While the words portable and affordable describe the K-Series USB-MIDI Studio Controllers, they by no means define them. The K-25 synth features solid, full-size keys, and a selection of four velocity curves (including a fixed level”great for mimicking organs and early mono synths) that tailor the keyboard response to match any performer.
For a controller in this class, the K25 is graced with an unusual variety of sophisticated controls. Performers will be happy to see a set of Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels just like those on Korg's RADIAS, MS2000B and microKORG synths. You'll also find an assignable slider, two assignable switches on the side and a foot switch input on the back panel.
The innovative ClickPoint joystick can perform double duty working as a traditional X/Y joystick or navigate your softsynth or DAW software by acting as a USB mouse.
Additionally, the K-25 comes with a free music software editor that allows you to create and save customized controller assignments and includes a number of pre-programmed templates scenes. This can be a huge time saver and get you up and running with your choice of software synths and music production programs.

The K-25 is a good midi controller. If you're looking for a midi controller and don't know what to get, I will tell you of a truth. It doesn't really matter. They all do the same thing, and that is play OTHER sounds from some other source. The question is what features will you need, some controllers offer extra knobs and sliders, and ect. I use my mouse, keyboard, and groovebox for my mixing applications; the K-25 was just an extra added piece for my studio. It is a very good piece, and I like it; the Legacy collection is hardcore and cool, it has almost all the sounds in my Trinity, ALMOST....The money you spend for a trinity or triton IS for a reason.
I purchased this little "toy" to compose or edit music "on the fly" with a laptop and Finale Hyperscribe. Although the 2 octave keyboard is limiting, it doesn't take long to learn how to use the "octave shift" buttons while playing. But this is only good when I'm playing along with one hand - as the other must be used to press the buttons.I guess everything is a compromise: Now, I'm torn between getting a K49 for the desk - or just using the K25 all the time and getting accustomed to the "octave shift" challenge. I can always write in "the middle" and transpose, I guess.
I have an AMD Athlon XP 2800 on an Asus A7V8X board with the VIA KT400 Chipset and XP SP2. I couldn't get the controller to even show up in the system. Tried a new IOGear USB card without the VIA chipset, and nothing. Korg has never heard of the problems I was having, and my guess is that it is the Athlon. Tried the controller on another computer with an Athlon XP 2100 and a VIA chipset, and same results. Controller does not respond, will not show up in Windows, and the buttons will not even light up.The good news is, I plugged it into two macs, both running OSX, and the controller worked flawlessly. Also plugged it into a Dell laptop with a Pentium 4 and Intel Chipset, and the controller and software worked perfectly. My deduction is that this controller does not like Athlons. But if you're on a mac or an Intel based PC, go for it. Built like a rock and the M1 software synth is very cool.
