    Here's what M-Audio Say About the Hammer 88

    This One’s For The Player

    Introducing Hammer 88, a premium, no-compromise keyboard controller, ideal for professional, semi-pro players or students seeking the realistic grand piano feel to use with virtual instruments or sound modules. At the heart of Hammer 88 are 88 velocity-sensitive, fully-weighted hammer-action keys that are guaranteed to faithfully capture every subtle nuance of your performance, while providing the unmatched response of a traditional grand piano—classic feel fused with the unrivalled sonic capabilities of virtual instruments. It’s the perfect combination for performers and producers to experience their plugin collection like never before.

    Expressive

    Put expression center-stage with Hammer 88, thanks to a core range of controls, thoughtfully positioned to complement and enhance your performance. With a unity-locking pitch wheel and a separate modulation wheel, add portamento and glissando effects, or map the Mod-Wheel to any assignable parameter in your virtual instrument collection to reshape and evolve your sound on the fly. With the dedicated Master Volume Fader, you can instantly control the intensity of your performance or MIDI map this to any compatible parameter in your DAW or virtual instrument collection for expanded, hands-on control. Use the assignable Up and Down buttons to select different programs, effects, MMC messages, jump between octaves and more. Add some pedal-based performance articulation using the three dedicated inputs for Sustain, Expression and Soft. With Hammer 88’s performance-centric feature-set, expressing yourself has never been so easy!

With Hammer 88, it’s easy get the most out of your external sound generators. This is a controller designed from the ground up to place you firmly in the driver’s seat.

    Seamless Integration

    An instrument shouldn’t limit your creativity, it should enhance it! Hammer 88 is USB-powered, class-compliant and supports USB-MIDI connectivity for rapid, hassle-free setup that lets you focus on what’s important—your performance.

    The website failed my order the first time. Make it over the phone. Spent the next 2 weeks trying to prevent you from double charging me via PayPal while being bombarded with misinformation from incompetent staff. Will never use again.

    Mr John Dewi Evans15th Feb 2021

    Absolute bargain for the price - very well constructed (lots of metal) and a nice, minimal design. I was a bit unsure about the feel at first (compared to my Nord Stage 2EX 76HP) but I’m slowly getting used to it. Another big plus point is that it includes a music stand - Nord could learn from this! Free software included too - I’ve only investigated the piano so far. It didn’t really float my boat compared to the fab Nord pianos, but at least it was free.
