OVERVIEW

The Alesis Q25 is a 25-note, velocity-sensitive, MIDI keyboard controller with USB and traditional MIDI ports that enable you to connect to almost all MIDI equipment including software and sound modules. Thanks to Pitch and Modulation wheels, backlit Octave Up and Down buttons, and a Volume/Data Entry slider, you can add expression, range, and dynamics to your performances quickly and effortlessly.

Simply connect the Q25 to your computer with the included USB cable and you're immediately ready to begin making music. A single USB cable supplies power and data connection, and you won't even need to install drivers to make the Q25 work. The Q25 is class-compliant, which allows you to skip the programming and start playing instantly.

The Q25 comes with a copy of Ableton Live Lite, Alesis Edition software, for performing, recording, and sequencing music right out of the box. The Q25 is also the perfect choice for controlling hardware MIDI devices. Its compact size and portability make it ideal for fitting into existing rigs and then hitting the road. Place it a tier above an existing workstation keyboard and utilize Q25's streamlined layout to maximize your sound and performance options. You can even send Program Changes from the Q25's keys to change programs, patches, and more.

    Purchased for use in GarageBand so I don't damage my keyboard from repeated pressing. USB connects fast. Quick key response, sleek look.

      Comments about Alesis Q25 25-Key Keyboard MIDI Controller:

      I use this with Logic Pro to create midi tracks. I bought it because it was inexpensive and small; I thought I would use it some but not enough to justify a high-end keyboard. It's mostly straight forward. I have only used a few of the features (up and down octaves option), and the shifters. For the money, it's a good buy.

        I'm just a novice trying to write music using the keyboard and Ableton software. It works really well and is very easy for a beginner like me.

              Straitforward simple midi keyboard with sensitive keys runs usb midi AND has the midi out jack. It came with Ableton Live Lite and Ignite, both of which work nicely. I got a good buy on the keyboard, the software feels like a bonus.

                This is not an advanced keyboard, which is what I like about it. Lightweight, plug-and-play, small, and one assignable fader for basic automation needs. I have this sitting on my desk right above my qwerty keyboard in order to quickly preview synth patches and record simple 1-octave parts.

                  I first purchased this controller six months ago when it was on sale, I like it so much that I purchased another one as a backup. This is A no nonsense easy-to-use controller that does not get in the way, it's compact and well-made.

                    Comments about Alesis Q25 25-Key Keyboard MIDI Controller:

                    My primary DAW is Sonar and it was a simple plug n play connection.

                    Mostly a guitar player I did learn to play piano on a Steinway and Hammond C3 so I appreciate the full size keys and weighted touch that adds dynamics but it doesn't have the feel of an actual quality keyboard. Then again I bought it to add fills and some background keys and not to give a concert on it.

                    It's small, light and fits in a cubby hole on my desk. It is light enough not to be a hassle moving around yet has enough heft to it that it appears to have some longevity built in to it.

                    Overall; It does what it's supposed to do and has the build quality to do that for quite a while.

                    P.S. The comment about only coming in black was a joke.
