View Full Description
The Korg taktile has the same great-feeling semi-weighted keyboard used on synthesizers and workstations such as the KingKORG and KROME. It's designed to be fun to play and use, such as a touch pad inherited from the Kaossilator that lets you play melodies using just a single finger, trigger pads that let you generate chords in the key and scale of your choice and an arpeggiator that includes rhythm patterns. As a MIDI Controller, the taktile fully delivers with a range of basic controllers such as sliders and switches making it easy to set-up and play straight away.
The taktile is designed with simplicity in mind. Connect it to your computer via a USB cable and it powers up. The taktile supports the major DAW/sequencer software and controllers can be freely assigned making this a USB/MIDI controller that will meet all demands from controlling a mixer to editing your software synthesizers.
The popular Touch Scale function from the Korg Kaossilator is located in the taktile's centre. Simply stroke the touch pad to generate melodies in the key and scale that you specify! No need for advanced musical knowledge or performance skills - just easy and intuitive movements. There's also an arpeggiator function with fifty different rhythm patterns so you can play software synths with a single finger.
Trigger Pads for Easy Chords
The trigger pads in the right of the panel have two banks, A and B, and are velocity sensitive, giving drum and percussion sounds full expression. The Chord Scale function automatically generates chords according to the key and scale that you choose plus you can assign chords that you play yourself. Using this along with the arpeggiator and the Touch Scale function you'll discover immense power to complete full songs in no time at all.
Great Playing Feel
The Korg taktile's semi-weighted keyboard can be used to enter notes on your desktop music production setup and for real time performance. The touch pad can slo be used as a USB track pad with gestures such as two fingered scrolling and tapping to click with no need to interrupt your workflow. The taktile has a stylish matte black finish and a high contrast OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) full dot matrix display so you can easily check the device's settings.
The Korg taktile keyboard comes with numerous license/discount coupons meaning that you'll be enjoying popular music software straight away.
