The Korg Kross synth workstation has been a huge hit at Music Experience. Now the Kross 2 raises the bar with more power, more presets (1075), more polyphony (120 voices), a new sampling engine, sample trigger pads, and more. Still amazingly affordable, the Kross 2 88 packs 88 Natural Weighted Hammer Action keys, a boatload of class-leading sounds, and a bevy of intuitive and powerful production tools into a svelte, eye-catching chassis that weighs in at around 27 pounds. It will even run on six AA batteries, for impromptu busking in the park. With a mic input, a built-in audio recorder, a 16-track MIDI sequencer, drum track, arpeggiator, and Electribe-derived step sequencer, the Korg Kross 2 88 will bring your music to life.

The only instrument you need

The Korg Kross 2 is the only instrument you need. With its class-leading soundset, Kross 2 is your one-stop music production machine. Kross 2 delivers a broad range of sounds that leave even previous-generation flagship models in the dust. And the quality is simply stunning, bolstered by PCM data that's approximately twice as large as predecessors like the X50 and the PS60. For your gigging pleasure, Korg has lavished attention on frequently-used sounds such as rock/jazz organ, strings, brass, and synth sounds. But you also get ear candy flavors like toy piano, accordion, combo organ, church organ, and even a vintage tape sampler, along with cutting-edge dance music/electronica sounds — unique sounds you won't find in any other synth at this price. And with Sound Selector and a favorites function, finding and organizing your sounds for instant onstage deployment is a piece of cake.

Korg's pro-level EDS-i sound engine with 134 killer effects

Korg's EDS-i is a studio-grade sound engine distilled from the EDS/EDS-X sound engines found on Korg's most advanced instruments. EDS-i lets you use a total of seven effects simultaneously: five insert effects plus two master effects. You get essentials such as delay, reverb, chorus, flanger, and rotary speaker, but there's also amp modeling powered by Korg's REMS modeling technology. There's even a robot voice vocoder! With 134 different high-quality effects onboard, you'll never run out of sonic inspiration.

Gorgeous sounds to make your music sound lush

Korg Kross 2 88 is loaded with piano, electric piano, and drum sounds that have been taken from flagship Korg instruments used by the pros — giving the Kross 2 a soundset that surpasses other instruments in its price range. The grand piano, for example, includes lavishly-sampled decays with three different levels of velocity. Korg has even sampled damper pedal noises, juicing your performances with the ultimate in realism and nuance.

What KORG Says...

Keys, drums, sequences, sampling, and a performance powerhouse. The 88-key model of the all-in-one KROSS 2 synthesizer is now available in a "super matte black" rubberized finish. Packed with all the immediacy and huge sound of the KROSS 2, it features an additional expansion that adds all-new programs including a beautifully resonant acoustic piano. Designed to be your main keyboard, Kross 2 features everything a performer needs, far exceeding its class in power and usability.

Rubberized matte black finish is sleek and uniquely durable

The KROSS 2-88-MB features a great-feeling rubberized finish in "super matte black,” simultaneously sleek and elegant, but also durable and comfortable.

Rich sounds powered by added PCM

A diverse array of more than 1,000 preset sounds has been supplemented by additional PCM with 128 new programs that include piano and electric piano, and also fulfill your needs for cutting-edge EDM with synth and drum sounds plus 27 drum track patterns.

Piano weight keybed for natural performance

The KROSS 2-88-MB features KORG’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer Action) keybed. The NH keybed has a realistic and comfortable piano-style hammer, with a heavier feel in the lower register and a touch that becomes lighter as you move into the high register, allowing the subtle nuances of your fingertips to show through in your performance. This keybed is perfect for playing piano and electric piano sounds while being light and portable for bringing KROSS 2 to your gigs!
