PRE-MAPPED AND READY TO PLAY
PITCH, MOD, AND MORE
Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They behave like standard pitch and mod wheels, or mimic physical objects like springs and bouncing balls for interesting modulation curves. And by using different stepped settings, glitchy-sounding instant shifts become possible.
Enhance your performance with a world of melody and harmony: Stay-on key, with notes of the currently selected scale or mode lit on the Light Guide, or activate chord mode and create a rich progression by playing single keys. Then switch on the built-in arpeggiator, and turn those single notes into an expressive musical performance. And if you’re new to the keys, Easy Mode maps all the white keys to whichever scale you like, so you’ll never hit a wrong note.
