    Stage Right 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.

    Can anyone suggest what power adapter to use with this. will monoprice guitar pedal adapters work?
    Steven T on Jan 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You could run this controller on a "standard" pedal power supply and a pigtail to reverse the polarity and adapt the 2.1mm ("standard", as used by all Boss pedals and almost every other brand except Digitech and Line6) to 2.5mm. There are several OneSpot pedalboard kits that come with a pigtail for doing exactly that. Look for "Line6 DL4" for another example of the same issue. Also, certain M-Audio keyboards and MIDI controllers have exactly the same situation (and I suspect that these Monoprice units may have common manufacturing origins with M-Audio, if that isn't taboo to point out.)

    I wonder what it's doing that would make it draw a full amp. On USB 2.0 power it's going to be using *at most* 5v at 500mA, and it would be very surprising if a control surface like this really needed much of that 500mA. In any case OneSpot adapters are 1700mA, and the only pedals that really draw much from a pedalboard adapter are the ones with amplifiers and active digital processing.
    Why does this have a power input? Does it require an A/C adapter?

    BEST ANSWER: I believe it's so the keyboard can be connected through the midi port which does not provide power, otherwise it's connected to and powered by the USB port.
    What are the measurements on this keyboard (length x width) ? I don't see the size specs listed in the manual.

    Surprising quality & features
    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!).

    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).

    Unexpected Deal !
    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

    PROS: Quick shipping, plug and play

    CONS: Nothing yet

    Good touch responsiveness
    I just received this today so I can't speak for the longevity of the keyboard but I'm pleasantly surprised by the touch sensitivity of the keys.

    I connected it to my Macbook Pro running Sierra 12.23 and it wasn't registering on the computer in my DAW or in Apple's Midi devices utility. I tried restarting the programs, reconnecting the unit and, powering it on and off. I'm not sure what fixed it but it was up and running in about 5 minutes. I haven't tried setting up the other buttons but the octave keys/pitch bend worked out of the box.

    Good overall
    Good for the price but does feel a little cheap. The knobs are alright and the two banks makes it nice to be able to have 8 knobs but only 4 usable at a time.

    Lotsa bang for the buck
    Great midi input device. Does everything I expected from a small, affordable keyboard controller. Keybed is not spectacular, but at this pricepoint, it's hard to complain. Good, useful purchase for my needs.
