49-key, velocity sensitive, synth-action keyboard with Pro Tools SE software for instant musical satisfaction.

Powered by the same technology behind many of today's greatest hits, Avid KeyStudio instantly transforms your Mac or PC into a full-featured recording studio. The streamlined combination of Avid hardware and software—the 49-note, velocity-sensitive M-Audio KeyStudio keyboard and Pro Tools SE music creation application—makes it easy to turn your inspiration into a professional-quality song. Just connect the keyboard to your computer, fire up the software, choose from over 100 different instrument sounds, and start playing. You can build out your composition with loops from the huge included library, then add effects, polish your tracks, and share them with the world.

Make music in minutes
With integrated learning and creation tools, Pro Tools SE makes it easy to start creating all styles of music—from hip-hop and electronic, to pop, funk, jazz, rock, and blues. There's a wide array of music creation templates and a huge (3GB) audio loop library so you can play along with drum grooves or add your own percussion, bass and instrument lines.

Professional 49-note keyboard
Whether you're just getting started or playing professionally, one touch will tell you that the 49-note KeyStudio keyboard is a pleasure to play. That's because the KeyStudio is built with the same M-Audio technology used by music professionals on stage and in studios around the world.

Play piano, synths, and more
Use the 49-note KeyStudio keyboard to play the huge virtual instrument library in Pro Tools SE. The software includes over 100 studio-quality virtual instruments—from piano, organ, and synth, to guitars, bass, strings, and percussion—so you can create complete songs without a band.

Effects galore
Pro Tools SE turns your computer into a full-featured recording studio, complete with powerful effects to mix your tracks together. Make professional-sounding mixes by applying reverb, delay, EQ, compression, chorus, flanger, and many others. Pro Tools SE also delivers classic guitar amp and distortion effects to create great guitar sounds—without a noisy amplifier.

Ready for the future
If you want even more tracks, effects, virtual instruments, and loops in the future, the included M-Audio Micro USB interface is also compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software—the same recording software used by studio professionals around the world.

  • Don't bother loading the software

    As reviewed by Jeffrey Peeters on 1/2/2014

    5 stars for the keyboard. -5 for the software. It not only does not work, but it is a threat to your computer. The keyboard works fine with a REAL music program. Not the shareware included here. Toss that disc!

  • Just What I was Looking for...

    As reviewed by Michael Buturla on 1/2/2014

    I didn't want much, just to add some textures to my recordings. I use it with Guitar Tracks Pro and Sonar LE, so I really can't comment on the Pro Tools. Works perfectly to add some MIDI colors to my recordings. Price was sweet too.

  • Dope For The Money

    As reviewed by DaShawn Brown on 6/15/2013

    This piece is truly amazing. Yeah it's velocity keys are a little flawed because it takes heavy hits to get a good note but the overall piece is amazing. The pitch bend is really nice compared to some that ive used before, you can even use it like a wammy bar on guitars. The modulation can be configured to act like a arpreggatior. The volume slide is a nice touch aswell. And yes, it does come with Pro Tools SE, which is the watered down version of PT 10 or 11 but it is amazing none the less. And for the price, its a must have. Light weight for moving, though it isnt very portable. The sleek silver design of it looks nice in any room or studio, and the lit Octave and edit buttons are a nice touch. This works with all DAW's as far as I know though I have trouble with it when trying to use Reason. All In all this is a great piece, very well built, not cheap and flimsy like some other keyboards around the price range, sleek design and great for anyone seeking a nice MIDI keyboard or Pro Tools.
