Description

The Keystation Series is the world's best-selling range of keyboard controllers, and M-Audio will no doubt maintain that accolade with the inclusion of the Keystation 49 MK3 - a simple, powerful USB MIDI controller designed for sequencing and playing virtual instruments on your digital devices.

This compact controller has some lovely features that would benefit all sorts of musicians. Although it brandishes 49 full size velocity-sensitive synth-action natural feel keys, it remains highly portable and has a small footprint to aide an on-stage set-up. In addition, the MK3 also offers precision control and expression of a standard that any studio producer might require.

The ergonomically designed pitch and modulation wheels provide the perfect sensitivity for the widest range of expressive performance, and just like the volume fader and octave range buttons, are fully customisable to any DAW or plugin parameter. Fully assignable directional and transport buttons are also conveniently positioned for DAW/software control, allowing users to perform and record with music software without using a mouse or trackpad.

Class compliant, the MK3 is USB powered and doesn't require any set-up or driver installation - it supports plug-in-and-play connectivity. iPad and iOS device connectivity is also supported using the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (sold separately).

The Keystation 49 MK3 comes full to the hilt with some amazing premium software packages:

Ableton Live Lite is a hugely popular performance and production program designed to help capture spontaneous off the cuff performances. It’s simple immediacy allows for ultimate creativity - ready to capture without delaying ‘the moment’. Ableton Live Lite is perfect for musicians and producers who like to work in a creatively fluid environment, with quick recording and editing functions to assist fast flowing productivity.

M-Audio and AVID have collaborated and the result is the Pro Tools | First M-Audio edition recording software - an exclusive version of the industry standard Pro Tools specifically tailored for M-Audio. This version of the powerful recording tool features Elastic Time, Elastic Pitch, Unlimited Busses,Offline Bounce, and a handy 1GB of free cloud storage for easy access and sharing. The Pro Tools | First M-Audio edition is also compatible with all of the included AIR Music Tech Instruments also included.

AIR Music’s Mini Grand instrument offers seven different authentic, premium quality acoustic piano sounds that have been designed to cover a broad range of musical styles. Mini Grand is a powerful virtual piano plugin that combines built-in room simulation, equal and stretched tuning, and innovative re-pedaled technology to provide a great array of expressive sounds.

AIR Music also provide the MK3 with some awesome sounding retro electric piano voices from the 60’s and 70’s courtesy of their Velvet plugin. The legendary Fender Rhodes Suitcase, Fender Rhodes MK1 and MK2 Stage Pianos, Wurlitzer 200A and Hohner Pianet-T are wonderfully and accurately simulated with great response and energy.

AIR Music’s Xpand!2 is a great tool for patch creation that offers thousands of sound setting possibilities. With 4 active sound slots per patch, and each slot provided with its own MIDI channel, Mix, Modulation, Arpeggiation, Note Range and Effects settings, users have the power to combine these multiple combinations to create some amazing sound patches.

Learning tools are provided by the included Skoove and Melodics online lessons, covering everything from piano playing to synth, pad, and drum tutorials, and sample editing is easier than ever before, due to the great Touch Loops sample editor.

The M-Audio Keystation 49 MK3 is a very impressive, intuitive controller that will allow you to comprehensive control, expressive capabilities, and enhance your recording workflow.
