49-note USB/MIDI controller with Kaossilator X-Y touchpad.
MIDI controllers are a vital component for any computer-based studio or performance. With so many options, choosing the right one can at times seem a bit overwhelming. Thankfully the Korg TAKTILE 49 USB/MIDI controller makes the decision a little easier. The TAKTILE 49 is equipped with the same great-feeling, semi-weighted keyboard that’s used on the widely popular Korg KROME and KingKORG synthesizers. In addition to its 49-note keyboard, the TAKTILE 49 offers a host of other features, some of which have not been seen on other previous models.
Korg added an intuitive Kaossilator X-Y touchpad that lets you play melodies using just a single finger, and there’s also a bank of 16 trigger pads that let you generate chords in the key and scale of your choice for instant musical inspiration and songwriting concepts. The TAKTILE 25 also features an arpeggiator with built-in rhythm patterns and various assignable controls including 8 sliders, 8 knobs, and 8 switches as well as a dedicated DAW transport controls to keep your session flowing. Of course, the TAKTILE 25 also delivers the functionality expected from a MIDI controller. It provides all of the basic controllers such as sliders and switches, and makes setup easy.
