Overview

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

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:

      Wanted a full keyboard and chose the M-Audio 88. Have been happy with their products. I mainly play guitar/bass and use this keyboard to trigger additional instruments using VST's on my recordings. For what I use it for, it fills my needs extremely well.

          I was pleasantly surprised by the solid build of this keyboard. The action is great. It's Plug 'n Play with the Mac. I like it very much.

            Comments about M-Audio Keystation 88 MKII:

            It doesnt feel like a piano, you have yo really have yo press the keys to make a good sound. It is an excellent option if you want to produce your own música. But if you want to practice piano i wouldnt recommend it.
