Product Description

Powered by the same technology behind many of today’s greatest hits, Avid® KeyStudio instantly transforms your Mac or PC into a full-featured recording studio. The streamlined combination of Avid hardware and software—the 49-note, velocity-sensitive M-Audio® KeyStudio keyboard and Pro Tools® SE music creation application—makes it easy to turn your inspiration into a professional-quality song. Just connect the keyboard to your computer, fire up the software, choose from over 100 different instrument sounds, and start playing. You can build out your composition with loops from the huge included library, then add effects, polish your tracks, and share them with the world.

With integrated learning and creation tools, Pro Tools® SE makes it easy to start creating all styles of music—from hip-hop and electronic, to pop, funk, jazz, rock, and blues. There's a wide array of music creation templates and a huge (3 GB!) audio loop library so you can play along with drum grooves or add your own percussion, bass and instrument lines.

Professional 49-note keyboard

Whether you're just getting started or playing professionally, one touch will tell you that the 49-note KeyStudio keyboard is a pleasure to play. That's because the KeyStudio is built with the same M-Audio® technology used by music professionals on stage and in studios around the world.

Effects galore

Pro Tools SE turns your computer into a full-featured recording studio, complete with powerful effects to mix your tracks together. Make professional-sounding mixes by applying reverb, delay, EQ, compression, chorus, flanger, and many others.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love music but unfortunately lack much -- or rather, any -- talent when it comes to playing an instrument. But, to the dismay of those in my household, I've never let lack of talent stand in the way of having fun trying to coax a tune out of a variety of instruments.

This is an absolute blast! I've not played with an electronic keyboard for several years, and was absolutely amazed at the capabilities of this keyboard given the price. The wealth of tools and capabilities offered by the software is incredible - all sorts of templates, options and effects are available. As I understand it (and this may be incorrect), the software that comes with the keyboard is a "mini" version of a more extensive software package offered by Avid. I've been using this for several days, and feel like I'm only scratching the surface of the software capabilities, so I doubt I'll ever outgrow it, even if this is the "mini" version.

The instructional materials are nicely done. Although the size of the tool box offered is deep, you can also just jump in (as I did) and start playing after running a short tutorial. Really learning all the options, and going through all the tutorials and lessons requires some time commitment.

Installation was straightforward. I'm using it on an older laptop running Windows XP. The performance is fine, but this clearly would benefit from a more up-to-date and faster PC. But it's very workable even on an older system.

The keyboard itself is better than I expected at this price point. All plastic, but it seems reasonably sturdy. I don't think it would stand up to being pounded at constantly, but it feels as if it will easily stand up to a decent amount of use. The key feel is very different from a real piano.

Verified Purchase
This keyboard works very well for me. I use it for playing around, composing original music for home movies and teaching my kids to play. It works well with GarageBand, and plugs into an iPad (with the usb camera adapter) for a great portable GarageBand experience.

Pros:
-Most importantly, it sounds really good.
-It comes with an extensive array of musical instruments.
-It is light and portable.
-It is inexpensive.

Cons:
-Requires a dongle for connecting speakers and microphone. Not a big deal, but why?
-Key pressure sensitivity could be better, but it's easy to adjust to this. Don't expect a Gershwin Baby Grand experience for this price.

I expect to get many years of service from this general purpose but quality oriented instrument.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Many will recognize Avid as being a respected name in the computer software market. Their Studio software is of the most intuitive and easy to use video editing packages I have ever experienced. So when Avid packaged together the M-Audio 49-key USB keyboard, along with Pro Tools audio software, I just had to give this system a test drive.

Please keep in mind, I am not a professional musician. I have played the keyboard for years, but I am not a performer, and only play for my own pleasure and relaxation. I have been using PC audio recording software for many years, and Pro Tools is a name I am very familiar with.

The Avid KeyStudio kit comes with the M-Audio KeyStudio 49-note keyboard, which is essentially a touch-sensitive, 4-octave, USB controller. The keys feel a bit mushy at first, but I was able to get used to them pretty quickly. There is a volume control slider, octave and transpose buttons, and both pitch bend and modulation wheels on the left side of the note keys. The back of the device is pretty bare; with only the USB jack, a sustain pedal input, and power input socket. There are also holes in the top of the keyboard, above the note keys, for adding a wire-framed music stand. Of course this stand is optional and sold separately.

The included Pro Tools software is the SE version, which basically means it is a stripped down, lite version of the well-known, professional quality audio production and recording software that is used by many musicians today. Now the buyer should know that the full-featured Pro Tools software package costs hundreds of dollars on its own, without any USB keyboard controller.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been looking for some time for a nice keyboard to work with my computer. I have a 9yo disabled son with language processing issues, but a great ear for music. I have high hopes of being able to help him overcome his language obstacles, as well as develop his musical talent using the Avid KeyStudio. And of course, my karaoke-loving daughters will now have a new medium to express themselves and the opportunity to create and share music on a whole new level.

I was really pleased at how big and substantial this thing is. This is not your kids' rinky-dink keyboard, but a hearty toy for big boys. With 46 full-size keys, this piece of equipment is ready for anything. I mean, think about it: with only 10 fingers (or even with another artist playing duet...) do you really need the other 42 of a standard keyboard when you can digitally modify the octave, tone and instrumentation?

Most middle class homes now have computers, while fewer and fewer have pianos. Too expensive, too hard to fit in a compact space, too hard to move around, etc., etc., etc. When I consider the power and potential behind this for a budding artist to compose and develop their own art, I get almost giddy. I think we're seeing the beginning of a revolution in composition, for the price of a keyboard. How can any conscientious and involved parent afford to be without one? Skip the video games and buy your kids an Avid KeyStudio.
