OVERVIEW

Controller with fader, transport and directional buttons.

Start creating and performing music with your Mac or PC with the world’s best-selling keyboard controllers: The Keystation Series from M-Audio.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro looking for just the right controls or are looking to get started with the right USB MIDI controller, the Keystation 49es is a simple, powerful MIDI controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on your Mac or PC. Keystation 49es features 49 natural feeling full-size velocity-sensitive keys and comprehensive controls that expand the range of playable notes, expressive capabilities, and enhance your recording workflow.

With Keystation 49es, maximizing your creativity while minimizing the complication is easy: Use the fully assignable octave range buttons; pitch-bend and modulation wheels; volume slider, and transport and directional controls to play, perform, and record with your music software without using a mouse or trackpad. Keystation 49es also features a 1/4” (6.3mm) sustain pedal input that lets you use an external control pedal, such as the M-Audio SP2 (sold separately), for genuine piano sustain.

Pure Player Experience
Compact, lightweight and durable, Keystation 49es is perfect for musicians who want to take command of music software during live performances or for producers who wish to add an intuitive MIDI controller with a natural feeling keybed to their studio—it easily satisfies both roles. For an easy-to-use and portable setup, Keystation 49es is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Plus, Keystation 49es supports iOS connectivity with the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (sold separately), enabling you to perform and compose with audio apps on your iPad and other iOS devices.

AIR Music Technology Velvet

AIR Music’s Xpand.2 is a multitimbral workstation offering four active sound slots, or parts, per patch. Each part is provided with its own MIDI channel, Note Range (Zone), Mix, Arpeggiation, Modulation, and Effects settings—an excellent method for creating individual parts. Harnessing the four parts together to build one amazing Patch is where Xpand.2 reveals its true power. Using everything from wavetables and FM synthesis to sample playback, the expert sound design team at Air Music Tech has carefully created thousands of ready-to-play Xpand.2 patches.
