As part of my iPad Music Creation series, I plan to cover gear and apps that will be helpful for creating and promoting music. I’ve been looking into a portable Midi controller keyboard that works well with the iPad and I feel the M-Audio Keystation fits the bill. In fact, the Mini 32 won the coveted “Editors Choice Award” over at the Pro Tools Expert blog. Please note that you will need an Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit in order to use the Keystation with your iPad.
From the M-Audio Website:
The M-Audio® Keystation Mini 32 is the ideal choice for players on the go. Designed by the company that pioneered mobile music production, this ultra-portable keyboard delivers unmatched playability in its class. Simply plug it into your computer or iPad and perform two-hand parts with 32 great-feeling, low-profile mini-keys. Customize the keyboard sensitivity to your playing style with highly musical velocity curves—including one specifically for drum programming. Control your performance with four assignable controls, including a rotary knob. And easily play and write music using the included software. With USB bus power and plug-and-play functionality, Keystation Mini 32 is the easy way to create and perform on the go.
