- “Natural Touch” mini keyboard is compact and responsive
- Excellent playing feel, suitable for both beginners and for serious performers
- Robust and authentic stereo-sampled grand piano sound
- 61 rich and vibrant sounds in all – organs, electric pianos, accordion, and more; 25 “Short Phrase Sounds” play a musical phrase by simply pressing a key
- Built-in speakers and battery power offer “play anywhere” performance
- Three stylish lid color choices: Black, Red, or White

The microPIANO features a 61-key mini-keyboard. The grand piano sound uses the same stereo samples as Korg’s flagship digital pianos.
You can choose one of three lid colors and finishes: chic Black or vivid Red, both with a high-quality mirror finish; or a stylish White.
61 Sounds including 25 Short Phrase Sounds
The microPIANO comes equipped with 61 sounds.
Keyboard sounds go beyond the traditional pianos to include electric pianos, harpsichords, accordion, celeste, organs, clavs, toy pianos and more. Outside of the keyboard family, there are also flutes, strings, harps, bells, and mallet percussion sounds – marimbas, vibes, steel drums, even kalimbas and music boxes.
Of these 61 sounds, 25 are “Short Phrase Sounds” that can automatically generate phrases simply by holding down a key. For example, these include piano sounds that provide a left-hand accompaniment in the lower range, allowing you to play the melody line with your right hand; organ sounds complete with phrases from famous pipe organ compositions; or even accompaniment phrases as often used by hand-cranked barrel organs.
Sounds such as toy piano and steel drum offer phrases mimicking the playing techniques unique to those instruments, and can be used as sound effects or as creative ideas.
Pricing for the Korg MicroPiano is TBA.
