Nick spoke to Ian from Korg about the new velocity sensitive MicroKey 25 (49.95 GBP) and the MicroKey 61 (129.99 GBP).

Wait - so the 25-key has a sustain button but the 37 & 61-keys don't have any means to control sustain? That doesn't make much sense. Come on Korg, add a sustain input jack already, or come out with a usb sustain pedal!

sustain should be on the 49 and 61 keyboards

How Micro are these? THe keys look short obviously but are they a proper width, or are they reduced by width as well?

1 octave span is 14 cm, but if you can cope with the small keys these are the best small keys I've ever played.

no aftertouch. Is the industry leaving aftertouch off because they don't think we want it? I know I do.

I'm with Eric... I use aftertouch at least as much as the mod wheel. I can't buy a synth that doesn't have it. Back in the day, even low end gear (Yamaha SY-22, Kawai K1, etc.) made use of aftertouch. Now, only the highest end synths and workstations seem to use it. And the Blofeld keyboard (nice action on that one too!)
