It supports the major DAW/sequencer software (*), and its easy setup lets you start creating music right away.

Any other application that supports MIDI input
Turn your software synthesizer into a Kaossilator, so you can create musical phrases easily!
The touch pad located in the center of the taktile feature the Touch Scale function that was so popular on the KORG Kaossilator. Simply stroke the touch pad to generate melodies in the key and scale that you specify; you'll be able to use easy and intuitive gestures to perform musical phrases without needing advanced musical knowledge or keyboard performance skills. There's also an arpeggiator function with fifty different rhythm patterns, so you can play your software synthesizers with a single finger just as though you were using a Kaossilator.
taktile - Using the PADs
Use the trigger pads to easily enter chords
The trigger pads placed in the right of the panel have two banks, A and B, and are also velocity-sensitive. Since the dynamics of your performance will be faithfully conveyed, your drum and percussion input will have a sense of life. The Chord Scale function automatically generates chords according to the key and scale that you specify. By using this in conjunction with the arpeggiator and the Touch Scale function of the touch pad, you'll find yourself finishing entire songs in no time at all. You can also assign chords that you yourself play, opening up endless possibilities that are limited only by your imagination.
Semi-weighted keyboard with a great playing feel
The semi-weighted keyboard featured on the KROME and KingKORG music workstations and synthesizers - used by players around the world - is also featured on the taktile. No compromises have been made in the playing feel for either the 49-key or 25-key model. You can use these keyboards not just to enter notes on your desktop music production setup, but also for real-time performance.
Touch pad that can also be used as a mouse
The touch pad can also be used as a USB track pad, with gestures such as two-fingered vertical scrolling and tapping to click. Your productivity will be boosted since there's no need to interrupt your musical workflow.
Stylish and usable design
The taktile is designed in a stylish matte finish black that you'll never tire of. With a high-contrast OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) full dot-matrix display, it's easy to check the settings on the device itself. There are two different types of LEDs available for the two trigger pad banks, A and B, providing both visual appeal and functionality. Attention has also been paid to fine details, for instance, the connectors are grouped together on the right panel so the rear panel will present a clean appearance.
The “KORG KONTROL Editor” & “Control Surface plug-in” are available
The “KORG KONTROL Editor” allows users to easily use their computer to edit and manage the settings for their taktile. For example, users can select from eight velocity curves, or a fixed velocity. In addition, detailed edits can be made to the Touch Pad, Trigger Pad plus various sliders and MIDI message assignments, to create a customized work flow for the user. These customized settings can be saved as a Scene, and users can save up to 16 scenes.
