This keyboard has a lot going for it -- a simple setup, a decent feel, and an attractive price. Unless you require a keyboard that makes sound on its own, has a full set of keys, or boasts a horde of knobs and faders, the Keystation 49e is a good value

Easy setup ; attractive price

Pianists may feel hampered by small keyboard ; no sustain pedal included

Good produce

 

Had some problems in the beginning when no sound was output. Turned out it was my USB that was the problem, nothing against the keyboard.

Works well, velocity driven sound volume, good feel to the keyboard. Good beginning product to learn the keyboard. Will definitely consider getting the full 88 keys board once I get better with it

Software that comes with it I can't figure out, so I use eMedia instead

Integrated volume control at maximum still a little quiet on my Mac.

Great Simple Keyboard

 

Does a terrific job as a MIDI keyboard.

Software more confusing than simpler programs like Apple's garage band.

Vista Not Ready?

 

the windows vista drivers from the site havent seemed to work.

Consumer review by:

Greay keyboard for the price.

 

To the person complaining about lead. A lot of products have this disclaimer, and almost always it is the power cable, or some other trivial device that contains lead. No one will die licking their hands after touching the device that has the lead. But...

Good keyboard for the price. Pitch bend and modular knobs rock. The 2 buttons for octaves are nice. Works flawlessly with windows XP and Reason 3.0

The third button does something, not sure what. I used to know, but haven't looked it up in the user manual. The fact that I can't look at the keyboard and tell right away is a bit of a con ; Drivers: I have noticed it's a bit of a pain getting it...
