A compact, portable, expressive controller for your MIDI software and hardware.
Alesis' QX25 makes it easy to take commanding, tactile control over any parameter of your favorite music software. Using the included USB cable, the QX25 receives power while also transmitting MIDI data to your Mac, PC or iOS* software, or MIDI hardware device of choice. Punch out a drumbeat on its four easy-to-use pads, open up a filter with its 8 smooth and tight knobs, or adjust volume and playback of sequencing software with its long fader and snappy buttons. The QX25's immense parameter control and velocity-sensitive 25-key keyboard get your hands off of the mouse and into the action for a more efficient, visceral music-making experience.
The QX25's 25-note keyboard means its pitch range is perfect for performing with software instruments and samplers while still remaining highly portable. Plus, it provides keyboard players with a full compliment of controls including pitch and modulation wheels, octave up/down buttons and the ability to send program changes directly from the keys. The QX25's keyboard can even be split into sections to control multiple instruments at once.
The array of assignable controls on the QX25 works with virtually all music software and MIDI hardware devices. Whether you're looking to fire drum samples, tweak a software synthesizer or adjust individual tracks in a mix, the its extensive layout ensures appropriate feel and proper response with its sliders and rotary knobs, backlit drum pads, and dedicated transport controls.
The QX25 comes with Ableton Live Lite Alesis Edition software for performing, recording, and sequencing music right out of the box. This customized version of Ableton Live provides a fresh and easy way to create music. You'll get audio recording and production capabilities as well as powerful tools for live performance.
