Price comparison


The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.


Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.

Controls & Buttons

1.Has octave buttons
Korg MicroKey 37
The octave buttons are used to shift the keyboard up or down in one octave increments. This extends the range of the keyboard in either direction, which lets you play notes that lie outside the number of keys available.
The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
Faders can be either channel volume faders, pitch sliders, crossfaders or even EQs.
More knobs (rotating controls) can give the user more dedicated control over the device – e.g., volume, effects, EQs, etc. Types of knobs may differ between endless type or step type.
5.Has a pitch wheel
