DaveMcM Posted September 14, 2013 Share Posted September 14, 2013 I just traded in my Roland RD700GX w/SuperNATURAL Piano Upgrade for a Korg Krome 88. What a great decision that has turned out to be. The acoustic and electric pianos sound and respond beautifully. There are a huge selections of strings, brass, synth, etc. and killer drums. While the jury is still out in my mind as to whether or not I like touch screens, it is growing on me. I havent used a touch screen since owning a Trinity Pro which was smaller and grey scale. The larger color screen on the Krome does help a lot. One of the coolest things about this instrument is how easy it is to edit/create your own sounds and combinations, in part due to the huge display and also the UI design. Zoning parts across the keyboard, routing effects, adjusting levels, etc. are a real joy compared to what I just left. In just 30 minutes or so I have been able to re-create all of the set-ups I had in the RD700GX only with far better sounds and far more control over them. The only thing I will miss is the mostly metal case of the RD700GX versus the mostly plastic case of the Krome. But then again, I bought a decent case for the Krome and nobody touches it except me. There is one major downside to owning the Krome as I see it This thing makes me want a Kronos really bad. Wm.
