How to use Quick Layer on the Korg Kronos

When you are on a Program sound in the Korg Kronos, you can add a Quick Layer very easily.

Simply tap the blue button labeled Quick Layer, and you will see the following:

As you can see, and hear when you play, there is now a second sound layered with the first! You will probably want to adjust the volume of the second sound to bring it down in the mix, using the slider as shown here:

You can also change either sound by clicking the right-facing “arrow in a box” that is just to the left of the program name. Tapping that icon will bring up the Bank/Program Select screen:

Now that you know how to enhance your playing ability using layered sounds, you can have even more fun playing your Korg Kronos!!

I’ve been playing keyboard since I was about 8, but have never taken formal lessons. I’m self taught and mostly play by ear. I have a YouTube channel for my music, and one for my Basenji’s!

If you’re interesting in computer programming, feel free to check out my blog, where I post the things I’ve been learning about PHP, Laravel, and other technologies.

Although I don’t ride BMX, I love to watch Scotty Cranmer’s YouTube channel. As one of my personal programming projects, I built a site for his fans that allows them to find videos much faster than you can directly on YouTube. If you are interested in BMX, might interest you!
