Pleasantly surprised

Holger B., 02.05.2015
So many keys for so little money, can I make claims to the quality? When I have time, I love to walk around in music houses and like to play a bit to the joy or fright of the employees and customers, from the Kinderklavier over Synths to the Steinway; I have already played worse keyboards up to high in the four-digit range of renowned manufacturers, which I would not like to call here. The keys do not wobble, have an even dynamic response and are surprisingly quiet when playing. I had expected quite bad things at the price :-) Generally, it makes an amazing impression when unpacking in its titanium finish, especially it is very stiff of housing and does not twist, either on the K & M keyboard stand with 2 support points still In the morning on a pillow. About the included VST piano I can not say anything: The installation failed for me for incomprehensible reasons after several hours, absurd decompress, register, high, down and load, despite 50kDSL. That did not interest me, because only in Reason I have half a dozen good pianos, including two Steinways. Ideal is it and bought by me however it is around with the Ipad via the Camera Connection Kit battery-fed and electricity net-free piano play and record. But the Pianos of garageband loose, which is known free of charge with the Ipad comes. This is very easy in the bed, living room, garden or even in the woods for 5-10 hours (without fan noise, EM load, mechanical vibrations and micro-waved, polluted air as on the PC) and with 7 kilo + carry. Conveniently, the small off switch at the rear of the USB jack saves electricity when the Ipad is sleeping in standby mode. Pitchbend and Modwheel are haptically well done and therefore also support the Synths in Garageband and similar programs. I miss the possibility to change the dynamic curves and / or pronunciation of the keys; Which could be synonymous with a VST or an app, but somehow it is also so. A carrying backpack as usual with guitars would be appropriate, because worn longitudinally it likes its sheer length like the next obstacle like the door frame. But for the money, small smears in the features are not an issue, therefore full score.

M-Audio Keystation 88, that's fun for the few guys!

Dieter777, 12.08.2015
I finally wanted to know what it's like to play with a big keyboard and I can say it's great!
The M-Audio Keystation 88 is easy to play, nothing wobbles, nothing rattles, it's just great to play (which makes a few notes lower and a few notes higher is fantastic).
USB cable is included and the control options are very good.

The free XPand2 software is a versatile program that integrates perfectly with Logic x, with a large sound library.

The EightyEight Ensemble (Steinway Grand Piano) sounds incredibly good.
I dared to compare it with the Logic x pianos (they sound like hello)
and the Steinways etc. from my Roland Integra 7.

The natural sounds of the Integra 7, sound even better than those of Logic, although I've never had such good piano sounds as that of Logic x, but the EightyEight, can compete smoothly with the Integra 7 and for free.

Clear purchase recommendation!

To insallieren the software:

1. Download and install XPand2
2. immediately after the installation, update from XPand2 download and unpack (otherwise you get problems downloading the EightyEight.
3. Download and install EightyEight

Exactly in this order!

This worked perfectly for me and was immediately ready to play in Logic X (load AU instrument)

The installation instructions are fortunately in German!


PS
Propellerhead Reason does not support VST, so it does not work.
