The microKEY is slim, lightweight, USB powered and compatible with all of your computer music software; use it to create your own compact and customized command center.

Natural Touch mini keyboard
The microKEY features 37 velocity-sensing mini keys, using the same Natural Touch keybed found on the Korg microKORG XL and microSTATION.
