Simple Software Control

Step into computer-based music creation and performance with the Keystation 61 keyboard controller from M-Audio. Keystation 61 is a simple, powerful MIDI controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on your Mac or PC. It features 61 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 61 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.

Lightweight and durable, Keystation 61 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 61 is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Plus, Keystation 61 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.
