Krog Krome Key Dynamics Demo

The Korg Krome fills a lot of niche purposes in the studio, and is being promoted by Korg as a professional keyboard. But have a look at the poor dynamic response of Krome’s keys. You can reproduce this phenomena on the Krome 61 or 73 by pressing a key down , holding it, then, as you release it, immediately press it again. Once you press it again and hold it, you can continuously press as I do in the video  with no response whatsoever. Not good.

Oops: Early hardware problems for Krome?

korg krome screen error

At least three different people have posted to the Krome forum reporting error messages on the Krome’s screen. At least one person is reporting an irremediable error: System error id : 216 Task id : 1 line : 0124 //source/hardware/T01PCMMemory.cpp. Check the attached image of his touch screen. See that little white patch? That’s the error message. Notice the progress bar has stopped at about 5%. This is not a good sign (especially for a guy who lives in Switzerland Sweden who bought his Krome in Germany). Hopefully Korg has a hot fix for this issue.
