A controller bursting with inspiration –
the KORG taktile

The Korg taktile features a stylish design that projects a sense of presence, together with the same great-feeling semi-weighted keyboard that’s used on synthesizers and music workstations such as the KingKORG and KROME. It’s loaded with functions that make it 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. Of course, the taktile also delivers the functionality that you expect from a MIDI controller. It provides all of the basic controllers such as sliders and switches, and makes setup easy so you can start producing music right away. Convenience is not the only attraction of the taktile; it’s a MIDI controller that’s full of features that will stimulate your creativity.

A full array of DAW presets and basic functionality; simply connect, and start playing

The taktile is designed for simplicity; connect it to your computer via a single USB cable and the power turns on. It supports most of the major DAW/sequencer applications, and its easy setup lets you start creating music right away. Controllers can be freely assigned, making the taktile a USB/MIDI controller that will meet all demands, from controlling a mixer to editing your software synthesizers. Supported software includes Cubase 7, Live 9, Garage Band 10, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools 10, SONAR X2, Digital Performer 8, and any other application that supports MIDI input.

Turn your software synth into a Kaossilator

The touch pad located in the center of the taktile features the Touch Scale function that was so popular on the KORG Kaossilator. Simply stroke the touch pad to generate melodies in the key and scale that you specify; you’ll be able to use easy and intuitive gestures to perform musical phrases without needing advanced musical knowledge or keyboard performance skills. There’s also an arpeggiator function with fifty different rhythm patterns, so you can play your software synthesizers with a single finger just as though you were using a Kaossilator.

The touch pad can also be used as a USB track pad, with gestures such as two-fingered vertical scrolling and tapping to click. Your productivity will be boosted since there’s no need to interrupt your musical workflow.

Korg Taktile USB MIDI Controller - Trigger Pad

Use the trigger pads to easily enter chords

The trigger pads placed in the right of the panel have two banks, A and B, and are also velocity-sensitive. Since the dynamics of your performance will be faithfully conveyed, your drum and percussion input will have a sense of life. The Chord Scale function automatically generates chords according to the key and scale that you specify. By using this in conjunction with the arpeggiator and the Touch Scale function of the touch pad, you’ll find yourself finishing entire songs in no time at all. You can also assign chords that you yourself play, opening up endless possibilities that are limited only by your imagination.

Semi-weighted keyboard with a great playing feel

The semi-weighted keyboard featured on the KROME and KingKORG music workstations and synthesizers that are used by players around the world is also featured on the taktile. No compromises have been made in the playing feel for either the 49-key or 25-key model. You can use these keyboards not just to enter notes on your desktop music production setup, but also for real-time performance.

Korg Taktile USB MIDI Controller - Style, Function and Design

Stylish, functional design

The taktile is designed in a stylish matte finish black that you’ll never tire of. With a high-contrast OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) full dot-matrix display, it’s easy to check the settings on the device itself. There are two different types of LEDs available for the two trigger pad banks, A and B, providing both visual appeal and functionality. Attention has also been paid to fine details, for instance, the connectors are grouped together on the right panel so the rear panel will present a clean appearance.
