  • 1Description

Giving you both wireless and wired MIDI control options, the Vortex Wireless - USB/MIDI Keytar With Accelerometer from Alesis provides 37 velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, 8 velocity-sensitive drum pads, an assignable touchstrip, and sustain and octave controls. Its integrated accelerometer is located in the neck and can be assigned to a variety of functions, allowing you to control parameters by moving the neck of the keytar.

When used wirelessly, the Vortex is powered by 4 included AA batteries, but can also be bus or adapter powered (not included). Thanks to its USB and 5-pin DIN MIDI out, it can be used to control a variety of MIDI compatible software and hardware through a wired connection. To help get you started out of the box, a copy of Ableton Live Lite and downloads for SONiVOX Vortex-I and AIR Music Tech's Ignite are included. Also included are a USB wireless receiver, a USB extension cable, a USB cable, a strap, and a cable harness.

    Alesis Vortex Wireless reviews

    Vortex Wireless - USB/MIDI Keytar With Accelerometer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unhappy So far I am very unhappy with this purchase. It was on back order for a very long time, about 5 months, and since I received it last week, it still has not made a sound. I am working with the manufacturer to see if I am doing something wrong, so i cannot tell the final outcome. But I cannot be described as happy in any way.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ? Does what it says. I've been controlling my minibrute brute with it via midi with very pleasing results. Not the most high quality of materials, but it feels sturdy enough. If a keytar is the form factor you would like for your controller, look no further.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was hoping it would be! Awesome design. Great functionality! Could have a little more user friendly patch edit system but once you get it down it's fine. Built well!
