Natural Touch Mini Keyboard:Slim, lightweight, USB-powered, and compatible with all computer-based music software, the microKEY is a great way to create your production setup. The microKEY features the velocity-sensitive Natural Touch mini-keyboard that was acclaimed on instruments such as the microKORG XL and the microARRANGER. The proportions of the black and white keys has been adjusted for optimal playability, easy chording, and rapid phrase work; careful attention has been paid to the touch and playing feel. The "waterfall-type" keyboard makes it easy to play glissandos. This keyboard will accurately convey the dynamics of your performance to your software.
Take Control!:Octave Shift buttons are provided on all models. Using the UP/DOWN buttons allows you to shift the octave the appropriate number of steps for each model so that, when used in conjunction with the Key Transpose function, the full range of notes in the MIDI specification can be covered. The 25-key model features an arpeggiator button, a sustain/tap button, and a joystick to which you can assign pitch bend, modulation, or any other control change, giving you plenty of control and rich expressive potential in spite of its compact size.
No Driver Installation Needed:The standard USB MIDI driver provided by Windows/Mac OS X is supported, so there's no need to install a driver. Simply use a USB cable to connect the microKEY to your computer, and it's ready for use.
iPad Compatible:You can connect the microKEY to your iPad and use it to control apps such as the Korg iMS-20 via MIDI (apps must support Core MIDI). If you're using the 25-key model, Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit and a USB cable is all you need (Korg recommend using a powered hub if you plan to use the microKEY for an extended time).
KORG KONTROL Editor:Using the KORG KONTROL Editor software (provided), you'll be able to customise the microKEY for your setup. You can choose from eight velocity curves plus fixed velocity (a total of nine types), and also specify the control change number of the modulation wheel or joystick, as well as specify their maximum and minimum values.
