M-Audio Keystation 88 Mk3 Test

M-Audio Keystation 88 Mk3 Test

A couple of months ago I was sent the M-Audio Keystation Mk3 to review and was so impressed that I ended up buying one for gigs!

In the video above is a quick comparison of the Keystation alongside the Yamaha P115 so that you can hear the difference (or similarities) in velocity.

CME XKey Touch Sensitiviy Test

CME XKey Touch Sensitiviy Test

Been wanting to get a few more kit videos on my YouTube channel so here we go, starting 2021 off as I mean to go on! I was fascinated by the CME Xkey when I first saw it and it’s been a really fun part of my setup since getting one. Great for taking out on the road, it’s touch sensitive, transmits aftertouch and lets you add sustain and expression pedals – not bad for such a tiny piece of kit! It takes some getting used to but has been really valuable for quickly getting ideas down when I’m not in the studio. The video above is a quick test on the level of the expressiveness using one of my favourite piano sounds and I think it performed pretty well.

CME Xkey Controller Keyboard

Is this the world’s most portable keyboard? I first saw the Xkey online a few months ago and was dying to try one out. Since first spotting it, I’ve launched a keyboard website and have now had the pleasure of trying and reviewing it. Absolutely love the portability of this keyboard and am really excited about checking out the new bluetooth version hooked up to my iphone apps! Here’s a little of what it does, more videos to follow 🙂
