Show full description »

With a compact and sophisticated-looking design, it includes a three-octave keyboard (37 note mini keyboard), eight encoders, eight sliders, and sixteen trigger pads that you can use to control your favorite soft synths, DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), or other musical tools such as external MIDI sound modules. It is the perfect choice for making music on the go thanks to its compact design, and it will fit into the tightest performance space.

A compact MIDI keyboard controller that provides 35 different controllers The microKONTROL’s velocity-sensitive 37-note mini keyboard provides Octave Shift and Transpose functions that allow it to cover the full range of C-1 through G9. Eight different velocity curves are provided – you can select the response that works best for your playing. Eight encoders and sliders, sixteen pads, a joystick with switch, and support for pedals give you a total of 35 different controllers, making this the ultimate controller for direct and intuitive operation.

Eight encoders and sliders, with associated LCDs The eight encoders and sliders can be assigned to transmit any MIDI control change (including NRPN and RPN messages) to control volume, panning, or anything else. Operating a controller will transmit the MIDI message assigned to it. Each encoder and slider also has an LCD (sub display) that indicates the parameter and the transmitted value, with the backlight color changing between orange and green to distinguish between the encoder and slider. Since you won't have to watch your computer screen while you operate the controllers, your fingers will be linked to your music in a more physical way. The LCD can display either decimal or hexadecimal values.

Sixteen trigger pads that also function as control switches

The microKONTROL provides sixteen trigger pads that can be assigned with an unprecedented degree of freedom. The pads can be used to trigger notes with full velocity transmission, or assigned to transmit MIDI control changes to operate the transport of your recording software or act as any type of switch

Korg microKONTROL MC1 Reviews


Don't buy this product

I recommend anyone who is considering in buying this product, please don't buy it because I noticed that after having it for a while the keys don't work on touch. Also another reason to not buy it is KORG don't support the software anymore or the updates are useless because they are in a different format now, which means your screen on the keyboard is stuck on the DAW and there is no way to reset it back to change it.



Just purchased this controller to work with the Reason 3.0 Demo.

And even though I am new to music production I really think that this controller is making it a lot simpler for me.

Its totally plug and play on Mac OSX 10.4.8 and works with Reason like a dream as there is already a built in scene.

But the best part is the 9 part LCD display that feeds back exactly what rack unit you are using, the parameter settings, its just so nice to have this feedback that you don't really get on controllers of this price.

Its early days yet and I've barely scratched the surface of its abilities, even now I know I made an excellent choice and is so well built I will be with me for a long time yet.

Korg Microkontrol

After buying the Korg Microkontrol from Dolphin Music, receiving it and getting it out of the box, I was very impressed by the appearance of the keyboard. Brushed alluminium and a very rugged feel make this keyboard seem a winner. However, the keys take a little getting used to as they are rather small. Not a problem any more for me. I use this with Reason 3.0 and in "Native Mode" the Mircokontrol comes into its own, with track names automatically being sent to the beautiful LCD displays. I found this particulalry useful as it meant I knew what each encoder or slider was going to affect before moving it. The 16 trigger pads work well but need some breaking in. They are more suited to triggering samples in programs such as Live as opposed to playing drum patterns on, as they are only velocity sensitive and not pressure sensitive. However, for the price of the keyboard what would you expect. You get much more than you pay for with the Microkontrol. More assignable controllers than you would ever really need for small time music production, and a rugged portable keyboard.

The only reason I gave this an 8 instead of a 9 or 10, would have to be the feel of the encoders and sliders. They feel cheap and sometimes wobble, however, if you treat them with respect and use them gently, they should last long enough.
