Inspiring Performance Capabilities
The Alesis Q 49 boasts 49 full-size keys, with a synth action that provides a buttery smooth playing experience. They’re also velocity-sensitive, which allows the dynamic nuance of your playing to come through. Additional expression is provided by the robust pitch and mod wheels, which give you analogue-style control over your software instruments.
There’s a 1/4" input on the rear for a sustain pedal if you want the ability to hold notes hands-free.
The tactile slider, while labelled “volume”, can be assigned to control other functions, such as a track’s volume or the cutoff knob on a soft synth.
