whatever it is it better has A LOT of knobs and a huge screen. I can't deal without these things. Sound quality comes second to these requirements

It's just going to be a midi controller, and they will reveal the full name to be... KronosTrigger! heh

This is more likely:

KRONOS
OASYS

Not digging yet another workstation no matter how huge the LCD will be. An all knob design is more desirable. Lil dreaming outside the box:

KEYBOARD MONOS

Edit: Got it now: Korg Releases Oasys New Operating System. heh

I don't expect much from Korg anymore... It seems they choose to turn the company into a plastic toy-factory.
But if Kronos is not one more little plastic toy, it could be the next generation OASYS (which I doubt... most probably one more fancy toy) .

maybe they will expand on their monotron and do a analogue mono synth. That would be cool. I'll be kinda annoyed if its just another workstation.

I sneaked a peak at the page code and found this:

''KORG_Kronos_Teaser_Jan2011_R3_634286124873140000.swf' />''


Although I am still betting on a new wave station the Radias and R3 are getting on a bit so I wonder if they have goofed leaving R3 there. Could it be the replacement for that... in this economy small replacements are less risky....

If that nine is there over 24hrs (not a count down) then it must mean something

9 way wavestation
9 multiple synth engines
9 voice R3 replacement hybrid synth

"Prepare to Be Amazed"

Hmm, the more prepared I am to be amazed the less amazed I will be, right?

Is this irony or paradox?

It's matrix marketing, whoa

And yes, a tabletop Yoko might be worth considering.

Well the Korg site is still saying '9' this morning, so I guess that isn't a count down. KRONOS 9 then.

Also, these pre-release teasers spark these 'large interest guessing threads' that im sure are a treasure trove of 'marketing data' for a manufactuer to lap up. At least they can see what everyone is hoping for, and are taking notes. ...Hopefully.

look isnt it obviously time for a new flagship the m3 was such a poor marketing movement after the triton, so i am led to believe that kronos is the new triton. It is a good name choice too it will grab all the kiddies that are now bored of god of war on their play stations.

i don't know what to tell korg to do for their hardware but i would love to see a prophecy/z1 soft synth. Perhaps drill down the oasys back to a hardware firewire or usb box for the computer?
Old 2nd January 2011

Whatever it is my guess is that it has a street price of less than $1000 -just seems to be the focus of korg lately. I'd be surprised if they discontinue the M3 now as the triton series lasted a lot longer, unless its not selling well due to the economy and workstation market in general.

''Only Cronus was willing to do the deed, so Gaia gave him the sickle and placed him in ambush. When Uranus met with Gaia, Cronus attacked him with the sickle castrating him and casting his testicles into the sea.''

GAIA owners thinking of adding KRONOS to the studio, consider carefully the placement of uranus

To be honest, "9" as a number for synth somehow doesn't work for me.

I hope its some new software. I have more or less zero faith in new Korg hardware.
