Whether you're looking for a compact keyboard that won't clutter up your desk, or a great controller you can pack with your laptop, we're sure you're going to absolutely love the Korg microKEY. The most important thing about any keyboard is the feel of its keys, and the responsive, velocity-sensitive mini keybed of the microKEY feels great. A set of 37 keys give you enough range to really play, without making the microKEY bulky. What's really cool about the microKEY is that it has a pair of USB type A ports, effective turning it into a 2-port USB hub, allowing you to daisy chain additional USB devices. Plus, the microKEY comes complete with Korg's M1 Le software synthesizer, so you're ready to make music, right out of the box!
The microKEY features 37 velocity-sensing mini keys, using the same Natural Touch keybed found on the Korg microKORG XL and microSTATION. 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, and the key touch makes it easy to play chords, glissandos, and rapid-fire phrases. The microKEY accurately conveys the dynamics of your performance to any software plug in.
The Octave Shift buttons extend the range of the microKEY by four octaves in either direction – up or down. The Key Transpose allows you to play in any key instantly. Used together, these two features provide access to the entire MIDI note range. For adding tasty expression to your performance, the microKEY is also equipped with both a Pitch Bend wheel and a Modulation wheel.
Your new microKEY serves double-duty as a USB hub. The two USB ports (Type A) allow you to expand your custom control center by adding on a Korg nanoPAD or nanoKONTROL – or any other USB device!
Download the free "KORG KONTROL Editor" and customize the microKEY for your production or performance system. Using the editor software, you can set the keyboard to respond to one of eight distinct velocity curves, or set a fixed velocity value. In addition, the range of the modulation wheel can be customized by setting minimum and maximum control change values. *KORG KONTROL Editor can be downloaded from the Support section of the Korg website.
