Average keyboard
nicolasvp, 18.09.2020
I bought this because my very old midi controller was dying. I was used to quite good key action from the 90s so this is quite the disappointment: the keys feel very basic and the touch is average. I've seen worst, but as a main controller I feel some I lost some nuance in the velocity. That being said I tested other modern keyboards in this price range and it's all the same : I feel the whole midi controller industry has lost its quality in the last few years unless you're ready to pay a lot more.

On my computer all the transport/DAW control buttons do not work. I tried different settings with Mackie/HUI output but nothing worked. Sad!

The pitch and modulation key have a weird shape (the radius is too small I think) that make them uncomfortable for precise usage.

What I like is the small footprint of the keyboard, it's not very long so it sits nicely on my desk.

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)

Wow its great!!
bencyl, 26.02.2020
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!!

M-Audio Keystation 61 MK3
Yukor, 10.07.2020
One of the best-in-class MIDI keyboards in terms of price and quality. Good build quality. Semi-weighted mechanics allow the player to better control the dynamics of the performed parts. Easy to operate, reliable in operation. The design is simple and concise, the quality of materials is good. The set of management functions is very sparse, but in most cases it is sufficient. It is not possible to adjust the keyboard sensitivity. When performing dynamic musical parts, the clicking of keys is slightly annoying, but not critical. Given the lack of additional controllers, it is more suitable for playing and creating arrangements than for controlling the parameters of virtual synthesizers and DAW functions. To solve such problems, you need to look for something else.
