OVERVIEW

61 full-sized keys with natural feel.

Step into computer-based music creation and performance with the Keystation 61 keyboard controller from M-Audio. Keystation 61 is a simple, powerful MIDI controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on your Mac or PC. It features 61 full-size velocity-sensitive keys and a series of controls that expand the range of playable notes, expressive capabilities, and enhance your recording workflow. Use the octave range buttons; pitch-bend and modulation wheels; and transport and directional controls to play, perform, and record with your music software without using a mouse or trackpad. Keystation 61 also includes a 1/4" (6.3mm) sustain pedal input that lets you use an external control pedal, such as the SP2 (sold separately), for genuine piano sustain.

Pure Player Experience
Lightweight and durable, Keystation 61 is perfect for traveling musicians who want to take command of music software during live performances or producers who wish to add an intuitive MIDI controller with a natural feeling keybed to their studio. For an easy-to-use and portable setup, Keystation 61 is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Plus, Keystation 61 supports iOS connectivity with the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (sold separately), enabling you to perform and compose with audio apps on your iPad and other iOS devices.

SONiVOX Eighty-Eight Ensemble
Bundled with Keystation 61 is a premium virtual instrument from SONiVOX. SONiVOX's Eighty-Eight Ensemble is a world-class piano instrument that authentically captures a 9-foot CD327 Steinway piano. Meticulously recorded and expertly sampled, Eighty-Eight Ensemble provides every producer and performer the opportunity to infuse their compositions, recordings, and performances with the breathtaking realism of a world-class grand piano. Use the combination patches to layer strings, synth pads, and choral pads with the high-fidelity piano samples and create evolving, lush soundscapes and textures.

Ableton Live Lite
Also included with Keystation 61 is Ableton Live Lite - one of the most popular performance and production programs available in the world. A powerful music creation tool, Ableton Live Lite enables musicians and producers to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment. Explore sonic possibilities in real time whether on stage or in the studio. When you are satisfied with your work, Ableton Live Lite lets you save it or mix it down.

    Comments about M-Audio Keystation 61 MKII:

    Works perfectly with Win 10, no issues, no drivers.
    I have been using a synth keyboard for a long time. The semi-weighted action on this keyboard requires noticeably more pressure, but in a while it seems normal, and definitely gives more control.
    The keyboard is heavier than the synth keyboard, but not so much as to be a problem.
    I am very happy that I got it...

    Not So Great

      • Poor Quality

      Best Uses

        Comments about M-Audio Keystation 61 MKII:

        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.

            Comments about M-Audio Keystation 61 MKII:

            I got a new hard drive for my iMac and my old equipment just wouldn't work with it. A friend told me about the Keystation. My son told me about Musician's Friend. I found your site and ordered my Keystation.I got the 61 key version. It arrived very quickly.

            I connected the Keystation to my computer and went to work using Finale. No fuss, no interface. It worked immediately. I love it.
