Nektar Technology SE49 Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for studio and live performance setups, the Nektar SE49 is a full-sized 49-note velocity-sensitive MIDI controller keyboard. The synth action keybed allows you to play with expression and a defined, firm feel. There is a choice of four velocity curves (+3 fixed ones). Four buttons and one MIDI-assignable fader to the left of the keys make the SE49 even more flexible: Shift the keyboard up or down -3 to +4 octaves with multi-colored LED indicators showing the exact status. Or, transpose the keys ±12 semitones with the transpose buttons right below.

With the Nektar DAW Integration, the SE49's buttons can be reassigned to switch MIDI channels, change MIDI programs, or select tracks and browse patches. What's more, pressing a key combination changes the Octave and Transpose buttons function to send out MMC transport functions. So, you can activate start, stop, and record directly from your keyboard. Custom MIDI assignments can be made to the MIDI fader, modulation wheel, and footswitch pedal. The changes are stored, so the next time you power up, you can pick up where you left off. There is direct support for most major DAWs including Bitwig, Cubase, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Mixcraft, Reason, Reaper, Sonar, and Studio One. The Nektar SE49 is USB bus-powered and ships with a USB cable and a license for Bitwig 8-Track.
