M-Audio KEYSTATION61II overview

  • 1Description

The Keystation 61 II from M-Audio is a MIDI keyboard controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on a Mac or PC computer. It features 61 full-size velocity-sensitive keys and a series of controls that expand the range of playable notes, while also providing expressive capabilities. The keyboard ships with two pieces of software, a virtual piano instrument from SONiVOX, and Ableton Live Lite music creation software.

Transport and directional controls allow for playing, performing, and recording with music software without using a mouse or trackpad. A 1/4" (6.3 mm) sustain pedal input accepts an optional control pedal for genuine piano sustain. Lightweight and durable, the controller is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Additionally, the unit supports iOS connectivity using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (sold separately), enabling one to perform and compose with audio apps on an iPad or another iOS device.

SONiVOX's Eighty-Eight Ensemble is a piano instrument that authentically captures a 9-foot CD327 Steinway piano. Meticulously recorded and expertly sampled, the instrument provides anyone the opportunity to add to their compositions, recordings, and performances the realism of a world-class grand piano. Use the combination patches to layer strings, synth pads, and choral pads with the piano samples to create evolving, lush soundscapes and textures.

Ableton Live Lite is a performance and production program that is perfect for spontaneous composition or improvising, recording, remixing and editing musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment.

    M-Audio KEYSTATION61II reviews

    Keystation 61 II - MIDI Controller is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Awful Not so great. The action is springy and the keys yellow after a year or so. If you write to them about it, they tell you, There is no way to replace a product for aesthetic issues that do not cause any playability issues. Obviously M-Audio does not care about their customers. Avoid M-Audio products if you like nice musical instruments. The company has issues.
