Keystation 88 MK3 features 88 natural-feeling, full-size velocity-sensitive keys in a compact, rugged design, perfect for any musician creating music at home or on the go.

Fort Lauderdale, FL US (September 15, 2020) — M-Audio (m-audio.com), synonymous with innovative music production technology, today announced the introduction and immediate availability of their new Keystation 88 MK3 USB/MIDI keyboard controller. This new addition to the best-selling Keystation family brings 88 velocity-sensitive keys and comprehensive controls that expand the range of playable notes, expressive capabilities, and enhance the player’s recording workflow, all in a lightweight, gig-ready package.

Keystation 88 MK3 includes octave range buttons, pitch-bend and modulation controls, and a volume control to play, perform and record with music software without requiring a mouse or trackpad. It also features transport controls and a 1⁄4-inch (6.3mm) sustain pedal input to use an external control pedal, such as the M-Audio SP2 (sold separately), for genuine piano sustain. The Keystation 88 MK3 adds 5-pin MIDI output and semi-weighted keys as a step-up from the Keystation Mini 32 MK3 and Keystation 49 MK3.
