  • Are you getting a KRONOS?

    Many seem to be getting it, but I am not (for now at least). :cry:








    Will this forum be divided by who owns this beast, and who doesn't?

      I haven't any need or desire. All's good up in here.
      There are many other things I desire, decent active speakers, mic/stand.
      The next gen ipad comes out in April, will have two, yes II cameras. One on each side like some phones already carry.
      I can envision a new app type that allows the user to take two pics at once, if wanted, and place yourself in the other pic?

        I was prepared to be amazed.

        I wasn't amazed.

        Conclusion: No, thanks.

          I mean, I'm not opposed to the idea of getting a Kronos, but $3000 is still $3000.

            Ultimately, yes, getting a 61. :thu:

              Yes. It's time to replace my DX7 and I'm buying the Kronos 61 just for that. The competition has got some time until I save up the cash, so Yamaha had better hurry up with their DX7 keyboard successor ;-)

                If I got one it would be the 61 key

                I do not NEED a KRONOS (my focus is programmed and sequenced music)

                I would LOVE to own one (it has awesome cool synth engines and 61 keys would be nice to have)

                It would interrupt the learning curve of other gear that I do NEED and currently own

                Common sense tells me not to get one.

                I am sad that I must obey the puter in my head as it is a wise one :cry:

                  Not buying a KRONOS, but I intend to load up my M3m. I'm watching the prices
                  on the Radias EXB & the EXB M256 every day.

                  Radias hasn't dropped much on EBay. But EXB M256 price is falling.
                  I'd love to pick both up for <$300

                    Its a no-brainer if you previously had a collection of workstations like I did ( XS7, M3M, Extreme).

                    And since the Kronos has a huge acoustic piano, I can sell my Rd700GX1. From all indications, the Kronos will outperform all of my other boards. Its not easy letting go of my rig, since they are all great instruments.

                    I am looking forward to having 1 keyboard( 88) and all sounds under 1 hood. (I have a simple 49 key midi controller
                    for fast synth or hammond parts if I really need light action.)

                    I think the " Wakeman" approach of having multiple boards will be unnecessary.
                    It will be a good change. No need to access to 10,000 sounds spread across 4 or more
                    boards. I can always load samples to the Kronos if I feel it falls short on an instrument.

                      Yes. I think the Kronos 88 + Fusion 61 will be the ultimate synth rig.

                      Edit: And I must say that the Kronos being out there has killed so much GAS. I used to always be looking for a sequencer/drum machine on Ebay or Craigslist, trying to decide if I wanted an EMU PX-7 or an expanded MC-909... I was also looking into getting into a DAW environment instead of my hardware recorder...
                      Now since the Kronos does all that in such a nice, integrated package, I don't want any of these things anymore. Especially since my wife says we can budget for one this year

                          I probably won't be getting one. I think the Stage 2 is calling my name more at this point in time. I know it doesn't do what the Kronos does, but it does what I need in a really fine way.

                              I'll get one on Ebay when they go for 250 bucks - like the Trinity does at the moment. And remember: the Trinity got just as much oohs and aaahs and hype back then as the Kronos does now (and it was even warranted), so there! :cop:
