Alesis Vortex Wireless "Keytar-style" Wireless Keyboard Controller
About this product
Take back the stage and experience untethered, wireless keytar performance with the Alesis Vortex Wireless. This dynamic keytar controller connects wirelessly to your computer and integrates with popular virtual instruments, plugins, and DAWs. For maximum stage and studio mobility, the PC- and Mac-compatible USB dongle uses a single USB port to create a reliable, wireless connection. Fastened with a piano black finish and intuitive ergonomic layout, Vortex Wireless offers comprehensive controller functionality in a stylish and stage-ready design. Create dynamic, expressive performances that the audience will both see and hear.
Command the stage with 37 velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, 8 velocity-sensitive drum pads, and a row of physical knobs all laid out in an accessible, hands-on design. A series of neck controls provides further performance options: tweak sounds using the MIDI-assignable touch strip and MIDI-assignable accelerometer, expand melodic ideas with the octave range buttons, and activate sustain all while your right hand remains free to play. Vortex Wireless offers multiple connectivity options and comes equipped with USB-MIDI and MIDI Out.
Vortex Wireless comes bundled with a versatile, high-definition virtual synthesizer. Xpand!2, by AIR Music Tech, expands the sonic pallet of your Vortex Wireless with ambient pads, edgy leads, wobbly basses, and more. For performing, producing, recording, and improvising, Ableton Live Lite is also included. Finally, a clear, concise, and easy to use, point-and-click patch editor, Vyzex Vortex is also included, so you can quickly configure any parameter of any patch on your Alesis Vortex. You can also use Vyzex Vortex to save and load all of your Vortex patches to and from your hard drive for easy backup.
