Compatibility at its finest
The Q49 Alesis 49-note keyboard controller will work with almost all music software. For example, Ableton Live Lite Alesis Edition software that comes with the controller as standard.
With a huge compliment of controls such as pitch bend/modulation wheels as well as buttons that enable you to go up or down an octave, this MIDI keyboard is highly versatile and will be suitable for a wide spectrum of musicians.
Compact Chromatic Control
The Q49 provides keyboard players with a full compliment of controls 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 Q49 comes with a copy of Ableton's Live Lite and AIR Music Tech's Xpand!2 software, for performing, recording, and sequencing music right out of the box. The Q49 is also the perfect choice for controlling hardware MIDI devices. Its compact size and portability make it ideal for fitting into existing rigs and then hitting the road. Place it a tier above an existing workstation keyboard and utilize Q49's streamlined layout to maximize your sound and performance options. You can even send Program Changes from the Q49's keys to change programs, patches, and more.
Overall this is a very light, compact, easy to use keyboard that is very affordable.
