Old post, but..
I chose the Kross 2 because:
1. Portability, I can even bring it on a plane.
2. Lightweight, tired of carrying heavy keybs in my age...
3. Sounds are good enough compared to price/weight. (pianos in my EMU E64 are way better, but the sampler is heavy....
4. I can make music directly on it, for backing as a one man band, or composing.
If I did not have to carry it around, I would have chosen the Krome or Grand ...
And, I have never liked the sound of Roland and Yamahas..... Smile

I don't own one yet, so didn't vote, but it's on my "to buy" list.

One thing I would love to see, in the format of Kross: rompler dedicated to synth sounds. Something like Arturia did with their "lab" series, only in the Korg rompler way. With sequencer and knobs, yet not too many. Thank you for reading this, Korg representative! Very Happy

Picked "Live performance", but my Kross 88 is integral part of my home studio, as well

I was thinking to buy Kross 2 and was lets say 90% determined to do it. However that euforia dropped below 50% after I tried it for an hour or two in local store and got next conclusion
- Could be Triton successor
- It's not Triton successor. Why?

Sad No numerical patch choosing, even though there are 16 pads that could be used) - it could use 1-10 along with 11 for 10's hold toggle though - why this didn't happen - don't have a F* clue - so happy navigating between 511 user patches and turning knob as a weirdo
Sad Octave switch with knob cuts sound completely.
Rolling Eyes Reverb/delay effects available as MFX2 only - MFX1/IFX have only 110ms delay and this sucks big time for me. I don't even understand the reason... what, reverb + longer delay (suitable for lead sounds) is just that CPU-heavy?

Those isuses could be solved with OS update but I highly doubt that company as big as KORG will bother to fix such things. Not to mention that shift + page+/- could be used for key transpose shortcut or shift + dial could dial patches +10 rather than +1.

And I find it a pity - if those issues could be handled and could replace old Triton for many users especially because of lightweight design that was most appealing to me. But... playing something that cuts sound completely on octave up/down or not having an option to use different reverbs/delays (as IFX) or having delay + reverb (MFX1 & 2) is just wrong in 2018.

However with those limitations, KROSS will be more single-timbre based synth and it's fine, but in that case, price should be even lower.

PS - I forgot to try changing octaves while drum track is playing - could someone test this out to me and tell if the drum track stops as well?
