Nothing is missing if you take into account that the 49e is supposed to be a 49 key midi keyboard. They are advertised as semi weighted I believe but they don’t feel like it.

I was starting up a studio and needed a good USB keyboard to play instruments. I never opened the manual. Its pretty plasticy but it feels good and for the price i can not complain! No need for a manual since this thing is literally a piano and nothing more.

I will make this choice without hesitation. Yes I understand that this is a very cheap and budget unit, but you would think that for what we lose in features, we could get some good keys. I like the configuration of keystarion controller because it is easy and to the point.
Or some decent keys.

So for me it’s perfect. It works exactly what I use it for and works without problem. Its not supposed to have knobs and sliders so there isnt anything missing. Subscribe to our free newsletter Subscribe. Did you find this review helpful?
I am able to control virtual instruments at ease, providing me with a MIDI work station with vase capabilities. I have used a few other M-audio keyboards like the Axiom series and I must say the key quality and feel on those is much much better. The price was keystatkon so I got one.
That’s exactly the application I bought it for way back when. After several back and see that my little market research this model came out from the crowd!
M-Audio KEYSTATION 49e – Key USB MIDI Controller
They are advertised as semi weighted I believe but they don’t feel like it. I guess it would be nice if there was a velocity selection.
Write a user review. This is a really cheap 49 key board. It’s not like it matters though. The price of the 49e is one of the best parts, as just about anyone can have a great sounding MIDI keyboard rig with this a few virtual instruments at a very reasonable price. Although the 49e keeps it basic, what it lacks in knobs it makes up for in what’s important.
All user reviews for the M-Audio Keystation 49e
I have no complaints about this products durability. The power of the machine can be done via USB or via a transformer not supplied. This one has none. I suppose though if you are a beginner and you don’t care about the feel, this is a fine studio unit. I also have an M-Audio Oxygen 8 and while that keystatiin more parameters, I prefer having the extra keys on the 49e and the parameters on the Oxygen 8 really just makes things from confusing in my opinion.
I had used some keyboards with fewer keys.
