M-Audio Keyboard 49e disfunctions after some time

I have an m-audio 49e keystation that works perfectly fine with my laptop .. until it suddenly becomes undetectable. I could be doing anything - playing on the keyboard, recording midi, or not even touching it; and after a while it will just 'disappear' and no sound will play from it anymore. The lights on the keyboard is still on, but it just remains undetected. Then even if i take it out from the USB port and put it back in, or restart my sequencing software(s), it remains undetected. I have to restart the WHOLE computer for it to be accessible again. The time it takes for the keyboard to stop functioning varies very widely - sometimes it could stop detection after just 5 seconds of opening my sequencing software, sometimes 10 minutes, sometimes even after an hour.

Please help me. It is really hard for me to do work fast when i keep having to restart the computer.

Sounds like it might be a power supply issue. Unless it is mains powered.

Try removing all other USB devised. If that doesn't work its worth try a Mains Powered USB hub.

The keyboard was working fine and all of a sudden stopped making sounds. I must have pressed a button.


I've never heard of a keyboard making sounds. I have heard of key presses making sounds. In the control panel under keyboard there may be a setting. The setting may also be under sound or audio (depends on the operating system).

Hi, I just bought a used M-audio Keystation pro 88. I'm using pro tools 8 on a Macbook Pro, 10.6.4. The LCD screen is hardly veiwable, and from the angle I can see it, some of the parts of numbers are...


Not sure that this info will be of use to you, and i have not tried this on any keyboard, but i had a similar experience with a scale that has a digital display. When i took the thing apart to change its battery i found that the display was actually like a piece of glass. On one edge was a rubber like strip that was the interface between the display and the circuit board. This piece was not seated well against the display part and so the information from the circuit board was only partially making it to the display causing the same sort of result that you describe that you see with the keyboard. You may be able to open up your board and just fiddle with the parts, put it back together and it might start working for you. I had to sort of shim the display with a thin piece of material to get the display to maintain better contact with the rubber strip part. Hopefully, this info will be useful. Good luck!

Oxygen 8 Recognized but not working in OSX


i read somewhere, and it worked for me, at least in logic, that when i plugged it into a usb powered hub, it showed up in the audio/midi setup as a keystation and logic accepted its input..... when i had it plugged into the cpu direct (w/o hub) it was useless.... hope this helps....

You can order both boards from our repairs department and return the one that is not needed. The main board goes for $20 and the velocity board for $14. 626-610-2529, Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm Pacific Time."

I just found this in the M-Audio forums. I've just called the number and left a message at M-Audio requesting a callback. I'm really hoping that tech support will have a solution for whatever is causing this malfuntion. . . I'll post here again when the parts come.

Notes that won't sound


Try to reset the keyboard. Locate the numberpad on the Keystation Pro 88, press and hold down the + & - buttons while powering on the device. This will reset the device but any stored presets will be lost. I hope this helps...more information can be found on M-Audio's website.

Youve gone through the settings to make sure it is sending and your computer is receiving on the same midi channel?
