    Not sure this qualifies as a "major" announcement.

      The choice of name is interesting. You'd think they might worry a bit that Google would get upset at using the name Krome. No, Google isn't in the musical instrument business, but people have sued over such name similiarities even if a product isn't in the same industry.

        It looks to be made for people who know they probably wouldn't use the advanced features and synthesis engines of the Kronos and just want the palette of sounds, and gigging musicians who want something lightweight that sounds good



        Sounds like you mean someone like myself. Well, I want even less. I really want a stage piano with Korg's best sounds. But I have no need for a touch screen, sequencer, drum machines or recording. A multitimbral SV1 with better organs would have been just the ticket for me.

            Forgive me, but apart from the nicer touch screen and a new piano sound, is there really anything that makes this worth ditching my M50?? It's not looking worth the upgrade so far, especially if they haven't improved the keybed. I also happen to think it looks fugly as sin.




            Do you use the cord assign buttons?

                Google Chrome has a different spelling, so there's no real conflict.

                  It's not as simple as that. If you came out with a browser called Krome, google could probably get on you for that. Trademark law is not cut and dried, but is somewhat tied to how likely a similar name is to cause market confusion. In addition, Chrome is a regular english word (unlike, say, Kleenex), so that further will further limit (but not eliminate) the claims they can make on the term.

                      I understand that. But the fact that they're dissimilar products with differently spelled names being offered in completely disparate markets pretty much eliminates any controversy over trademark priority.

                          As much as I initially thought them useless, I actually did end up using them. I do wish they were assignable to different functions other than chord triggering. I wouldn't really miss them to be honest.



                          What I really wanted was to be able to change arp or drum track patterns on the fly in combi mode.

                            I heard 1200$ Sounds about right then.



                            so what's the difference between krome and m50? m50 is the m3 engine and krome is the kronos engine?

                              I want some midrange workstation to replace my good ol' Motif 7. All I want is good synth action keyboard, aftertouch and basic workstation-sounds to get me going without computer. I thought that Krome would be winner after my disappointment with MOX (same 64 polyphony as my original Motif, no aftertouch), but no. When did manufacturers decide that midrange workstations don't need aftertouch?

                                Maybe look for a used Motif XS (or XF)? In a new board, the closest to what you want might be a Kurzweil PC3LE.
