTT Korg products until they learn to treat the customer with respect. They are the ones who put crap out there. If the keyboard was merely sub-standard then one could excuse them and say well, it's what you get for the price. But it's blatantly DEFECTIVE straight out of the box!
And they have the nerve to be marketing a new version of the keyboard - KROME EX!
Can it be used as midi controller thru usb ?
why does nobody talk about FILE NAMING AND FILE ORGANISATION. Well, he can't even play a keyboard, what does he know?
Dude one question. Is there any difference in the depth of sound between the 61 key and 88 key model?
Midi out, but no midi Thru?
you dont sound happy. you need to do some fitness, salesman.
What is the name of that song 6min 30 sec
I know this video is old but guys, I’ve grown up using this keyboard and I cannot express how good this keyboard is. It’s probably a lot cheaper these days too.
This got me into composing music and even as a 12 year old I made some basic pieces (as you can see from some of my first videos on my channel).
Awesome keyboard, if your watching this wondering if you should give the keyboard a go then definitely consider it. I would recommend trying to get one with enough keys as when I switch from my piano to the keyboard I tend to run out of keys to play.
I wanted this to be longer! Great demo. I was just getting really into it.
10:38 That's making really good use of 5 octaves! An advert for the 73 key version has been showing up on my browser lately and it is very tempting to go with my analogue stuff.
Came to see the keyboard, stayed for the epic Indiana Jones theme.
Bro..korg krome vs roland gw8..which one wins
Hi, i have a problem about my korg krome 61 when i used damper i hear a note cut off, what will i do to fix that problem? Thanks
You really impressed me and sold me on this keyboard when he started playing perfect way by Scritti Politti one of my favorite bands really cool
That piano strings sound is really good I know that's tearing up the church houses of worships all over
This thing sounds great price of Grey 2 that hovering around $1,000 is Great American Musical Supply allows you to buy this thing for 12 payments of like $120 I think this might be my choice
7min 50 sec ID ?
Loved the demonstration, really impressed! I'm just not sure about what kind of sounds these come with. I have synthesizers and there I'm really not concerned about how old they are, because I have full control over how I make it sound. But here - looks like a ROMpler with its pre-loaded sounds, I'm not sure if I'd be able to get modern/time-independent sounds.
5:25 Lovely description of an... SD card slot.
Awesome keyboard and u are one hell of a musician!
Does each sound only have one drum rhythm or can you use any of the drums with any of the sounds. very frustrating if you can only use one per sound.
is this a midi controller because i have been trying to play around with kontact plugins with the sustain pedal but I havent been able to use any of the features : Module wheel , sustain pedal extra... only plays the vst and thats it. I also have Akai professiona LPK 25 Mini usb keyboard and plugins in exatly the same and I am able to use all the features so don't know whats going on anyone can help ?
This demo convinced me that I am not worthy.
But on the other hand, that sequence editor might save the day for me
Apparently Yanni owns 50 of these...
how do u transfer song ideas to Mac keyboard or usb
thank you for your comments you are the only one to use the EX without using the known sounds that are the piano sounds
I still have my trusty TR61, with great aftertouch, but............ shame on you Korg.
I purchased a Krome EX, and put it for sale within a week, the keys were WORSE than a £49 home keyboard.
How did this ever leave the production line - I would really like one of the directors at Korg to actually justify the cheap, flimsy keys.
This may be a cut-down Kronos of sorts, but a £1k synth is not strictly budget, is it?
I won't be purchasing any more Korg, after 20 or so years of buying your products, not at least until you sort your quality control out.
Show which buttons and screen shots achieve the sounds. I didn't watch this to see you play. Common among these You Tubes.
Some comments on here, about how many of these sounds are dated.
Yes, some PRESETS are dated, but if you take the time to actually customize and create your OWN SOUNDS, it will sound amazing - just like any other modern high-spec synth should.
The other option: go buy a home keyboard.
what a glorious machine
So this or the Korg Kross 2?
This thing sounds warm but with bite.
Hey really cool! Tell me, does it plays songs and tracks and do the keys light up? I would want it to be a learning tool. Thank you for posting this.
I checked out this keyboard yesterday at a music store. I was going to buy it after watching these demo videos, but I was disappointed by the quality of the materials used, it feels cheap made, the black plastic trim, and worst of all, THE KEYS!! OMG, why are they doing this? I even lifted the keyboard, I thought I was holding my first Casio keyboard I bought to learn years ago. KORG, what happened? I have own many KORG keyboards over the years, from the famous O1W/fd to the TRITON STUDIO. I couldn't believe that that was a KORG KEYBOARD.
What amp do you recommend using with this
I’m trying to be a director president and artist of a music program a hip hop music program do you think this is good for hip hop music
I want a new Korg to go with my MPC ONE but I know as SOON as I get this board, they'll release something to compete with MODX and Fantom! Trying so bad to wait!!!
Se puede cargar los sonidos del EX al Krome Normal?
So I can record music/tracks from here and play?
Why aftertouch not working.... Plss tell me
Audio thru usb ?
all workstations need drastically updating
what is wrong with the piano sounds?
Can you plug microphone into it and record the voice?
