The 49 keys are velocity sensitive and alongside the paramter controls, you can concentrate on your performance rather then on your mouse. The keys can be split into sections to control multiple instruments at once and the pitch bend and modulation wheels add exrta expression when recording.
Don`t worry if you don`t have enough keys as you can navigate up and down octaves and transpose giving you the full MIDI range. On the QX49 there are 8 rotary encoders, 8 assignable faders, 4 backlit drum pads to produce your own beats, 6 assignable buttons and basic transport control.
The QX49 can transfer MIDI via USB and also through traditional MIDI connections. There is also the option for an additional footswitch (not included) control on the rear.
The QX49 comes shipped with Ableton Live Lite Alesis Edition giving you access to recording and sequencing software straight from the box.
If you fancy more keys at your disposal then check out the Alesis QX61.
*Connection to iOS devices requires an Apple USB adapter, sold separately as part of the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, plus a separate power adapter for Q25, also sold separately.
Alesis strive to produce innovative audio kit for musicians, engineers and producers at all levels and at an aggressive price point.
