The A-500PRO from Cakewalk is a 49-key USB/MIDI controller that features a Roland keybed, and can be used in the studio, on-stage, or anywhere else you feel inspired to create music. The ultra sensitive keyboard provides an expanded dynamic feel, while new aftertouch sensors let you play more expressively.
The keyboard also features 8 velocity-sensitive, lighted dynamic pads for finger drumming and triggering loops and samples, with a HOLD button for latching. Console-style faders provide an improved feel while making tweaks and adjustments, and a dedicated transport section can be remapped if desired. A brightly lit LED display helps navigate the system menu.
The included Editor software makes creating new control maps, and transferring them to the A-PRO, simple and easy. And a Production Plus Pack software bundle includes Cakewalk Sound Center, Rapture LE and Studio Instruments Drums for Mac and PC, as well as SONAR 8.5 LE (PC Only), allowing you to start making music instantly.
