    Korg Nautilus Vs Korg KRONOS 2

    Despite sharing the same sound engines the Korg Nautilus and Korg KRONOS models have a range of differences. The main differences include:

    Feature Nautilus KRONOS2
    Sound Engines9 With added new samples and soundUsual 9 sound engines
    ArpeggiatorTwin polyphonicKARMA
    Screen7 Inch 800 x 480 resolution8 Inch 800 x 600 Resolution
    InterfaceNew design with enhanced operationStandard KRONOS interface system
    Controls6 Realtime control knobs, XY Joystick, 2x assignable switches8 control knobs, vector joystick, ribbon controller, control switches, XY joystick

    9 Sound Engines

    Nautilus offers the same unprecedented sound engine capabilities as found in the flagship KRONOS model but comes in a lighter weight case with less real-time controls and no Karma system. The sound engines include:

    • SGX-2 Piano Sound Generator
    • EP-1 Electric Piano Generator
    • CX-3 Organ Generator
    • MOD-7 VPM/FM Synthesis Engine
    • PolysixEX - Polysix Synth Engine
    • MS-20EX Analogue Modelling
    • STR-1 - Physical Modelling Engine

    Each sound engine has become known for its quality and versatility as they established themselves in the KRONOS name. With the Nautilus being a newer product Korg have had time to expand the capabilities and new sounds are now offered over 3 categories...

    Unique Sounds

    Nautilus contains brand new distinctive sounds including phrase loops, prepared pianos, found percussion and more. Many seldom heard-of musical instruments found in different regions around the world can be difficult to play, but distinctive phrases played on these instruments are featured on the NAUTILUS. Use these phrases as-is in your songs-let your imagination be your guide. The NAUTILUS features sounds that were sampled for the first time just for this instrument, including prepared piano sounds created by placing different objects between piano strings and recording samples, or "found percussion" sounds made by turning ordinary items into instruments to be struck. Not only do these novel and mysterious sounds provide an unexpected flavor to your songs, they offer broad possibilities for sound effects used in film and TV music as well.

    Current Sounds

    Designed to blend in with today's modern musical styles, the Korg Nautilus current sounds offer everything needed for EDM, electro, Grime and more. These sounds include new drums, synths bass pads etc.

    Real-time Dynamics Control

    Korg have equipped the Nautilus with a new Dynamics knob. Dynamics allows instant adjustment of the dynamic response of the instrument allowing the player more expressive capabilities. Turn the knob to the left and it softens the sound allowing a greater range of dynamics but twist it to the right to achieve a harder more flat dynamic perfect for cutting through on stage or modern styles.

    Six Real-time Controllers

    Whether performing live, in the studio or getting simply creative with programs and combinations, the six real-time controller knobs on the front panel allow instant control of all sorts of parameters from resonant filters, to arpeggio control, levels and more. The new design allows you to push the knob in to the product itself so it is out of the way from accidental changes and safer for transportation as well.

    Large Colour Touch Screen Interface - Enhanced Operative Features

    Korg have enhanced the operability of the Nautilus by adding some great new features and new assignable buttons. The large colour touch screen for example offers a great touch-drag ability for changing values easily. The MODE button lets you see what you've selected in each mode on a single screen, from PROG and COMBI to the set list, sampling, sequence and global modes. Each mode has tabs for each function, and the PAGE buttons offer more detailed editing with consistent operations. With the user-friendly navigation of the NAUTILUS, you can press the MODE button at any time to return to the start if you get lost. A dark mode is available for the display, using black as the primary color to reduce eye fatigue.

    There are 6 assignable buttons on the front panel which can be used in multiple ways. They could be used for example to choose the modes such as program, combi etc in the usual way Korg products operate. However you can also assign these buttons as shortcuts for other features depending on your requirements. there are 4 sets available which you can customize to your requirements.

    16 Effects Processors

    With it's huge effects processing power, the Nautilus offers 12 insert effects, 2x master effects and 2x total effects to complete its arsenal. The insert effects can be assigned either individually or as chain linked effects in combination mode. The 2x master effects and 2x total effects can be applied as overall effects to all channels as needed. To top it off a seperate 3 band EQ is provided for each and every sequencer track.

    16 Track Audio and MIDI Sequencer

    The built in 60Gb SSD drive offers the perfect storage for the 16 track audio and MIDI sequencer system. The recording is so powerful and versatile that the Nautilus can be the complete creative workstation for your masterpieces. Record guitars, microphones, add effects, play MIDI sequences and more with full editing capabilities. Master your recordings down to stereo audio files all within the product itself.

The world is a smaller place but we are all still individuals within it.

    Our Music Shop is on the outskirts of Preston with forecourt parking for 8 cars. Our closest town is Blackpool and nearby is Lytham St Annes. Blackburn and Southport are close by.
