Alesis has updated its keyboard controller offering with the new Q61, QX61 and QX25 models.
Each Q-series USB MIDI controller connects easily to Mac, PC, iOS devices and traditional MIDI hardware modules, samplers and synthesizers.
The Q61 is a 61-note keyboard controller that works with virtually any music software and MIDI hardware devices. With velocity-sensitive keys, the Q61 offers a five-octave range in a sleek, portable controller, built for the studio or stage. An array of essential controls are onboard, including pitch and modulation wheels, octave up and down buttons, an assignable data slider and the ability to send program changes from the keys.
The QX25 (pictured) and QX61 are 25-note and 61-note keyboard controllers enable musicians to punch out a drumbeat, open up a filter, or adjust volume and playback of sequencing software. The QX25 and QX61 bring accurate parameter control and velocity-sensitive keyboards.
Whether the user is looking to trigger drum samples, tweak a software synthesizer or adjust individual tracks in a mix, the QX25 and QX61's extensive layouts ensure appropriate feel and proper response thanks to their eight sliders and rotary knobs, four backlit drum pads and dedicated transport controls.
“What began with the Q49 has now grown into a family of controllers with sizes and configurations for any musician to capture their performances,” said Dan Radin, Alesis product manager. “Whether you need the simplicity of the Q61, the power of the QX61 or the compact punch of the QX25, there’s a perfect Q-Series companion for every musician.”
