For the most part, are kronos pretty reliable and stable? Of course there will be the exception for a small percentage of difficulties with some units, I was just seeing, as a whole from the kronos community, how is the stability and reliability of your current kronos, x and non x version..

Very good. Once in awhile I've noticed it can get a little finicky if you leave it one for a week or so, but a reboot always brings it back to "normal". Hard to explain what exactly are these issues as they seem kind of random, never catastrophic stuff though.

No problems with Kronos at all here and believe me, it gets a rigorous workout every day at home plus gigging.

My first Kronos 61 would freeze up for no apparent reason, but my current Kronos 61 hasn't exhibited any issues since I got it in December. When it arrived from the dealer, however, it had something rattling around in it (probably a loose screw). Whatever is in there, it's still rattling about on occasion. I suppose I should have that looked at before it shorts something out. Embarassed

Pay attention to never shut it down while it is loading. Mine got unplugged once durning power on and the the same patches would hang on the most sour sound. POR would not help. I loaded the roland only sounds then switched back to laoding the Kronos KSC and exteas, and every thing was fine. Other then a loud fan mine is great and the fan has settled down a bit so it is t nearly as bad as it was now on par with an old tower PC.

I have vast amounts of multi-samples from the two oriental sets that I have purchased plus samples from the six or seven M3 Oriental sets that I have found on the internet. There are many similar samples among them. So for the last month I had been working on loading all the samples, sorting them by instrument types, and deleting identical samples. Then sifting through the rest and keeping the good ones and deleting the not so good ones. So last weekend I was so close to the end of this work and I was saving the sampling data and then while saving, it froze right in the middle of saving the KSC file. I lost all my work for the last month. It left me with a KSC file that has about 25 percent of my sorted and sifted samples in it. So, sadly I have to start over again.

You never saved your work during the whole month?

Of course I had saved it. But each time I chose to over write the existing file. A better way to do it would be to save to a different folder so that if something goes bad you can still have the files that were previously saved.

The freezing during the saving of sampling data had also happened once before. But at that time it must have froze right at at the very end. After I rebooted I saw all the samples were saved properly in the KSC file. This time it happened in the middle of the saving operation. So about 25 percent got saved.

Thanks! I really need to get into the habit of backing my data up. Even my wife tells me too. Laziness is BAD! And it will come around to bite you!

Backing up frequently is like "good voodoo". Wink If you back up all the time and you've got nothing to lose, the keyboard or computer program will *never* crash. If you've got something extensive you've worked on that hasn't been saved in awhile, you're "asking for it."

I've gotten in the habit (with various programs) of saving every few minutes. Nothing ever happens. Then, one day, for whatever reason, I'm concentrating so deeply on what I'm doing that I forget to save for a half-hour or something - and of course, that is when the program will crash. It's like the program is consciously thinking "Aha, he hasn't saved this for at least a half-hour, I think I'll crash." Wink
