A Versatile and Affordable MIDI ControllerThe M-Audio KeyRig 49 USB MIDI controller gives you the playability and value you want, plus the functionality you need to make the most out of your computer-based production, notation, and virtual instrument applications. Whether you're composing, performing, or creating music, the KeyRig 49 gives you great control surface functions for great results. This 49-key controller includes an assignable mod wheel, volume slider, and octave buttons, and it includes M-Audio KeyRig and Ableton Live Lite software. If you're looking for a versatile, affordable controller, the KeyRig 49 is made to fit the bill!
With its 49 synth-action key, MIDI over USB computer interface, and an award-winning software bundle, the KeyRig 49 lets you start composing and performing music with any Mac or Windows PC computer right out of the box. This lightweight, low-profile controller offers you professional features such as pitch and mod wheels, an assignable volume slider, octave +/- buttons and sustain pedal input.
M-Audio's KeyRig software turns your controller into a very versatile multi-instrument! You get four great "modules" that range from classic to up-to-the-minute modern. The SP-1 Stage Piano module gives you grand pianos, Wurlitzer, classic electric pianos, FM, clavinet and more, while the MB-3 Tone Wheel Organ authentically emulates the classic Hammond sound, complete with rotary speaker. The GM-4 General MIDI Module adds another 128 GM instruments plus a great GM drum kit to your virtual instrument library. The MS-2 Polyphonic Synthesizer delivers a new, easy way to call up and edit great synth sounds.
Each KeyRig module features its own dual effects processors for delay, chorus, phaser. You also get a master effects section and an internal mixer and assignment controls that allow you configure independent MIDI channels for each module. KeyRig software's compatibility with AU, VST and RTAS also means that you can use its instruments as sound sources for your tracks in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Ableton Live, and, well, pretty much any popular music software, and it even comes with a copy of Ableton Live Lite! But that's not all; you can easily create splits and layers for things like left-hand bass with right-hand keys, piano/string layers and any other combination you can think of, making the KeyRig 49 a great tool both for composing music and for playing it onstage.
