Regardless of how seriously you are as a producer, composer or songwriter, one tool that you will need is a midi controller. We live in a world of computer-based music production and creation, making the simple midi controller an indispensable tool. If you don’t already have one, then you should consider the M-Audio Keystation 49.
M-Audio Keystation 49
The M-Audio Keystation 49 is a simple to use, yet powerful midi controller, and it is compatible with both PC and Mac. The 49-key controller features 49 full-size, velocity sensitive keys. This means that you will be able to convey nuance and expression into your playing.
In addition, it features a full set of controls to allow you to expand the range of playable notes and expressive capabilities. This will allow you to streamline and optimise your recording workflow.
The Keystation 49 is both durable and lightweight making it the perfect option for travelling musicians and producers. Now, you can have full control of your software no matter where you go; whether it be in studio or live on stage.
The keyboard is easy to setup thanks to its universal support of USB and MIDI over USB. And to make things even easier, it is powered directly from a USB cable. So you won’t need to worry about running extra power cables or worry about leaving your power bank at home.
Just simply toss the keyboard in a bag with your laptop and you are good to go!
Ableton Live Lite
To ensure that you can start recording and using your Keystation from the moment you take it home, it comes bundled with a copy of Ableton Live Lite. Ableton is one of the most popular production programmes available in the world. It enables musicians and producers to easily and spontaneously compose on the fly.
