PS: for all those that's not familiar with a midi controller, here's a little info, midi-controllers are not keyboard, they do not produce sound on their own, it is like a game controller, it only works when you plug it into a game console then it controls the characters inside the game, same as a midi-controller, it functions by plugging it into a computer and it controls virtual instruments inside a daw system(such as garageband if you use mac, there are LOTS of different daw system you can choose, and millions of virtual instrument presets, which M-audio provides you with 1 daw system for pc-ableton live, and 2 virtual instrument present-Xpand and Sonivox so you don't have to go out and buy your own right off the bat since they can get costly), you can't connect a speaker to this directly, just like how you can't connect a speaker to a game controller, everything goes into and out of your computer, so that's just some basic infos regarding midi-controller, hopefully it answers some of you guys confusion about what exactly key station 88 is and do.
In my case, I was looking for this for a long time. I have an oldie but goldie Yamaha SW1000XG with a PLG-150DX attached to a Yamaha DS2416 in a Magma PCI to ExpressCard interface setup. This is a retro-90s type of setup but I love the sounds. Well, my child started piano lessons and the good pianos are not less than $700 and beyond. So it seemed pretty obvious to buy a MIDI controller keyboard and put it to work with my PC-hardware-based synths. Now my son can practice his piano lessons AND, as a bonus, I get to play and teach him a little bit of MIDI and multi-track recording. The product is not bad quality, the keys respond very well to velocity, and the semi-weighted effect does not feel cheap, although is not the feel you would have in a more expensive piano. I will update this review for others to read about my experience but, unlike others that said very negative things about this product, it seems that it will not disappoint. Just make sure you understand that this is a MIDI controller and you need software and hardware to use it and enjoy its features.
Why would you want this instead of a synthesizer keyboard? Because you already have a computer with DAW software and VST synthesizer plugins that costs $8K, and all you need out of the keyboard is to be able to key in notes, melodies, chords and let the rest of your setup handle the rest.
I would suspect many that give this item poor reviews were expecting a synthesizer, or did not have the computer setup to handle the rest. Whatever software comes with this I am sure is mediocre, and is simply intended to provide something to use if you don't have Kontact, Sonar, ProTools, etc. jam packed with VST instruments. There is a reason good DAW software costs hundreds of dollars.
As far as how this device handles its task of midi input -- very good. The weight of the keys is perfect, the touch sensitivity is very good, and you should have no problems creating MIDI tracks that convey emotion and musicality.
I wanted to update this review today after having a few weeks to use the keyboard. There is room for improvement with how this keyboard senses the speed/force of the key being depressed. There is not much dynamic range in this regard. Slow/soft key presses register extremely soft (and sometimes not at all), and fast/hard keypresses register as full volume. There is not much in between those extremes.
I was debating the full 88 key version of this, but I'm certainly glad I didn't because the 49 key is a pretty big dude. It's almost as wide as my entire desk. It's got enough keys to not have to jump an octave on any of the drum kits, which was my main goal.
Pro tip: The Rain Design mStand Laptop Stand, Silver (Patented) is fantastic and study and will hold your laptop directly above it as pictured.
