    Product Description

    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!

    Exactly what I was looking for. Worked straight out of the box with Logic Pro. Good action on the keyboard, inexpensive and robust enough for a home studio environment

    Absolutely plug and play exactly as described. No drivers or hassle using it with an iMac. Just plug it it to the USB port on the iMac which found it straight away and linked it automatically to Garageband and Logic Pro X Great piece of kit.

    Matthew Harpham25th Sep 2020

    A really good MIDI keyboard for the money, for pianists. The features are of course fairly basic, it's just a MIDI controller after all. But the touch is lovely, certainly for the price. Of course it's not a piano, nor a weighted keyboard, but playing it is a joy, certainly against most bog standard controllers. 5 octaves of pleasure!

    I would recommend the 61 key version of M-Audio Keystation MK3. The keys are well weighted and the product is solidly made.
