Korg has expanded its microKEY USB Powered Keyboard and MIDI Controller family. Aside from the original microKEY-37, the highly portable microKEY series is now available in 25- and 61-key versions for the computer-based studio musician. Plus, as an added bonus, the microKEY-61 comes with the exclusive Legacy Collection Suite – the acclaimed collection of software versions of some of Korg’s most coveted synthesizers.
For budget-minded computer musicians seeking portability and power without sacrificing keyboard feel and function, the microKEY is an ideal way to create a compact and customized MIDI command center. And to make the microKEY even more cost effective, every version comes with a a free editing software and a selection of included software bundle licenses.
For added flexibility and control, the microKEY 37- and 61-key models both serve double-duty as a USB hub. The Mac and PC-compatible microKEYs also run on USB power, making them well-suited for on-the-go laptop musicians. For iPad musicians, the microKEY-25 can be used to control apps such as the Korg iMS-20 via MIDI.
All microKEY models feature velocity-sensing mini keys, using the Natural Touch keybed. This keybed has been designed with careful attention to the touch and feel: the proportions of the black keys and white “waterfall” keys have been adjusted for optimal playability, with a key touch that makes it easy to play chords. The microKEY also accurately conveys the dynamics of the user’s performance to any software package. Free “Korg KONTROL Editor” software also enables users to customize microKEY for their production or performance system.
Korg microKEY25, 37, and 61 keyboards are available online at korg.com.
