Compact, affordable and intuitive in every sense – many consider the Keystation series among M-Audio’s flagship products. Now these hugely popular keyboard controllers have taken another evolutionary step, building on the MkII’s winning formula.

Simple & Compact

The Keystation Mini 61 Mk3 is the perfect accompaniment to your stripped-down music production rig. Whether you’re always on the go, or you’re stuck for studio space, thing unit is lightweight and compact compared to some of its 49-key counterparts.

M-Audio have a knack for keeping it simple – it’s one of the reasons they’re such a popular brand. The 49 Mk3 is no exception, with an easy-on-the-eyes design, 61 low-profile keys, a basic selection of controls and connections, USB connectivity – minimal hassle, maximum practicality!

Deceptively Intuitive

An intuitive interface conceals a great selection of features for pro-grade music production. Don’t be deceived by its simplicity – this thing’s got plenty on offer.

The keys are velocity-sensitive, so your music remains expressive and human – they’ve even provided a tweakable velocity curve feature to suit your own style. Volume, pitch bend, modulation and sustain controls give you even more room for articulation. You can even adjust the MIDI settings to map your controls in whatever way you see fit – with this many features, you can’t really go wrong with such a small, affordable unit.

The directional/transport buttons and additional controls are all ergonomically designed to ensure ease of use. Top if off with excellent integration with popular DAWs and plug-and-play compatibility (no drivers required), and you've got an affordable controller workhorse that'll suit any setup or stage!
