    Everything you want in a controller and more!

    The Novation X-Station synthesizer combines a first-class 61-key keyboard, killer sounds, MIDI control, a MIDI interface and mouth-watering effects, in a compact, portable controller that can be powered with USB or batteries.

    The X61 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
    The Novation X-Station 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 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.

    Hardware Synthesizer
    The fully featured hardware synthesizer also runs on the unique 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 neccessary as the synth is fully integrated: The stereo audio output is sent straight through the USB cable onto the track in your sequencer via ASIO!

    DSP Effects
    The 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 (for example giving the singer some reverb while recording) or for recording as well (for example recording a guitar with chorus).
    Thanks to the 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 provides the solution - no matter if you want to remote control your Access Virus or Propellarheads Reason.

    The 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 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, X-Station and enjoy the sun as inspiration. But don't say we didn't warn you about the sun-burn and the sand all over your gear!

    Comments about Novation X-Station 61 MIDI Controller:

    I purchased this to be a controller for my Nord 88, thinking I could have a fully weighted piano with a controller to handle the outstanding organs and synth section, but I was blown away by the synth section on this piece, thus I now want to play this as an instrument instead of a controller... back to looking for another controller :-(
