A joystick on the MicroKey Air offers control over pitch bend and modulation, expanding your expressive capabilities. It also features an arpeggiator function, allowing you to create intricate and dynamic musical patterns. These additional performance controls, despite the keyboard's compact size, offer a wealth of creative possibilities.
