Product information - Korg KRONOS SE 88

Synthesizer Workstation

The Kronos SE 88 by Korg is a workstation and synthesizer combination with an 88 key hammer action keyboard. The powerful instrument is equally suitable for studio and stage musicians who don't want to miss anything in their work. With a new surface and new concert grand sound, the limited Special Edition of the KRONOS is a delight for the eye and ear. As a special bonus, a "KApro Showcase" with carefully selected sounds from the manufacturer KApro is pre-installed, which has already produced over 100 KRONOS sound libraries. The chic new colour finish and the unmistakable sound of the KRONOS make the difference on every stage.

  • Limited special edition of the successful Synthesizer Workstation
  • New "Italian Piano" concert grand piano sound
  • KApro Showcase with many additional sounds
  • Extravagant Sunburst Design


Model updates and fine-tuned developments ensure that the well-engineered and proven instrument is an even better one.

Thanks to innovative ideas and state-of-the-art technologies coupled with maximum drive, the best and most powerful synthesizer ever was created:

KRONOS features nine independent sound engines including the new SGX-2 Premium Piano Engine, a new Berlin D-Grand piano including 12 dynamic piano layers, string resonance, Una Corda function and 9 gigabyte sample content.

The lush sound selection was created by the world's best sound designers including KRONOS Expansion Libraries, Artist Signature Sounds and many preset sounds of famous songs.

Intuitive operation via the TouchView colour display:

The new TouchView colour display enables fast and intuitive work thanks to the Touch & Drag function.

The Set List mode is now displayed with many new color options, text sizes and a full-screen text editor, providing even more customization and a better overview.

Thanks to the numeric keys located directly next to the display, you can make patches and edit presets without any detours, which is an immeasurable asset on stage.

If required, texts and numbers can also be entered via a connected USB computer keyboard.

Full control thanks to numerous controls:

KRONOS SE 88 offers not only a clear touch display, but also many other refinements that keep the musician in control of the musical events. Whether composing in the studio or rockin' on stage: the clearly designed panel enables the immediate implementation of your creative ideas. The joystick is the first step and can be used in a classic manner to blend four vectors (components) of a sound continuously. Other functions can also be freely assigned to the joystick by the user.

Custom programming of all operating elements is easy with the clearly arranged display! The assignments of the multi-assigned rotary knobs can be conveniently read on the panel and enable direct intervention and immediate changes in several dimensions of the extremely powerful KRONOS synthesis. For volume adjustments of the channels 1-16 numerous faders are built in. In addition to the main volume control, the volume of the sum signal can also be controlled via a dedicated "MASTER" fader, which is helpful for complex effect routings and other complex circuitry.
