Dedicated transport controls make recording with your DAW quick and easy. It also includes Ableton Live Lite 9 and a Software Preset/Parameter utility.
A compact keyboard with tons of functionality
The Alesis VI61, with its 61-note semi-weighted keyboard, is ideal for two-handed performing - while remaining portable. The VI61 gives you a bevy of controls, including pitch and mod wheels, transport controls, and a massive selection of pads, buttons and encoders. You have everything you need to take command of your DAW and virtual instruments in the studio or onstage.
All of the controls you need, right where you need them to be
The Alesis VI61 USB MIDI keyboard controller puts a wide selection of controls at your fingertips. First, there are the semi-weighted keys themselves, all 61 of which give you aftertouch control. You also get 16 RGB backlit, velocity-sensitive drum pads let you tap out rhythms and trigger loops, plus the VI61 features a full transport section for running your DAW. Above the keys are 16 illuminated, assignable knobs and 48 illuminated, assignable buttons that can be programmed to control the parameters of your favorite virtual instruments. Add that to the pitch and modulation wheels and you have a controller that is ready to take on any project.
USB and MIDI outputs provide compatibility with all of your gear
Whether you use a MIDI keyboard or a computer running virtual instruments for your sounds, the VI61 controller will integrate perfectly with your synth rig. That's because Alesis outfitted it with both a 5-pin MIDI output port and a fully class-compliant USB port, which gives you plug-and-play computer connectivity. The Alesis VI61 lets you take command of your DAW and Virtual Instruments like never before.
