The microKEY 37 has been around for a while now, you can get it in to different versions. It comes with the classic style or the limited edition version that cost more. Either way, they both come with Korg M1 LE VST that you can use as a plug in for any DAW that you use to create with. The software alone is worth more than the price of the 37 key USB controllers itself. This is a great buy with this controller because for 70 dollars you are getting a great portable controller that you can use wherever you go and you are also getting a software bundle of sounds and awesome presets.


It does come with a manual, but you would only really need the manual that comes with the Korg software so you can set it up and get it running. All of the basic functions of the keyboard controller are easy to use and understand.


This controller is BUS powered so you don’t have to worry about having it plugged into a wall jack because the power is provided right from your USB port. It is one of the most portable keyboard controllers you will every own. You can even purchase this controller in the 25 key version for about 70 bucks.
When you purchase this controller you will have everything you need right out of the box to get it up and running and start using it right away. It does not have any transport controls on it nor does it have any assignable knobs or sliders. But it does have a modulation stick to tweak your sounds with. The keys are velocity sensitive and have a nice feel to them. They are not weighted though and feel rather cheap but that is because they whole unit is rather inexpensive. But it is still the ultimate portable controller.
