I think that new workstation won't be called Kronos rather and I read somewhere Poseidon it makes sense and it may have (I am guessing) huge high definition touchscreen multiple outputs more of everything i.e processor memory synth engines plenty of led lights
ect but it will cost much more so I am not worried that my Kronos will lose value it will cost the same but new workstation will cost about 4500£ or more so for power user's with cash to spare Korg will make you happy.

The best Workstation that Korg could make, would be a cloudWS with thousands sounds, combi effects and tracks in the air. A musical beast as immaterialized as the music is...

that would be following what Roland promised a year ago.

I am sure that gigging keyboardists would be hesitant to always rely on strong network/wireless for sound.

Since storage is super cheap , some type of hybrid might make sense.

My impression is that Korg is not a ' follower' . More of a market place ' creator '
and innovator.

I am interested in their current business strategy. We naturally over focus on Kronos since that is a passion.

Korg covers 14 different 'product groups' . Keyboards/synths is 1 of the 14 and likely what Korg is best know for.

I like to see what the bigger picture is. Even that is not completely clear:

Upgrade to Kronos OS for gigging musicians who use the board as a backing band:

Set List for Sequencing: Automatic advance at the end of the song (sequenced) to the next (or your choice) set list button and the ability to choose whether or not the next song starts immediately (chain play) or waits til the next start/stop command is pressed.

Comments in set list: Would be great to have a screen for comments and notes attached directly to the song sequence file that would show up in the comments section when a sequence is assigned to a set list button. This would allow you to easily recall song structure and other important info about the sequence when you haven't played a song in a while. Set list seems to presuppose that you gig with the same set list night after night so comments are saved there. In a church worship setting I have 300 songs and the set list changes every week. I might not do a song for 6 months so having comments about the nuances of the tune attached to the song sequence file for immediate import into the set list would be wonderful.

Just a kronos module would do for me. I could then leave my heavyweight kronos 88 at home and use a lighter weighted 88 keyboard for gigging. Laughing

I have a really simple request:

Allow the Foot Switch to be assignable in Set List. I'd like to use it for Start/Stop on Sequences and KARMA Latch in Combis.

Fix the bug with USB audio incompatibility between Kronos and OSX!

More flexible USB midi routing. For example, I'd like to use an external midi controller plugged into a USB port to play either internal Kronos timbres or external modules or soft synths connected to other USB ports.

Enhancements to Set List Comments:
- Support multiple comments pages per slot
- Allow import of .txt, .pdf etc files (charts, sheet music) via USB
- Move the damned "Cancel" button on the comment editing screen to a location where you are less likely to hit it accidentally and lose your changes! (Or at least add an "are you sure?" dialog before blowing away edits!)

My wishlist has remained relatively unchanged for the past few years, and shares much in common with the wishes of others.


    Support for more sample RAM
    More power!
    Ability to display and work in linear timecode (hh:mm:ss) in the sequencer (as well as bars/beats).
    Support for receiving MIDI Time Code
    Multi-channel digital IO
    Larger screen
    Ability to label controls in the External Control mode
    Ability to install EXS expansions from the external hard drive (so they can be transferred via FTP).
    More banks and improved bank referencing (wave sequences are aweseome but a pain to work with when using third-party soundsets).
    Ability to change the active track when recording / improved loop recording workflow.
    When editing samples, the ability to audition samples whilst changing the loop points.

Well, it has been a while. Got wrapped up in two album projects and lusting after studio gear. Anyhow...

Along with the above lists - put the good ones together and KORG can keep dominating for three years - here are mine.
  • More piano models, including popular vintage keyboards like harpsichord, Yamaha CP-80 Electric Grand and Hohner Pianet Duo.
  • A streamlined Wavestation-like wavelist set up.
  • Either figure out how to make a world class Lexicon/Yamaha quality reverb, or license one of theirs.
  • Comprehensive sampling processing, including creation of wavetables and granular processing.
  • Have a virtual modular VA like Nord G2 and Arturia Origin, with enough horsepower to make a polyphonic Moog Modular III, ARP 2500 or Roland System 700. Include all the best oscillator and filter models, as well as obscure effects like Bode Frequency Shifter.
  • Keyboard with polyphonic pressure, and a large ribbon a la CS-80 and Kurzweil.
  • Lots of rotary encoders and sliders on the panel, as well as velocity and pressure sensitive pads.
  • Much larger solid state drive and much more fast ram.

Also, a separate analog synth like a Trident III, Chroma or Polaris II, and a virtual modular keyboard for those who just want a VA synth to go with their existing Kronos.

Support for VST3 modules for a synth engine as well as VST effects on effects buss.

This is a wish list after all.

Would be hard to manage the resources but I figured someone had to put it here.

Perhaps externalizing to a larger monitor with full modular patch cord style synth modules to assemble your own sounds as an engine to the Korg set.

Got one more here.

Back in the 60s and 70s Bell Labs had developed an additive synthesis keyboard (experimental of course) used by Walter (Wendy) Carlos. It used a sine wave table approach where the phase and amplitude of each harmonic could be specified and the sound was generated accordingly.

Using a phase shift, the sine wave amplitude was controlled with very low overhead as computers back then were very slow. I have used such a pattern in Synthedit modules and have achieved very clear output with no aliasing distortions at any frequency.

You can also control the relationships of harmonics to get stiff string effects like pianos and steel or bell like harmonics.

The difficulty is in managing envelopes for the harmonics since there can be many a the lower frequencies.

Just thought it might be a cool idea for an engine of some sort.
