Full-range Control!You know what the most important thing about a controller keyboard is? It's the keyboard part! If you can do without all of those fancy buttons and knobs you're not going to touch anyway, then you shouldn't have to pay for them, right? That's what M-Audio thinks too, which is why they're proud to offer you a 88-key keyboard controller with an excellent full-sized keybed and a phenomenal price. The M-Audio Keystation 88es provides you with 88 velocity-sensitive keys that are semi-weighted, giving you enough resistance for piano-style playing and enough spring for responsive, synth-style parts. With the Keystation 88es, you also get a free download of Avid Ignite music creation software.
Here's another important question: do you enjoy the process of installing drivers and rebooting your computer? If you answered that question sanely, then you'll also be glad to know that there's none of that nonsense involved with the Keystation 88es either. And as an added bonus, the Keystation 88es gives you a single programmable slider for controlling your virtual instruments' volume, and a pair of programmable buttons. Plus, the Keystation 88es gets its power from the same USB port it sends MIDI over, so there's no fumbling around with a power supply either.
