Korg today introduced the Kronos 88LS – a ‘Light-Touch keyboard’ version of their flagship performance synth keyboard.
Equipped with nine versatile sound engines, up to 16 simultaneous effects, and 16 part combinations, the Kronos LS offers everything it’s fully-weighted counterparts do, but with lighter keyboard feel that some players prefer.
Kronos LS also ships with the most recent operating system, offering new Quick Layer/Split via the large, color Touchscreen. Splits and Layers can also be saved on the spot into a Combination, saving players considerable editing time and providing more flexibility for live situations.
“The new Light-Touch key bed is incredibly responsive, and allows for gestures that might be difficult or uncomfortable on a fully-weighted action,” exclaims James Sajeva, Director of Technology Brands at Korg USA. “It also brings the weight of an 88-note Kronos down considerably. ”
The Kronos LS touts a new dark umber brushed aluminum panel and two-tone burst wood side panels.
Pricing and Availability
The Kronos 88LS will be available in April 2017 for $3499.99. See the Korg site for details.
