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.

I'm using this to capture baroque keyboard performance using garage band on a mac, and it works really well for that. There's a C# in bar 25 of the C# major fugue in book 2 of the well tempered clavier, which you would have to map to a drum pad, but, otherwise, you can pretty much play the whole thing. The keyboard is compact--not so much as some other 49 key controllers, maybe--but the key action is substantially better than all of the lower priced ones. And actually, it's about as narrow as any 49-key controller could be. It doesn't feel like a toy, and overall, the instrument is solidly constructed and the controls thoughtfully laid out. Being USB-powered is great, as is the DAW transport configuration. Ability to use of the 'kaossilator' as a track pad to control the host computer is useful. I think it's great, and I'm really glad I bought it.
Best midi controller I have ever owned, and the funnest! Keyboard is solid, keys feel amazing, pads are as good if not better than Maschine's pads, very responsive. There are two pad banks. Bank A lights up in red, and B in green. The XY pad is probably the most fun and interesting way to come up with random patterns, perfect if you want to do glitch. Arpeggiator is a nice bonus, it does have 50 patterns as well as gate time, arp range in octaves, swing, and a latch. Knobs and sliders feel nice and are solid, as well as the wheels. I like the feel of the transport and track buttons as well. I just love this keyboard! The only problem is the length of the usb cable they ship with it, very short but most people I know have another longer cable.
