At the Summer NAMM show, Korg introduces a compact MIDI controller designed for computer-based and live performance musicians, DJs, and producers alike. The new microKONTROL offers a wide variety of control possibilities, including support for plug-ins, software synths, and sequencing/DAW applications, at an affordable price.
The 37-note mini-key velocity sensitive keyboard has eight rotary encoders and sliders with LCDs to easily display parameter names and values even on a darkened stage or DJ booth. 16 velocity sensitive pads are provided for drum programming, system control, and transport control for sequencing. A 4-way assignable joystick is provided as well.
Additional features include:
The microKONTROL's compact chassis measures 20.63" W x 9.13" D x 2.76" H.
The Korg microKONTROL will be available in October 2003 with a U.S. MSRP of $350.
