Excerpt: Over the past year I've ended up with three of these. The first one died, but given that I was taking it out and about it wasn't unexpected. Korg sent me a replacement (never asked for the broken one back) and were pleasant, though a bit slow to respond. The replacement had a couple of bad keys that only registered if slammed on.
Excerpt: Nice feel/velocity to the "micro" keys. The 3 octaves are plenty for songwriting. Fits in a suitcase when I'm on the lam. Gets along famously with Logic X and the Macbook pro. Great bargain to boot. Highly recommended as a controller/trigger and basic riffer.
Pros: Easy to Use, Portable, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
Excerpt: Use this for my compositions. The keys are smaller than a real piano, so if you're an actual piano player expecting to be able to play on this I wouldn't recommend it. But if you're just looking to compose and want an affordable, quality, compact product, this is definitely for you.
Excerpt: Portability!!!! On that note, this keyboard is pretty good for basic MIDI control on the go, but I really miss using the sustain pedal (no input) but If your into sampling and triggering drums this keyboard will work great.
Pros: Easy to Use, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
Excerpt: I bought this for its' portability. I also have an Impulse 61 that is too big for travel. The keys are better than all other midi keyboards in this price range. It is powered by USB from a computer or notebook but you will need a powered USB hub to use it with an iPad 4 (or any iPad).
Summary: The item itself is great. The drivers are wonky, though. It worked out of the box with my PC, but quickly stopped being recognized by various programs including the bundled software and Korg's own Kontrol Editor. The system recognizes it, though (Win 7).It works fine on my Mac, even in the same programs. As there is no help center on Korg's website that I can find, other than product documentation and downloads, I'm docking a star.
Excerpt: My desktop is full of stuff and my room is tiny. I could not use my 61 keys, so I had to order this little keyboard. It fits in my desktop and now I can compose. I'm not a keyboardist, but I like to see what notes and chords I'm playing, so from a composer's point of view and with a tiny workspace I guess it's just fine. It was plug and play with my mac. It comes with serial numbers for "Light" versions of instruments: AAS Electric Piano, Korg M1Le...
