This has my interest. I have been looking at paring down my setup and ditching the Axiom/Rack altogether. I am also curious what the key action is like. I rather like my Axiom Pro, and I liked the Kurzweil PC3 I tried, but I looked at a MOX6 (which is my other main contender) and its "semi-weighted" keys felt like synth action to me.

****************ing idiots, again no aftertouch on the board in that price range. What a failure. It is really not expensive to add AT, in fact I bet it wouldn't raise the end price least bit if they had it in there. There's no facepalm big enough.

Sadly, yes, I've corrected that post. There was a google translation of a Japanese page that seemed to imply there might have been some kind of AT implementation, oh well. That makes this quite a bit less interesting to me. I see it as basically an M50 with better piano and EP sounds... which is not a bad thing, by any means, but not as enticing as I'd hoped. Though unlike the M50, the 88 key Krome is at least weight-competitive with the MOX, and, as I mentioned, I like the panel layout.
The 88 is much lighter, the other models are heavier. That's why I think the 88 is the most interesting model in the lineup. The 61 and 73 don't seem to offer much over the older M50 except better piano and EP, and if that's your concern, you probably want the weighted action anyway.
well doen on that...great demo guy too...here was me thinking the korg krome was just a piano thing!
Oh and that's a strength over the recent Jup80/50/Integra. It's not presets plus VA tweaks and some tweaks on sound, its a full on synth with double filters and you can hear the dynamics in that demo Luke pulled out...
Unfortunately KORG seem to rely on wooing peeps with ''big expensive'' Piano well sampled demo's... They really NEED to do more of what Luke did as that side and the stuff he did not do is as important...
I suspect the keybed on this will be like the M50 plastic hinge to reach the price point... but even so it will probably sell well. I just hope the KORG curse has lifted... They were so unlucky with the data wheel issue on the KRONOS... if they had held that stock in a warehouse for a few months the gunk would have been dry enough for those wheels to stay put me thinks...
I bemoan the absence of AT as well, but I haven't seen confirmation of the pricing yet... I would assume that, whatever these sell for, Yamaha and Roland aren't offering AT at the same price either. I wish they would put AT on their midrange boards, even if they had to up them $100 or whatever.
