The Keyboard control Studiotech MC-49 is a working really well for those who want to program their music on computer or control module or expander on n'importel scne or home. From a clear blue type I-mac Apple gnration 1st, The MC-49 (like the MC-25 and MC-61) n is in the factories of Asia TAHORN manufacturer of o Socit Midiman (M-Audio) is now building his own keyboards (Keystation 49 USB, etc. ..). It possde a keyboard 49 notes (standard size) dynamic, and offers all the Necessary for MIDI controllers do a good job of incremented of events to MIDI / SysEx and notes for your next musical compositions. It is clear that when comparing an MC-49 and a Studiotech Keystation 49 Midiman one wonders o is the difference between two products if the fact that the MC-49 is far more of trs Esth tick, it possde encoders better quality package that offers a CD-Rom Official Steinberg Cubasis, but it does not possde port USB.Certains say it's all the the drama, I say that MIDI is faster. APRS, while the die dpend that it is the plane on which one is ... .
But in the end is not the price o achte is an instrument that makes you feel like buying a good instrument (REFERENCE dtest what I call a qualitprix good value). In this case, no one will be surprised to know that the MC-49 costs less than 130 euros.

MOST: The keyboard is trs enjoyable to the touch, however if you have to do a thorough comparative study, there is so far in this product line is nothing better than the Edirol keyboards and PCR30PCR50 I think now I ask that change your mind . But this is not the same price. Adapt music programming and integration of events to another, I use on scne 2 x MC-49, one for playing MIDI Parts supplmentaires (register above) that the Nord Electro is transformed into Double keyboard, and one for my images on the grate with the software X-Pose Steinberg - each image and each effect is associated with a spcial note on the keyboard. Free me to play as a preset and add the squence of IMGA epourtant interventions recorded in midi-listed and the effects supplmentaires. Trsvloce.
Yes, I find this really small keyboard., And the blue tone of the keyboard helps some lgance the product. Controllers Pitch Bend and Modulation are also of good quality. We do not feel like the little springs that fixs the pendulum will block the Premire using the dial. I will not give the name of the brand manufacturer but there are abusers.
THE -: The MC-49 could have a fader for possder incremented / dcrmentation a little more flexible. I'm not saying that it is difficult to handle, but far from the good, a bit like rubbing one's confrre the other brand. Any fawn, less than 250 euros - should not try ... a rub . Being given that it returns to a re o keyboards - Bandoullires reveinnent front of scnes, we are also entitled to ask why Tahorn not wish to offer a live version of This occurs because in 49 keys, it is easier to wear than 61. (See MC-61: CHARACTERISTICS same / same combat)
I use it since its launch in 2001. To believe that gnration MIDI keyboards do not age (the forecasted is that everyone runs in APRS core of A-30 or equivalents). In fact the MC-49 is functional look, fast and reliable, it is difficiel to affix any critical dplace instrument. Studiotech, marks the group OPDs Guillard Music Distribution, which has hlas bankruptcy in December 2002, could continue to fawn all offer electronic instruments in parallle with Midiman Corporation since International firm has been named the luxury of paying Tahorn by closer business partnerships or exclusive. So for those who are in doubt as to who takes over the warranty LGAL Manufacturer: Please Tahorn, thank you M-Audio . So No Soucy!
While it does not possde USB ... So what! And then?!?.
Liv with his pack and Cubasis Steinberg, MC-49 is by its ergonomics and its 49-key keyboard CHARACTERISTICS, formidable.

Keyboard Master "Simple", a good price. I was nine for 75 €, I use it to "enlarge" my keyboard, I just need a keyboard to play different sounds supllémentaire same time.
The connection is very simple, AC adapter (supplied) and standard MIDI Out socket "Joystick" to connect to the PC (cable supplied). In some configurations, the computer can power the MC49.
Nothing more to say ... ca remaining simple, and it is the subsistence level ...
Since the MC49 does not have many functions, its use is very simple!
I can not find his touch very extraordinary, but since I'm not a purist heavy hit, it suits me plenty!
We can just regret that the different MIDI commands is not very accessible ... you must press a "Menu" button then press the corresponding key on the keyboard (the keyboard is partially disabled) and then press the button again Menu ... is simple but very practical.
Nevertheless it is very pleasant to use.
I use it for a little over a year, and I unfortunately had a lot of problems at first ... I have three grades that did not work due to groundwater (son electric) defective ... Holding down the walk, but sometimes they remain "stuck", no physical way, but the sound continues even when I release the button. So we must find the key that stuck and press again it ... Live in some way the fact ca
This stems from the fact that the MC49 is an entry level ...
For value for money I'm happy I did not need a "monster" but just a little master keyboard to better leave my sounds. Despite these defects of quality I do not regret this purchase.

Question CHARACTERISTICS MC-49 and identical to the MC-61 (I bought DPOS sales) with an octave least that's all. It possde everything you would expect from a master keyboard.
I had bought to make LIVE But now even be 2 years APRS, it has three buttons that no longer work. Because I guarantee or disassemble and cleaned with alcohol and did not help the sensors are not concerned because I had always DCALL and c'tait same notes that were not working. So I ended up soldering iron and miracle! It even re-worked re-APRS installation. Except that once the problem happens to local silent back on the same notes ... So over 2nd keyboard, but all of fawn to live c'tait bad because to change instrument and use another channel is used to select a button (the one actually) and then r-a note and press the select button which is often limited when moving from one instrument to another Manir fast, I sometimes go over so quickly that the key selection remains Inrush and if in my agreement was the "reset" bein I lost all my channels SETTING THE AMS-64 read my ... As for the MC-61 it has made me rev quickly.
I think this keyboard is for those beginners who want a master keyboard to compose small pieces and immediately find the MIDI nice without breaking the bank. For other musicians a bit more amateur and beyond will require investment in something more expensive but more robust and better quality because even if it's not 130 trs expensive when should the charges will each year and a half in average returns quickly expensive. I for one not dnigre occasions brand recognized as a master keyboard I use a Roland E-32 cost me 200 and I am happy even if trs is far from being perfect has the MRIT of being robust and enjoyable to play.
