There are 24 built-in drum/percussion styles that were recorded live using Korg’s proprietary “Real Groove Technology.” Each rhythm style provides two variations, each with a a basic pattern and two fill-ins. By chaining patterns together, a rhythm structure for an entire song can be achieved and played back automatically or manually.

The mixer section includes one XLR mic input, two guitar/bass inputs, and a stereo auxiliary input, allowing for multi-channel mixing with an on-board, high-quality reverb. The onboard SD recorder allows you to play along with a rhythm style and record the combined results. What's more, multi-track recording capabilities allow for the production of more sophisticated tracks.

The KR-55 Pro also features a variety of utility features including a built-in tuner with a large display for good visibility in low-light conditions. You can also tune while listening to a guitar, bass, or piano guide tone, and the convenient onboard metronome assists in practicing. The unit features "Acoustage" proprietary virtual surround technology that generates a wide stereo effect that appears to originate from locations that are broadly separated between left and right.
