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.

    Masterkey 49 - USB MIDI Controller is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Basic, Very Good I bought this to interface with GarageBand. I am learning how to play with the final goal of creating some basic scoring for some of my video pieces. Right out of the box I plugged it in and was playing in seconds. For the price this is exactly what I was looking for. Not to complicated but functional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Keyboard! 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent cheap option 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the price I use this keyboard with Studio One for recording my music compositions. Keys are touch sensitive and works great with all the plugins. Very light and sturdy. Recognized By Studio One-very easy to install. Usb powered is great! Add in Studio One Artist with this controller-what a deal!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Basic MIDI Controller This replaced a malfunctioning MIDI controller by another manufacturer. I use it primarily as an input device with Finale and it works beautifully. It doesn't have some of the bells and whistles of some more expensive MIDI controllers, but it suits my needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Setup, Highly Versatile We're using this in a small professional studio for video backgrounds. Easy setup with the downloadable drivers. Surprisingly versatile, good feature set for a keyboard at this price point. Also bought M-Audio SP-2 Sustain Pedal, plugs and plays with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and works great I bought this product for use with Hauptwerk and it works great. Hauptwerk detected it straight away so I didn't even have to set it up. Very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple.. Everything needed Works like a charm. I appreciate how simple it is. The USB cable it comes with is pretty short but you can probably find a longer one laying around your house.
