Korg taktile 25

Korg taktile-25

4.35 4.35 out of 5, based on 1 Review

Extremely clean, multifunctional controller with only the necessary buttons: no frills, easy to use, nice to look at, but Korg should have spent a bit more on the fine touches and details for this price. No automap, but that's great for those of us who find automap annoying.

Korg taktile 25

pros:

  • looks amazing, the cleanest controller on the market
  • extremely easy to use with ableton, logic, etc.
  • full size keys, nice action on mod & pitch wheel
  • x/y touchpad assignable, very easy to use too.
  • drum pads double as chord macros w/tons of scales
  • arpeggiator is easy and has lots of patterns
  • can toggle between DAW control and assignable controllers easily. This feature is AWESOME.
  • very stable, feels locked to my desk
  • auto-off mode doesn't waste OLED life and allows you to keep it plugged in

cons:
  • no aftertouch for $250 is unusual
  • LEDs do not diffuse well in button material, they just are centered and bright
  • drum pads are kind of cheap and have an audible tap when contact is made
  • side-mounted i/o port is annoying, should be in back ? keys feel kind of bendy, could have a bit more weight to them
  • just feels a bit plasticky and cheap (more like m-audio than like novation or akai) because unit is hollow plastic with no interior dampening. Compare this with the novations with aluminum shell and wood sides at similar price point.
