Korg announces Krome EX...and...

Author : Cyph

After 4 years supporting the Korg Krome, we, at Kromeheaven, were expecting something new on the our synth...

and ta da ta daaaa....Here is an answer from korg, a new keyboard : The Krome EX !

 

Future basics


Well, as usual the "new" keyboard comes into 3 versions, 61, 76 and 88 keys, but what's new in this Krome EX ?

According to the first information read on the internet, you will find :

-A new Piano sound

-A new Upright piano sound

-New Electric piano

-Vintage sounds

-EDM Electronic Dance Music sounds (vocal samples)

PCM memory seems to be EXpanded (but we will discuss this below) but hardware does not seem to change in comparison with the old Krome.

To sum-up : 896 Programs and 512 Preload Combinations

The rest is well known : LCD touchscreen, arpeggiators, sequencer, etc...

Oh and yes : A beautifull aluminium case :)

A krome 2?

No...no...and no ! Banditos !!!!


This krome EX has nothing to do with a new synth...In fact, even if the 2 new piano sounds are very cool, the fact is that the Krome EX is just a "big" software and pcm upgrade.

We expected a free krome software update but we had a "new" Krome EX with apparently the same hardware (To be confirmed) !

When we speak about a pcm expansion I doubt that it's a real "memory" upgrade..I would say instead an internal pcm content replacement ;)

No information about optional PCM data for the moment, but we will add and share information as soon as we get them.

Nb : Krome EX will be able to load Krome file ;)

 

The good news : At kromeheaven, we will try to support this Krome EX : sharing patches, tips, samples (if confirmed), and more !!! So Stay connected...

 

Demonstrations

You can check few demonstrations found on youtube to make yourself an idea :

Demonstration from France, Michel Deuchst

Neil D. Combi Pack for Krome !

"Hi,
My name is Neil D.
 
I have saved a PCG file i made using PCG tools . Hopefully i have done this correctly .... i deleted all the other programs in the ‘F’ bank apart from the ones i had created and have used within the combis. Then i deleted all the other combis in ‘D’ banks apart from the ones i wish to share and then saved as a new PCG file .
 
Jump , 99 red balloons and journey are pretty straightforward regards how the combi is set up to play .... however Living on a prayer and uptown funk are a bit more convoluted. I don’t know the best way to explain how i’ve set it up ...unless i maybe make a video  ?
