The Masterkey 49 from Acorn is a 49-key, velocity sensitive USB MIDI controller with a compact design that fits perfectly on a computer desk while providing all the control needed for unfettered creativity. The keys have a dynamic and fast response ideal for programming bass lines, drums, or synthesizer lines. The keyboard ships with a copy of PreSonus Studio One Artist software, but is compatible with any standard MIDI software program.

Four assignable knobs and an assignable single fader provide real-time control of instrument or mix parameters, even while playing. Rubberized pitch bend and modulation wheels allow for further articulation. The three-digit LED display provides navigational feedback making it quick and easy to find the right menus for changing MIDI channels, sending out program changes, transposing or programming the real-time controls. Octave buttons instantly shift the keyboard range up and down.

The Masterkey 49 is USB class-compliant, which means that no drivers are needed for supported operating systems. Simply plug the keyboard into a USB port on the computer and the operating system does the rest. The included Studio One Artist software is a powerful recording and production platform that allows for working quickly and staying focused. It offers unlimited tracks and plug-ins, employs extensive use of drag-and-drop, and is easy to learn.

    Excellent cheap option

    By Mikey

    Comments about Acorn Masterkey 49 - USB MIDI Controller:

    I play in a few art rock bands and i needed a simple midi keyboard without many bells and whistles--this acorn keyboard totally does the trick. The construction isn't total garbage like most anything else you'd find for the price and it worked quite nicely without any drivers, just needed to tweak a thing or two in the audio midi setup and i was good to go.

    Comments about Acorn Masterkey 49 - USB MIDI Controller:

    This keyboard is great for my uses! I do very simple songs, and this keyboard is perfect for composing, performing, and recording. It is very sturdy, with a simple feel, allowing you to just plug it into your computer and you are ready to play! The software is excellent, giving beginners such as myself easy access and explanation to all the necessary controls, yet it is designed for extremely detailed work. I would highly recommend this product!
