More Control

Just about everything onthe Evolution MK-449C is an assignable controller-including knobs, faders, buttons, pitch wheel, mod wheel, and sustain pedal input. You can even trigger specific MIDI notes from assigned buttons.


More Playability

One touch of the MK-449C's smooth, solid action will tell you that Evolution hasn't forgotten that keyboards are also meant to be played. 12 different velocity curves let you choose the response that's perfect for your touch. The MK-449C's slide controls are high-quality Alps faders.


More Performance/Programming Features

Program while you play using the MK-449C's unique keypad entry method-complete with dedicated function buttons, inc/dec controls and 10 memory presets. Organ Drawbar mode reverses the faders to respond just like the real thing. Controller Mute allows you to preadjust controller positions without sending data, then use Snapshot to send all current settings at once.


More Intuitive
