  • With the Kronos can I use more than one engine at once on the keyboard?

    engines split into parts on the keyboard? I have looked at the books but have not seen anything like this.

    or more than 2 or 3 also.

    thanks.

    yes yes yes

    you can "combine" engines in the synthesis too.

    my aim is to get it 2014. but..... I may succumb to the temptation

      I have not seen any proof of this yet. Did I miss something in the books? Anyone know what page this part is on?

        in the kronos demos, they explained u can stack few engines at one time, in the performance mode. so there you go !
        they even demoed it
        and they showed how a certain sound from another engine can be "mixed/modulated" with another - not sure how to explain

          I am waiting for the Kronos II before I buy one.
          Double everything and a gold plated case for that 'pimp tite' look.
          yo'
          Rest in Peace Rudy.

            Yes, you can stack engines in Combi mode.

              on the OASYS you can stack engines in a patch, isn't each patch 2 "oscillators", each selected from one of the engines?

                Yes, however I think you cannot mix HD-1 with EXi within a patch. Patch has either to be both oscillators HD-1, or a combination of different EXi. Same goes for banks - you cannot mix HD-1 and EXi patches in the same bank (which is a very stupid limitation).

                    EXi are all engines that are not HD-1. So yeah - when you have an EXi bank, you can save patches for all 8 non-HD-1 engines to it. If it's a HD-1 bank... only HD-1 programs go there.

                        programs vs. combis.

                          Bank - patch area (you have Program banks and Combi banks). Performance = Combi in Korgspeak.

                            Operating Guide P. 15: "Combinations, or 'Combis' for short, let you split and layer up to 16 Programs at once." No restrictions are listed.

                            A simplified way to looks it is is that "Engines" are different ways to create programs, using different interfaces and different underlying software. But once you create a program, regardless of how, it is simply a program like any other. You don't need to know what engine was used to create a program in order to be able to use it in any way you'd like.
