M-Audio KEYSTATION 61 MK3 Overview

The M-Audio Keystation 61 MK3 is a MIDI keyboard controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on a Mac or Windows computer. It features 61 full-size, semi-weighted, and velocity-sensitive keys for a realistic, pianistic feel. The Keystation 61 MK3 also sports a series of controls that expand the range of playable notes, while providing expressive capabilities as well.

Assignable transport and directional controls allow for playing, performing, and recording with music software without using a mouse or trackpad. If you've got your own sustain pedal, you can plug it into the Keystation 61 MK3 via its 1/4" sustain pedal input.

Lightweight and durable, the controller is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. A 5-pin DIN MIDI output facilitates use with your favorite, compatible synth, so it can receive messages from the Keystation 61. Additionally, the unit supports iOS connectivity using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (available separately), enabling one to perform and compose with audio apps on an iPad or another iOS device.

The Keyboard comes with a variety of software, including DAWs such as Pro Tools | First M-Audio Edition and Ableton Live Lite. Also included is AIR Music Technology Xpand!2, a multitimbral all-in-one virtual instrument that lets you stack up to four individual sounds to create your own unique-sounding patches.

Keyboard sounds can be achieved via three included AIR Music Technology soft-synths: The Mini Grand, with seven acoustic piano sounds, and the Velvet, which gives you five vintage electric piano sounds. Additional software includes Skoove and Melodics. You also get 2GB of Touch Loops material to foster your creativity. The keyboard comes with a USB type-A to USB Type-B cable.

M-Audio KEYSTATION 61 MK3 Reviews

M-Audio Keystation 61 MK3 delivers

I was looking for a simple and solid USB-powered MIDI keyboard controller to work with Pro Tools and SampleTank that has good action and doesn't feel like a toy. The M-Audio Keystation 61 is exactly that. The semi-weighted keys feel almost like a real piano, the design is sleek and ergonomic, as a string player with little piano chops, I feel comfortable getting around on this keyboard and not hitting lots of accidental notes that I would on a synth action keyboard. I also like that it doesn't require a driver, so hopefully will work through many future OS upgrades.

Excellent Midi Controller

Great feeling keys. Good size. It feels like it has some sturdiness to it. No frills, works great.

Overall decent key for price.

Ordered this keyboard in hopes of it being a great upgrade from a 2 octave akai pro mini. first thing that struck me was the price. not bad for a 61 key, semi weighted keyboard. i recieved the keyboard and love everything about it BUT the weight from the keys seemed to disappear fairly quickly, either that or i’m just really used to pressing them now. overall good keyboard, just wish the keys kept weight.
