61 Keys, Zero Headaches!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 simple 61-key keyboard controller with an excellent keybed and a phenomenal price. The M-Audio Keystation 61es provides you with 61 velocity-sensitive keys that are semi-weighted, giving you enough resistance for piano-style playing and enough spring for responsive, synth-style parts.
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 61es either. And as an added bonus, the Keystation 61es gives you a single programmable slider for controlling your virtual instruments' volume, and a pair of programmable buttons. Plus, the Keystation 61es gets its power from the same USB port it sends MIDI over, so there's no fumbling around with a power supply either.
