The Korg taktile-49 may very likely be your “desert island” USB/MIDI keyboard controller. It goes well out of its way to make sure you don’t even have to touch your computer keyboard if you don’t want to. Its cool X/Y pad gives you complete creative control over effects and synths, but it can also double as a trackpad for your mouse pointer. The ribbon control can also left- and right-click, and full transport controls let you navigate your DAW with ease. And of course there’s a generous array of faders, pads, and assignable buttons, and we haven’t even gotten into the built-in arpeggiator, chord, and scale functions. The Korg taktile-49 basically gives you everything you wanted in a USB/MIDI keyboard controller – and some extras you soon won’t want to produce and perform without.
