When the melody hits you and it’s time to make music, you can’t afford to pick the wrong tool for the job.
You need the Alesis Q49 MKII, a no-nonsense MIDI controller with 49 full-size, velocity sensitive, synth-
action keys. This USB bus-powered MIDI controller has everything you need to make your performance
unique – Octave and Transpose buttons for accessing the full piano range, Pitch Bend and Modulation
wheels for added expression, and Transport buttons to control key functions of your favourite software
or DAW. For added expression there’s also a Sustain Pedal input, and a re-assignable slider for quick
parameter control. Plug in the Q49 MKII and immediately turn your PC, Mac, or iOS device into the MIDI
production tool you need. The Alesis Q49 MKII comes with a premium software bundle that features world-class tools for
composing and recording. Pro Tools is the industry standard in digital recording, and MPC Beats gives
you access to the same sought-after production tools used by the best in the business. Both include
tons of professional-grade sounds and virtual instruments that can boost any composition. If you’re
just learning to play, or just want to sharpen your keyboard skills, the Q49 MKII also includes 60 free
lessons from Melodics, the best way to learn piano.
