The M-Audio Code 61’s semi-weighted keybed is first-class; professional all the way. Designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral, these keys communicate musical expression to your DAW with an efficacy you never thought possible. That’s always been the challenge with MIDI and computer-based music creation – and the Code 61 attacks it head-on. Of course, no pro keyboard controller is complete without aftertouch, and the Code 61 has it. So go ahead and lean into the last note of that smokin’ lead line and give it some tasty vibrato.
In addition to the superb keyboard, the M-Audio Code 61’s multi-function, backlit drum pads let you roll beats, warp arpeggios, launch clips in Ableton, and curb the potential for mayhem that lurks beneath the surface of every complex DAW setup. Code 61’s controls offer Mackie Control and HUI modes, and the buttons are assignable to macro ASCII commands, letting you use your favorite DAW macros at the push of a button.
And you can mix and match modes – the XY pad, for instance, can concurrently run Mackie Control on one axis, and HUI on the other! With immediate access to your DAW’s transport, mixer, and plug-ins, you’ll enjoy increased productivity and focus, resulting in better music. And that’s something we can all get behind.
