    Korg Kross 2 is a compact, portable workstation with a huge range of sounds. While maintaining its identity as ultra-lightweight, compact and capable of running on batteries, this model dramatically enhances Kross's sounds and functionality. In addition to a total of more than a thousand preset sounds, expansion PCM memory has been added. Also included is a pad sampler that allows full-fledged sampling and USB audio/MIDI interface functionality. The color scheme is even more stylish and the user interface allows intuitive operation even by beginners.

    Effortlessly select the sound that you want to play, shape it to match your imagination, sample a sound, create phrases and rhythms, record your vocal or guitar, bring Kross 2 on stage and perform. Whatever your artistic vision, you can make it happen. Kross 2 is a versatile synthesizer platform made with creative freedom in mind.

    Powerful preset sounds, with specialized optional expansion sounds
    The sound quality of Korg synthesizers is endorsed by top-ranking musicians around the world. Kross 2 boasts 120-voice polyphony and 1,075 internal programs, including multi-layered pianos and electric pianos, thick strings and other new sounds that will work well with any band, as well as the latest drum kits to cover styles such as EDM. The wide selection of programs covers your needs from live performance to studio production.

    Built-in expansion PCM memory and support for optional libraries
    Kross 2 provides 128 MB of built-in expansion PCM memory. By selecting from optional libraries, you can expand Kross 2's internal sounds to meet the needs of your performing style or situation.

    The rich expressive power of the EDS-i sound engine, with a full complement of effects
    The high-quality EDS-i Enhanced Definition Synthesis-integrated sound engine is inherited from Korg's professional synthesizers. You can use a total of seven effects units simultaneously: five insert and two master. Rich, expressive power is available from the selection of 134 high-quality effects, including standard effects such as delay and reverb as well as amp modeling, vintage effect units and even a vocoder.

    Superb sampling function and a pad sampler
    Kross 2 is equipped with a unique sampling function that provides 16 playable pads. You can record the input from the line in jack and assign a stereo sample of up to 14 seconds to each pad. Up to four pads can be triggered simultaneously. You can edit the sample waveform using functions such as start/end loop point settings and normalize, and even resample within Kross 2, allowing you to perform extensive sampling without requiring any additional equipment. Long audio files from an SD card can also be assigned to these pads.

    Realtime control section
    The realtime control section lets you directly control Kross 2's main parameters without having to navigate through a menu hierarchy. In addition to realtime control of the sounds and effects and simple editing of programs, you can use the knobs to easily control the vocoder settings or adjust the tempo of the arpeggiator and sequencer.

    Favorites function
    The favorites function lets you register frequently-used programs and combinations and recall them at a single touch and provides 128 favorite locations. This function is ideal for live players that need quick access to a specialized set of sounds on stage.

    Quick layer/split
    The layer/split function, which lets you layer two sounds or assign separate sounds to the left and right regions of the keyboard, is easy to set up thanks to a dedicated quick layer/split button.

    Category dial
    A category dial is provided, allowing you to immediately find the sounds you're looking for amid the vast range of choices. Just choose the general type of sound, such as piano or organ, and then make your selection quickly and efficiently.

    Ultra-lightweight and compact body with support for battery operation
    The amazing mobility of the Kross series is unparalleled. Improvements in power efficiency allow up to seven hours of battery-powered operation from six AA batteries. The 88-key model also provides an accessory compartment that can hold spare batteries or cables as well as an easily accessible front-located battery panel. The rear panel Korg logo is fully illuminated, letting you stand out on stage.

    The ultimate body finish that exceeds its class
    Kross 2 also features high quality in its body finish. The 88-key model uses a stylish and cool 'dark blue' color. Lavish use of this sophisticated rubberized finish gives the instrument a highly professional appearance.

    Audio player/recorder that you can easily trigger from the pads
    The built-in stereo audio recorder lets you record your Kross 2 performance or overdub an external input source such as vocals. There's also a pad audio play function that allows recorded sounds or audio files imported from an external source to be assigned to each of the 16 pads for playback. Unlike the sampling function, this allows extended recording and playback that is limited only by the capacity of the SD card; you can strike a pad to play back the backing of an entire song while you perform on the keyboard or use the pads to trigger sound effects or background music.

    16-track MIDI sequencer
    The 16-track MIDI sequencer records your keyboard performance and controller movements as MIDI data. It can also record your pad sampler performance, providing an easy way for you to create sketches of ideas for songs.

    Step sequencer
    This lets you use the 16 pads to intuitively and quickly create original rhythm patterns of up to 64 steps.

    Drum track
    The drum track lets you add rhythm to your performance simply by pressing a button. Choose from 772 preset drum patterns that cover a variety of styles.

    Arpeggiator
    This function is a great way to generate ideas for songs; simply hold down keys to generate rhythmic chords, bass phrases or guitar strumming.

    Mic connection for the singer-instrumentalist or for vocoder performance, with no other equipment needed
    The 1/4" MIC IN jack lets you connect a mic directly, so there's no need for a singer-instrumentalist to provide a separate mixer when performing live. A vocoder function is also built in and you can easily perform vocoder sounds with rapid access via the realtime control section. Also provided is a LINE INPUT stereo mini-jack that's convenient for connecting your audio player or for sampling.

    Also operates as a USB audio interface
    In addition to USB MIDI interface functionality, USB audio interface functionality is provided. You can connect Kross 2 to your Mac or Windows computer and enjoy DAW recording or easily use the instrument for playing in conjunction with your iPad or iPhone. Korg's Module high-quality sound module app (sold separately) can be used as an external sound module that's played from Kross 2, or you can perform with the backing of tracks that you created using the Korg Gadget DAW app (sold separately), all with the ease of connecting a single cable.

    A dedicated Kross 2 editor and plug-in editor are also provided. These let you edit while viewing numerous parameters at a glance on your computer, or allow you to use Kross 2 like a software synthesizer from within your DAW.
