Compact Keyboard Controller is Perfect For Students, Studios, and Stages
Alesis, a leading manufacturer of professional audio equipment and studio electronics, announces Q25 USB/MIDI keyboard controller.
Q25 is a 25-note keyboard controller that works with virtually all music software and MIDI hardware devices. The compact controller features USB-MIDI and traditional MIDI jacks for easy connection to Mac, PC and MIDI hardware.
Q25 provides keyboard-players and producers essential performance controls, including pitch and modulation wheels, octave up and down buttons and an assignable data slider. Program Changes can also be sent from Q25's keys to quickly alter programs, patches, and more.
Q25 uses a single USB cable to receive power and transfer MIDI data to a computer. The Q25 is class-compliant, so there is no need to install drivers to start playing immediately. Q25 also comes with a copy of Ableton Live Lite®, Alesis Edition software, for performing, recording, and sequencing music right out of the box.
Q25 pairs compact, essential control with complete MIDI keyboard performance for playing and recording with virtually any MIDI software or hardware.
“Alesis has a long tradition in keyboards and continue to offer the tools musicians need to make music the way they like,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Alesis. “Q25 is compact, affordable and easy to use with the software and hardware musicians use today.”
The Q25 will be available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers in early Fall 2010. It has a U.S. estimated street price of $79.00.
