My Review

Owning a Novation Zero SL midi surface controller, I was in the market for a “no bells or whistles” midi controller and the M-Audio Keystation 61es seemed PERFECT! That was until I played it with my sequencer and realized that the velocity sensitivity was WAY off!! I couldn’t get velocities of 127 notes to trigger unless I POUNDED on the keys, and the softest velocities I could never trigger…..and to make matters worse….THERE IS NO WAY TO ADJUST THE VELOCITY CURVES ON THE KEYBOARD!!! Not to mention that the quality of the instrument was poor – made of cheap plastic – and I returned it the next day. 

Do not waste your time with this garbage of a controller! I really don’t understand how anyone could think of using this professionally at all.
