Korg MicroKontrol

The microKONTROL is the ultimate portable MIDI keyboard controller, providing every function and type of control you need for computer - based music production or performance.

With a compact and sophisticated-looking design, it includes a 3-octave keyboard (37-note mini keyboard), 8 encoders, 8 sliders, and 16 trigger pads that you can use to control your favorite soft synths, DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), or other musical tools such as external MIDI sound modules. It is the perfect choice for making music on the go thanks to its compact design, and it will fit into the tightest performance space.

With SampleTank 2 Korg Edition and MDE-X running within Live Lite 4 Korg Edition, you can make or perform dance music intuitively and under the complete control of the powerful microKONTROL.

A Compact MIDI Keyboard Controller that Provides 35 Different Controllers
The microKONTROL's velocity-sensitive 37-note mini keyboard provides Octave Shift and Transpose functions that allow it to cover the full range of C-1 through G9. Eight different velocity curves are provided - you can select the response that works best for your playing. Eight encoders and sliders, 16 pads, a joystick with switch, and support for pedals give you a total of 35 different controllers, making this the ultimate controller for direct and intuitive operation.

8 Encoders and Sliders, with Associated LCDs
The 8 encoders and sliders can be assigned to transmit any MIDI control change (including NRPN and RPN messages) to control volume, panning, or anything else. Operating a controller will transmit the MIDI message assigned to it. Each encoder and slider also has an LCD (sub display) that indicates the parameter and the transmitted value, with the backlight color changing between orange and green to distinguish between the encoder and slider. Since you won't have to watch your computer screen while you operate the controllers, your fingers will be linked to your music in a more physical way. The LCD can display either decimal or hexadecimal values.

16 Trigger Pads that Also Function as Control Switches
The microKONTROL provides 16 trigger pads that can be assigned with an unprecedented degree of freedom. The pads can be used to trigger notes with full velocity transmission, or assigned to transmit MIDI control changes to operate the transport of your recording software or act as any type of switch.

Assignable Joystick with Switch
In addition to assigning pitch bend to the X-axis and modulation to the Y-axis of the joystick, you can freely assign different MIDI messages to all four directions (up/down/left/right) and the switch in order to control your connected device or computer application.

Easily Make Control Assignments from the Front Panel
Making control assignments is extremely easy - just hold down a mode key. Press the 'SETTING' mode key, press a pad to select the desired type of controller, and use the controller and the 'CURSOR' buttons to specify the parameters.

12 Preset Scenes Support Popular Sequencer Software
Settings that assign the controllers to various control functions for computer-based software synthesizers or DAW programs can be saved as one of twelve scenes in internal user memory. You can use the trigger pads to switch scenes instantly. Internal memory also contains twelve preset scenes that support popular DAW and sequencer software.

MIDI IN/OUT Ports, and Support for Bus Power
The microKONTROL provides MIDI IN/OUT ports, and can also be used as a USB-MIDI interface. You can use MIDI clock data to control the tempo, or transmit MIDI messages directly. The microKONTROL can also be powered via its USB connection, making the AC power supply adaptor or even batteries unnecessary when connected to a computer via USB.

Driver/Librarian Software and Templates for Popular Software are Included
The included CD-ROM contains dedicated drivers, librarian software that lets you manage your original scenes on a computer, and numerous templates (scene programs) for use with popular DAW and sequencer software. More templates will be released ensuring that the most popular applications will be supported by the microKONTROL.

The librarian software makes it easy to transfer the twelve scene memories between internal memory and your computer. You can store and manage scenes you create to precisely suit your own setup.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
