MusikMESSE, Frankfurt, Germany (March 27, 2012) - Korg is proud to announce the expansion of its microKEY USB Powered Keyboard and MIDI Controller family. The microKEY-37 is now joined by the highly portable microKEY-25 and the microKEY-61 for the studio musician. As an added bonus, the microKEY-61 comes with the exclusive Legacy Collection Suite - the acclaimed collection of software versions of some of Korg's most coveted synthesizers.
For budget-minded computer musicians seeking portability and power without sacrificing keyboard feel and function, the microKEY is an ideal way to create a compact and customized MIDI command center. Free editing software and a selection of included software bundle licenses and discount coupons make the microKEY even more cost effective.
For added flexibility and control, the microKEY 37- and 61-key models both serve double-duty as a USB hub. The Mac and PC-compatible microKEYs also run on USB power, making them well-suited for on-the-go laptop musicians. For iPad musicians, the microKEY-25 can be used to control apps such as the Korg iMS-20 via MIDI.
All microKEY models feature velocity-sensing mini keys, using the Natural Touch keybed. 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, with a key touch that makes it easy to play chords. The microKEY also accurately conveys the dynamics of the user's performance to any software package. Free "Korg KONTROL Editor" software also enables users to customize microKEY for their production or performance system.
In addition to the Korg Legacy Collection software included with the microKEY-61, all microKEY models ship with the software licenses and discount coupons so users can start making music right away:
Korg microKEY25, 37, and 61 keyboards will be available at a variety of international retailers for $69.99, $79.99 and $179.99 respectively.
