Novation X-Station 25 Audio MIDI controller keyboard 2-Octave Combined Audio / MIDI Controller with on-baord Poly Synth and FX
The X-STATION combines a Novation-class Synthesizer, an audio solution, MIDI remote controller, MIDI interface and a multi-effects processor

SUPERB KEYBOARD IN THREE SIZES : The keyboard employs a premium-class mechanism with semi-weighted keys and aftertouch. Even if you're not a trained piano player you will instantly feel the difference! Aftertouch, a joystick and the assignable X/Y touch pad controller provide you with extra dimensions of expression for your performances. What's more, X-STATION comes in three sizes: 25, 49 and 61 keys - your choice of ultimately portable or plenty of keys! All models may be run off batteries, power supply or USB*.
* The USB bus must be able to supply the required amount of current in order to power the X-Station. Please verify that your computer provides enough power.
External Power supply sold seperatly (Standard ‘Centre Positive’ 9V D.C. 600mA)

AUDIO AND MIDI SOLUTION: X-STATION includes a fully featured audio interface with two phantom-powered, hi-quality converters, two Neutrik™ combined XLR and jack sockets, digital S/PDIF out, and much more. Dedicated headphone and monitoring connections with separate controls even allow you to work without a mixer. What's more, the onboard DSP effects processor provides instant, zero-latency multi-effects for monitoring or recording applications. Each audio channel has its own effects chain. You can even record audio with effects on one channel - and use the synthesizer on the second at the same time!

HARDWARE SYNTHESIZER: A fully featured NOVATION-class hardware synthesizer also runs on the unique X-STATION hardware thanks to its powerful DSP processor! The 3-oscillator virtual analog synthesizer is based on the renowned Novation KS-series and is 8-voice polyphonic. The extensive control interface provides instant access to all key parameters, making it ideal for live performances. And forget cables - the synthesizer is fully integrated: The stereo audio output is sent straight through the USB cable onto the track in your sequencer via ASIO.
