    Product Information

    Musicians, composers and producers looking for the ultimate in creative control merged with a faultless, natural response and a real piano feel - this is the controller you have been waiting for. Introducing the Hammer 88 Pro from M-Audio.

    This new M-Audio controller is created for musicians everywhere that want real piano feel, onboard software controls, and precision playing options for fast and fun music creation, right out of the box. The M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro provides everything a music producer needs that no other full-sized controller offers in this price range, solidifying the M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro as the next industry standard in 88-key keyboard controllers.

    The Hammer 88 Pro gives you all the options you need to control whatever music creation software you choose. The top panel includes 16 RGB velocity-sensitive pads with Note Repeat, 9 assignable faders and 8 assignable knobs to control your audio software. Hammer 88 Pro also includes an intuitive OLED screen that makes it easy to search for and test sounds, map controls, and mix and edit your sessions. On the back panel you will find 5-pin MIDI IN and Out connections, (1) footswitch and (3) expression pedal inputs, for all the connections you need.

    M-Audio has upgraded the keybed for the Hammer 88 Pro with graded hammer action keys. These “graded” keys are individually weighted, mimicking the feeling of an acoustic piano. This grading makes playing any music style feel ultra-realistic with a natural response and lets the user easily express the emotion in their music. The Hammer 88 Pro’s custom keybed also features Assignable Aftertouch enabling you to affect the sound of a virtual instrument plugin by continuously scanning how much pressure you apply to any key even after initially pressing it.

    Hammer 88 Pro features M-Audio’s brand-new Smart Chord and Smart Scale technology. Smart Chord lets the user play full chords with the press of a single key. Smart Scale enables the user to set the keybed so that only notes in the selected scale are able to be played. This allows you to play within a chosen scale without the risk of playing any “wrong” notes and helps make creating music faster and easier than ever before.

    Built into the Hammer 88 Pro are features that are essential to creating modern day music on any computer or DAW. At the top of this list is Auto-Mapping, which instantly maps the Hammer 88 Pro to many popular DAWs such as Pro Tools, MPC Beats, Cubase, Logic, Studio One and Fruity Loops, plus the virtual instruments that are included with the Hammer 88 Pro. The built-in Arpeggiator will affect anything you are playing on the keys from any virtual instrument in your DAW. This powerful tool can operate in Latch or Momentary mode, making it easy to match your style.

    The Hammer 88 Pro includes Ableton Live Lite, Mini Grand, Velvet, Hybrid 3, Touch Loops, and MPC Beats with TubeSynth, Electric, and Bassline virtual instruments, 80 FX plugins including AIR Channel Strip and Half Time, as well as 2GB of factory content with bonus F9 instruments library.
