M-Audio Keystation 61es

I bought this keyboard controller about 2 weeks ago and I\'ve tried with garage band with very good results - to be honest I was able to create a song in less than 5 minutes.
The keystation is simple to use and does everything it is suppose to do. You just need to pick any music software like Abbleton, sonar or Reason plus your creativity to keep you playing for hours.
OR if you\'ve got, like me, an Apple Mac with garage band installed is plug and play all the way.

M-Audio Keystation 61-ES

I do not know a lot about keyboards, but when I searched around the website, this keyboard was the perfect choice for me. When it arrived 24 hours later in the quickest delivery I have ever experienced (and by the way, thank you to dolphin music for it!!), it was better than I had expected, quick and easy to use, no problems what so ever!! I would recommend this keyboard to anyone with little or advanced experience in MIDI keyboards!!

Thank you M-Audio and Dolphin Music!!

Awesome, well worth the extra

Well, obviously you only buy this product to use to trigger synths etc, so really I can only review this on 2 levels - does it work, and is the extra £60 spent on getting the semi-weighted version worth it?

Well, it definitely works, and having used the unweighted version I would say to anyone who wants to use it as a keyboard and not just as a trigger to save your pennies and get this one. The weighting of the keyboard is quite simply excellent, and I'm so glad I took the risk - the overall feel is a mile away from the plasticy unweighted version - it really allows you to communicate with the lines you are playing so much better, which makes it a lot more fun.

It's arguably a lot of money for such a "simple" device, but combined with Reason or the likes, is the equivalent of many £1000s worth of keyboards - so £60 extra on the interface you use when it's this good is an easy decision to make in my eyes.
