Yep, the FX in a PC3 series or Forte are really good.
At least you recognize when diving into the editing experience and create your own FX chains for your programs and performances.
When it comes to "Insert FX Chains", these keyboards are the most flexible ones, and Forte doubles DSP power for FX vs PC3.

Then I would add to your maxim, Greg:
“Innovation is never a single event. It is a long process of discovery, engineering, interaction and transformation.”

Rumor has it from someone in a Facebook group that they have seen a Krome EX. Person says that it’s the same look but in a “grayish shiny color”, does not have faders, has roughly the same number of sounds, and the piano is way better when compared to the Krome sitting next to it. Supposed to be revealed this month. NDA with someone otherwise.


Interested to say the least.

Not to digress to much...

The book “Where Good Ideas Come From” by Steven Johnson puts it in this way. Both evolution and innovation tend to happen within the bounds of the adjacent possible, in other words the realm of possibilities available at any given moment. So it's a long process of discoveries, which step only possible with the choices presented from the previous one.

Sounds plausible, but I'm not sure reviving the EX designation is a good idea. It's very 2002, somehow.

I do hope they'll give it a better action; it's the one thing I really dislike about mine. But I'll probably get one either way.

Stage 2 EX was more recent. I think it adds to the confusion, though that may be the point. idk


Edit: Post is gone now. I forgot to mention that this new Krome is apparently “Version 2.0”. Not sure what they mean by that unless it has something to do with updated midi standards?

Korg can't make a synth keybed worth a second note. They should just crawl back to Yamaha for decent keys.
