Hello All:

I'm new to the Kronos and ABSOLUTELY love it! I've had the Yam. Motif, Rolands, K2600, etc. The Kronos is simply the best workstation I've ever seen/heard. Any-who, since you know that already, I won't belabor that point:

I've been a computer tech with 'computer' programming experience for 25 years. So I'm a technical guy. But I am 'very' new to synthesis/keyboard programming. I think I can ramp up pretty quickly given my background but this Kronos is DEEP (to put it mildly).

I was pondering the idea of starting a local Kronos User's Group (KUG). Even discussed it with the local Guitar Centers & they did not know of any. A KUG would simply be a comradery group of Kronos owners that could meet once/twice a month to hammer out and share programming tips, sound creation tips, and other tips. The group could pay membership fees. These fees could pay for speakers (like a Rich Formidoni Wink or even give donations to the groups main technical leader/presenter (which would NOT be me <LOL>).

This is just an idea that I would be very interested in and that could probably cut my learning curve time in HALF: At least. I would be willing to drive an hour or so for these meetings. I am in North Carolina.

Anyone interested??? Any suggestions??? Thanks in advance.

I think it's a great idea. Too bad I live in Toronto though.

I was pondering the same idea of starting a local Kronos User's Group (KUG): Just to meet in person and discuss and help each other with tips and tricks.

I am in Byron Bay, Australia?

Is there anyone close by who likes to meet?

Hi music frog... We've got one in Melbourne called the Kronos Enthusiast Workshops. It's in FB too. Workshops are held in Keyboard Corner Boronia.

Hi guys,

noticing a heavily weighted response in Oz.
I'm in Canberra, and midway between both of you. Pity...it's just a bit far for me as a regular thing in either direction, though I do get around Boronia sometimes Smile

Chris

There is also one several times per year in Dortmund, Germany.
It gives a lot of information and listening to new sounds (from Kurt Ader).

So it is confirmed that this is a good idea then. Cool! Any interested persons in the North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, TN, VA, areas...please reply. Let's get started. Also email me at PlayThoseKeys@GMail.com so that we can link up without making this such a long thread.

I just wonder if there are any other people here in Toronto who would be into doing this.

Another option is to use Skype. Almost as good as in-person from the comfort of your home studio.

You can set up one to one or group meetings, with or without video as well as audio and chat. You can also share files such as .PCGs this way.

This option would allow guest speakers from anywhere on the globe. By setting up regular meeting days and times, anyone from Kronos forums could join whenever it is convenient for them.

yes, that works really good. Another option is google hangouts.

the only drawback is the time difference if you create groups with people from all over the world.

Facebook. Francis Capistrano, from this forum, has a Kronos group there - KRONOS Enthusiast Workshops.

GREAT idea. I am tied up right now on a couple projects but will try to work on setting this up in the next few months.

There's one for St Louis Kronos users on FB (I'm in it), but it doesn't get much traffic - most of the other Kronos groups get it.

My suggestion would be to start there. You're more likely to find owners in your area.
