    49-Key MIDI Keyboard Controller - Black

    Control your PC music software and/or MIDI sound modules and sequencers using this 49-key MIDI Keyboard Controller from Monoprice!

    This 4-octave, velocity sensitive MIDI keyboard controller features a USB port, which allows you to connect to a computer for use with your favorite music creation software or with software synthesizers or sequencers. It also includes a 5-pin MIDI DIN output, for connecting directly to sound modules or sequencers.

    This powerful controller allows you to map almost any function to almost any button, knob, slider, or wheel. Built-in functions include the ability to quickly adjust the octave range up or down, or to transpose the keys for easier pitch changes. Two pedal jacks allow you to connect both sustain and expression pedals for additional functionality.

    This is a true, driverless plug and play device for use with Windows and Mac PCs or as a standalone MIDI controller.

    Features:

    • 49 Velocity sensitive keys to trigger your MIDI hardware & software
    • 4 Rotary encoder knobs
    • 1 Slider
    • Pitch-bend & Modulation wheels
    • MIDI Out port for standalone use
    • 2 Assignable pedal inputs
    • Driverless plug and play for Windows and Mac PCs
    • Powered from the USB bus or using an optional 9 VDC power adapter (not included)

    Note that this controller does not have any internal sound generation capability. It requires the use of external sound modules, software synthesizers, or hardware or software sequencers.

    Surprising quality & features

    Pros: - WAY more features than I expected.
    - Fantastic price.
    - Highly configurable.
    - It just works! Plug and play on both USB and old-school MIDI jack with no drivers.

    Cons: - A few lower keys won't report 100% velocity no matter how hard/fast you hit them. Most are perfect, though.
    - Doesn't come with the A/C adapter (only needed if you are using the old-school MIDI jack).

    Fair warning: I am not a musician, I am an electrical engineer. I bought this keyboard to control a set of chimes (tubular bells) I am building for a friend, so I just needed something basic. I was expecting just the basics, too. But boy was I in for a pleasant surprise!

    Naturally, all the basic functions work exactly as you'd expect. But this model has a number of extra dials and sliders, ALL of which are remappable! The default settings are quite reasonable, but being able to remap them to anything you want is really convenient, and unexpected at this price point.

    From a more technical perspective, it adheres to the MIDI spec perfectly, and implements a number of optional features I didn't expect. Changing programs and channels is easy once you figure out which knob does what (or remap them to what makes sense to you!).

    Unexpected Deal !

    Pros: Quick shipping, plug and play

    Cons: Nothing yet

    Need a MIDI, so my friend recommended this site, saying they have great deals almost too good to be true. Found this one and my friend said it was a killer deal. So, since this is my introduction to the world of MIDI, I decided to give it a shot.

    So I ordered it, came within 1 business day, plugged it in to my program (Sonar X3) and of I went ! So far so good ! Works awesome with no hang ups. Love the octave function, it really lets you open up the board especially working on a piano function
