Compact Controller and 2-Port USB Hub in One!Whether you're looking for a compact keyboard that won't clutter up your desk, or a great controller you can pack with your laptop, we're sure you're going to absolutely love the Korg microKEY. The most important thing about any keyboard is the feel of its keys, and the responsive, velocity-sensitive mini keybed of the microKEY feels great. A set of 37 keys give you enough range to really play, without making the microKEY bulky. What's really cool about the microKEY is that it has a pair of USB type A ports, effective turning it into a 2-port USB hub, allowing you to daisy chain additional USB devices. Plus, the microKEY comes complete with Korg's M1 Le software synthesizer, so you're ready to make music, right out of the box!

best mini-controller out there.
by josev f from boulder, coI've used all of the ultra-portable midi controllers out there and this one is definitely the cream of the crop. Including the mod wheel and pitchbend wheel is incredibly valuable to me, and having 37... read more [+] keys in this size is perfect. Love this thing and use it everywhere. My only wish is that they they added a MIDI OUT on it so I could use it as a dedicated controller w/o the use of a computer. Oh well, still awesome! :) close [-]

Great portability but it has its limitations.
by Leon Alvarado from USAI bought the gear so that I would have something small and on the go. The size is great and the overall feel and finish is light years from the nanoKey line (which is way too flimsy and will break at ... read more [+]the drop of a hat). The keys feel good and I love the two wheel controllers and the transpose buttons. What are the limitations then? For starters the level of velocity feels like is definitely limited and sometimes can transmit the wrong level. I have also experienced short notes feedback when playing several keys at once. To be fair, I don't know if it is a communication issue between the gear and my software (Logic Pro). All I know is that I don't experience the same with my bigger controllers. Having said that, I found it handy enough to use it for some of the synth leads in one of my albums. Nothing like having the ability to use it almost anywhere you can bring your laptop to. close [-]
