A great small Keyboard for just about anything (PreSonus - PS-49)

By Chuck_Cohen, 28/09/2019
This was my first keyboard that I got in a PreSonus Recording Bundle package. The keyboard is not great, but playable, and It has just enough controls to get you through most things. It also integrates seamlessly with PreSonus' Studio One DAW, so it has become a good utility keyboard for the studio. The truth is that this product is actually a "re-branded" Acorn Instruments Masterkey 49 keyboard controller that is colored blue and has the PreSonus name stamped on it.

Fantastic basic small keyboard controller (M-Audio - Keystation 49es)

By Chuck_Cohen, 28/09/2019
This one has been my dedicated knock-around key controller, great for playing add-on "supplemental" key parts when I primarily play saxophone at gigs, and for setting the harmonies (via MIDI) to my TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 processor pedal. I like the mod-wheels, and it has withstood live use and is still going strong.

Expecting allot but flaws in design (Akai - Max49)

By Godly75, 09/07/2019
I so loved this keyboard,
- Looks good
- great quality feel keybed
- good functions and controllers

But unfortunately:
- I had my second gig with it, now in open air and the touch faders began to jump around (and so did my settings/sound). I guess the touch response system works with warmth? So the cold screwed it over.
- the quality of the pitch/mod wheel is very bad, a known problem all over the akai keyboards

Please Akai, upgrade your products or stop calling yourselves Professional ! :-(
It's with pain in the heart I have to let this keyboard go because it was very practical and an eyecandy :(
