Built-in audio interface
The M-Audio ProKeys Sono 88 is not just a high quality keyboard for rehearsals and performances - it's also an excellent recording tool. M-Audio added a 2-in/2-out USB audio interface, complete with an XLR connector for your microphone, RCA inputs for your iPod or other media player for backing tracks, as well as 1/4" stereo jacks for feeding your studio monitors. The built-in interface records at CD-quality 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution. With the Pro Keys Sono 88, all you need is a computer with an available USB connection, and you're ready to go!
A range of instrument sounds including a Steinway grand
At the heart of the M-Audio ProKeys Sono 88 is its stereo-sampled emulation of a Steinway grand piano - one of the most legendary, sought-after instrument sounds on the planet. Other onboard voices include a bright piano, electric piano, clav, strings, and choir. Plus, it's GM compatible with 128 onboard sounds as well as drums and prcussion.
88 semi-weighted, natural-feeling keys
M-Audio made sure that the ProKeys Sono 88 would feel more natural beneath the hands of trained pianists by partially weighting the keys. The result is a response that more closely resembles that of an acoustic piano. Whether rehearsing, performing, or controlling virtual instruments within your favorite software program, the touch of the ProKeys Sono 88 makes it easy to compose and play your favorite pieces fluidly.
Ableton Live Lite recording software
Get started recording and composing straightaway with the ProKeys Sono 88: this keyboard includes a copy of easy-to-use recording software, Ableton Live Lite. Ableton Live is favored by musicians all over to use for its intuitive user interface and for its unique "scene" window that assists in developing and trying out new structures for your songs.
Play it with or without a computer
While the M-Audio ProKeys Sono 88 is an excellent tool for computer-based composition and the wide world of software-based instruments, it's just as at home as an excellent rehearsal tool or as a piano to take to the stage. It can be powered by a traditional 9V power supply and provides outputs for both headphone practice, as well as 1/4" outputs for monitors or your PA system. Whether you're a piano player working in a space-challenged area where noise is an issue - such as a college dorm room or apartment - or, you're just looking for a great-sounding, natural-feeling keyboard you can perform with, the M-Audio ProKeys Sono 88 is up for the task.
