M-audio 61es Review: Thinking on Buying the Keystation 61 es? Read this first.

The M-Audio Keystation 61es USB MIDI Keyboard Controller Review

The M-Audio Keystation 61es USB MIDI Keyboard Controller is a really great Keyboard.

If the 88es is too big for your studio or home, this one is a great choice.

The keys of the M-Audio 61es are velocity-sensitive and semi-weighted. This is the perfect intersection between the feeling of playing electronic music and classical music. The spring and velocity-sensitive is good enough for easy playing, and gives you enough room for expressing your feelings in performance.

And what I like the most, it is really portable. It only weights 11 lbs (5 kg) and you can power the Keystation 61es with just your USB cable and your laptop, PC or MAC (but you can still buy the 9VDC power adapter, if you want).

Buy it right now in Amazon, if you are ready, you can save US$55!

Take a look of the features:

  • 61-note velocity-sensitive, semi-weighted action
  • Pitch bend and modulation wheels
  • Volume/assignable control slider: you can use this slider to control de volume (default) or assign it to something else.
  • Advanced function button for programming.
  • Sustain pedal input (pedal sold separately).
  • Assignable data up/down buttons: It defaults to octave changing.
  • Built-in USB MIDI interface
  • MIDI out jack routes MIDI signals from keyboard or computer to external devices.

This keyboard had a great feel to it, once you get used to the slight springyness of the keys (as compared to a piano). Setup was incredibly easy, just plug it in and turn it on, USB powered. Works with Garage Band and Logic Pro.
