KORG KR-11 Compact Rhythm Box

The new KR-11 is a compact yet feature-packed rhythm machine. It offers a portable solution to bring variety and fun to your music practice. The KR-11 compact rhythm box brings the rhythm machine legacy into the modern era. It was pioneered by the legendary Korg Doncamatic in 1963.

With its pop flair and portability, the KR-11 introduces 126 distinct rhythm patterns as well as 14 dedicated user programs. This adds a new dimension to your instrumental practice and performance. All it takes is a simple knob turn to access unbound practice possibilities.
The KR-11 comes equipped with a handy tap tempo function and swing feature.

You can effortlessly edit and save or create from scratch your favourite rhythm patterns using the 16 velocity-sensitive pads. Additionally, the KR-11 boasts impressive performance capabilities. This includes seamless pattern changes via the pedal switch. This grants you all the flexibility you need for your practice and live performances.

Easy-To-Use Rhythm Playback And Customization Anytime, Anywhere

Simply choose your favourite genre to get started! Each genre includes 14 variations for a total of 126 distinct patterns. Also included are 14 dedicated slots where users can easily save their own unique patterns, taking your practice sessions to new levels of enjoyment.

KR-11 is battery-powered, lightweight, and compact. The built-in speaker allows for easy on-the-spot playing of a wide variety of rhythmic phrases. In addition to fundamental patterns like 8-beat and 16-beat, the KR-11 features specific styles like ‘’’Blues/R&B,’ and ‘’Country’ tailored for guitarists and ‘Island’ for ukulele.. Beside three-beat patterns the KR-11 also features more intricate five- and seven-beat patterns.

The swing function adds versatility to each pattern, expanding the range of variations.

The KR-11 also includes a metronome function for fundamental practice. This makes it an essential tool for a broad spectrum of musicians, including guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, and orchestral players.

Expand Your Practice And Performance Options

An optional pedal switch facilitates start/stop, pattern change, and fill-in operations in pattern play mode, allowing you to effortlessly control the KR-11 without using your hands. In Pad Play mode, the pedal switch allows you to play any drum tone for a more authentic drum-like performance.

The KR-11 also includes a headphone/line-out jack, providing the option to connect it to a PA, mixer, amp or other devices, allowing you to play drum phrases through monitor speakers. It is so easy to do small guitar performances when running your KR-11 with a guitar amplifier.

Finger Drumming With Pad Play Mode

The 16 pads on the unit have drum sounds such as bass drum, snare, hi-hat, and cymbals. Use these pads for a great finger drumming experience! The built-in velocity function responds to the strength of pad strikes, enabling the creation of more realistic drum patterns.
You can also save your pad performances to the user bank, enabling you to play back your favourite patterns at any time.

Compact, battery-powered, and equipped with built-in speakers, the KR-11 makes it effortless to enjoy performances on the street, outdoors, or anywhere else.
