Product Description

The new Keystation Pro 88 is the first USB master MIDI controller designed specifically to let you perform, program and mix music directly with your computer. Regardless of whether you're a seasoned pro or just ready to take your music to the next level, our 88-key hammer action is so expressive that you simply won't want to stop playing it. And the complement of 59 (yes, 59) assignable controls delivers more than enough tactile command over your favorite soft synths and digital audio sequencers like Reason and Live. This bus-powered master controller unifies everything you need to experience the full potential of today's virtual studios-and at a price and weight lighter than you'd expect.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (162 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good Value For Price"
Sound: No sound - its a controller Feature: Knobs, Sliders, Buttons, Keys - lots of all of them. What's not to like? 4 zones, USB interface, great value. Keyboard feel is so-so. Weighted, little mushy/heavy. Adjusting velocity curves helps a lot. Consider that you're getting the equivalent of a Mackie C4+ Keyboard in the bargain and its a great deal. Ease of Use: The manual is weak. Software for programming it is so-so. It takes some digging to realize potential. Quality: Feels a bit on the cheap side - but for the price - you can't lose. Value: Really good value for the price I think. Manufacturer Support: Once you reach them, they are good. But long hold times.... The Wow Factor: Its pretty sexy with all those knobs, buttons, sliders, and keys. Overall: Should do fine - use it in studio - might buy a second one for live because I hate tearing it out of my studio to go gig.
Style of Music: Rock, Pop, Alternative, Film Scoring

M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 Customer Review
Feature: feature overload. Quality: My only complaint is that the keys have a awkward bit of bounce to them -- when doing rapid drills, there is a point beyond which the keys can't keep up with your fingers. Value: Definitely worth the price. There was nothing anywhere near this price range that met my requirements. The Wow Factor: This is a very pretty piece of gear.
Style of Music: classical / experimental

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
