Take full command of your DAW with the M-Audio Code 49 MIDI keyboard controller. The Code 49 rocks a buttery 49-note semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch, 16 assignable backlit drum pads, an XY pad, nine faders, and eight rotaries. There's also a six-digit LED display, so you're never in dark, status-wise. Of course, there's a sustain pedal input, but you also get an expression pedal input, so you can filter sweep those massive two-handed chords. Factor in the bundled software and striking Mondrian-esque visuals that'll look great onstage, and you've got a winning package.
The CODE Series is a family of full-features MIDI controllers that combine a remarkably smooth-feeling keyboard with a surprisingly complete feature set to create a keyboard line of professional capability and unexpected value. The Code Series builds upon M-Audio's legacy of innovative workflow and playability. Their comprehensive controls automatically map to popular DAW's such as Ableton Live, Apple GarageBand, Apple Logic, Pro Tools, and Steinberg Cubase, so artists can easily convert their creativity into immediate, tangible results.
This keyboard feels incredible
The M-Audio Code 49's semi-weighted keybed is first-class; professional all the way. Designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral, these keys communicate musical expression to your DAW with an efficacy you never thought possible. That's always been the challenge with MIDI and computer-based music creation - and the Code 49 attacks it head-on. Of course, no pro keyboard controller is complete without aftertouch, and the Code 49 has it. So go ahead and lean into the last note of that smokin' lead line and give it some tasty vibrato.
Enjoy complete control
In addition to the superb keyboard, the M-Audio Code 49's multi-function, backlit drum pads let you roll beats, warp arpeggios, launch clips in Ableton, and curb the potential for mayhem that lurks beneath the surface of every complex DAW setup. Code 49's controls offer Mackie Control and HUI modes, and the buttons are assignable to macro ASCII commands, letting you use your favorite DAW macros at the push of a button. And you can mix and match modes - the XY pad, for instance, can concurrently run Mackie Control on one axis, and HUI on the other! With immediate access to your DAW's transport, mixer, and plug-ins, you'll enjoy increased productivity and focus, resulting in better music. And that's something we can all get behind.
