The playing feel is heavier than a synth but not too heavy, which means you can reach the highest velocity level without having to hammer on the keys.

I’ll give it a 9 since the faders aren’t motorized like I hoped. The Midi controls are very convenient and easy to use.

If you’re looking for a real piano kfystation, buy another instrument. As for channel and patch selection, that is also something you have to assign with a program, at least thats how I did it I use mainstage, and if you are a mac user, so should you because it rocks!!!
What I don’t like about it is I have noticed some poor craftsmanship. It is very difficult to make a soft sound it tends to make things sound harder than you hit it. The characteristics that motivated my choice were the 88 weighted keys and the price.

Did you find this review helpful? Works well with Digital Performat 4. It’s really easy to make your own templates too. I have used some of the other, smaller, M-Audio MIDI keyboard controllers, but this one takes the cake by far, as it is the most complete and has a great feeling keyboard.
The only cons are: The M Audio KeyStation Pro 88 is a full midi keyboard with midi out and midi in with all of the octaves of a real piano. Its kind of like an in between of the two different types of keys. I also use other hardware.

I haven’t had any problems yet. When I first saw this I thought it would be much more expensive than it is, as it is quite reasonably priced. But I bought a demo device and I’m expecting to get a new one. Seems pretty damn solid to me. Also, the amount of programable buttons and faders certainly helped me decide on this unit.

The keyboard is also amazingly light when you take into account that the keys are semi-weighted. The keyboard seems well built.
You wont be able to do those quick sliding melodies and synth lines with this board because the pfo are too heavy. Sort by most recent most useful. Originally posted on FutureProducers.
Also, the some of the keys do that sticky thing as well as some make squeaky noises.

Now I don’t mean sticky like there is keywtation in them, I mean there is a little extra resistance when you first hit the key. The Midi controls are very convenient and easy to use.
My opinion of the value is a good one. The playing feel is heavier than a synth but not too heavy, which means you can reach the highest velocity level without having to hammer on the keys. I also have M-audio’s Axiom 61 much better in the way of craftsmanship but doesn’t have the weighted keys and I also used to own a Korg TR The features are good.
