M-Audio KeyStudio 49i gives you amazing, expressive control over your virtual instruments. But, that's just the beginning! This outstanding (and amazingly affordable) 49-key controller has stellar onboard piano sounds from a stereo-sampled Steinway. The M-Audio KeyStudio 49i also comes complete with M-Audio GM sound module software, which increases the available sounds to an astounding 128; that's an impressive array of sounds to add to the M-Audio KeyStudio 49i's controller capabilities. But, M-Audio didn't stop there. They added a 2-in/2-out USB interface, so you can put music directly into your computer via built-in XLR, 1/4", or RCA jacks. Plus, the KeyStudio 49i comes complete with Ableton Live Lite software.
