    Not final versions yet. That's what I'm working on now, actually.


    lol, thank you. Please let me know if you need somebody to do a French translation of it

    • Breaking News, "For the first time in history, 2 different products have the same manual. Millions of trees have been saved. Global warming is now a myth since the Amazon will do just fine".

      Anybody know if the Kronos manual/s is/are available in PDF format yet?






      I'll bet if you look at the manuals for Motif, Motif ES, Motif XS, and Motif XF, they're almost identical, with a few minor updates for the changes. Same could probably said for all workstation manufacturers.

        And as SOON as they're done, the KRONOS ships, right?

        Right?!

        Just kidding... no pressure.

        ...but please hurry!

          • So is everyone replacing "C's" with "K's" with electronic instruments?

            I though it was just NI. This is a fad that doesn't need to happen.


            be serious.

            I have already replaced the first letter of my first/last name with a " K "

            Rumor has it ( maybe I am starting it that Phil Collins is into Kronos & is now Phil Kollins

                        • Yes - within the sample playback block, you can modulate the pitch and volume of the samples, including modulating with LFOs that (as I just got to test!) go into the low audio ranges (above 300Hz). I keep wanting to say more, but there's far too much to describe briefly. mildbill's advice seems on target: download the manuals from:
                          https://www.korguser.net/oasys/download/#manuals
                          ...and I'll be happy to answer any questions.

                          I'd ask, but I think you've answered everything. Every single one of my needs in a sample synth is more than met within the Kronos's architecture. I'm kind of amazed. I am 95% sure I'm buying one of these, with the 5% reservation waiting for a hands on test of the interface. The Oasys interface simulation, from what I can see looks fantastic though. Thanks again for your help Dan

                            I will pay an extra $50 if the manual is 2X as long as planned with the depth of material and info to go with the length (no blank pages, double-spaced type, cartoons, or multiple languages in the same volume). There is nothing like a big thick manual!

                            Here is a question for you Dan. Is the development for an instrument like Kronos done primarily in Japan or is there a development team in the USA or other country as well? I would guess there is plenty of marketing input taken from all over the globe, but I am curious about the makeup of the core development teams. I work in R&D in a sort of inverse situation where the development teams for our divisions are located primarily in the USA and working with smaller focused teams from OUS R&D and tech service facilities. It is hard to do this, especially with a 12 hour time delay.

                                As with the OASYS, there's the development team based here in California ("Korg R&D") that I'm part of, and another development team in Japan. Generally speaking, we've been responsible for the realtime synth and audio aspects of the software system, and the Japanese team has done the sequencer, sampling, and hardware/mech. It's a collaborative process with a pretty large group of people. Keyboard did an article about the dev team during the OASYS launch.
