The Kross keyboard is a mobile keyboard workstation with audio/MIDI recording capabilities, AC or battery operation (6xAA), and a wide selection of sounds, available with 61 keys or 88 fully-weighted keys. The piano, electric piano, and drum sounds have been taken from some of Korg’s flagship instruments. The sounds from Korg’s SG-1D Sampling Grand and M1 Music Workstation are also included, as well as an upright piano.

The EDS-i sound engine is distilled from the EDS/EDS-X sound engines and allows a total of seven effects (five insert; two master) to be used simultaneously. In total, 134 effects are available. Kross also includes a 16-track MIDI sequencer with quantization, copy and paste, and individual note event editing, as well as an analog-style step sequencer inherited from Korg’s Electribe series. Both models can operate on an AC adapter or on six AA alkaline or nickel-metal hydride batteries.

Retail price: $699 (61-key), $999 (88-key).
