A Full 5 Octaves of MIDI Control in Mini Keys

Musical inspiration has struck - and you can't wait to bust out your keyboard chops on the soft synths and pianos that were bundled with your DAW. But you don't have time or space to set up a full-size keyboard, run power, or deal with MIDI cables. Fear not: the Korg microKEY is here! Korg's series of "Micro" keyboards has proved popular with musicians who find Korg's mini-keys surprisingly playable. With the release of the microKEY, Korg puts five octaves of velocity-sensitive mini-keys right where they're most useful: as a budget-friendly USB MIDI controller for software instruments. Just over 15 inches wide, this controller fits neatly in front of your computer keyboard or laptop (not to mention in your backpack or messenger bag). The microKEY even has a built-in USB hub with two extra ports, so there's plenty of places to plug your external USB drive, iLok or mouse. It's a simple and easy way to put a keyboard on your desk - or just about anywhere.

Portability Plus Playability

There's a reason that Korg's "Micro" series boards seem to be showing up on so many pro artists' stages: serious build quality, and playability that defies their small size. Just because it weighs 1.4 pounds doesn't mean the microKEY is a toy. Rather, the microKEY has a reassuringly solid, velocity-sensitive synth-action keyboard, the same as those found on the MicroKORG XL and MicroSTATION - designed for keyboardists to comfortably play chords and glissandi despite the ultra-compact size. After all, Korg is first and foremost a keyboard manufacturer, so it stands to reason that the Korg microKEY is no glorified drum machine - it's made to be played by real keyboardists.

Easy Octave Shifting

You can't miss the Octave Up and Down buttons that light up and change color with each press, cycling through green, orange, red, and blinking red to show you what range you're playing in. You can shift the microKEY's keyboard 4 octaves up or down, to access the entire MIDI range. Right above these buttons, you'll find full-size pitch and modulation wheels with a reassuringly firm feel. Korg's free Kontrol Editor software lets you customize the range of the wheels and set the keyboard to respond to one of eight velocity curves to match your playing style.

Soft Synths Bundled In the Box

A MIDI controller is only as good as the sounds you can play through it. Luckily, the microKEY comes with licenses for several software instruments ready to plug in to your DAW, so you can start making music right away. There's M1 Le, a software limited edition of Korg's M1 workstation synth. You'll also find EzDrummer Lite, Toontrack's software drum module packed with quality drum sounds, and Lounge Lizard Session, known for expressive electric piano sounds. There's even a discount coupon for the ubiquitous Ableton Live loop-based performance software, that more and more musicians are using as a DAW.

Product Description

The KORG microKEY25 is very portable, allowing you to enjoy playing and producing with a great feeling keyboard even when you're away from home.

That's not all; the microKEY25 can be powered directly from your iPad via the Camera Connection Kit, and it can be immediately used to control MIDI-capable apps such as Korg's iMS-20. The microKEY25 also includes a download code for FREE Korg M1Le software, giving you all of the preset sounds and all of the PCM waveforms of the original M1, and a browser/search function that makes it easy to find that "perfect sound."
