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.
