M-Audio announced that deliveries have begun of its highly-anticipated Code Series keyboards, a family of three full-featured models. Available in 25-, 49- and 61-key versions, the Code Series combines a remarkably smooth-feeling keyboard with a surprisingly complete feature set to create a keyboard line of unusually professional capability and unexpected value.
The Code Series builds upon M-Audio’s legacy of innovative workflow and playability. Their comprehensive controls automatically map to popular DAW’s such as Ableton Live, Apple GarageBand, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, and Cubase, so artists can easily convert their creativity into immediate, tangible results.
The Code Series delivers top-of-the-line performance with their professional-feel keybeds, very complete feature sets and included software, yet they are priced far below what might ordinarily be expected for this level of capability.
All Code Series keyboards feature:
- Smooth-feel, semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch
- 16 velocity-sensitive pads with LED feedback
- Touch pad for X/Y axis control
- USB Bus powered for portability and ease of use
- 5 Pin MIDI Input, and Output jacks allowing you to control your favorite synths
- Assignable pitch & mod wheels, knobs, faders, buttons (with macro ASCII support), and transport control with Mackie Control and HUI modes
- Split keyboard with four assignable zones
- Expression and Sustain pedal inputs
- 6 digit LED display
In addition, a comprehensive software package is included—Ableton Live Lite, AIR Music Technology Loom and Hybrid 3—that ensures the artist has unrestricted access to the best creative tools. “The new Code Series keyboards offer a professional level of performance and keybed feel, combined with an unusually comprehensive set of features and included software,” said J.C. Sutherland, Product Manager for M-Audio. “All this adds up to one of our most eagerly-awaited new product introductions ever.”
Retail pricing for the Code Series is as follows: Code 25—$299, Code 49—$349, Code 61—$399 – The Code Series is available at M-Audio dealers nationwide.
