Keystation 61 II also has 1/4″ sustain pedal input
The next generation M-Audio Keystation 61 is a simple and powerful keyboard controller that lets you make music and play virtual instruments with your Mac or PC computer. It offers the user a wide range of possibilities with 61 full-size velocity sensitive keys and special buttons that allow you to control your DAW programs and change the octaves you can play.
With octave keys, pitch-bend and modulation wheels, transport and direction keys, you can easily control your music software without touching your computer. You can get real piano sustain by attaching a sustain pedal like the M-Audio SP-2 here.
