Just about everything on Evolution keyboards is an assignable controller—including knobs, faders, buttons, pitch wheel, mod wheel, and sustain pedal input. You can even trigger specific MIDI notes from assigned buttons.
One touch on our smooth, solid action will tell you that we haven't forgotten that keyboards are also meant to be played. 12 different velocity curves let you choose the response that's perfect for your touch. Slide controls are high-quality Alps faders.
More Performance/Programming Features
Program while you play with our unique keypad entry method—complete with dedicated function buttons, inc/dec controls and 10 memory presets. Organ Drawbar mode reverses the faders to respond just like the real thing. Controller Mute allows you to preadjust controller positions without sending data, then use Snapshot to send all current settings at once.
Evolution controllers are USB class compliant, making installation as simple as plug-and-play. Our large LCD panels provide for words and graphics that numeric displays alone can't touch. You also get presets set up to control popular music software right out of the box.
Note for note, all this adds up to more features for the dollar. All Evolution keyboards even come bundled with free software to get you started—including a VST sequencer for PC.
