M-Audio's Hammer 88 is an 88-key USB/MIDI keyboard controller designed to provide realistic piano-style feel and control of virtual instruments for musicians, composers, and programmers on stage or in the studio. It features 88 velocity-sensitive, hammer-action keys, which are fully weighted to reproduce the feel of playing on a grand piano. The included music rest is convenient for sheet music or propping up a phone or tablet.

Everything you need for expressive performances
The Hammer 88 is lean and mean, yet it has the essentials for expressive performances. Pitch and mod wheels, a master fader, and two assignable buttons are ergonomically positioned on deck. The mod wheel and fader are mappable to any MIDI parameter, for easy sound sculpting on the fly. Use the up and down buttons to select programs, FX, MMC messages, to jump octaves, and more. M-Audio designed the Hammer for serious keyboardists, so naturally, they included a complement of pedal inputs that let you articulate your performances like a pro.

Full integration with your studio and gig rig
If you enjoy using hardware synths, sound modules, and drum machines in addition to virtual instruments, then the Hammer 88's 5-pin DIN MIDI output is for you . Of course, there's a USB-MIDI port for connecting with your computer. Add the optional Apple Camera Connection Kit, and you have access to your favorite iOS music apps! And for the ultimate in convenience, the Hammer 88 is USB-powered and class-compliant, so there's no power supply to misplace! It's available separately, however, if you need one for stand-alone use.
