      amazing Sound Selection

      The KROME EX is packed with top class sounds for all genres of music. When it comes to pianos, it offers a world class selection of grand pianos and new upright piano voices with superb detail and depth of sound. The electric pianos are similar with up to 8 layers of sampling per voice combined with powerful effects re-creating the classic e.pianos of yesteryear with a modern flavour.

      There is also an abundance of superb quality EDM, orchestral, synth, ethnic sounds and everything in between. The voices come in program and combi modes where program contains single sounds and combis contain 16 individual programs. The possibility to layer and zone 16 individual parts in a combi opens up huge sound potential for performance.

      Huge Recording Capabilities

      The on-board sequencer offers a versatile package for recording, editing and creating your songs. A fully fledged 16 track sequencer offers in-depth editing capabilities from common editing features such as copy and paste through to detailed single note edit and parameter modification. There is even a piano roll editor available on-board!

      Dual Arpeggio System

      An arpeggiator plays complex musical phrases at the touch of a key, playing notes or patterns stored for that selected arpeggiator style. There are dual arps available on the KROME EX 88 so you can easily have two styles such as a guitar strum style with a bass phrase playing at once and assigned to specific parts. You can even modify on-board arps and make your own. The creative possibilities are huge for live performance or just for inspiration.
