[Musikmesse] Korg microPIANO Shipping
Korg announces that their piano is now available.
Korg's microPIANO features 61 keys, as well as design elements from a grand piano, including an adjustable lid. The Korg microPIANO is available in Black, White and Red.
The microPIANO borrows its piano sound (and stereo piano samples) from Korg's digital pianos. In total, there are 61 sounds available. Keyboard sounds include electric pianos, harpsichords, accordion, celeste, organs, clavs, toy pianos and more. In addition, there are also flutes, strings, harps, bells and mallet percussion sounds – marimbas, vibes, steel drums, as well as kalimbas and music boxes.
Of these 61 sounds, 25 are "Short Phrase Sounds" that can automatically generate phrases simply by holding down a key. For example, piano sounds that provide a left-hand accompaniment in the lower range, allowing the melody line to be played with the right hand; organ sounds with phrases from pipe organ compositions; and more.
The "Natural Touch" keyboard provides 61 mini-keys. The touch-sensitive keys are shaped in the traditional grand piano style, with square fronts and overhanging lip.
The body features built-in speakers and the option of battery power. The headphone jack allows for private practice.
