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.

-Applied Acoustics Systems' "Strum Acoustic Session," the physical modeling software synthesizer that lets you "play" acoustic guitar parts with the expressiveness of an acoustic instrument
-"Ultra Analog Session", also by Applied Acoustics Systems, the analog modeling synthesizer acclaimed for its analog-style synth sounds

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
