  • Does Korg Krome 61 have a User Bank or Favorites band for live performance

    I am considering purchasing a Korg Krome and was impressed with the sounds. However, one thing I have NOT been impressed with in some Korg synths is that some of them were designed WITHOUT a User Bank or Favorites bank. For a pro performer, the first thing you do is put your favorite patches (i.e. strings, piano, organ, orchestral, lead, etc.) in a User Bank of up to 20 patches so you can access them in ONE keystroke during live performance. You memorize those key numbers and often transfer that system to new synths you get as well. I still remember purchasing a TR61 which forever sat in the closet because it was so useless on live gigs.

    Some of these synth designers....do they actually play real pro gigs? If a keyboard is not effective (user friendly) in the field (i.e. on a live stage) it is almost worthless. It seems inconceivable that any synth designer could be so out of touch with real live performance world so as not to include a User or Favorites Bank.

    Anyway, can the Krome be set up with a User Bank or Favorites Bank?
