Evolution MK-461C

The MK-461C is the Evolution flagship model featuring 9 assignable 35mm faders, 12 assignable rotary knobs, 10 assignable buttons and 61 full-size touch sensitive keys, giving computer music enthusiasts the extreme hands-on control needed for their software and hardware.

Even the pitch bend and modulation wheels are both fully assignable, as is the foot switch socket. This is ideal for punch in/out recording or activating record without having to take the hands off the keyboard. All in all, this adds up to an incredible 34 assignable controllers.

A unique controller mute function mutes the output of all controllers allowing you to position them before tweaking, so no more annoying jumping filters or levels during your performance. Plus, it's great for killing tracks/effects then slamming them back in.

They have also added a drawbar mode for the 9 faders. For the classic drawbar organ enthusiast, this really adds an important touch to the experience of playing instruments such as NI B4. Ten pre-configured presets are included with the MK-461C, making it instantly usable with the most popular plug-ins, virtual instruments and host applications. Creating your own custom made setups is quick and easy. All of the 34 real-time controllers can be programmed with the numerical keypad which, combined with the backlit LCD display, makes it a breeze. Each controller can also be setup to transmit on separate MIDI channels and complete setups can be stored in any of the 10 memory locations for recalling at any time.

In addition to standard controller numbers, the MK-461C has RPN/NRPN and pre-programmed Sys-Ex messages, for real-time access to parameters beyond immediate reach on products such as SoundBlaster, XG and GM compatible soundcards. The Sys-Ex dump command allows the entire content of the memory to be sent from the keyboard and a librarian program for PC users is included for saving, editing and sharing keyboard setups.

The MK-461C connects to a PC or Mac using the included USB cable. The keyboard is even powered via USB, or alternatively with an optional power supply. As with all Evolution controllers, the MK-461C is Class compliant, so no drivers are required hen using Windows XP or Mac OS X.

The conventional MIDI output on the back of the keyboard has been included for operation with a traditional MIDI gear or non-USB computer setups. Used in USB mode, the MIDI output acts as a USB to MIDI output interface.
