Melville, NY – March 29th, 2016

Korg’s Kronos is now available with a Light-Touch keyboard, packing the power of a full-sized performance synth and a responsive action into a 40-pound package. Equipped with nine sound engines, up to 16 simultaneous effects, and 16 part combinations, the Kronos LS offers everything it’s fully-weighted counterparts do, with a newly designed action that lends to any playing style. 

Kronos LS also ships with the most recent operating system, offering new Quick Layer/Split via the large, color Touchscreen. Splits and Layers can also be saved on the spot into a Combination, saving players considerable editing time and providing more flexibility for live situations.

“The new Light-Touch key bed is incredibly responsive, and allows for gestures that might be difficult or uncomfortable on a fully-weighted action,” exclaims James Sajeva, Director of Technology Brands at Korg USA. “It also brings the weight of an 88-note Kronos down considerably. It's really a great blend of portability and playability,” Sajeva concludes.

The new Kronos LS encompasses a wide array of sounds and options, perfect for any type of musician. Literally thousands of single and layered/split sounds are available, all searchable by name and category, and all assignable to the easy to manage Set List mode.

The Kronos LS touts a new dark umber brushed aluminum panel and beautifully crafted two-tone burst wood side panels, available in April 2017 for $3499.99. For more information, visit www.korg.com.
