The Keystation mini is the perfect portable centre to any digital music studio or performance setup. Simple yet packed with features like velocity-sensitive keys, volume knob and directional buttons, USB-powered, Lightweight design and epic software like Ableton Live Lite and Ignite by AIR. It seems like the reason they have station in the name is so you wont have to move around much once you sit down at the Keystation.
Super portable The Keystation mini weighs less than half a Kg and still manages to have velocity sensitive keys. It is USB powered and can even run off an iPad with the proper connection kit. The fact that you are spread over more than 2 octaves means moving up and down though chord progressions snt a nightmare like on more limited small keyboards.
Controls at your fingertips You also have a super handy single volume knob, which can be assigned to whatever you want so you can have a volume knob, a pan knob, a reverb send knob and much more.
Portability With the ability to run just off USB means you can go and play wherever your laptop will take you. Simply plug in and play with your mac or PC. Also plays nicely with the IOS connectivity so you can play your favourite iPad synths just by using a Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (sold separately). The Keystation 49 II is lightweight and designed with moving around in the studio or on stage in mind.
Connections The USB connection not only gives you power but allows you integrate with your plugins and DAW.
