61 key Wireless MIDI Keyboards

Does anyone have any recommendations regarding 61 key MIDI controllers with Bluetooth connectivity?

I'm finding there aren't a lot of options, however the Korg microKey Air is looking fairly appealing. It appears to have very similar keys/action to the Korg microSampler, which I'm familiar with and find surprisingly responsive and comfortable to play (as someone with stubby fingers).

Key features I prefer are Pitch/Mod wheels and optional sustain pedal.

Any advice on this would be appreciated.


  • I think the microkey is where you want to be if you’re okay with that smaller key size. I have the 49 and it is great!

  • Any keyboard you like and one of the Yamaha BT adaptors

    I use the Yamaha MDBT01 with a 61 key Novation X-Station. Great combo. These are brilliant midi controllers with a nice action. Can be picked up quite reasonably 2nd hand.

  • Thanks for the quick feedback!

    @mjcouche I've seen lots of good reviews for the 49, especially when paired with iPad. The negative comments I've seen were mostly pertaining to BT connections with Windows10, which is not part of my workflow anyway.

    @BiancaNeve @SpookyZoo The MDBT01 is great, I use it with the Korg microSampler for a 37 key controller. I've used it with a Roland S-10 with decent results too. There are a couple of keyboard synths I've considered, however they're usually in the $350-$600 range for anything with 61 keys. The $175-$225 range is more within my budget at the moment. In a dream world I'd be looking at a Nord Electro B)

    I should note, another thing I really find appealing about the microKey is the fact that it can run on 2 AA batteries and doesn't weigh too much. The idea of having a 5 octave keyboard that pairs with my phone and can be carried easily is exciting to me.

  • I have Korg Micro Key Air (61 keys) and it works great . Keys are small but not a problem .Unless you really really need or want full size keys for your purposes.
