The M-Audio Keystation 88es is a lower mid-cost musical keyboard. The pitch and modulation wheels of this keyboard allow you to control effects on the fly, while the volume slider allows you easy access to the master volume. The eighty-eight keys of this keyboard are velocity-sensitive, which means that they will respond to how hard you hit them. These keys are also semi-weighted. The included Ableton Light Live software allows you to record your music onto your computer. The Keystation 88es is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows XP, and Vista (32 bit), with automatic installation. This keyboard differs from the lower cost Keystation 61es in that it has eighty-eight keys instead of sixty-one. The M-Audio Keystation 88es is powered via USB or 9VDC power adapter (sold separately).
