My Experience with dealing with people like you(I was a psychoanalyst for 5 years) who brag about stuff they don't have is normally a desire or order to feel socially less inferior to gain acceptance..It's the most obvious sign of feeling inadequate that stems from lack of love and care in childhood or material wealth inferior to peers around you,or the pushed out child at school,you show so much of that in everything you say...

I couldn't care less what Mixing console you have...or have not...I don't think anymore or less of you...coming out with childish comments like that only proves what an unhinged individual you come across as,and you just don't see it,you expose yourself time and time again...

If you have all this gear you so righteously brag about then get the pics up......

Until then save your "My dicks bigger than your dick"attitude for the playground..its all a fantasy in your own mind!and you make yourself look pathetic!

Hi Jahrome.
I've been following your posts since you got the Kronos. You wrote about the sequencer and its shortcommings, the data wheel etc.

I would really like to hear from you more about the good things about the Kronos, what do you think about the overall sound, maybe go specific about some of the engines. Cause i'm hearing, overall, more negative than positive - and i really would like to hear more about the positive side.

I can only write about my experiences. I haven't been keeping tabs on the number of positives versus negatives. But I will write more about the positives as it is a good workstation. For the record, I will NEVER touch my Fantom G again now that I have Kronos. I like Kronos so much, I haven't cancelled my pre-order from a US-based company. Very Happy

But...this is a feature request thread. And I agree with several things Kontrol49 wrote. Kronos' sequencer has taken a step backwards. It doesn't include the M3's Track View, Cue List, Piano Roll, editing wave files stored on external drives, etc.

My ONLY gripe about the O's Sequencer is its dismal 192 PPQN resolution and that's ONLY because of KARMA, since some of the GE's (specifically the Gated GE's), max out at 64th note triplets.


The Kronos' sequencer resolution is 480 ppqn.....so you have an even bigger gripe.

please, STOP!

You don't want Sina127 to get funny ideas and start posting pictures of his dick to show it's really bigger! Shocked

I went on to study Forensic Science and medical Pathology and now aim to become a fully Qualified Forensic Pathologist this what I have spent most of my Academic time studying having already completed 3 years of the Anatomical Pathology degree needed,this is part of the Medical pathology Training which will help me onto Forensic Pathology as a profession.
Currently I can only work as a consultant until I Have all the Qualifications needed to work as a full time Pathologist.

Hopefully once qualified I then plan to work either as an independent Pathologist or In conjunction with the Metropolitian Police force...

Then I am afraid you'll probably meet Sina127 again...

He's the kind of character who fits into a Patricia Cornwell novel.

As the serial killer who horribly slaughters his victims by having them laugh their ass off to death.

I reckon he'd make a superb Novelist full stop.....

most of what he writes in his posts is fiction!!!

Hear! Hear! There is no reason for this limitation. It should be possible to set any key on the keyboard to any pitch. The OASYS PCI does allow this, but other Korg synths do not.

There are many practical applications for this if one thinks creatively about keyboard layouts. For example:

I have a piece which I play that calls for repeated VERY fast wide skips in the left hand to hit a low D note in the bottom octave. No other note in that octave is used in the piece. Why can't I have a keyboard layout for that song in which every note in the bottom octave is tuned to that low D? It would greatly simplify a technical challenge and allow me to focus more fully on the expressive aspects of playing that piece.

Another example: Playing very fast repeated notes is technically more difficult on a keyboard than playing rapid trills on adjacent notes. But many songs (probably most) don't use every note in the chromatic scale. We use different patches for different songs. Why not also different keyboard layouts tailored to the song? If I'm playing a song in C major that doesn't use the F# note at all, why not let me tune that to G and then I can play rapid repeated notes on G by simply trilling the F# and G keys?

The present Korg scale tuning implementation only allows a tuning range of plus or minus 99 cents, which is not quite a full semitone. This makes it very cumbersome, requiring some awkward workarounds, to tune two adjacent notes to the same pitch. (My old Korg Z1 has a tuning range of plus or minus 100 cents, greatly simplifying this particular keyboard layout.)

These are just a couple very basic ways that keyboard layouts can be creatively devised to accommodate playing rquirements for particular songs. I have a lifetime of piano training and a lot of chops, but it doesn't make any sense in the age of synthesizers to lock everyone into a keyboard layout from another century which is neither necessary nor optimum for every playing situation.

Creative use of keyboard layouts is an option of the synthesizer age which has sadly gone largely unexplored and unexploited. It's a rich field for creativity and for fundamentally reinventing the whole concept of keyboard playing. There is no good reason whatsoever for synth manufacturers to lock musicians out of these creative possibilities by freezing the keyboard into a rigidly ordered succession of notes across the span of the keyboard.

Given the ship delays (which Korg certainly couldn't control), the decision not to move forward to KARMA 3 is going to look pretty bad in hindsight. There's a decent chance that I'll have KARMA 3 for my Motif XF before Korg ships the older version. Given how central KARMA is to the Kronos proposition that's got to hurt.

I also understand that Korg also was offered the opportunity to integrate the GE editor on-board, and turned it down.

Both of these are decisions that need to be looked at again.

1. I would like the Program mode to be improved. An OSC has 8 velocity zones which can be used to layer multisamples. But the catch is that you can only layer two zones at a time. Also, when you do layer samples, adjusting the filters, pitch, pan, EQ, etc effects all layers. So I would like the ability to layer up to 8 sounds within an OSC and independently adjust the filter, pitch, pan, EQ, etc for each layer.

2. Kronos' USB ports supply enough power to turn on my Akai MPD 32. I would like Kronos to transmit/receive MIDI over USB in order to use this controller. (Of course I am aware that I can use MIDI ports for this).

Now that it is released, can we get a sticky for things we would like to see in a future OS update?


1. Transfer data (samples, files, folders, etc) over USB to Mac/PC
2. Playhead marker in Sample Edit, Loop Edit, and Track Edit
3. Zoom In/Out in Track Edit
4. Sample Slice (Divide) into Equal Regions (Time Slice/Time Stretch)
5. "Latch" [Enter] button for use in Sample Edit/Loop Edit
6. Key plays edit range
7. Option to "LINK" Sample Start Point and Loop Start Point
8. Sample Edit: Add Pitch Shift (change pitch without changing tempo)
9. UNDO/REDO Last Edit
10. Grid (Sequencer) Recording and Editing


Out of this list I wrote, #2 is very important.

The Sample Editor shows a nice sized graphic representation of a sample. Pressing a key allows you to audition that sample. But as the sample is being played, you are stuck looking at the graphic waveform that doesn't show what part of the sample is actually being played/heard. The Editor is in need of a timeline/ruler above the graphic view and a cursor/playhead marker to indicate what is being played. This would speed up editing significantly. This is a significant function in every software editor I can think of.

On a side not...a scissors tool/slice marker would be nice. I could quickly insert slice points anywhere I wanted within the editor. Not many hardware workstations have this function (except Roland products).


I 2nd this request!!! Especially #2 (moving line through the sample as it's being played)...this is critical for looping. Idea

I would like an option for a song to start playing as soon as you load it. Or an option for the midi time code to be constantly sent without having to have the sequencer started. I have a midi click track light that requires midi time code messages to be sent in order to work. http://midisolutions.com/prodbti.htm
