FrenchPlaya's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Evolution Mk-461c
This keyboard offers great possibilities of CONTRL in real time via its DIFFERENT potentiomtre / faders (while remaining compact and lightweight)
The pitch bend and modulation spars are functional and well placed trs (unlike the brand Roland, Korg offering Systmes combins prcis little, or not in M-Audio, which places above the keys).
The USB connector allows to avoid a diet.


The small notch s'avre very practical and thanks to the software ENIGMA is a snap to grate the configs.
Only ngatifs points:
The quality of the keys can be improved
Too bad the manufacturer does not provide manuals in French (or even on the site www.evolution.co.uk (http://www.evolution.co.uk))


All in all a good product with a trs qualitprix report more than correct!
I recommend anyone who uses your PC as a workstation.

Evolution Mk-461c
Technically, that's about the same as the edirol pcr 50 or radium 61C ... basically a MIDI keyboard with a touch plastoc (no touch weighted piano at that price, do not dream), 61 velocity-sensitive keys with knobs, faders and eleven midi assignable buttons and more knobs mandatory pitch and modulation. Compared to the other two, say he has a little more buttons and controllers, and he does a little cheap (especially more than the cheap edirol)


The touch keyboard is crap in the bar but do not forget that this is a keyboard 250 euros ...
the buttons are large and quite nice but the sensation soft repel the real musicians, those who think Coldplay or Air's music, for example (which I'm not).
general configuration is very simple and very helped by the Enigma software available on the manufacturer's website. It is better to use the USB for power and MIDI control, XP and some software are finicky with USB music-it does not pose a problem in practice once properly configured.
the selection of patches (which can be stored, too, so when you have spent three quarters of an hour to assign your favorite VST synth, you can save it, that's fun) is very easy and perfect plants control presets well b4 my favorite.
the manual is no story, honestly I did read that once and it is more than enough.


I've had six months, I use it every day, 20 hours a week and I am quite happy to use I am: Real-time control of VST synths, heavy use of Reaktor .
the most:
USB power, it's a transformer under
the position of the faders and controllers is perfect, having the rotary controllers and faders is excellent (for example for barley type b4 faders control the drawbars and rotary controllers vibrato or something else)-and decision pedal organ delight fans, more ...
MIDI-assignable buttons I love, it can assign functions to buttons to type mute / solo
the 'all in one' can have an object on your desktop ... If you have the space and money, buy more of a MIDI master keyboard to touch and a weighted complete controller (such as evolution UC33, but buy a cheap less)
the price / quality ratio is unbeatable if like me you buy special offer at 210 euros ... (Normal price is close to that of the Edirol, I urge you to go try both, the choice really depends on what you want to do)
an important point if you want to go live with, it is rather light for its size while remaining fairly stable, a point that I like

Like all products of the brand, it's plastoc to ten francs, the life of the potentiometers is quite limited especially if you get upset over a little on stage
albeit one who has the most, I would have liked even more faders and buttons, just in the spirit of the CPU 33
the normal price, I think the edirol has a life longer, but it has fewer buttons and the keyboard is more plastoc (I think)

total: price / quality ratio very good use rather nice, very space saving. Warning: do not buy used!!

Evolution Mk-461c
Lots of MIDI controllers, keyboard 61 keys, octave button + / - very practical
USB connection, power supply by USB ..


The touch keyboard is not that of a piano, but at this price you can not ask too much, no config was carried out under win XP, the keyboard is automatically recognized.
patches and config channels very simple
The basic manual is a little light but a more detailed manual is on the cd


I've had about six months, since I am completely satisfied (very very convenient memory dump)
quality / price ratio excellent despite the poor quality of plastics (bah.. + The important thing is that it works :-)
a recommender!

Blashol's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Evolution Mk-461c
In addition to my last review I give you here the images taken on protools to show you the diffrence dynamics can not play me! (Unless you only use synths without dynamic)

for this test I used a keyboard first and then the EVOLUTION YAMAHA CLP123 KM461C
I made two recordings with the two curves EVOLUTION rponses diffrent C1 (ultralinaire) and C4 (very strong)
Finally I took the test without sonspour not be influenced and automatically correct default that the ear could hear and keep only the sensation of touch.
blue select the black keys

by agreements in jous altrnance on black and white etc. ...

or in better quality here atlcharger: http://c.zinzin.free.fr/forum/accords.JPG

by a chromatic scale

or Tlcharger: http://c.zinzin.free.fr/forum/chromatique.JPG
we realize that there is a diffrence average dynamics of 20 (on MIDI scale of 128) between white and black. And this diffrence is ngligeable on YAMAHA (or due to the game) but it becomes obvious on the evolution and due to the manufacturer ... unless it is a default on mine, I will at this apremidi Playback to compare it with another. and change it if it is the manufacturer. (Which I'm about 90%)


Enjoyable simple, easy to install


permitted! ! ! ! ! unless you ONLY faitent lctro the vintage sound that does not use dynamic
