A quality keyboard controller

Pitch, modulation and other control sources
To the left of the M-Audio Keystation 88ES Keyboard Controller keyboard are a pitch and a modulation wheel for control of these essential synth and MIDI parameters. The volume slider offers a bonus - it can be assigned to control any other MIDI value! Use it to add expression or perform a filter sweep while you record a sequence. In addition, two advanced function buttons can be used to assign other MIDI messages.

USB power for convenience
The M-Audio Keystation 88ES Keyboard Controller runs on USB bus power when connected to your computer. That means you don't need anything but a USB cable for both power and MIDI transmission! For standalone use, an optional 9 volt DC power adapter is available.

Flexible enough to use as a standalone controller!
You don't need to limit the M-Audio Keystation 88ES Keyboard Controller to computer use. Its MIDI Out port means you can use it onstage to control rackmount synth modules or other gear. All you need is the optional 9 volt DC power adapter!
