Simple Software Control
Step into computer-based music creation and performance with the Keystation 49es keyboard controller from M-Audio. Keystation 49es is a simple, powerful MIDI controller designed for sequencing music and playing virtual instruments on your Mac or PC. It features 49 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.
