It has its uses and great at them

This Midi Controller would fit 2 places, the road and the beat maker.... and be GREAT at them! This would not be a good fit if you primarily use a controller for piano or electric keys or any other rigorous musical playing that involves needing full size keys for space to play them, and room for speed as well. The keys themselves are very real, and make pushing out drums, bass lines, layering pads, and even pumping a lead part out a breeze! The keys push down easily which may pose an issue again for musicians who play more rigorous parts but i'd say if you just lay some stuff down you don't need to worry about hitting other keys. If you are a pianist who just needs to demo parts on the road this could be a good fit, but i wouldn't make it a primary controller for a studio unless you want something taking up minimal space and mainly pump out beats for hip hop or electronic music of any sort. Set up was painless, plugged it into my mac, into logic, and i was playing away in 5 seconds. 3 octaves offer substantial room to play, and the pitch and modulation wheels feel nice. The octave buttons are, well buttons, and it just feel like a solid compact board! I'd 110% recommend this for anyone who wants a plug and play, good key feeling beat pumping artist who wants a minimal set up that can do the job and do it amazingly well at an amazing price, or as a road controller that is so small to pack away. Definitely get a sustain pedal if you're wondering if you should, cuts work in half and saves headaches. I'd hesitate to recommend it to pianist's or artists who play rigorous parts that involve speed and space of regular keys but if they just need something to lay ideas down this would be a good minimal set up.

DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS OS

I've had a Microkey 37 since it was first released. It worked under Windows XP BARELY. Had to constantly update or wait for new drivers. Always had to click through messages on install of the Korg USB/MIDI driver that said it was not Windows compliant. Same issues with Windows 7. Now with Windows 10, it literally wont work at all. I installed the latest Korg driver that they claim is made for Windows 10. Does not work. Red power light between the octave transposer buttons wont even light. The Korg driver doesn't recognize when the microkey is plugged in or removed. It looks like the ESHelper app that is supposed to scan for this wont run consistently in Windows 10. KORG HAS NEVER PROVIDED GOOD SUPPORT FOR WINDOWS. IF YOU ARE RUNNING A WINDOWS SYSTEM AND WISH TO CONNECT A KORG PRODUCT, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY NOT CONSIDER BUYING A KORG PRODUCT. They should be brought up on charges for advertising that their products are Windows compatible. THEY ARE NOT FULLY COMPATIBLE NOR HAVE THEY EVER BEEN.
