I was looking for a small, portable mini keyboard to use on the road, or just relaxing in my recliner and laying down some tracks on my laptop when I don't feel like going into my home studio and firing up all the equipment I keep there. This board fit perfectly with my needs. With 37 keys, it has a lot more range than the typical 25 key controllers, but it's not much wider than the full-size 25 key models. I was amazed at the feel of the keys. Obviously, they're not like my Axiom keyboard, but they're pretty darned good and nicely responsive, with the included Editor. And most of all, this little keyboard will fit on your lap or right in front of your laptop without taking up much space.
This is a well-built keyboard. Nothing feels cheap about it, and everything worked exactly as it should. I like the fact that is has pitch and mod wheels, unlike some other mini boards which have buttons instead of wheels. The other great thing about this keyboard is that you can get Korg's Legacy Collection for half price as a MicroKey owner. I found this to be a fabulous deal, since it saves you more than you'll pay for the keyboard. With Legacy, you'll get access to a whole batch of Korg's truly classic synths and sounds. I've found literally hundreds of good presets that I can use in my music. It's absolutely the best deal I know of for quality vsti's.
So if you're looking for a compact little keyboard, get this and then buy the Legacy Collection. You'll be glad you did.
