Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller

The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller offers you to experience outrageous, unprecedented wireless keytar performance. Connects wirelessly to your computer and integrates with popular virtual instruments, plugins, and DAWs, the Alesis Vortex Wireless ensures maximum stage and studio mobility.

The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller eliminates the barrier between you and your audience by giving you the freedom to move around the stage and take the lead. With an extensive layout of touch-sensitive keys and velocity-sensitive pads on its pearlescent white body, and radical pitch and modulation controls on its neck, the Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller empowers you to rule the stage.

The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller is the first keytar to include a MIDI-assignable accelerometer. Now, you can get out from behind your keyboard stand and be just as visual as guitarists and singers with an instrument that will respond to your motion. You'll be able to create incredible volume swells, amazing pitch bends, vibratos, filter cutoffs and more by tilting the Vortex's neck in the heat of the moment during live performances.

The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller includes even more features never before found on any keytar: both traditional MIDI and USB MIDI are onboard, empowering you to use the Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller with all of your software instruments and synths on Mac, PC, and iPad. You'll have a virtually unlimited palette of sounds, ready to command with one of the most exciting keytar controllers ever.

The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller comes ready for instant performance, automapped for today's most popular software synths and DAWs. Plus, you can customize and create your own mappings for virtually any MIDI software.

Breathe new life into every performance with the most expressive keytar ever produced. The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller's neck controls are laid out ergonomically: your thumb controls a volume slider and pitch-bend wheel while your fingers command nine front-facing controls that include a MIDI-assignable touch strip, and buttons for octave selection and sustain. Large transport and patch-select controls are centrally located on the Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller's body for instant access, and synth lovers will be happy to know that the Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller's 37 velocity-sensitive keys feature aftertouch to enable instant creative flourishes.

Everybody wants to rule the world, but you can rule the stage. The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller is for controllerists, for those who want to perform without limitations to their movement or their sound set. The Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller is bus powered when connected to a Mac or PC, and can also be powered by batteries when used with MIDI modules and iOS devices including the iPad. Standard strap pegs are located on the Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller's neck and body, and an adjustable strap is included.

Outrageous keytar performance in a pristine, pearl-white body, the Alesis Vortex Wireless Keytar Controller is the perfect storm of stunning design and incredible performance capability. Your audience won't know what hit them.
