88 synth-action keys

This makes the Keystation 88 a great choice for players who like a light touch when playing virtual instruments. Its compact size makes the Keystation 88 perfect for use at a computer workstation or taking on the road!
Pitch, modulation and other control sources
To the left of the Keystation 61es 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. Add that to a dedicated set of transport controls and directional keys (so you don't need to use a mouse) and you've got a complete system that's perfect for minimal setups.
USB power for convenience
The M-Audio Keystation 88 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! No more hunting for an extra outlet to set up your rig!
