In conjunction with the release of the new Kronos, Korg will release KRONOS System Version 3.0 in early December 2014, available for all existing and future KRONOS and KRONOS X owners. The more feature-rich system as included in the new Kronos can be downloaded free of charge and allows nearly all the functionality* of the new KRONOS, including the ability to add in the new SGX-2 premium piano sound engine as featured in the new Kronos.
In addition, KORG is releasing the EXs19 KaPro Private Collection, a "best of" bank of KaPro sounds from many of the diverse KRONOS EXs libraries created over the years. It is offered as a free download for new KRONOS 2 customers and will be available to owners of the KRONOS and KRONOS X at a special introductory price of $49 (standard price is $99) through December 31, 2014. It can be downloaded from Korg.com/KronosSoundLibraries
* PCM data for the Berlin Piano, which will also be available for separate purchase, is expected to be released in late January (price TBD)
