maxdow's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A good versatile keyboard"

M-Audio ProKeys Sono 61
I was looking for both a master keyboard and a keyboard that can play sounds without pc / expander. The audio interface has been a plus in my decision-making (compatible 64bit which was not the case with my old FCA202)

UTILIZATION

I am not a pianist but I had the opportunity to play on several types of keyboard. Without a touchdown this piano keyboard is not very soft. It is quite pleasant to use.
Regarding the actual use of the keyboard (to access functions etc. ..) is pretty average. A small screen would have really been a plus for when selecting a parameter we are a little lost. Nothing is marked on the keyboard. For example, to mute the keypad (sound hard keyboard) when using a vst or another on the output of ProKeys, press the Edit button then the # 3. not very convenient sometimes. Compressing all the functions on the keyboard can certainly save space.

However, the manual is pretty clear but it is nice to have quick access to this (eg pdf)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month and I have not really tried other models in this range.
What I like most is its versatility and having a MIDI controller and a keyboard at the same time independently.
ASIO is an integrated interface allows to work correctly and quickly.
The instrument input is not high end but it certainly helps out well. I think that trio with singer + guitar, the keyboard can also be very nice.

I think I will ever be that choice, especially for the great price value, purchased as a bundle with home thomman foot pedal for 310 €

M-Audio ProKeys Sono 61
It's a keyboard control but also a USB sound card with stereo line input, instrument input (guitar) and microphone input.
All mixable by potentiometer on the keypad.
In choosing him as my computer's sound output mix it's own internal sounds and that of the ordinary.
So I can monitor (hear) a tutorial on youtube and play along with it to learn.
I can also mute the internal and use a plugin for other sounds. Therefore passes through the usb in both directions MIDI control plugin and the sound ... not bad:)

It is also a sound generator.
The main sounds (excluding GM bank) are nice. The GM bank is good for children (the sound effects and all instruments in part).

Two headphone jacks in front, a supply by USB only, it is very convenient.
The touch is nice, different from the axiom (and much better, less plastic and less friction).

The quality of finish and overall good, it feels solid.

UTILIZATION

Impeccable, mac osx and it connects it all, everything is automatically recognized.

It should print the pdf that shows the commands associated with buttons on the keyboard (5 octaves).

The velocity curve is adjustable (3 modes).



OVERALL OPINION

1 month

The Novation Xio is only 49 keys, otherwise it is not bad too.

Manual in French trs clear.

OVERALL OPINION

Use for 1 year

I love the most: the 3 in 1, the sounds of good quality (with firmware up days on the net premium) and the price

what I like least: the connector jack 6mm (a little play in the connection); pramplis the microphone and instrument (gain therefore lack of breath if they are pushed a little, NCESS of a compressor ...)

MODEL no essay before, bought on the net long rflexion APRS.

trs good report quality price for a small budget.

yes I think I do it again this election, I advise beginners to those who want to Save computer music and their bass guitar and voice or using expanders, boxes and other rhythm groove box (between noon and RCA output ) and especially for small budgets.
and because if pt j'tais of tunes I would have bought a studio full ...
