On my little laptop, trying to use that MPK261 isn't going to work. Meanwhile, the 25-key two-octave controller don't get me enough space to play the full chords or drum sets I want. It seems like a 37-key mini controller would be just right for noodling with the laptop on the kitchen table. I looked around for various options, and this one seemed to be the best fit for my needs -- I just need piano key input to a DAW. And this certainly delivers! It's lightweight, but not flimsy. It plugs in and configure with no fuss. It has no fancy bells or whistles that need special configuration, which is great, because I seldom have the patience for those kinds of things.
I play this with Native Instruments Komplete. However, as the laptop doesn't have disk space for the large symphonic instruments, I use it mostly for the Reaktor-based soft synths and various drum kits and effects, and the 37 keys are enough for this. I've used it for a couple of weeks, and I love it.
There are two things that I would improve if I were a Korg hardware engineer:
1) I don't use most controllers on keyboards, but a "program select up/down" button would be nice, and DAW play/stop/rewind buttons would be nice, too.
2) The old-school large square USB-B connector is robust, but it sticks out to the side in a way that is likely to break off if some force comes at it from the side or from above. A recess in the plastic that protects the actual connector would probably be a good design improvement.
These things aren't enough to drop the fifth star, though, because this little keyboard is just perfect to let me noodle around at times and in places where I couldn't otherwise do it. Thank you, Korg!
Also, the keys are not too noisy which is good.
