Get a Grip
The pitch bend/modulation wheels and the fader cap have a rubberised coating that provides additional grip, minimising the chance of performers losing their grip. They look great and feel great on the fingertips too.
By default, two buttons below the LED display operate as octave shift buttons -/+ extending the range of the keyboard 4 octaves up and 3 octaves down. The buttons can in addition be assigned to control Transpose, Program Change or MIDI Channel providing a total of 4 options. Press the two buttons at the same time, then scroll through the options using the - or + button until you have found the one you want.
Masterkey 61 is easy to connect. One USB cable handles data transfer to your computer and also provides the power. It's also USB class compliant, so driver installation is not needed. All you have to do is switch the power button to On! An input jack is also available for an optional sustain pedal. Masterkey 61 automatically detects the polarity of the footswitch you connect, so any standard pedal can be used.
Assigning Controllers and Edit
Masterkey 61 would not be a controller keyboard without its real-time controls and the ability to assign MIDI CC's to each of them. Thanks to the LED display it's easy too. Once in Edit mode, pressing the black keys will show the various menu options. No need to refer to the manual or a keyboard chart, it's all there in the display. Select the key for assigning MIDI CC's and type in the number. It's that easy.
