Realize the potential of your computer music setup!
The Novation X-Station 49 MIDI Controller combines a first-class 49-key keyboard, killer sounds, MIDI control, a MIDI interface and mouthwatering effects, in a compact, portable controller that can be powered with USB or batteries.
The Novation X-Station MIDI Controller employs a premium-class mechanism with semi-weighted keys and aftertouch. Even novice piano players will instantly feel the difference. Aftertouch, a joystick, and the assignable X/Y touch pad controller provide you with extra dimensions of expression for your performances.
Audio and MIDI Interfaces
Novation X-Station keyboard controller includes a fully featured audio interface with 2 phantom-powered, hi-quality converters, 2 Neutrik combined XLR and 1/4" inputs, digital S/PDIF out, and much more. The X-Station's dedicated headphone and monitoring connections with separate controls even allow you to work without a mixer. The onboard DSP effects processor provides instant, zero-latency multi-effects for monitoring or recording applications. Each of the Novation X-Station's audio channels has its own effects chain. You can even record audio with effects on one channel and use the synthesizer on the second at the same time!
On top of that, the X-Station has a MIDI Interface, allowing you to integrate external MIDI gear with your Novation keyboard controller.
The fully featured hardware synthesizer also runs on the unique Novation X-Station hardware thanks to its powerful DSP processor. The X-Station's 3-oscillator virtual analog synthesizer is based on the renowned Novation KS-series and is 8-voice polyphonic. The extensive control interface provides instant access to all key parameters, making it ideal for live performances.
No cables are necessary as the Novation synth is fully integrated: The stereo audio output is sent straight through the USB cable onto the track in your sequencer via ASIO!
The Novation X-Station provides 2 channels of onboard multi-effects. Up to 6 effects may be used simultaneously on each channel. The palette includes chorus, delay, reverb, distortion, EQ, and even a compressor. The X-Station's effects can be routed for monitoring only (like giving the singer some reverb while recording) or for recording as well (for example, recording a guitar with chorus). Thanks to the Novation X-Station's unique design, synthesizer and effects for incoming audio can even be used at the same time!
Direct Remote Control
Want a first class remote control for sequencer functions? Need a hardware surface for your VST-Instruments? Would you like to remotely control other hardware from one surface? The X-Station MIDI Controller provides the solution - no matter if you want to remote control your Access Virus or Propellerhead Reason.
The Novation X-Station offers a total of 55 assignable physical controls, including 3 encoders, 16 pots, 9 sliders, and 22 buttons. And that doesn't include the dedicated controls in the audio section. A template can have up to a massive 150 virtual controls in total using the shift functions!
Tired Of Wires?
The Novation X-Station only needs one for everything - the USB cable. That's it. Even power is provided via USB or batteries whenever desired! So if you really want to make your recordings on the beach - take your laptop, Novation X-Station keyboard MIDI controller and enjoy the sun as inspiration. But don't say we didn't warn you about the sunburn and the sand all over your gear!
