  • Hey thomas,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Keystation is class compliant so you will not need to install any drivers in order to use it with your computer. If you want to connect the Keystation 88 to a computer, all you will need is a USB cable.

    If you want to connect the Keystation to an external MIDI sound module, you can use a standard 5-pin MIDI DIN cable. You can power the Keystation with a 9V DC, 200mA, center-positive power adapter if you are not connecting it to a computer via USB.

    You can also connect a 1/4" momentary footswitch to the sustain pedal input and a 1/4" TRS expression pedal into the volume pedal input for further control.

    I hope that helps you! Let me know if you have any questions.

    • Of course, a laptop's just fine! Just connect it to a USB port and you're all set!

  • Hello - I just bought a Keystation Pro 88 and none of my daws will have it play sound I KNOW I am doing something wrong, as I am brand new to this. I use Ableton 9.5 or Studio One 4. Keystation Pro 88 shows up as an option for input, but no sound when I touch the keys, and have an instrument pulled up, can anyone help me please? thank you so much.
