Inspiration doesn’t wait for anyone

Say goodbye to time-consuming MIDI mapping, guesswork, and uncaptured inspiration. When the muse strikes, you need to capture your musical ideas quickly and precisely - Keystage allows you to do just that.

Keystage is at the forefront of keyboard innovation, being the first to truly tap into the potential of MIDI 2.0. Simply connect the keyboard to compatible software, and Keystage automatically assigns parameters and even displays their names on its crystal-clear OLED screens. Each screen is paired with a  dedicated knob for real-time adjustments, meaning you always see the parameters assigned and their exact values, empowering you to make informed decisions and act on your musical instincts without breaking your creative stride.

Experience the magic of immediate plug-and-play connectivity with Keystage. It's compatible with most DAWs, and provides unmatched official integration with Ableton Live and Korg Gadget.

Express your -musical- self

Keystage empowers musicians to reach new heights of musical expression.

A newly developed semi-weighted keybed with excellent touch and response provides an immersive playing experience. Keystage goes beyond feel alone, with support for both channel and polyphonic Aftertouch, and MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression). This versatility lets you manipulate a vast array of sources, transmitting nuanced subtleties that add an extra layer of richness to your music and live performances.

Keystage's arpeggiator is extraordinarily powerful and offers features that go well beyond what any other MIDI Keyboard out there has to offer. The vast selection of patterns is complemented with unparalleled customization options including aftertouch-trigged ratchets, randomization, gating, and more.

In addition, Keystage's chord mode benefits from a suite of ready-to-use inspiring 32 chord sets. These can be used out-of-the-box, or fully customized and saved into any of the extra 32 user set slots. Because each set can have one chord assigned to each chromatic note of an octave, you can be sure you won't run out of chords! Chords can even be replayed in different ways, including a strumming mode for realistic guitar-like playing.

Keystage allows you to express your musical self effortlessly thanks to a seamless and streamlined workflow. Gone are the days of dealing with cumbersome and frustrating controllers. Keystage ensures a clean and efficient musical experience.

Official Ableton Live Integration

Keystage offers official integration with Ableton Live, one of the most popular DAWs in the industry, putting both transport and device control at your fingertips. A go-to choice for live performance musicians, Live’s innovative dual Session/Arrangement view, smooth clip triggering, looping, and powerful production tools help you create a top notch live experience.
