Simple but effective.

Comments about M-Audio KeyStudio 49 MIDI Controller:

I ended up converting my keystudio into a keytar by drilling holes into the sides so as not to distrupt the electronics, using screws and oversized washers to secure makeshift "straplocks". I plan to use this onstage one day with a wireless, which should be sweet. Overall, I love the simplicity and portability. For studio use I'd reccomend the m-audio oxygen series but if you're on the go, this is fantastic.
This unit features 49 velocity sensitive keys, the standard modwheel and pitch wheels, a volume slider, two octave transposer buttons and an advanced functions button, which is used in conjunction with the keys themselves to control midi settings. (Midi patch or bank selection, etc.) Personally I would have liked some assignable knobs but it works perfectly for what it was built for, which is being simple, effective and cheap.
Surprisingly, this unit is very durable. I have hand tested it by taking it apart and subjecting the body frame to a psi test to see how much pressure it can take. I don't remember the exact number but it was surprisingly high. I didn't test the electronics themselves because I assume M-Audio didn't design their internal systems to be subjected to psi tests.
The keys play alright, and I prefer them to the mini keys commonly put on smaller budget models. My only complaint is that they are "too" sensitive sometimes, leading to some notes ending up really soft despite my harsh touch on a normal piano.
You get what you pay for. And in this case, this is probably exactly what you were expecting. For the features given, it's durability and price, you can't go wrong.

Comments about M-Audio KeyStudio 49 MIDI Controller:

For this price, or any price up close to it, GET IT. it is perfect for the Mac recording. I make a ton of music with this
Some people say they'd like a headphone output on the keyboard but that can all be done through the Mac. This has everything you need. Unless you want like a drum machine and 20-band eq on it this is very perfect.
They keys aren't really weighted but it really isn't an issue. Sometimes the issue is having one key not being hit properly once in a while but that can be fixed with editing midi notes.
for the price, THIS IS A MUST BUY
