Good for the price!
Izmotion 28.01.2020
If you don't need too much control, this might be the keyboard for you. The build is decent for the price, the keys feel nice, the additional features such as transpose are great to mess around with your setup. Control over MIDI channels etc. is also adequate. All in all, decent for the price.

The biggest con by far are the instructions. These do not explain properly how some of the features are activated .
(for example, in order to activate the MIDI out through the Din-5 port, you need to press "Advanced" > press "Midi Out" > and THEN press "Enter" when the lights are green)


Amazing and simple 61 key keyboard
Jaydabliu 02.06.2023
I got this to replace my old Alesis V61 keyboard that had issues with the velocity.. I love 61 key keyboards because I can carry them with me everywhere including as carry-on in my bass guitar case… I play a lot of jazzy, neo soul and hip hop type music on the road so I always need to bring my keys with me while traveling so I can practice in the hotel room or record with people I meet.

The build of this 61 key keyboard is plastic but solid, rugged and lightweight.. keys feel good to the touch and have a nice bounce back… no aftertouch if you need something like that.., modulation wheel has a nice smooth travel to it. The keyboard is usb powered and had no problems drawing power from my iPad or my MacBook… though there’s the option of keeping it AC powered which is always good if you wanna use the 5 pin midi option.

Thomann delivery was also quick.. I got my keys on the road within two days of ordering. Condition was great.

All in all. This is a very solid keyboard for the traveling gigging musician or the producer who just likes keeping the keys on the desk.


Wow its great!!

I was on the market for 61 key MIDI controller to play/record piano and synth sounds. Im a piano player, so main important aspect was feel of the keybed. Despite reviews on keybed not beeing the best, I gave it a shot.

I can safely say the feeling is great. Keys are big enough, they have nice pushback so you have the feeling that they are sturdy and they are perfectly responsive. Using it with very dinamic piano VST and you forget you are playing 130€ MIDI keyboard.

Its build very well, feature wise it has not alot, but that is evident right away. I does come with a ton of software, which is quite useful. Cubase 10.5 recognised it right away, no problems here.

I really recommend the purchase, Thomann great as always!!


Budget friendly MIDI keyboard
Kostas123k 06.11.2020
I bought the Keyboard a year ago and I have spend many hours in front of them making music.I have to say thats the M-Audio Keyastation 61 its a very good keyboard for the price range for one who need many octaves and dont have a big budget.

Plug n play
programmable buttons(record,start,stop,octave up/down)
good build quality

The keys doesnt feel very natural but its some comromises needed for the price
