Product overview

• 25 note keyboard for melodic control of most MIDI hardware and software
• USB connectivity allows compatibility with your PC or Mac
• MIDI functionality allows use with a wide range of virtual instruments
• Pitch bend, modulation and octave controls give you maximum flexibility
• Ableton Live Lite Alesis Edition included for recording, sequencing and performing

How many octaves does this keyboard give me?
This keyboard comes with 25 keys which gives you two full octaves as well as an extra note. The octave control allows you to go higher and lower on the octave scale.

What does this keyboard sound like?
25 velocity sensitive keys and series of controls present you with the ability to create whatever music you desire. Pitch bend allows you to manipulate the notes you are playing by raising and lowering the pitch. Modulation control allows for fine and accurate adjustments to the pitch, enabling you to make complex adjustments to the output. Octave controls let you shift the sound up and down the octave scale, expanding the range of keys at your fingertips.

What can I connect to this keyboard?
This keyboard has a single connection for power and computer connectivity. If you are using the keyboard with your computer you only need to connect it to the computer’s USB port. However, when using the keyboard with an iPad you will need a powered USB hub (sold separately). There is a MIDI connection, which gives you the ability to connect to items such as an external sound module. The keyboard also has an input which will allow you to connect to a sustain pedal, giving you the ability to hold a note.

What does the arpeggiator function do?
An arpeggiator allows you to play complex synthesised sounds by just using simple chords. To do this, the keyboard listens to the notes being played and creates a pattern, played at a set master tempo to give you that electronic, synth sound, without the need for expensive equipment. This allows you to roll back the years to the electro-pop sound of the 1980’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Piece Of Kit! Bought this to take my amateur music production to the next level and I can tell you I am amazed! Although this piece of kit only has 24 keys it doesn't limit what you can accomplish. Its definitely not for performing complex pieces live but is great for recording midi. I found it really easy to grasp and super user friendly and works well with Garage Band on the Mac which is the software I'm more familiar with (To get the drums to work better on the pads on GarageBand Hold down the programme key and select the second top pad) The keys are slightly smaller than on an actual piano which makes the whole thing much more portable and makes creating melodies a lot easier too! The drum pads are really sensitive so don't require pushing in but actually just tapping, the velocity sensitivity is also fantastic (for the keys too) Also having the modulation and pitchbend on a joystick makes it easy to use and mess about with. I've only really skimmed the surface with this piece of tech and would fully recommend it to any new song writers and producers! Very happy with the product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little number I've only had this a few weeks, but I'm already burning the midnight oils laying down beats. Very easy to use and highly addictive!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overly complex installation Very capable kit, but way too complicated to set up - so complicated that I wouldn’t recommend it to novices.

Hi, I'm not up on these at all-do they work straight out of the box? What software/accessories do I need to gig with this? Thanks!

Asked by: Andy
The item will need to be connected to a PC then speakers to work/produce a sound this is done via software and is provided with some trial software to use. What you would need to gig with the item is something you would be responsible for working out we can only tell you about the item.
