Are Korg digital pianos good?
Digital Pianos Suitable for Beginners Two of the best options from Korg for digital pianos suited for beginners are the Korg SP 170 and the Korg LP 180.

What is Korg famous for?
Korg was the first company to feature effects on a synthesizer, and the first to use a “sample + synthesis” sound design. The M1 workstation, released in 1988, sold over 250,000 units, making it the bestselling synthesizer ever at that time.
Is Roland or Korg better?
The keyboards that you mentioned are more of arrangers, so have no views on them. But for stage instruments Roland provides better “real instrument” sounds in its factory presets whereas Korg has better “stage/synth” sounds.
Which keyboard is closest to a piano?

How does the 2019 Korg Krome ex compare to the Kross Krome?
The Krome actually predates the Kross, which introduces some complications to that basic comparison. This time, we’re reviewing the 2019 Krome EX, a much-needed update to the 2012 Korg Krome, which was starting to show its age, especially when compared to the similarly priced alternatives such as Roland’s FA-06 and the Yamaha MODX.
What is the difference between the Korg Kronos and Korg Kross 2?
One of our recent reviews covered the Korg Kross 2, which was a synthesizer-focused entry-level workstation. We loved it, but it focused much more on the performance aspect, leaving the arrangement capabilities on the side. The Krome is one level above the Kross, while the Kronos is their most advanced workstation.
Is the Krome ex joystick worth it?
The Krome EX opts for the Roland-style joystick instead of the classic pitch- and modwheel combo. By default, horizontal movement controls pitch bend, whereas vertical movement handles modulation. Whether or not this is an upside comes down to your personal preference. I personally love the joystick configuration, especially for synth leads.
What is the difference between Krome and Krome ex?
The design of the Krome EX hasn’t changed much since the original. The body is primarily plastic, but it is still well-built and should last you for a good while. The good number of mint-condition Kromes on sale proves this point nicely. The main difference of the Krome EX is the refreshed color scheme.
