AlesisVI61 Keyboard MIDI Controller
VI61 from Alesis is an intuitive professional USB/MIDI keyboard controller with some astounding features. Take control of the most intricate aspects of a workflow with VI61’s generous selection of knobs, pads, buttons, and more.
VI61 features a 61-note keyboard with velocity sensitivity, semi-weighted keys, and aftertouch. Adjacent octave up/down buttons ensure that players have access to a comprehensive melodic range, enabling them to engage a variety of different roles including bass lines, melodies, and even chords! Since VI61 also features 16 assignable knobs alongside 48 assignable buttons, manipulating effects and various parameters has never been easier. Additional amenities include 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads and both pitch bend and modulation wheels.
If all of the above wasn’t enough, Alesis have painstakingly ensured that VI61 affords seamless connectivity with a PC or Mac for expedient integration with a variety of applications. Simply connect a USB cable and be amazed as the unit is powered and optimized for MIDI in one fell swoop. And since Alesis had the foresight to incorporate a brilliant LED screen, players can enjoy precise visual feedback. But that’s not the whole story. Not even close. That’s because VI61 also ships with Ableton Live Lite and Xpand!2 by AIR Music Tech. These two inherently dynamic instruments give users everything required to record, remix, and conceive musical ideas beyond their wildest dreams. Combined, players will be able to create mind-bending tracks straight out of the box. Doesn't get much better than that.
