MIDI keyboards

A good MIDI keyboard is the best way to play and record instruments like soft synths, plugins and samplers. There are MIDI keyboards to suit everything from home studio use to mobile music-making, live performance or even serious piano practice. The basics are simple and easy: even the most affordable entry-level keyboard should offer good quality keys, which are almost always velocity-sensitive, and either USB or DIN output to connect to computers, mobile devices and MIDI hardware. More professional MIDI keyboards offer advanced features like weighted keys, aftertouch, drum pads, assignable rotary controls and faders, plus the ability to map to any software or MIDI hardware. Most MIDI controller keyboards also include bundled software such as a DAW (digital audio workstation software) and virtual instruments, allowing you to get started making music quickly and easily.

The new MPK Mini Plus builds on that innovation by empowering musicians with full creative control that delivers ultimate feel and expression, along with next generation performance tools. Advanced connectivity easily and fully unites all your favourite studio devices for complete and expanded hardware integration in a compact 3-octave design.

Full Portable Creative Control

While maintaining its compact footprint, MPK Mini Plus offers extensive controls providing deep command over a wide range of features. 8 velocity-sensitive RGB-backlit MPC drum pads are the backbone for not only playing dynamic beats and programming drums, but for also assigning pro-gram changes and triggering additional CC parameters.

Ultimate Feel and Expression

As with all MPK Mini controllers, performance starts with the keys. MPK Mini Plus features 37 keys with the Gen 2 Dynamic Keybed for expanded melodic and harmonic creation. 3 full octaves mean more room for two-handed chords, arpeggiation, and laying down solos or soundscapes. The Gen 2 Dynamic Keybed features incredibly playable keys with a wider velocity range, delivering a world-class level of note dynamics and response. With more keys, your music will need new ways to add feel and expression, so the MPK Mini Plus adds dedicated Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheel controllers to help all keyboard performances truly come alive. Alongside the iconic Joystick Controller, there's no shortage of tactile interaction for near limitless expression.

Advanced Connectivity and Standalone Operation

For those spontaneous creative moments or quick jams sessions, MPK Mini Plus can operate with standalone functionality. The new polyphonic Step Sequencer is convenient for capturing new ideas on the fly. Record notes and drum patterns simultaneously for some serious standalone music creation. Connect to any Class-Compliant USB or 5-pin MIDI device and use the CV/Gate connectors to plug into your rack and other modular synths. The MPK Mini Plus is versatile enough for the serious beginner looking to grow their creative space, and also for those seasoned pros who want to get the most out of their studio gear.

Includes MPC Beats DAW for Mac and PC

The bundled MPC Beats software DAW for Mac and PC offers the iconic MPC workflow right on a desktop or laptop computer, and also includes thousands of sounds, drum samples, loops, and plugin instruments to create your next hit song. With more keys on the 37-note Gen 2 Keybed, MPC plugin instruments like Electric and Tubesynth will come alive with extended sonic range. Set the MPK Mini Plus on a desktop and connect with standalone MPC devices to control Mellotron and Hype plugins.

Even with 3 octaves, MPK Mini Plus will fit in your gig bag to easily transport alongside everyday music production items. It's simple math; adding MPK Mini Plus to any workflow equals expressive creativity and intuitive control for modern music creation and beat making.

Arturia KeyStep 32-Key USB MIDI Keyboard Controller & Step Sequencer (white)
Cat: 598836 Rel: 26 Jul 16
 
Slimkey controller keyboard & sequencer with velocity and aftertouch
Notes: KeyStep is a new breed of portable musical tool combining the functionalities of a keyboard controller with a polyphonic step sequencer to control both analog and digital devices.

You need a portable USB MIDI controller but also want a keyboard that provides a musical playing experience? You have some MIDI modules you want to connect as well but don't want the footprint of a large keyboard? You have modular and analog gear you want to control via CV/GATEs? You want a step sequencer with polyphonic capability that can sync to your favourite modern and vintage gear? If only a single piece of gear could do all of this...

It's the touch...
The KeyStep controller does all this and more.
We started by designing our own "slim key" keyboard action, balancing the best features of compact mini-keys with the musicality of full-sized keys into this new keybed. The size, velocity and aftertouch of this new design provide the freedom of portability without sacrificing playability.

We also designed a new polyphonic step-sequencer with 8 programmable memories that you can recall at the turn of knob. You can choose gate times and swing settings instantly to change the feel of your sequenced performance on the fly. We also included the ability to record, overdub, and transpose your sequences in real time and still play the keyboard live.

Add a flexible and fun arpeggiator mode and chord play mode and you are set for hours of musical adventures.

...and the possibilities
These features alone would make KeyStep the best portable keyboard controller on the market. But we take it further by giving you a wealth of connectivity options: USB MIDI (of course), standard MIDI in and out (check), clock sync and DIN sync jacks (yes!), and CV/GATE outputs, plus a separate, assignable modulation CV output that can be used with the mod wheel, velocity or aftertouch. To say KeyStep is an amazing little controller does not say enough.

Keystep is the perfect performance controller in a compact package.

Adapts to your setup!
KeyStep was imagined and designed to become the modern musician's trump-card.
Whatever your setup, KeyStep will merge into it to overdrive your workflow and effectiveness. With KeyStep and its range of connections you can control any digital or analog synthesizer from the past, today and even tomorrow. Sequence them all!

Buchla LEM218 v3 USB & MIDI Keyboard Controller With Polyphonic Aftertouch
Cat: 980388 Rel: 13 Dec 23
 
29-key USB & MIDI keyboard controller with polyphonic aftertouch
Notes: Buchla's touch-sensitive keyboard updated for the 21st century. Third-generation version offers expressive control for Buchla, MIDI and Eurorack. Iconic.

Supplier's Notes:
Though our lives are dominated by touchscreens, when it comes to music, there's still a lot of magic in capacitive touch control. Don Buchla was one of the first to apply this technology to electronic music in the Buchla 112 module. The non-traditional sounds were controlled with a futuristic interface. This fantastic idea met many iterations in Buchla history: the Music Easel, 400, 700, Thunder, and 223 all employed touch technology.

Buchla USA is proud to present the third iteration of one of the most used touch interfaces, the 218, as the LEM218v3: The 218e version3 Lunar Excursion Module. The first design appeared in the 1973 release of the Buchla Music Easel and named for the spacecraft that delivered astronauts to the moon. Providing the familiar piano key layout for this early mobile music machine, the additional controls and capabilities were an interface for exploring uncharted musical territory. With the new version 3, it's been updated with a new foundation of stable, modern electronics and plenty of inputs and outputs to integrate with your Buchla, MIDI, and Eurorack gear.

Capacitive Magic

The incredible sensitivity and accuracy of the redesigned touch bed means the lightest touch will produce triggers and control voltage for your setup. The adjustable sensor has the dynamic range and durability to handle your playing. The new texture not only improves the sensing, but provides a satisfying tactile experience.

As always, pressure is an expressive output, adding an extra dimension to the control. MIDI outputs velocity and polyphony, as well as channel pressure, making the LEM218 a uniquely expressive controller for all your synthesizers. The configurable touchstrip adds a fantastic addition for pitch bend or as an additional modulator to patch into your system.

MIDI Polyphony, Velocity & More!

More than just MIDI compatible, the LEM 218 v3 gives you a unique interface to playing your existing MIDI gear and soft synths. Each touch outputs note name, channel pressure, and velocity for every note, along with sustain controls from a pedal. Polyphonic MIDI mode lets you play chords. The touchstrip can act as a pitch bend control, or as a mod wheel for additional expressive control. Easily configured using the front panel controls, you can send notes and controls on any MIDI channel. Send the LEM some MIDI, and it gets converted to voltages and gates for eurorack and Buchla control.

Get More For Your Euro

Even if you don't have any Buchla products, the LEM 218 v3 is designed to work with your Eurorack-compatible gear. Four 3.5mm jacks output 1v/octave pitch, 0-8 volts pressure, touchstrip voltage, and gate outputs for use with Eurorack equipment. Or, combine your Euro with your Buchla instruments. If NATO can do it, so can you. The sound design possibilities will blow your mind.

Arpeggiate

A pulse input allows the arpeggiator to be driven by external inputs and are allowed to interact with the automated notes to make the pattern more complex. Additional controls allow you to blend different patterns and randomness to easily change from the expected to the surprising.

Control

The classic preset voltage knobs offer several possible ways to shift your sounds into new territory. Not only can the knobs be used for quick access to voltages for your patch, they can control arpeggiation modes and octave shifting. Pads output pulses for additional control

Set It Up Your Way

Such a unique device will spark many ideas. With easy front panel configuration, you can quickly customize the velocity and pressure sensitivity, MIDI channel, knob behavior, and more. No cumbersome software setups, just simple settings with the keys and knobs, and you're ready to play.

Korg Keystage 49 USB MIDI 2.0 49-Key Polytouch Keyboard Controller
Cat: 978241 Rel: 02 Feb 24
 
A powerful MIDI 2.0 controller keyboard, Keystage offers unparalleled control, Polyphonic Aftertouch, MPE compatibility, and exceptional touch response.
Notes: A powerful MIDI 2.0 controller keyboard, Keystage offers unparalleled control, Polyphonic Aftertouch, MPE compatibility, and exceptional touch response. Enjoy instant OLED visual feedback, a powerful arpeggiator, chord modes, integrated audio outputs, and seamless Ableton Live & Korg Gadget integration. Lightweight & portable, Keystage integrates effortlessly with most modern DAWs and includes a powerful software bundle to amplify your musical journey.

Connect. Create. Perform.

Keystage is a groundbreaking MIDI 2.0 keyboard designed for both producers and stage performers. Pioneering the adoption of MIDI 2.0 Property Exchange, it combines aftertouch with powerful integration and control capabilities.

When inspiration strikes

Eliminate the hassles of lengthy MIDI mapping and missed moments of inspiration. With Keystage, when inspiration hits, your musical visions are captured swiftly and accurately.

As a pioneer in keyboard advancement, Keystage is the first to fully harness the capabilities of MIDI 2.0. Just connect it to compatible software, and watch as Keystage automatically maps parameters, displaying them on its sharp OLED displays. Every display is paired with its unique knob, ensuring you're always informed of the mapped parameters and their precise values.

Expressive creativity

A newly developed semi-weighted keybed provides an immersive playing experience. With polyphonic and channel aftertouch, alongside MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression), you can add depth and feel to your performances without your fingers leaving the keys.

An extraordinarily powerful arpeggiator offers features that go well beyond what any other MIDI Keyboard offers. A vast selection of patterns is complemented with unparalleled customisation options, including aftertouch-triggered ratchets, randomization, gating, and more.

In addition, chord mode benefits from a suite of 32 chord sets that can be used out-of-the-box, or customized and saved into any of the extra 32 user set slots. Each set can have one chord assigned to each note of an octave, and chords can even be replayed in different ways, including a strumming mode for realistic guitar-like playing.

Deep integration

Keystage offers immediate, seamless plug-and-play compatibility with most popular DAWs, giving hands-on control on your most important playback/transport controls.

From launch, Keystage supports: Ableton Live (Official Integration), Korg Gadget (Official Integration), Cakewalk, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Pro Tools and Studio One.

On the road and in the studio

Keystage is not just an incredibly powerful MIDI controller. Equipped with direct stereo output, simply connect Keystage to your computer and directly link to the sound system without the need for additional gear that takes up valuable space.

Keystage also offers flexible customization options. You can modify settings directly through the menu or conveniently adjust them using the Korg Kontrol software on your computer.

Keystage includes an expansion plate that can be attached at two different angles, making it ideal for tablets and other devices.

Keystage x Ableton Live

Ableton Live is the industry-standard tool for live performance, thanks to its innovative dual Session/Arrangement view, smooth clip triggering, looping, and powerful production tools.

Keystage offers official integration with Live, putting both transport and device control at your fingertips.

Keystage detects the device currently active in Ableton Live, and automatically maps to the first 8 parameters. When switching devices, Keystage dynamically reconfigures itself for an uninterrupted experience, keeping you in the zone.

Both Ableton Live and Keystage are MPE-compatible, enabling enhanced flexibility and creative possibilities in your music. Live's powerful Drift synthesizer (available with version 11.3) leverages MPE to offer even more expressive capabilities.

Keystage comes bundled with Ableton Live 11 Lite as part of its software suite. Ableton Live 11 Lite is a beginner-friendly version of Live, providing many of the core features to help you kickstart your journey in music creation and performance.

MIDI 2.0

The future of music

MIDI 2.0 is one of the most exciting developments in electronic music production in decades and allows two-way MIDI conversations. Previously, MIDI 1.0 messages went in one direction: from a transmitter to a receiver. MIDI 2.0 is bi-directional and changes MIDI from a monologue to a dialogue.

Thanks to new MIDI-CI (Capability Inquiry) messages, MIDI 2.0 devices can talk to each other, and auto-configure themselves to work together.

Keystage retrieves information such as which Control Change (CC) parameters should be linked and the appropriate names to display for each parameter. This means that Keystage can talk with a wide range of MIDI 2.0 compatible devices and exchange information in both directions. This exciting feature extends not only to software plugins, but also to hardware devices.

MIDI 2.0 Property Exchange is compatible with traditional MIDI DIN cables, allowing Keystage to seamlessly integrate with existing devices. Furthermore, backwards compatibility is not an issue with Keystage: it can still communicate using MIDI 1.0 with devices that do not support MIDI 2.0.

With Smart Chord and Smart Scale technology, creating music and transferring what's in your imagination to what you hear coming out of your computer has never been easier!

With Smart Chord activated, pressing a single key or pad will play a full chord rather than just one note. The key or pad you press will determine the root note in the chord. The rest of the chord's properties (Major, Minor, and Voicing - 1,3,5; 1,3,7; 1,3,5,7, etc.) are determined by the settings you choose. Smart Chord also has a Custom Mode which lets you to determine the chord structure that will be assigned to each key by manually playing it. For example, if you select Custom Mode, and play a 1-b3-5-b7 chord, every key will then be assigned to play this chord structure. The note of the key you press will serve as the root of the chord and all of the parameters can be edited right on the Oxygen Pro 25!

The Oxygen Pro 25 also features intelligent Smart Scale technology. With Smart Scale, you can set the key bed so that only notes in the selected scale are able to be played. This allows you to play within a chosen scale without the risk of playing any "wrong" notes. You can choose from 16 different scale variations when assigning a scale to the keyboard. Smart Scale is easy to activate and deactivate and allows you to set the scale parameters you need to keep you focused on creating.

Built into the Oxygen Pro 25 are features that are essential to creating modern day pop, electronic, hip hop, and dance music. Note Repeat and the built-in Arpeggiator open up a world of precise music production and live sound techniques to make your music sound professional.

Note Repeat allows you to hold down any of the custom-made M-Audio performance pads and you'll hear a repeated rhythmic pattern at a selectable note division. The Note Repeat feature can be activated momentarily or can be used in Latch mode. If you choose Momentary, holding the Note Repeat button will make the note played by the pad automatically repeat. If you choose Latch, pressing any pad will cause its assigned note to repeat without you having to hold down the Note Repeat button.

The built-in Arpeggiator Arpeggiator will affect anything you are playing on the keys from any virtual instrument in your DAW. When the Arpeggiator is activated, the keyboard will repeatedly play the pressed keys in sequence. The arpeggiator's timing and rhythm is based on the keyboard's time division setting and either the keyboard's or your DAW's tempo setting. Each note in the arpeggio will be the length you've selected for the time division setting; for example, if you select 1/4, each note in the arpeggio will be a quarter note. This powerful tool can operate in Latch or Momentary mode, making it easy to unleash your creativity.

Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol A49 Semi-Weighted USB MIDI Keyboard Controller
Cat: 702727 Rel: 19 Oct 18
 
Smart, streamlined keyboard controller with 49 semi-weighted keys
Notes: NI's more affordable Komplete Kontrol A range offers a keenly priced take on the flagship S models. Here in 49-key format, the semi-weighted keybed offers great feel.

Supplier's notes:
Get hands-on with your music:

Music-making is at its best when it's fast, fun, and physical. Find the right sound, make it your own, perform, and capture the results - all from a responsive, semi-weighted keyboard. Complete with four premium instruments plus MASCHINE Essentials, A-Series keyboards come with everything you need to bring your ideas to life.

Find your sounds faster:

With hundreds of presets to choose from, finding the right sound can be a chore. With KOMPLETE KONTROL, however, all of your KOMPLETE and NKS presets are intuitively tagged and organised, so finding the right one is fast and easy. What's more, you can hear a preview of each sound as you browse, without loading individual instruments.

Need some serious low end? Use the encoders and OLED display to select SYNTH > BASS > SUB BASS, then listen through the presets and load up the right one for your track.

Pre-mapped and ready to play:

All of your KOMPLETE and NKS instruments and effects are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware by the people who know them best - the instrument designers themselves. Essential parameters like envelope controls and filter cutoffs are instantly displayed on the OLED display as you touch the corresponding knob. That means you can see exactly what you're adjusting in real time - whether it's in kHz, dB, or BPM.

Perform creatively:

With Smart Play, you never need to worry about hitting a wrong note - just pick a scale and play. Activate chord mode to create a rich progression by playing single keys, then switch on the arpeggiator and turn it into an expressive musical performance. And for keyboard novices, Easy Mode maps the white keys to whichever scale you like.

Capture your ideas:

No matter your setup, A-Series is designed to fit right into your existing workflow, with immediate access to transport, mixing, and editing controls in your favourite DAW. Logic Pro X and GarageBand are currently supported, with advanced integration for Ableton Live, Cubase, and Nuendo coming soon after launch. And if you're just getting started, the included MASCHINE Essentials allows you to capture and arrange your ideas direct from your hardware - no additional software needed.

Instruments included:

With more than 4,500 sounds and 9.7 GB of content included, A-Series keyboards come with everything you need to start making music. Register your hardware and get two powerful synths, two meticulously sampled pianos, and more. Plus with MASCHINE Essentials, you'll have all the tools you need to go from inspiration to finished track.

Nektar Impact LX Mini USB MIDI Keyboard Controller (black)
Cat: 850868 Rel: 24 Nov 21
 
Ultra-portable MIDI controller with powerful performance features and hands-on DAW & instrument control.
Notes: Impact LX Mini: Create & produce.

Impact LX Mini makes the power of Nektar's Impact LX range of USB MIDI controller keyboards truly portable. Enhance your workflow with a host of powerful real-time and intuitive control features that inspire your creativity: No menu-diving, tactile control, two arpeggiators, drum pads, mini-keys that are great to play - and of course Nektar DAW integration. LX Mini has everything you need to create!

The features you need to play, perform & produce

Keys

Impact LX Mini features our newly developed keybed with 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keys. It can be played expressively and has a defined and firm feel. With a choice of 4 velocity curves and 3 fixed values, you can tailor the keyboard response to your playing style. Dedicated Octave buttons let you shift the octave swiftly for a wider reach. Additionally, the Part 2 buttons can be used for transpose.

Joystick

The Joystick is 4 modulation controls in one: Left/right controls pitch bend, the upwards axis is preassigned to control modulation and the downwards axis is set to foot pedal control. The lever's push button sends foot pedal at max. level. Up, Down and the push button are freely assignable to any MIDI CC# number. Settings are retained over power-cycling.

Footswitch

LX Mini even has a footswitch socket for connecting a sustain pedal, a feature often missing on mini-keyboards. Connect any standard sustain pedal to the 1/8" mini socket (an adapter from 1/8" to 1/4" is included). Polarity is detected automatically on boot-up, and it is freely MIDI CC#-assignable.

Transport

Control any MIDI music software from LX Mini's 7 Transport buttons. All buttons are MIDI-assignable, with the shift button doubling the number of assignments to 14. With Nektar DAW integration, you even get a third control level for a total of up to 21 functions - all pre-mapped for instant use.

Knobs

8 knobs give you instant access to arpeggio, instrument or MIDI CC# parameters. The Instrument, Internal and Arp/Repeat mode buttons instantly assign the panel to the corresponding features. The Page button doubles the number of assignments.

Pads

Impact LX Mini helps you creating expressive grooves and beats with its 8 velocity-sensitive pads. They offer a hyper-sensitive and even response, ideal for finger-drumming. Assignments are done in seconds and can be stored in 4 pad maps for a total of 32 note assignments.

Inspiring real-time tools with instant access

Arpeggiator & note repeat

Two independent Arp/Repeat engines (one for keys and one for pads) with instant parameter access will inspire exciting synth and percussion lines. Once selected and activated, the Arp/Repeat engine parameters are available on the 8 knobs: Rate, Swing, Accent Level, Interval, Tempo, Arp Modes and Arp Octave can be changed in real-time. The screen printing makes it easy to find the parameter you are looking for.
The Page button switches between the Keys and Pads engine settings, and the buttons next to the pads allow to activate them independently. So it is really easy to have a hi hat or percussion figure going on the pads, while you have an arpeggio bass line figure assigned to the keys in double time - with immediate access to changing either. The tempo can be clocked internally or via MIDI.

Double up: Part 2

Part 2 is a unique performance feature for momentary setup changes: While playing, press one of the dedicated "Part 2" buttons to momentarily shift the octave up or down, transpose, layer another octave on top, switch to another MIDI channel altogether - or any combination of these features.
The instant you let go of the buttons, Impact LX Mini reverts back to its original settings. What's more, any note that was played prior to pressing "Part 2" will keep playing at the original settings - so you could play and hold some really low bass notes, while playing a solo over the top. You'd like to latch your setting? Simply press the second Part 2 button while still holding the first. Part 2 will help you play in new ways, not even possible on larger keyboards!

Nektar SE25 Mini 25-Key USB MIDI Keyboard Controller (black)
Cat: 727832 Rel: 25 Apr 19
 
25-mini keys USB MIDI Controller with Nektar DAW integration + Bitwig 8-Track
Notes: The Nektar SE25 is a great solution for any mobile production setup. Our most compact MIDI keyboard controller is about as wide as a laptop and gives you all you need to create music on the move: 25 mini keys (that actually play well), six control buttons and Nektar DAW Integration. So the SE25 is way more powerful than it might seem at first glance.

MOBILE ACTION - THE KEYBOARD:

The keys are the most important feature for a MIDI controller keyboard: They transport your playing and musical ideas into the computer. As the SE25 is designed to be ultimately mobile and fit in any backpack, there was simply no room to fit full-size keys. But still we wanted it to be playable well. So we developed a new velocity-sensitive mini-keybed for the SE25. Despite these keys' miniscule dimensions, you can play them expressively with a defined and firm feel. What's more, a choice of three different velocity curves allows you to adjust the keyboard response to your playing style. These keys are ready for action!

DOUBLE UP - PART TWO:

Simply press the dedicated "2" button to momentarily shift the octave, add an octave or harmony layer while you play - or switch to a different channel: The unique Part Two feature will enable you to play in ways not even possible on keyboards with many more keys! What's so special about this? Well, the moment you let go of the Part Two button, the SE25 reverts back to its original settings. So you can toggle back-and-forth between two different keyboard configurations in realtime. A fun performance feature!

The "2" button is assignable to Octave, MIDI Channel, Transpose, Layer and Latch or a combination of these features.

MODULATE - PERFORMANCE CONTROLS:

Pitch Bend, Modulation and Sustain are key ingredients for dynamic keyboard performances. So we found a way to shrink the controls to size and put them right at your fingertips. Six buttons to the left of the keyboard are pre-assigned to octave shift, transpose and sustain. Don't need transpose? Then assign the transpose buttons to Pitch Bend, MIDI Volume, Pan, Track* or Patch* change instead (*= requires Nektar DAW Integration). And the "S" Sustain button can alternatively be used to control modulation.

NEKTAR DAW INTEGRATION:

Give your trackpad or mouse a break and control DAW transport functions and track selection directly from the SE25: Simply press the Play and Rewind buttons simultaneously to enter transport mode and our custom NEKTAR DAW Integration software lets you control your DAW!

Nektar DAW Integration for SE25 currently supports Bitwig, Cubase, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Mixcraft, Reason, Reaper, Sonar and Studio One. (In order to take advantage of Nektar DAW Integration, you need to register your SE25 and download the integration files from your user account.)

CAPTURE YOUR IDEAS - BITWIG 8-TRACK INCLUDED:

You can start producing, performing, and designing sounds like a pro from day one with the included Bitwig 8-Track DAW. It includes over 50 software instruments and effects for use on up to 8 audio or MIDI project tracks, and you can use any 3rd party VST plug-ins you might own, too. The 'Bitwig Essentials Package' comes as part of this package as well, featuring a highly versatile handpicked selection of loops, clips and samples, to make it even easier to get you started.

With Nektar DAW Integration you can control track selection and transport controls directly from the SE25, making this a fantastic combination. If you are just starting out, you will find it's the perfect way to take your first steps in the world of digital music creation. And if you're already familiar with using computer software, you'll be amazed at what this combination has to offer!

Nektar SE49 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller
Cat: 727834 Rel: 02 May 19
 
49-full-size keys USB MIDI Controller with Nektar DAW integration + Bitwig 8-Track.
Notes: The Nektar SE49 USB MIDI controller keyboard has all the features you need to start making music with your computer. It is compatible with any MIDI music software, sports a full-size keyboard with velocity, includes all the performance controls you'd expect and even has Nektar DAW control features. Simply plug the supplied USB-cable in and go: Capture your ideas while they are fresh!

PLAY - THE ACTION:
The keys are a keyboard controller's most important feature. So we made sure that the SE49 has keys that are fun and expressive to play: Its synth-action keybed has 49 velocity-sensitive full-size keys with a defined and firm feel. And as everyone has their own playing style and preferences, we have included a choice of 4 different velocity curves (plus 3 fixed ones) so you can adjust the keyboard response to your needs.

PERFORM - THE PERFORMANCE CONTROLS:
No matter if you want to play a complex solo in the style of Herbie Hancock or are just trying to make an EDM wobble bass more lively by adding modulation: the SE49's large Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheels will get you there. They have a tight grip and offer just the right resistance. For piano-style sustain effects, you can connect a switch or pedal to the foot switch socket on the back of the SE49.

BUTTON UP - THE CONTROLS:
Four buttons and one MIDI-assignable fader to the left of the keys make the SE49 even more flexible: Shift the keyboard up or down -3/+4 octaves with multi-coloured LED indicators showing the exact status. Or transpose the keys +/- 12 semitones with the transpose buttons right below.

CUSTOM MIDI ASSIGNMENTS:
Take control a notch further: Most soft- and hardware products with MIDI have their parameters assigned to so-called MIDI CC messages. This lets you do cool things such as changing filter cutoff, panning, effects bypass or any other parameter that has a MIDI CC assigned to it from a hardware control on your SE49.

Simply set the MIDI Fader, Modulation Wheel or foot switch pedal to control the MIDI CC message you want. Your assignments are stored over power cycling, so next time you can continue where you left off right away.

CONTROL YOUR DAW:
How about getting a better workflow without any of this nerdy stuff? How about transport control, level mixing and track selection directly from the SE49? Take control of your DAW's most important functions with our Nektar DAW Integration software! Of course, the SE49 works with any MIDI software, but with custom Nektar DAW Integration you can do even more: Use the Transpose buttons for track or patch change, always have the currently selected track's volume assigned to the fader and turn the Octave and Transpose buttons into Play, Stop, Record and Rewind buttons. How's that for giving the mouse a break?

Nektar DAW Integration for SE25 currently supports Bitwig, Cubase, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Mixcraft, Reason, Reaper, Sonar and Studio One. (In order to take advantage of Nektar DAW Integration, you need to register your SE25 and download the integration files from your user account.)

GET CONNECTED - SETUP & iOS:
SE49 keyboards are USB class compliant and don't require a driver to operate. Installation and connection is easy; just plug the keyboard in to a USB port on your computer. You can also connect an Impact SE49 keyboard to an iOS device using the optional Apple USB camera connection kit. A 1/4? input jack allows you to add a foot switch pedal for sustain or sending MIDI messages.

CAPTURE YOUR IDEAS - BITWIG 8-TRACK INCLUDED:
You can start producing, performing, and designing sounds like a pro from day one with the included Bitwig 8-Track DAW. It includes over 50 software instruments and effects for use on up to 8 audio or MIDI project tracks, and you can use any 3rd party VST plug-ins you might own, too.
