    Korg Kontrol 49

    USB MIDI Controller Keyboard

    Korg's Microkontrol was a highly versatile, yet compact MIDI controller — but perhaps, with its three octaves of miniature keys, it was too compact. The Kontrol 49 looks set to put that right with its four-octave, full-size keyboard.

    M-Audio O2

    USB MIDI Controller Keyboard

    Thin is clearly 'in' amongst manufacturers of keyboard controllers. Mere months after the arrival of Edirol's slender PCR1, M-Audio weigh in with the equally waif-like O2. But is it slim and trim, or just a lightweight?

    Edirol PCR1

    USB MIDI Controller Keyboard & Audio Interface
