You Pay: $179.99
Product Highlights
  • 61 Velocity-Sensitive Mini-Keys
  • Modulation Wheel
  • Pitch Bend Wheel
  • Octave Shift Buttons
  • Includes 5 Virtual Instruments

  • Dual USB Ports
  • Mac OS X, Windows XP/Vista/7 Compatible

The microKEY61 from Korg is a slim, lightweight, 61-Key USB powered controller with velocity-sensitive "Natural Touch" mini-keys. It has been designed to maximize playability while still integrating into a compact production setup.

The microKEY is equipped with Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels to add expression to your MIDI performances. The Key Transpose feature allows you to transpose the pitch of the keyboard up or down in semitone steps. Octave Shift buttons let you extend the note range of the keyboard by 3 octaves in either direction. Edits to advanced MIDI parameters, such as the Modulation Wheel's control change number and the keyboard's velocity curve can be made using the included KORG KONTROL Editor software. This can be useful in customizing the microKEY to give you greater control over a virtual instrument, or to accommodate harder or softer keyboard playing styles.

Two USB ports (Type A) allow the keyboard to act as a USB hub, making it easy to connect additional equipment such as drum pad controllers or external hard drives. The controller also includes 5 virtual instruments and a discount coupon for purchasing software from Ableton's "Live" series.

KORG KONTROL Editor

Included MIDI mapping software allows you to set the keyboard to respond to one of 8 distinct velocity curves, or set a fixed velocity value. This is useful in customizing the microKEY to your personal playing style. In addition, the modulation wheel's control change number assignment can be edited and its range can be customized by setting minimum and maximum values. This can be used to control specific parameters of a virtual instrument, or to increase or decrease the sensitivity of the Modulation Wheel

    Comments about Korg microKEY61 USB Keyboard Controller:

    This keyboard is the perfect size for me. I had a M-Audio Axiom 61 which was a great piece of equipment but it was just to big. With the Korg Microkey 61 I'm able to set it up next to my computer keyboard. The small footprint fits easily in an unused portion of my desktop. The 61 keys give me a large enough range for most projects. The keys have a good feel and touch. One huge bonus is the software included. The Korg Legacy Collection is amazing!!! It's not a limited addition or trial version; it's the real deal!! Add in the virtual instruments included and just the software justifies the cost!! The only complaint I have is registering and installing the software. The process is clumsy to say the least and it took several attempts before I was able to load all of the programs. Highly recommended..
