Korg Keystage 49

With groundbreaking MIDI 2.0 compatibility, polyphonic aftertouch, and an integrated audio interface, Korg's Keystage 49 redefines what it means to be a full-featured MIDI keyboard controller. Keystage embraces one of the most exciting features of MIDI 2.0: MIDI-CI Property Exchange messages. What this means for you as a musician or producer is that when you connect to compatible MIDI 2.0 software or hardware instruments, Keystage's OLED displays will automatically update with parameter names and values. No more time spent MIDI mapping CCs—it's all done automatically! Keystage is also equipped with stellar DAW compatibility, including official integration with Ableton Live and Korg's own Gadget, for easy remote control of transport and other features.

Given the rising popularity of expressive MPE and poly aftertouch-capable instruments, Korg partnered up with ASM to incorporate their PolyTouch keybeds into Keystage. Whether you're plugging a Keystage into Ableton's MPE instruments, ASM's Hydrasynth, or any of the other fantastic devices out there, Keystage gives you all you need to pack expressivity into each and every note. And if you're trying to travel to your gig as lightweight as possible, not only does Keystage feature a slim and portable design, but it also features an incorporated USB audio interface. This is an instant and effective way to get quality audio out of your computer running software synthesizers and furthers Keystage's goal of blurring the lines between controller and instrument. If you're seeking a totally modern MIDI keyboard controller, there's hardly a better option than the Keystage 49 from Korg.
