Comments about M-Audio Keystation 49 II:
Seems when you upgrade to protools 11.1 or higher, I am running 11.3 something or other. The keyboard and protools do not communicate. Computer sees it as connected. Read forums, tried various approaches, (even in protools set up in midi controller and all). It could be a protools thing, but just to warn you, they do not work together at this point. Now I am must journey to another source for a keyboard. Something that maybe has usb and midi in/outs. Other than that, it worked just fine and it is a sturdy build and has nice feels.

Comments about M-Audio Keystation 49 II:
Even with almost a month under my belt, the 'plug and play' drivers seemed to conflict with Sonar X3 and Print Music 2011. I just installed X3 undates and maybe that will solve the problem.
The latency issue was one I didn't expect since it doesn't occur over all programs - ie Addictive keys where it works great.
