49-Key Controller, Full-Color Screen

New from Alesis, the VX49 MIDI controller stands out for its high-resolution, full-color screen, which measures 4.3 inches across and provides advanced control of virtual instrument plugins and DAWs. The layout is built for efficient workflow, and features 49 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, plus eight velocity- and pressure-sensitive drum pads with RGB illumination. Make adjustments using eight 360-degree knobs and eight dual-function switch pads, and count on the built-in “roll mode” and arpeggiator features for further creative expression.
