Korg controller

The keyboard is great for entering music into Finale. The smaller size allows it to fit nicely on my desk.

Nice Small/Portable Keyboard

I got this keyboard for it's size mostly. I was weary of the keys, but the playability is actually really nice. It has very good dynamic response which can be lacking in these keyboards, but you can still be pretty expressive with it.

Well fit for purpose...

The great thing about the New Microkey2 range is that they all can be run from an iPad, iPod or iPhone without a USB hub and that makes them really portable and convenient. Also the keys are smaller than standard but still playable by anyone with slim to normal fingers. I recently played for several three-hour choral rehearsals using this keyboard without noticeable fatigue. The inclusion of an assignable pedal socket (default is auto-detecting damper control) is an improvement on earlier models and makes the keyboard much more useful. I own the 61 key model as well as the 49 key, but I love the smaller keyboard for its amazingly compact size, and four octaves is still a useful size for baroque ensembles, pop music and choir practice. I sometimes wish I could alter internal keyboard parameters with an iPad app instead of the Windows/Mac software, but it's a small gripe. The thing is just so useful straight out of the box!
