More Info

The Q88 from Alesis is 88-key USB/MIDI keyboard controller featuring semi-weighted, velocity-sensitive keys, packaged in a compact and portable form. Suitable for both stage and studio use, the controller features assignable pitch and modulation wheels and data slider, along with octave transpose buttons.

The unit provides a USB-MIDI jack for easy connection to a Mac or Windows computer, along with iOS devices with the addition of Apple's Camera Connection Kit (not included). A traditional 5-pin MIDI jack is also present for connecting to external MIDI sound modules, synthesizers and samplers. Additionally, MIDI commands can be sent from the Q88's keys to change programs, patches, etc.

To allow for performing, recording and sequencing music right out of the box, the controller ships with a copy of Ableton Live Lite Alesis Edition software, a customized and cross-platform version of Ableton Live. The keyboard can either be USB bus powered, or for stand-alone use, powered from an optional external power supply.
