OVERVIEW

88-note keyboard controller with a natural feel.

Step into computer-based music creation and performance with the Keystation 88 keyboard controller from M-Audio. Keystation 88 is a simple, powerful MIDI controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on your Mac or PC. It features 88 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 88 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 88 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 88 is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Plus, Keystation 88 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 88 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.

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.

    Comments about M-Audio Keystation 88 MKII:

    The Keystation 88 MKII feels and looks great. The keys are not exactly like a piano feel, but they're close. I use this for recording, using sounds that came with my DAW (Mixcraft 6) and it works great for that. If you already have decent piano sounds at hand, don't bother downloading the free piano software that comes with this (via a printed card). It's a pain in the neck and I STILL couldn't get it to show up in my VST's in my DAW. Probably operator error but it's not like I'm "new". I didn't download the Ableton Live Lite either, since I already had a DAW in place, so I can't review that part of it.
    I really like this keyboard! Buy it!
