I would like to see functions like:

find and remove duplicate programs (across all banks) and update all references in all combinations accordingly

compacting removing empty programs in a bank and update all references in all combinations accordingly

combination: removing of unused effect slots and compacting all effects in a way that a free block for effects is created after the last effect slot and update all references for the timbres.

the volume across all programs is so different and switching between programs is nearly impossible without manuell level changes, which is nasty in live situations. So you always have to create combinations to achieve a similar level.

some programs are so quite, you barely here them in a combination mix even if the volume is set to 127 for that timbre. The only solution I found is to add one amplifier to boost the level. Don't know if this the only solution, but this forces me to use the same send 1/2 level for all sounds I need to boost, or to add multiple amp effects. To me it looks like the sounds are so different in volume, that 0..127 has not enough headroom to balance them out in a combination.

To me it looks like the Karma section has some UI errors especially the "run mode" does not always reflect the current state.

Especially Karma Scene Switching breaks Karma settings of a Timbre (Program) in combination mode).

Some cleanup in arpeggiators OR samples better documentation. I tried for days to just have a 1/16 pattern (dadadadada...) but failed horribly in all ways I tried. Maybe I am not clever enough in this area to master my Kronos

The UI interface for the different Instruments might be nice for Users who are familiar with the real hardware. To me the UI is confusing. I want to have at least the possibility to switch between a layout based on the original synth and a plain and clear UI using the same controls and same grouping of functions regardless the underlying model/simulation, logically structured. I personally do not need a picture to see how the piano looks open/closed.

Sarcastic or sardonic? I've never quite understood the difference. I'll use sardonic sometimes just to sound more intellectual, like I know the difference. The person I'm talking to probably doesn't know the difference either so they won't bother to try to correct me if I use it incorrectly. If they do ask me for the definition of sardonic, I'll just point and say "Squirrel!"

Oh yeah, almost forgot - there's already a topic for Kronos enhancement requests:

Sardonic: grimly mocking or cynical.
Sarcastic: marked by or given to using irony in order to mock or convey contempt.
Just looked it up on Google.😁

Okay thanks I understand now. Sarcastic is more like funny; ironic, saying the opposite of what you mean. Sardonic is cynical and mean without the irony. So, sarcastic it was.
