This behind the scenes video, via KorgUSA, is an official Korg promo for the Kronos, but it does a good job of focusing on the keyboard’s real-world applications.
Queen’s Keyboard Player Spike Edney discusses his current stage setup, built around a Korg Kronos. Edney has been Queen’s musical director and keyboard player since 1984.

I thought the sounds where really crap and bland. It is a shame they couldnt have got some analogues in to do such music. A juno 106 would sound ten times better than that lame string sound.
I saw Peter Hook playing both Joy Division albums, and again the thing that let it down was the lame keyboard sounds. Weird that peoples ears arent telling em hang on mate it sounds too clean and bland.
The old heroes are turning into wedding bands I guess..
You put that really well. It is pretty much what it sounded like.
I have had synths for 27 years, I would struggle to create such shit sound even if I wanted to.
It is the same when you hear these companies selling synths and they stay within such safe margins of sounds.
Keep Music fucked up,that is my motto. It isn’t bland music that inspires people.
rock n roll
“…and nobody played synthesizer.”
