M-Audio CODE61BLKXUS Details

M-Audio CODE61BLK controllers are equipped with everything you need to produce some serious musical creations.

M-Audio presents its CODE Series (Black) keyboard controllers, a pair of full-featured models, combining all of the production power and performance you need to get the most from your music software and MIDI gear. The CODE Series (Black) offers several thoughtful design touches that enable you to create and perform your best. A keyboard should not be an obstacle standing in the way of creativity. Instead, it should function as a direct extension of your thoughts ensuring that you convey musical ideas with immediacy, precision and clarity.

Great Playability
All CODE Series (Black) keyboards-25, 49 and 61 key models-have an all-new keybed with action that is clean, and precise. The natural profile keys are both velocity- and pressure-sensitive, for maximum expressive capability.

Assignable Controllers
CODE Series (Black) controllers are equipped with everything you need to produce some serious musical creations. Extensive assignable parameter control is a breeze with multiple banks of faders, knobs, buttons, pads and a smooth feeling pitch bend and modulation wheel. New to the line of M-Audio controllers is the X/Y Touchpad, which provides additional and direct interaction with effects and instrument plugin parameters across an X/Y axis - the ideal control source for effects and instruments loaded into Ableton Live's Audio and MIDI channels.

In addition, the keyboards can be split into four assignable zones to maximize the flexibility and functionality of your setup. (ie: trigger four different instruments in their own separate zone, or overlap zones and trigger two instruments at the same time).

Serious Production Power
Most every DAW uses keyboard shortcuts to execute common functions (like adding tracks, cut, paste, etc.). Now with support for ASCII/HID keyboard shortcut commands, you can map these commonly used shortcuts right to the controller itself, streamlining your workflow for a faster, more efficient and far more satisfying creation/production process. The CODE Series (Black) also supports Mackie Control/HUI control modes, so right out of the box you are ready to work with most DAWs with minimal setup.

Backlit Drum Pads
There are 16 assignable RGB backlit velocity sensitive drum pads to indicate at a quick glance exactly what function any particular pad is assigned to. The buttons, knobs and faders are also color-coded to indicate what mode they're in. An alphanumeric LED display provides informative feedback, including on-screen display of parameters and settings. It all adds up to no confusion, no guessing, just precision control.

Exclusive Software Included
A comprehensive software package is included-Ableton Live Lite and full versions of AIR Music Technology's award winning virtual instruments Loom and Hybrid 3.0-so you have unrestricted access to world-class creative tools.

Ableton Live Lite delivers much of the functionality of Ableton Live-the revolutionary, multi-award winning music production solution that lets you spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise and edit your musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. Live brings your acoustic, electronic and virtual instruments-as well as your digital audio recordings and MIDI sequences-together in a single interface with unparalleled ease of use.

Hybrid 3.0 is the next generation in synthesis. This high-definition virtual synthesizer combines the coveted warmth of analog synths with a full range of futuristic digital manipulation capabilities. The result is the best of both worlds
- a virtual instrument with a comprehensive set of precisely adjustable parameters that can sound like a synth you remember or something no one has ever heard before.

Loom is an award-winning modular additive synthesizer with a shape-shifting Morph Pad that makes it easy to create rich, swirling, and captivating sounds. Loom takes a unique modular approach to additive synthesis, a synthesis technique that involves combining simple waveforms together to create complex sounds, by allowing anyone to select from and combine 30 editable modules. Create anything from wobbles, ethereal pads, ambient soundscapes, and much more. The programmable Morph Pad brings your Loom patches to life by morphing between user- defined variations of your patch, adding motion and momentum that continues to evolve.
