    Considered Design 

    The bedrock of the Keystation 88 is the set of 88 full-size velocity-sensitive keys. These provide a natural feel and improved expression that's augmented by a set of controls which increase the range of playable notes available. 

    Simple Workflow 

    Your sessions are made fun and more efficient thanks to a series of hands-on functions. From pitch-bend and modulation wheels, to a volume slider, fully assignable octave range buttons, and transport and directional controls, you've got a tonne of options available right at your fingertips.  

    DAW Delight 

    Integrating a controller with your preferred DAW has never been so easy. The onboard USB-MIDI connectivity and USB-power ensures the Keystation 88 will slot seamlessly into your production setup. You won't even need to use a trackpad or mouse while you're using your music software either; record, play and stop controls, as well as handy directional buttons make the recording process effortless - ensuring you have everything you could possibly need in one compact unit. 

    Speaking of DAW's, unique pieces of software come bundled with the Keystation 88 for you to experiment with. Use Ableton Lite to record, compose, remix, edit and create on-the-fly in an integrated audio/MIDI system. 

    That's not all though; MPC Beats completes the package. This boasts some of the best parts and sounds of the iconic range of MPC's, allowing you to mix down tracks, record audio, edit samples and create dynamic and layered beats right out of the box! MPC Beats is further bolstered by the inclusion of a series of MPC expansion packs too. These encompass crisp, snappy snares, powerful kicks and much more, ensuring your rhythm tracks get the quality and attention to detail they deserve.     

    Sleek & Streamlined 

    A lightweight and slim build makes this the perfect portable production and performance solution. If you're regularly out on the road and are searching high and low for an effective MIDI controller, or want to harness music software in a live scenario, then this is an ideal bit of kit.  

    Practice, Practice, Practice 

    You'll be able to develop your playing using the 40 free lessons from Melodics and the specially developed programs from Skoove. Skoove offers 100+ lessons for you to get stuck into, with an interactive, hands-on approach which benefits beginners, intermediates and experts alike. You'll receive feedback in real-time too, aiding your development and helping to improve your skills much faster. 

    Melodics uses a user-friendly interface, backed up by challenges customised for you, adaptive learning techniques, and motivational systems to keep you engaged and on-track. This not only benefits your playing - you'll be finding out more about the nuances of your controller too!

    Locked & Loaded

These span from Boom (old-school drum sounds) and Velvet (vintage e-piano tones), to Vacuum (tube-powered sounds) and Mini Grand (an accurately modelled piano).
