Introduction Congratulations on your purchase of the M-Audio Keystation 49e, a 49-note full-size, velocity sensitive USB keyboard designed for easy integration with your PC or Macintosh computer. Ideal for a multitude of music creation and education applications, Keystation 49e offers you modulation and pitch bend wheels, plus assignable buttons and a slider for hands on control.
2. Plug the USB cable provided with the Keystation 49e keyboard to a free USB port on your computer. 3. Plug the other end of the USB cable to the USB input on the Keystation 49e. The single USB cable not only powers the keyboard but also sends MIDI data to and from your computer system.

1. Power up your PC. 2. Insert the Keystation 49e Installer CD-ROM. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer to locate your CD ROM drive. Click on the folder labeled Keystation 49e. 3. Open the Keystation 49e folder and click on the installer icon.
C. Each octave is given a number. The Keystation 49e is able to shift the pitch of it’s keys up or down by one or more octaves. When the keyboard’s octaves are not shifted (octave shift set to 0), the lights above both the octave “+”...
You can plug any polarity foot pedal (not included) in to the foot switch input on your M-Audio keyboard. The keyboard will automatically detect the correct polarity when powering up. If you want to reverse the polarity, just make sure the pedal is pressed when you switch on your keyboard.
The Advanced Function Button The button to the left of the keys labeled “Advanced Functions” is used to access all the remaining (‘advanced’) functions of the keyboard. When this button is pressed, the keyboard will go into “Edit Mode.” While in Edit Mode, the keys on the keyboard can be used to select functions and enter data.
Octave Shift The Octave “+” And “-” Keys Another method of shifting the Keystation 49e’s octaves is with the use of the keys labeled octave “+” and “-“. After the Advanced Function button has been pressed, placing the keyboard is in Edit Mode, pressing these keys will shift the keyboards pitch up or down one or more octaves (one for time each pressed).
case, is a good idea to try reducing the pitch by one or two semitones.* This is achieved using a MIDI function called “Transpose.” Transpose works in the same way as Octave Shift above, except the shift is +/- 12. As with Octave Shift, there are two ways of transposing the keyboard.
Program Changes is limited to 128. Since some devices have more than 128 voices, they require a different method to access these extra voices. Generally, these devices use Bank LSB and Bank MSB messages, The Keystation 49e can accomplish these changes in two ways and they aredesccribed following: 1.
Bank with a negative value. Pressing both the “+” and “-” buttons together will recall Bank 0. The other controller devices on the Keystation 49e can also be used to control advanced functions, as described following: The Modulation Wheel It is possible to assign MIDI effects to the Modulation Wheel.
(Note that each time the keyboard is turned off the data assigned to the Modulation Wheel will be lost. Each time the keyboard is powered up, the modulation Wheel will default to being assigned to Modulation, effect number 01.) As an example, let’s assign effect number 10 to the modulation wheel. This means the modulation wheel will control the Pan (or balance).
The keyboard is now able to send data received from the computer out of its MIDI OUT jack to whatever device is connected. You need to select the Keystation 49e USB MIDI Out as the MIDI output device in your sequencer to use the MIDI output.
If the problem persists you may have to re- install drivers for the unit. Problem 2: I have plugged in a sustain pedal into my M-Audio keyboard, but it works the wrong way around. Solution 2: The polarity of the sustain pedal is calculated by the keyboard when it is powered up.
