Take commanding, tactile control over any parameter of your favorite music software with the QX61. Through a standard USB connection, the QX61 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 great-feeling pads, open up a filter with smooth, tight knobs, or adjust volume and playback of sequencing software with long faders and snappy buttons. QX61's immense parameter control and velocity-sensitive keyboard get your hands off of the mouse and into the action for a more efficient, visceral music-making experience.
With a 61-note keyboard, the QX61's pitch range is perfect for performing with software instruments and samplers while still remaining highly portable. Plus, the Q61 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 QX61's keyboard can even be split into sections to control multiple instruments at once!
