    This sounds great

    There's a guy on SoundCloud, calls himself MagicIan, and he also has a Kronos. It's amazing what he creates, entirely within the keyboard.

    They kinda scare me, because I am so used to my computer and DAW now. I do have hardware, but nothing as complex and complete as the Kronos.


    Love how this piece develops. Change at four minutes is great... Some of the sounds are amazing


    At about 7:30, there's a guitar lead sound... The performance here, with the bends and the distortion are really good...

    I'm going to stop typing now, before I run out of intelligent things to say... Really enjoying this!


    cheers

      I have one arm, so I can't personally fathom doing anything other than DAW, and a main piano roll sequencer to go back in time with to compose all elaborately. So, this that you did interests me, I'm really into the dark cosmic idm change up after the world beat ambient at the beginning.

          With the 16-track sequencer, and set to over-dub in the record function, you could do your bass/rythm line, then go back and add the melody line on the overdub. The Kronos is pretty intuitive that way. You can also set up combi's that use the Karma function to add bass/drum lines while you play the melody lines in split key mode. There's a lot I'm still learning, but with the Korg forums and the YouTube tutorials, it makes it much easier. I don't see why you couldn't use one as well as anyone else with a little pre- setup, just like you do with your DAWs. Although this doesn't have a piano roll sequencer, you can edit the midi events if you get a missed note or a misplaced note.

          BTW, years ago when I started getting into composing in FL Studio, I had no midi keyboard so I had to rely heavily on the piano roll as well. I used to do entire albums on just what I composed in the piano roll, so I know what you're going through!
