Connecting Your Keyboard
Before You Connect:
Before you connect your keyboard, please note: While you can power the keyboard via either USB or optional external power
supply, in order to avoid damaging the unit, use only one method at a time.
Power Connection - USB or External Supply
You can power the keyboard either via USB or using an external power supply. To power via USB:
1. Check that the on/off switch (18) on the back of the unit is set to “Off.”
2 Plug the USB cable provided with the Keystation Pro 88 into a free USB port on your computer.
3. Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB socket on the Keystation Pro 88 (13).
Note: The USB cable not only powers the keyboard, but also sends MIDI data to and from your computer system.
To power using an external supply:
1. Use a power adapter (not included) with the following specifications: 9V DC output, 250-300mA, center positive.
2. Make sure you are not already powering the Keystation Pro 88 via USB, and then simply plug the power supply into the jack
labeled DC 9V (19) and switch the power on (18).
Note: Do not leave the adapter plugged in for long periods of time if the unit is not in use.
MIDI Connection - In and Out Ports
On the rear panel of the keyboard you will find a MIDI Out port (14) that you can connect to an external sound module or MIDI
keyboard. By default (when you switch the unit on), all controller data is sent out via the MIDI Out and the USB Out simultaneously.
If you want the MIDI Out to function as a traditional USB-to-MIDI interface, engage the “MIDI Out from USB” mode by pressing dual
function buttons (PROGRAM and DATA LSB) labeled for this action. This is further explained in Advanced User Guide. The MIDI In port
(15) can be used to connect external MIDI devices to the PC. The MIDI In port acts as a USB-to-MIDI interface.
Both the MIDI In and MIDI Out ports and their functions are further explained in the Advanced User Guide.

The Keystation Pro 88 and Your Software
Most software applications have a MIDI In indicator. Check that MIDI data is being received by the software application by pressing
any key on the keyboard. If the software receives no MIDI data, check that the Keystation Pro 88’s USB driver has been selected as
a MIDI input for your software application. The Keystation Pro 88 will be recognized as a “USB Audio Device” in Windows XP and as
“Keystation Pro 88” in all other operating systems. The procedure to check the MIDI input device in your software will differ from one
program to another, so please refer to the documentation provided with your software.
Setting the Global MIDI Channel
The Keystation Pro 88 can transmit MIDI data on any of the standard 16 MIDI channels. If you are using a computer-based music
system, the software usually controls the routing of MIDI signals and you should not have to configure this manually.
If you are using a MIDI sound module or are connecting to another piece of external MIDI equipment, you will need to verify that
both your Keystation Pro 88 and the receiving external MIDI unit are set to the same MIDI channel. The Global MIDI Channel affects
the keyboard, Program and Bank Changes as well as any other external controllers that have been set to respond to the Global
Channel setting.
To set the Global MIDI Channel:
1.
Press GLOBAL CHANNEL Button (6).
The LCD will display the KEYBOARD and CHAN symbol. The 3-digit display will show the currently selected global channel, preceded
by a “c.”
2.
Type in the MIDI channel number (01-16) using the numeric keypad or the +/- keys.
Setting the Keyboard Velocity Curve
Once you have configured the Keystation Pro 88 with your software application, you may want to adjust the way the keyboard
responds to your individual playing style. The velocity curve determines the relationship between how hard or soft the keys are struck
and the corresponding velocity that the unit transmits.
We have designed nine new velocity curves for the Keystation Pro 88 ranging from the ultra dynamic to more constant velocity values.
To change the velocity curve:
1. Press VELOCITY CURVE (7).
2. Use the numeric keypad or the +/- keys to select a different curve (4).
Recalling Presets
Once you have verified that your software is receiving data from the keyboard, it’s time to begin exploring the keyboard and try some
of the 10 factory-programmed presets.
1.
Press the function key labeled RECALL (6).

2. Type in the number of the preset you want using the numerical keypad (3).
The following is a list of the presets contained in the 10 memory locations.
To further expand the power of the presets, we have included Evolution Librarian for PC users. This software allows you to save and
load presets into your Keystation Pro 88. For more information on this software, please refer to the Evolution Librarian section in the
Advanced Users Guide and www.m-audio.com or www.evolution.com for future software developments.
Keystation Pro 88 Overview
Keystation Pro 88 is a USB MIDI controller keyboard with 9 faders (10), 24 rotary controls (11), and 22 MIDI buttons (12). It also offers
Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheels (2), two foot pedal inputs (16), and an expression pedal (17), offering a total of 60 assignable
controllers. All of these controllers are MIDI assignable and respond to multiple MIDI messages including CC, RPN/NRPN, Program,
Bank LSB, Bank MSB and GM/GM2/XG SysEx Messages.
There are also 9 function buttons for programming (6, 7), octave/transpose buttons (8), Zone buttons for segmenting the keyboard
(9), and a blue backlit LCD screen (5) that gives you clearly visible information regarding current operations, programming and
controller status.
Octave
You can shift the entire keyboard up or down 3 octaves in either direction with the Octave Up/Down buttons. This will give you access
to a total of 11 octaves on the Keystation Pro 88.
1. Press OCTAVE + (8) for every octave you want to shift the keyboard up.
2. Press OCTAVE – (8) for every octave you want to shift the keyboard down.
Transpose
The Octave Up/Down buttons have a dual function that will allow you to transpose the keyboard. This will let you change the key of
the music you are playing without changing the fingering of the notes.
1. Press TRANSPOSE (OCTAVE + and OCTAVE - at the same time) (8).
2. Press the OCTAVE + or - key (8) for every semi tone you want to transpose up or down.
For example, you may have learned to play a piece of music in the key of C. To play that same piece of music in F you would need
to press the TRANSPOSE buttons followed by 5 presses on the OCTAVE + button or 7 presses on the OCTAVE - button.
Pitch Bend Wheel
The Pitch Bend Wheel (2) is primarily used to “bend” the notes played on the keyboard, up or down (higher or lower). This allows you
to play phrases not normally associated with keyboard playing, including guitar-style riffs.
Your sound source determines how far you can bend the note with the Pitch Bend Wheel. Typically this is set to 2 semitones up or
down, but it can also be set up to 2 octaves up or down.
The Pitch Bend on your Keystation Pro 88 has an even wider scope. Not only is it completely MIDI assignable (as are all the controllers
on your Keystation Pro 88) but it can also have a different MIDI assignment for each zone.
To learn more about this function please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.
Modulation Wheel
This type of real-time controller was originally introduced on electronic keyboards and synthesizers. The Modulation Wheel (2) is
typically used for modulation of the sound you are playing. Modulation provides the means for a performer to add vibrato to the
instrument sound they are playing to mimic the nuances of an acoustic instrument.
As with the Pitch Bend Wheel, the Modulation Wheel is completely MIDI assignable, and can have a different MIDI assignment for each zone.
To learn more about this function please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.

Sustain and Expression Foot Pedals
You can plug a foot pedal of any polarity (not included) into the two sustain pedal inputs (16) on the back of the Keystation Pro 88.
The foot pedal is normally used for sustaining the sound you are playing while removing your hands from the keys. The keyboard
will automatically detect the correct polarity of the foot pedal upon power up. If you want to reverse the polarity of the foot pedal,
press the pedal as you are turning on your keyboard.
Each sustain foot pedal can be programmed to send out MIDI notes. This will allow you to trigger samples on different MIDI
channels without removing your hands from the keyboard. This also permits program changes or changes to any “Note On” event
MIDI message.
Also located on the back panel of the Keystation Pro 88 is a volume pedal input (17) that allows you to plug in an expression pedal
(not included). The expression pedal is normally used to change the volume of the instrument you are playing.
Similar to the two sustain foot pedals (16), the expression pedal (17) can be assigned to control pan, pitch bend sensitivity, tuning,
portamento, or any other MIDI message that can be sent from the nine assignable faders or 24 rotary dials. The two sustain foot
pedals and the expression pedal can have a different MIDI assignment for each zone.
To learn more about this function please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.
Saving and Organizing Presets
Once you have familiarized yourself with the Keystation Pro 88’s presets, you may want to save and reorganize them. Please note
that the factory presets are stored in ROM within the keyboard and can therefore be restored at any time.
To rearrange the presets use the following procedure:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Press the function button (7) RECALL.
Type the preset number on the numerical keypad (3).
Press the function button (6) STORE.
Using they numerical keypad (3), enter in the preset memory number that you wish to store the preset to.
If you want the Keystation Pro 88 to revert back to the factory defaults, simply hold down the “+/-” buttons while switching the
keyboard on.
Zones
The Zone feature can be used to create up to four keyboards in one by splitting the keyboard into sections. Using Zone Edit Mode,
you can assign each Zone an upper key limit and a lower key limit to specify which section of the keyboard should be assigned to
a specific zone. To learn more about this function please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.
The Channel of a Zone
The Zones of the Keystation Pro 88 can transmit data on different MIDI channels. You may have up to 4 different zones enabled at
a time. Each range can be set to a different MIDI channel. For instance, you can set a two-octave zone at the bottom for bass
transmitting on MIDI channel 1, and a Rhodes keyboard in the upper octaves transmitting on MIDI channel 2.
To assign the channel of a Zone:
1. Press the Global Channel button twice
2. Press the Zone Select button (9), and select a Zone. The LCD will flash the selected zone.
3. Enter the channel number, “00” to “16,” for the Zone you selected by using the numeric keypad.
Zone Range
You can split the Keystation Pro 88 into a maximum of four Zones by limiting the range of each Zone. Zones may be discrete areas
of the keyboard or they can overlap.
To change the range of Zone 1, press the ZONE RANGE button. You will see “ZONE 1” flashing on the LCD display, which indicates
that you are editing Zone 1’s range. Press the lowermost key on the keyboard, followed by the uppermost key. Now Zone 1’s range
covers the entire keyboard. Alternatively, you may select two different keys to demarcate the Zone of your choice.
To learn more about this function please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.

Sending a Snap Shot
The Snap Shot feature sends out real-time MIDI data for each controller (on whichever MIDI channel the controller is assigned to),
providing a “snap shot” of the settings for each hardware controller to the software parameter it is assigned to.
When you send a Snap Shot, the LCD will display “SNAPSHOT.” The data for each individual controller will then transmit on the channel
that the controller has been assigned to. The parameters of the receiving software should change to mimic the adjustments that
were made on the keyboard. Snap Shot is an excellent way to synchronize the receiving device with the faders and rotary controllers
on your keyboard.
To send a Snap Shot of the current controller assignments and their values, press the +/- buttons (4) together.
When the Snap Shot function is used, the LCD displays a camera symbol.
The Snap Shot function can also be used as a creative tool, with interesting and surprising results. It can also be used in conjunction
with the Control Mute function explained later in this guide.
Draw Bar Mode
When the Keystation Pro 88 is in Draw Bar Mode, the faders of the keyboard reverse so that 0 is at the top of the faders while 127 is
at the bottom. (The default setting of the keyboard is 127 at the top and 0 at the bottom.)
To engage Draw Bar Mode:
1. Press the dual press function buttons (7) (CHANNEL ASSIGN + CONTROLLER ASSIGN) labeled DRAW BAR.
When the Draw Bar mode is engaged, the LCD display displays the below fader symbol.
Press the Channel Assign and Controller Assign buttons to disengage Draw Bar Mode.
Muting Controllers
The Control Mute feature allows you to alter the position of any fader or rotary controller without affecting the settings of your
software. Control Mute does not affect any buttons, the foot switch or the keyboard. When Control Mute is engaged and an
assignable button, a function key or the keyboard is pressed, the controllers are turned back on and Control Mute disengaged. While
Control Mute is engaged, the LCD display reads “Off”.
To mute all faders and rotary controllers, press the dual-press function buttons (DATA LSB + DATA MSB) labeled “CTRL MUTE” (7).
This is a very useful feature if you are switching between presets and the controllers are out of position. This will allow the controller
to be moved to a position relative to the software's controller value, rather than causing the software's controller value to jump.
You can also use this feature for creative mixing. If you use the faders for a conventional volume mixer, try engaging the Controller
Mute function, change the volume up or down on certain channels and press the Snap Shot buttons. This will send your changes, in
real time, to the software. This form of mixing is very dynamic and cannot be accomplished with a conventional mixer.
Program Changes
You can send a Program Change message to your sound card, sound module, instrument or any other device that receives standard
MIDI messages.
To send a Program Change on the Global MIDI Channel:
1. Press the “Program” button (6).
2. Type in the program number you wish to send, using the numerical keypad or the +/- keys (3 or 4).
10
KSPro88-GS-JEFIGS.qxd

2:41 PM
Page 11
For example, the LCD displays the “PROG” symbol in the right hand corner, indicating that the PROGRAM button has been pressed.
The Program value sent on Global MIDI Channel 01 is 00.
You can also program the assignable buttons to send out fixed Program messages to individual MIDI channels.
To learn more about this function, please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.
Bank Changes
If your receiving device has more than 128 programs, you may be able to access the additional banks by sending out Bank Change
LSB (Least Significant Bit) and MSB (Most Significant Bit) Messages.
To send LSB and MSB Messages:
1. Press the DATA LSB or DATA MSB button (6).
2. Type in the Bank Number you wish to send, using the numerical keypad or the +/- keys (3).
Please check the documentation for your receiving device to ensure that it will respond to these messages.
To learn more about this function please read the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced User Guide.
Editing MIDI Controllers
Selecting a controller for editing
To select one of the Keystation Pro 88 faders or rotary dials for editing, simply move the controller you wish to select. Initially, the LCD
display will show the positional value for that controller. Once you have stopped moving the controller and approximately three
seconds have passed, the LCD screen will show two numerical values. The small two-digit number in the lower left corner of the LCD
represents the number of the controller you have selected. The large three-digit display will show the controller number that specific
controller is assigned to.
Assigning MIDI CCs to a controller:
1.
Press “Control Assign.” The LCD will flash the CC symbol.
The 3-digit display will indicate the currently assigned MIDI CC number.
2. Enter a new MIDI CC value using the numeric keypad or “+” and “-” buttons.
The MIDI controller number you select will be assigned to the currently selected controller, shown by the number on the small twodigit display.
Please see the “Programming and Editing” section in the Advanced Guide for further information.

Trouble-Shooting
My M-Audio hardware suddenly stopped working after having performed fine since installation.
Switch off the unit and leave for 10 seconds. Then restart your computer and try again. If the problem persists you may have to reinstall drivers for the unit.
My drivers are listed in the Device Manager and are said to be working, but the keyboard is not recognized in any software.
Windows 2000 and XP have a limitation to how many MIDI device drivers you can have installed at one time. However, the computer
will not give any indication that you are using the maximum number of drivers and the drivers will install as if there is not a problem.
To remedy this, go to the driver download section of our website at http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support.drivers and
download the MIDIFix utility.
I have plugged a sustain pedal into my M-Audio keyboard, but it works the wrong way around.
The polarity of the sustain pedal is calculated by the keyboard when it is powered up. On power up, the sustain pedal is assumed to be
in the off position. If you want the sustain pedal to be off when it is not pressed, make sure the pedal is not pressed when you power up.
When I press a key, there is a delay before I hear any sound.
This delay is known as latency. Latency with MIDI signals occurs as a result of the softsynth you are using. MIDI data is simply control
data that is read by a softsynth, which must complete a large number of complex calculations in order to produce the sound you
hear. This process takes time.
If you are experiencing a noticeable delay between playing a note and hearing it, you are most likely using a software-based
synthesizer and outputting audio through an audio card that is currently running on a less efficient driver. Try switching to the ASIO
driver for your sound card. If your sound card allows you to adjust the buffer settings, lower them until the latency is acceptable.
Caution: Electrostatic Discharge, Electrical Fast Transient and Conducted RF interference may cause the unit to
malfunction. In the case of such an occurrence, unplug the unit and plug in again to restore normal operation.
