MICROKEY2-25AIR

Korg brings you even more compact controller options with the new microKEY and microKEY AIR Series.

microKEY can be completely powered by an iPad or iPhone and now offers a pedal input for sustain. There's also a new 49-key version for the two-handed player that still wants compact. To accommodate simpler and quicker setups, or to simply unwire and unclutter your rig, the microKEY Air series features Apples Wireless Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) standard, which provides long battery life and extremely low latency!
They also have standard USB connections.

Both come with a comprehensive software bundle to advance your plug in library, or serve as your starting point to making music using your computer or iOS device!

Key Features:

Connect wirelessly to iPad, iPhone, Mac, or Windows

The microKEY Air supports Bluetooth Smart Apple Bluetooth Low Energy MIDI. You can easily connect wirelessly to iPad/iPhone music apps such as KORG Gadget, KORG Module, and GarageBand, as well as any MIDI-capable music production software on your Mac or Windows. Painstaking tuning of the Bluetooth capabilities means high stability and low latency, no strings or wires attached.

Lasts a month between battery changes

With an average of one hour of use per day, the batteries allow approximately one month of operation. And best of all, the microKEY Air runs on just two AA batteries.

To USB or not to USB?

microKEY Air can also be connected via a traditional USB cable. Since the microKEY is USB bus-powered, you only need a single USB cable to connect it to Mac or Windows. There's no need to install a driver; just connect it to your computer and start playing. The second generation newly supports connection to iPad and iPhone. Add an Apple Lightning - USB camera adaptor and one USB cable and your setup is complete, allowing you to access apps such as KORG Gadget, KORG Module, and GarageBand.
