Korg MicroKey Keyboard Controller Features

  • USB MIDI keyboard – thin, lightweight, and USB-powered
  • 37 velocity-sensitive mini keys
  • Comfortable and easy-to-play Natural Touch keyboard
  • Octave Shift and Key Transpose features access the full MIDI note range
  • Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels add expression to your performance
  • Dual USB connections are ideal for daisy chaining a nanoPAD or nanoKONTROL
Natural Touch mini keyboard
The microKEY features 37 velocity-sensing mini keys, using the same Natural Touch keybed found on the Korg microKORG XL and microSTATION. This keybed has been designed with careful attention to the touch and feel. The proportions of the black keys and white "waterfall" keys have been adjusted for optimal playability, and the key touch makes it easy to play chords, glissandos, and rapid-fire phrases. The microKEY accurately conveys the dynamics of your performance to any software plug in.

Extended Range and Expression
The Octave Shift buttons extend the range of the microKEY by four octaves in either direction – up or down. The Key Transpose allows you to play in any key instantly. Used together, these two features provide access to the entire MIDI note range. For adding tasty expression to your performance, the microKEY is also equipped with both a Pitch Bend wheel and a Modulation wheel.

USB versatility
Your new microKEY serves double-duty as a USB hub. The two USB ports (Type A) allow you to expand your custom control center by adding on a Korg nanoPAD or nanoKONTROL – or any other USB device!

Free Editing Software
Download the free KORG KONTROL Editor (available at Korg's website) and customize the microKEY for your production or performance system. Using the editor software, you can set the keyboard to respond to one of eight distinct velocity curves, or set a fixed velocity value. In addition, the range of the modulation wheel can be customized by setting minimum and maximum control change values.
