Fabulous desktop input,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Korg microKEY-25 USB MIDI Controller (Electronics)
I've a digital piano for proper playing, but when it comes to entering simple tracks into sequencer or scoring software, nothing's better or more immediate than a little keyboard on your desktop. Whether using Sonar, Sibelius, or something else, multi-part orchestrations and synth tracks and vocal notes that don't need the full span of an 88 note piano are quickly and accurately executed on the microKEY. The keys are small but not painfully so (though I have small fingers!). The velocity sensitivity is good on the default and adjustable to 10 settings in software. The stick provides a valuable XY interface for many synths and instruments to get the most from them. Build quality is pretty robust. There's nothing I can fault it on. This little device is perfect for the job and at a very reasonable price, especially when you factor in the few quality audio packages it comes bundled with, including the Kork M1 virtual instrument, AAS Lounge Lizard Session Rhodes electric piano instrument, and AAS Strum Accoustic Session instrument that authentically recreates strummed and fingered guitar tracks on a keyboard.
I read around a good few reviews of microkeyboards before I settled on this, and I continue the recommendations. If you're after a desktop keyboard, you'll not be at all sorry with this choice.
