MulToR's review - Novation X-Station 61

Value For Money : Excellent
My sound card ASIO was dead and I was looking at the same time a master keyboard with quality knobs and faders for my DAW.
This keyboard met all at an affordable price and the reviews were very good.

UTILIZATION

The touch keyboard is very nice (much more than my old Evolution MK-461C!). This is a keyboard with aftertouch, very easy to use.
The keyboard is of course MIDI (In / Out / Through) and connects to the PC in Midi or USB2.
The keyboard contains an integrated audio card ASIO high quality and equipped with phantom power to directly record your voice with microphone (no need to pre-amp).
Pb no latency. The keyboard is not recognized bp XP, VISTA or 7.
The knobs and faders are also quality and set themselves in a jiffy in your DAW (for me FL Studio).
This master keyboard is also equipped with a synth part, meaning it can play sounds without being connected to a PC. The sounds are pretty good overall in an electronic register! This is a definite plus but if you own a PC, you will find these sounds in VST type Novation V-Station.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this keyboard for over a year and a half.
A true Swiss Army knife with quality components:
61 key master keyboard with aftertouch quality
ASIO soundcard-contained (2 entry Jack / XLR Mono / 2 Output Jack)
Synth-integrated

A very good value for money and space savings.
Yes I would do this choice today.
