Korg's Micro Kontrol was wildly popular, but many shied away because it had tiny keys. The Kontrol49 has the favorite features of the Micro — plus some extras — but gives your digits full-sized black & whites:

  • Pro-feel, full-size keys with the "Korg touch" and 8 velocity curves
  • Traditional pitch and mod wheels plus a new vector joystick (hello, filters!)
  • Footswitch / footpedal ins, octave shift for 128 virtual keys
  • Assignable faders / rotary knobs with LCD displays for each, plus
    drum pad-style 'performance pads' — the features we loved on the Micro
  • Automatically maps to Reason, Korg Legacy Collection
  • USB + MIDI interfaces, Windows/Mac-compatible

Pricing and availability not yet available. (There's some OTHER Korg
keyboard being announced today that seems to be stealing all the
thunder . . . now what could that be . . .)
