Korg_Kross_61-key_black-and-redKorg Kross is the company’s “mobile, affordable” keyboard workstation with audio/MIDI recording capabilities, a choice of AC or battery operation (6xAA), and a selection of cutting-edge sounds. The new, all-black Kross-88 with 88 fully-weighted keys, and the existing 61-key model, are Korg’s first battery-powered, full-featured Korg keyboard workstations. Kross also includes practical features like analog-style step sequencing and a built-in audio recorder. The keyboard mimics the touch of an acoustic piano, with a heavier feel in the lower register and a lighter touch in the upper register.

Pricing and Availability. The all-black Korg Kross 88-key keyboard workstation will be available in May 2014 for a U.S. “street” price of $999.99. The 61-key model in a red and black color scheme (above right) is also available for $699.99. Additional product info and the bonus expansion pack programs are available on the Korg website.

  1. I don’t know about you guys but this is the keyboard I’ve been jonesing for: one with 88 full-size keys that I can play in a public park or up on tar beach. I’m also a keyboard player who will stop mid-song to read a text message. Maybe it leaves the other band members and audience hanging but friends are important.

  2. What is it with these stupid ads where everybody always making music on the move?? I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but I need peace around me when making music. And yeah… hahahaha…. sitting with an 88 key keyboard on my lap in the park…… HAHAHAHAHAHA stupid!!!!

    Friggin show me the actual keyboard and funtions alread!

  3. I was kind of hoping they were sending each other their updates on a song they were all collaborating on, loading to and from their Krosses, rather than just texting greetings. That would be exciting.
