Limited edition Korg Kross 2 is a mobile synthesizer workstation with a 61-key, velocity-sensitive keyboard. Combining a synth, sequencer, sampler, recorder, and audio interface in one compact and lightweight unit, it provides musicians and composers alike with the tools for writing and recording original music, or for performing as a "one-man band" or in a group. In addition to the neon color, this model has additional PCM that provides special pre-installed piano and electric piano sounds, as well as synth and drum sounds that meet the needs of cutting edge EDM (electronic dance music) producers.
The Kross 2 offers 1000+ preset sounds, 120 voices of polyphony, 134 effects, and 128MB of built-in expansion PCM memory for optional sound libraries as they become available (available separately). The workstation is equipped with a sampling function that provides 16 playable pads for triggering samples or full audio tracks.
For production applications, the Kross 2 comes with a 16-track MIDI sequencer, a step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and a drum track. A stereo audio recorder enables you to record your performance or overdub an external input source—such as vocals—directly to an SD card (available separately).
The workstation features a user-friendly layout with real-time controls that let you easily access desired sounds and functions on the fly. You can quickly store and recall your favorite programs and combinations, and layers/splits are simple to set up thanks to a dedicated button.
In addition to USB MIDI interface functionality, the USB audio interface enables you to connect the Kross 2 to your Mac or Windows computer and enjoy DAW recording. You can also use the instrument for playing in conjunction with your iPad or iPhone. The keyboard is powered by either six AA batteries or with the included AC adapter.
