The KeyStudio 49i delivers everything you need to start making and recording music today. It’s the first USB keyboard controller with a built-in audio interface and premium piano sound. Play the on-board piano as a stand-alone instrument—then plug the USB cable into your computer to play a total of 128 sounds and listen to them from the keyboard’s audio outputs. The built-in interface even lets you record vocals and instruments as well as listen to your sessions and mixes. The included Ableton Live Lite software seals the deal by providing an incredibly easy-to-use music production solution. The KeyStudio 49i instantly transforms your computer into a versatile music studio
The KeyStudio 49i is built around the same great 49-note keyboard as our Keystation 49e—the best-selling keyboard controller on the planet. It also features a built-in, stereo-sampled Steinway grand piano from the expert software instrument designers at Digidesign’s Advanced Instrument Research group. The piano even has reverb for enhanced realism. No muss, no fuss, no computer required. Just turn it on and play.
KeyStudio 49i sports an on-board 2-in, 2-out audio interface with CD audio quality. That means that you can listen to everything—built-in piano, software instruments and recorded tracks—right from the KeyStudio 49i audio outs or headphone jacks. Connect instruments and microphones to the audio inputs and record vocals, guitar and just about anything else—or even jam along with a CD. The built-in mini-mixer lets you find just the right balance. The audio interface is even compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered, delivering seamless integration with industry-standard music production software.
