Win 10 broke my Key Studio 25

Key studio 25 no longer works since I installed Windows 10 on my laptop (formerly win 7). Drivers not available on website. But shouldn't it be plug & play for simple USB MIDI operation?

  • Hello Kate,

    Thanks for posting!

    The KeyStudio is a legacy product with limited support. It was officially supported up to Windows 7. The controller is not class compliant so it will require a driver installation in order to connect however, there are no drivers available that support operating systems past Windows 7.

    In the past, I have seen users connect their legacy hardware to later operating systems using older drivers but this cannot be officially supported as the controller is not supported for use with operating systems later than Windows 7. You can download the last available driver for the KeyStudio from this link:

  • Nick, thanks for your reply. It turns out that plug & play worked with Win10 after all. Possibly my old driver remained installed after I did the upgrade and still worked? The upgrade undid all of the MIDI connections within specific programs--wish I'd thought of that sooner--so I had to restore them one by one, usually using "advanced" MIDI settings to enable a specific channel. Maybe this information will help someone else.
