Control that’s conveniently simplified
With all of the endless options, configurations, and choices that modern technology offers musicians today, in the end, the simplest solution is often the best solution.
An uncomplicated, straightforward design, compact size, and easy connectivity made the first-generation microKEY series a bestseller.
Our second-generation microKEY lineup retains those attributes and adds iPad and iPhone support*, plus a damper pedal jack for improved playability. We’ve also added a 49-key model, for the player who needs a few more keys in a still-compact format.
In all, the microKEY series has evolved to become even more convenient and versatile, making it an ideal choice for first-time and more established players alike. Whether you’re producing in the studio, or creating on the go, the microKEY will give you exactly what you need – and nothing you don’t.
* Via the Apple Lightning - USB camera adaptor – sold separately.
Compact and playable Natural Touch Mini Keyboard
KORG’s Natural Touch mini keyboard has been carefully designed to assure playability while staying compact, and makes it easy to play chords or rapid phrases. Choose between a 25, 37, 49 or 61-key configuration to suit your specific playing style and space/travel requirements.
Connect with a single USB cable*; supports Mac, Win, iPad, and iPhone
Since the microKEY is USB bus-powered, you only need a single USB cable to connect it to Mac or Windows. There's no need to install a driver; just use your preferred music software (or install any of the applications provided with microKEY), connect it to your computer and start playing right away! The second generation of microKEY now supports easy connection to iPad and iPhone. Add an Apple Lightning - USB camera adaptor and one USB cable and your setup is complete, allowing you to access apps such as KORG Gadget, KORG Module, and GarageBand.
* For connection to the iPad/iPhone, use the Apple Lightning - USB camera adaptor.
Connect a pedal, and enjoy full control functionality
The 37, 49, and 61-key models provide an assignable switch jack for connecting a damper pedal. The 25-key model provides a sustain button that implements the damper function.
On all models, you can use the octave buttons in conjunction with the key transpose function to play MIDI's entire range of notes. The 37, 49, and 61-key models provide pitch bend and modulation wheels.
The 25-key model provides a joystick that can also control pitch bend and modulation, as well as an arpeggiator function, giving you full control in spite of this model's space-saving dimensions, and providing a wealth of performance expression.
