We Think

An exciting hardware/software combination, the Keystation-49 is a bare-bones USB/MIDI input keyboard, centred around a 49-note touch sensitive controller, but with a robust build quality.

The Keystation 49 (49-note) provides essential pitchbend and modulation wheels as well as a single (assignable) continuous slider and octave shift buttons for reaching beyond the 4-octave note range.

With a 'synth' key action, the touch-sensitive keyboard needs no mains power as it is USB bus powered directly from the students computer.

Supplied with a free copy of Ableton Live Lite, the Keystation is a very popular model with our educational customers, the Keystation is just as suited to those in a home recording environment who want a compact, easy-to-use system.
