The M-Audio Keystation 49 II 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 broaden the range of playable notes, expand expressive capabilities, and enhance your recording workflow. Octave-range buttons; pitch-bend and modulation wheels; and transport and directional controls make it easy to play, perform, and record in your music software without using a mouse or track pad.

Keystation 49 II also includes a 1/4” sustain-pedal input that lets you use an external control pedal, such as M-Audio’s SP2, for genuine piano sustain.

To get you started composing, we bundled the Keystation 49 II with a premium virtual instrument from SONiVOX. SONiVOX’s Eighty-Eight Ensemble is a world-class piano instrument that captures a 9-foot CD327 Steinway piano’s sound. Finally, we included Ableton Live Lite — one of the world’s most popular performance and production programs.
