Korg Announces Expanded KROSS2-88 MB

A day after releasing the NTS-1 DIY digital synthesizer, Korg have announced a stunning new KROSS2-88 model with upgraded sounds and a new matte black finish.

Melville, NY – September 5th, 2019 – KORG has expanded on the KROSS 2 series with the launch of the KROSS2-88 MB; a supercharged version that includes the expressive sounds of the original, as well as an additional expansion that adds all-new programs including a beautifully resonant acoustic piano.  

Designed to be the frontrunner in any performance rig, the KROSS2-88 MB features all the essentials, far exceeding its class in power and usability. The new synthesizer offers a diverse array of more than 1,000 presets, adding richer tones for a more refined sound including piano and electric piano. For a more cutting-edge style, the KROSS2-88 MB comes equipped with synth and drum sounds, including 27 drum track patterns newly added to the latest model.

Like many other keyboards in the KORG family, the KROSS2-88 MB features KORG’s Natural Weighted (NH4) Hammer Action keybed, offering a realistic and comfortable approach to playing. The NH4 delivers authentic piano with less overall weight, adding to KROSS2-88MB’s portability.

James Sajeva, Director of Music Technology Brands at KORG USA, Inc. states “We’re excited that KORG has continued to enhance the KROSS family; a synthesizer that has always been known for its extensive sounds and features that cater to songwriters, composers, and gigging musicians alike. The KROSS2-88 MB takes the 88-note model to the next level with great new sounds and more of them, all wrapped in a beautiful, durable rubberized matte finish,”.

The KROSS 2-88 MB is undeniably sleek in its super matte black rubberized finish and offers all-new pianos, EP’s, drum kits, and synth sounds dedicated to modern music production and performance alongside KROSS’ already expansive collection of sounds.
