I also have an M-Audio Oxygen 8 and while that has more parameters, I prefer having the extra keys on the 49e and the parameters on the Oxygen 8 really just makes things from confusing in my opinion. All in all, the functions it provides are solid. While I am not a keyboard player by trade, it feels good to play and is easy to control overall. Subscribe to our free newsletter Subscribe. No need for a manual since this thing is literally a piano and nothing more. Nothing is missing if you take into account that the 49e is supposed to be a 49 key midi keyboard. I guess it would be nice if there was a velocity selection.

Yes I understand that this is a very cheap and budget unit, but keyxtation would think that for what we lose in features, we could get some good keys. I suppose though if you are a beginner and you don’t care about the feel, this is a fine studio unit.

I don’t need a power chord. I have no complaints about e499 products durability. This is a really cheap 49 key board. Does anybody else feel the same way?


Although the 49e keeps it basic, what it lacks in knobs it makes up for in what’s important. It’s not like it matters though. Its pretty plasticy but it feels good and for the price i can not complain!

This is truly a product geared toward budget studios. Our members also liked: I don’t need all the crazy knobs that the axioms have and would like one of those with good keys alone.

I’ve used numerous keyboards that have a soft feel which makes the music you create just flow better Or some decent keys. M-audio generally has pretty good drivers.

I didn’t need any frills or crazy controls. This one has none. As easy as one can expect. Just install the driver and plug keystaiton in. Solid enough to not get damaged, unless you try to do something intentionally.

I have used a few other M-audio keyboards like the Axiom series and I must say the key quality and feel m-auduo those is much much better. I need a master keyboard simply to replace the previous dating 15 years I think The price was right so I got one.


I never opened the manual. The keys are simply uncomfortable.

I mean it gets the job done. You get what you pay for. It has everything you need to make music of your choice. m-akdio

Never junked out on me. I guess a good way to sum up my thoughts is that I am upset with the quality but for the price I really don’t feel right complaining.

It has a mod wheel and that’s about it. Any issues I’ve had with them have always been my own error.

The price of the 49e is one of the best parts, as just about anyone can have a great sounding MIDI keyboard rig with this a few virtual instruments at a very reasonable price.
