I saw several recent posts inquiring about the Kronos so I thought I'd put this sample out as a reference of its sound power and flexibility. The changes of sounds here are not midi sequences, but are made in real time. The real time sound changes can be seen on the keyboard's own touch screen as a moving yellow block (of combination sound type like piano and strings, piano and chorus, guitar/harp etc). While my right hand played the melody, my left hand played the rhythm, my right foot worked the damper, and my left foot switched the sounds while I played. I lost a few pounds in practicing this. A Zoom digital recorder recorded the original Kronos audio live and the computer recorded midi data separately just for creating notation. I hope you enjoy it.

That was a really nice track. Keep it up smile
I wonder which switch pedal are you using for changing sounds?

Thanks Alex. I use a basic Yamaha FC4 pedal for switching sounds and a Roland DP-10 Real-Feel Pedal with Non-Slip Rubber Plate for the sustain. The Roland pedal has always been my favorite damper pedal as it has smooth quiet action and is slip resistant.
