GarageBand

 

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.

M-AUDIO Keystation 49e

 

Although the volume control for the unit is still a little quiet for my taste on my Mac, I have my audio going through a separate amp now so no biggie. This is a great MIDI trigger for use in GarageBand and/or Logic. Since all processing is done on the...
