The M-Audio Code 61 is a USB bus-powered MIDI keyboard controller that features 61 semi-weighted keys, 16 velocity-sensitive backlit trigger pads, and an X/Y touch pad. This controller is ideal for keyboardists, producers, and composers; as well as used in the studio or onstage.
This keyboard feels incredible
The M-Audio Code 61's semi-weighted keybed is first-class; professional all the way. Designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral, these keys communicate musical expression to your DAW with an ease you never thought possible. That's always been the challenge with MIDI and computer-based music creation — and the Code 61 attacks it head-on. Of course, no pro keyboard controller is complete without aftertouch, and the Code 61 has it. So go ahead and lean into the last note of that smokin' lead line and give it some tasty vibrato.
Enjoy complete control
In addition to the superb keyboard, the M-Audio Code 61's multifunction, backlit drum pads let you roll beats, warp arpeggios, launch clips in Ableton, and curb the potential for mayhem that lurks beneath the surface of every complex DAW setup. Code 61's controls offer Mackie Control and HUI modes, and the buttons are assignable to macro ASCII commands, letting you use your favorite DAW macros at the push of a button. And you can mix and match modes — the XY pad, for instance, can concurrently run Mackie Control on one axis, and HUI on the other! With immediate access to your DAW's transport, mixer, and plug-ins, you'll enjoy increased productivity and focus, resulting in better music. And that's something we can all get behind.
Works with all major DAWS
The M-Audio Code 61 works with all major DAWs, plug-in instruments, and effects. Its comprehensive controls automatically map to popular DAWs such as Ableton Live, Apple GarageBand, Apple Logic, Pro Tools, and Steinberg Cubase, so you're ready to rock, right out of the box. Code 61 ships with a comprehensive software package that includes Ableton Live Lite and AIR Music Technology's Loom and Hybrid 3 virtual synths.
