Looks like a smaller keyboard for me. Bigger keyboards don't have the keys so exposed to protect them against shaking during transport.

If I were you I would buy a keybord in EU.
Replacement ( if needed ), warranty etc ... will be easier for you.

The pitch bend and modulation wheels, and possible vector joystick, are reminiscent of the Wavestation, or maybe it's some sort of Prologue-Minilogue XD fusion. Sample management has been mentioned elsewhere on the forum.


It turned out to be the Wavestate!!

Fascinating to read this, I'm in exactly the same boat.
I fell in love with the Kronos about 18 months ago when I first started to learn piano and I've wanted one ever since.
I'll be setting up my home studio in 5 or 6 weeks so I've been trying to finalise my decision on what I'll buy. I want to go down the NI S88 MK2/Komplete 13 route because I want to learn to compose as well as record/mix my music. But I also want a Kronos. I want to be able to just sit down and play and have Karma, drum track etc at my disposal without having to bother with a laptop to change from an EP to a Hammond to a Steinway. I want to be able to play a bass guitar in left hand and a piano in the right...I want to be able to change the sounds of synths and be able to just press "record" and get my ideas down without using a mouse to click on my DAW.......

I know the Kronos is more than I actually need and I should spend the money on extra Virtual Instruments/plugins.....but I just damn well want one so much!!

Think about trying to find a mint used K2 then… it would ease the purchase pain a bit, give a better sense of value (IMHO), and I can tell you from first-hand experience that there are very lightly used K2s on the secondary market.

Should be able to find a good one for a very reasonable discount.
