      KRONOS LS Light-Weight Touch

      Play with the full range of 88 notes but have the advantage of a synth-weighted action. The weight reduction makes it the ultimate portable synth workstation for pianists and synth players alike. The mechanism of the keyboard itself has been redesigned so that the velocity is easier to control than on existing light-touch keyboards, even when playing complex chords or difficult phrases. The box-shaped keys share their look with KORG's premium RH3 action, while providing the faster playing feel of a synth keyboard. Since the keyboard is semi-weighted, it's also perfect for playing piano and electric piano in any style.

      Extreme Portability

      The KRONOS LS weighs in at just under 20Kg making it 6.3Kg lighter then the KRONOS 2 88 but with all the same features and capabilities.

      9 World Class Sound Engines

      As witht he KRONOS2, the KRONOS LS is equipped with 9 different sound engines all specifically engineered for unrivaled sound capabilities. For example the SGX-2 piano engine offers incredible sound detail. In addition to the acclaimed German Grand and Japanese Grand provided in the SGX-1 engine, the enhanced KRONOS SGX-2 Premium Piano now includes the distinctive Berlin Grand. Un-looped stereo samples recorded for every key provide a natural, authentic decay. Improved 12-level velocity switching exceeds the previous 8-level data, and features such as nuanced extras as pedal string resonance and una corda sample data to recreate every detail of a grand piano performance.

      The sound engine selection includes:

      • HD1 High Definition Synthesizer
      • SGX-1 Premium Piano
      • SGX-2 Premium Piano
      • EP-1 MDS Electric Piano
      • CX-3 Tonewheel Organ
      • AL-1 Analog Synthesizer
      • MS-20EX Legacy Analog Collection
      • MOD-7 Waveshaping VPM Synthesizer
      • STR-1 Plucked String Synthesizer

      Innovative Set List Mode

      KRONOS can organize all of the resources you need to get through a song-or a set-using the Set List mode. Using the Set List mode, the TouchView display can host 16 color-coded touch-screen buttons; each one can instantly call up the appropriate Preset, Combination, or Sequence-regardless of model. You can even add handy performance notes ("Sing on Chorus;" "Transpose Down;" "Wait for Sax Solo;" etc.) to each one.

      The Set List mode even adds a nine-band graphic EQ, allowing the overall tone to be tweaked to match the venue. New in OS version 3.0, Set List mode now allows for deeper customization with many slot color options, text size variations, and a full-screen text editor. Connecting a USB computer keyboard makes it simple to enter text and numeric values.
