Has this happened on newer Kronos keyboards? Mine is the 61 key titanium edition.

Both my M3 exp and Karma keyboards have had no keyed issues and I’ve had them for years and years.

Should I be concerned?

Mike

This issue (and this thread) is only about the LS model, and only a small number of people seem to be affected. I also own a 61, and it's a different action, no problems there. I don't think you need to be concerned.

I would recommend to buy a Korg Kronos 88 with RH3 action. This is the best and sturdy keybed you can get!

I have a Korg Kronos X 88 from the year 2015 and never had any problem with the keybed.

It's huge and it's sturdy!!

Indeed! I owned a 2 88 for three years with no issues – either with the RH3 action, which is extremely high quality, or with crashing / boot up / etc. I now own a Titanium 61, which also has a great semi-weighted keybed – very playable, even for piano.

Some have reported issues with the LS and "sinking keys." Having played it in a local music store, I found it to be lacking in resistance and spring back. I would not buy an LS for that reason; plus no AT. YMMV

I have contacted John McCubbery, Vice President, Worldwide Marketing at KORG and brought the problem to his attention.

Hopefully we will get some answers soon.
