New Korg Products Announced
USB POWERED KEYBOARD - The perfect choice for controlling your computer music software
The microKEY is slim, lightweight, USB powered and compatible with all of your computer music software.
Use the microKEY to create your own compact and customized command centre.
EXTENDED RANGE and EXPRESSION
With a natural touch mini keyboard which you will also find on the microKORG and microSTATION, this keybed has been designed with careful atention to touch and feel. The proportions of the black keys and white "waterfall" keys have been adjusted for optimal playability, and the key touch makes it easy to play chords, glissandos, and rapid-fire phrases. The microKEY accurately conveys the dynamics of your performance to any software package.
The new microKEY serves double-duty as a USB hub. The two USB ports (Type A) allow you to expand your custom control center by adding on a Korg nanoPAD or nanoKONTROL - or any other USB device!
FREE EDITING SOFTWARE
Download the free "Korg KONTROL Editor" and customize the microKEY for your production or performance system. Using the editor software, you can set the keyboard to respond to one of eight distinct velocity curves, or set a fixed velocity value. In addition, the range of the modulation wheel can be customized by setting a minimum and maximum control change values.
TM40 - Pearl White
TUNER - Practice pitch and rhythm at the same time!
Korg tuners and metronomes are acclaimed around the world for their extremely high accuracy and superb features. The new TM-40 combines these two functions into a single compact easy-to-use unit.
A great lesson and practice tool, the TM-40 offers both tuner and metronome functions simultaneously or independently. Its large LCD-type needle delivers both the accuracy of an LCD and the excellent visibility of a needle indicator. It also has LED indicators that show pitch deviation or blink to indicate the tempo, making the TM-40 a highly visual tool.
EXCELLENT FUNCTIONALITY and a WIDE DETECTION RANGE
With a detection range of C1 (32.70 Hz) - C8 (4186.01 Hz), the TM-40 provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard and most other instruments. Even low-pitched instruments with complex overtone structures are detected with the precision you expect from Korg. It has a built-in high-sensitivity mic which allows acoustic instruments such as guitar and ukulele to be tuned easily and accurately.
In addition to the visual tuning guide provided by the meter, you can use the TM-40's built-in speaker to produce a tuning reference pitch (sound out). This is convenient for tuning by ear and also useful for ear training.
The TM-40's Calibration setting is adjustable in a range of 410-480 Hz to accommodate a variety of tuning standards. Memory back up is also provided so that the Calibration and Sound Out settings are remembered even when the power is turned off.
PURE MAJOR THIRD and MINOR THIRD INTERVAL MARKINGS
When intervals of a third are played out of tune in the contect of a brass band, orchestra, or other ensemble, it is particularly noticeable. hose intervals can be made to blend more pleasantly by slightly adjusting them to a pure major or minor third.
PERCUSSION SYNTH (BLACK LTD EDITION) - Unprecedented sound and performance
Korg's dynamic percussion synthesizer provides new and unparalleled expressiveness through innovative synthesis technology. The Korg Wavedrum allows you to give a versatile and flexible performance from a hybrid sound generation system combining DSP based synthesis algorithms and PCM playback engine.
The Wavedrum is now available in a limited edition black colour. Featuring an unmistakably premium look, the Wavedrum Black is finished with a solid black metallic rim and an exclusive Black Suede Remo drum head - projecting a totally different vibe than the cool aura of the original silver scheme. With the limited edition Wavedrum Black, you'll find yourself inspired to perform more powerfully than ever before.
The original Wavedrum percussion synthesizer was released in 1993 and has become one of Korg's legendary musical instruments, famous for its innovative design, performance possibilites and unique sounds. The affordable next generation Wavedrum is here - sonically richer, more sensitive, more powerful and expressive enough to create its own musical legend.
With its wide dynamic range equivalent to that of an acoustic instrument, the Wavedrum responds perfectly to the performer's action, from subtly nuanced touching and stroking to aggressive hitting. It has a wide variety of instruments ranging from standard acoustic percussion instruments to brand new, unique percussion sounds.
Those instruments that usually require special techniques to play - think tabla and the conga - can now be played easily! In addition, the Wavedrum establishes its own way of playing, giving you unparalleled expression full of originality and depth. And with its compact a
