OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Direct control of virtual instruments.

The VX49 fuses the creative power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation, by transforming computer based VST plugins into entirely hands-on production experience.

Step Up Your Workflow
At the heart of the VX49 is a 4.3" full color high-resolution display screen. This screen allows you to directly interface with your DAW and virtual instrument plugins better than ever before. The VX49 also features an all new custom 49-key semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch, 4 banks of 8 RGB backlit velocity- and pressure-sensitive drum pads, 8 360-degree performance-ready knobs, 8 dual-function switch pads, backlit and rubberized pitch and mod wheels, built-in "Roll Mode" and arpeggiator features, and much more. With an unprecedentedly efficient control layout and workflow, the VX49 is the perfect choice for today’s most demanding producers and keyboardists

Fully Integrated with VIP
Using the included Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software, the VX49 fuses the creative power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation--- essentially transforming computer-based plugins into an entirely hands-on production experience. VIP works with any VSTi virtual instrument, including the 7 premium VST plugins by SONiVOX and AIR Music Tech that are also bundled with VX49. The integrated high-resolution full-color 4.3" display instantly adapts itself to the selected plugin’s controls, delivering immediate 1:1 access to the instrument and many other various editable functions.

Sort and Create New Sounds Quickly
VIP gives you access to any virtual instrument in your collection with or without a DAW. An integrated patch browser presents every patch for every VST plugin you have, and enables you to quickly filter, select, and preview patches based on their specific attributes. VIP software also lets you create setlists that provide instant on-demand access to user-curated instruments for stage performance and studio work. You can even layer multiple patches together (from up to 8 different VST plugins) to create new patches and timbres. All of this—without ever reaching for the computer. That's what you've been waiting for.

High resolution colored screen with dedicated interface buttons
Screen provides 1:1, real-time feedback of plugin parameters
Includes VIP — load, play, & control any VST plugin
8 performance-ready 360° knobs
Custom 49-key Alesis semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch

I bought this as a stupid deal, and overall I'm impressed. I play in church and use Reason for most of my sound. I needed a device with assignable parameters so I could avoid having to click around on the laptop.

I definitely like the overall feel and functionality. It's definitely made from high quality material. It also includes its own VST software and library, but I haven't used it, so I can't speak to whether or not it's any good.

My one complaint would be that the device is not exactly user friendly. There's a bit of a learning curve to figuring out exactly how to get it to play nice with reason. It probably took me an hour or too to figure it out, so it's not terrible per se, but also definitely not a plug and play type of thing.

Overall I like the device and it was definitely a steal for the price I paid!

Problems with VIP software - so just a basic Midi Controller

After 4 days of messing around, this is simply a basic midi controller. Current state - VIP software won't launch independently, VIP software crashes in ProTools Express (Version 10). I'll revise this review if I am able to finally get VIP to run in any circumstance. VIP is what makes this keyboard more than just a basic controller and I have not been able to get it to run. I will be contacting support and if unsuccessful will be returning this to MF.

    • Home recording

    Comments about Alesis VX49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

    Well made and versatile quality keyboard ideally suited for controlling soft synths. Four octaves makes this a lot more usable than those piddly little two octave controllers. The software that comes with this is a huge bonus. I have some great professional keyboards to use, but despite that the VX49 fills a gap needed for controlling soft synths. I bought this as a stupid deal for about 150 spondulies, but even at full price it is still a good buy. If you're looking for a controller keyboard for recording soft synths, don't hesitate. You won't regret it.

          The feel of these keys are better than my Yamaha Motif (good feel also).
          The quality of this Controller and the look of it is top notch. The added software is worth the price alone.
          The VIP function is a game changer.
          No buyers remorse here.

            Product is really useful for studio use, the advanced integration with VST´s is what truly makes this controller special, plus it comes with an arp feature too, which is unusual in large keyboard controllers available in the market today.

                Being new to MIDI I needed something that I could record with that was simple to use. I was impressed with the ease of getting it operational. I am still learning everyday but I had this making music with 15 minutes. My friends that are MIDI knowledgeable were surprised with the performance of this keyboard. I am using it with Studio One 3 professional. If you want a good studio keyboard don't hesitate!

                  After 4 days of messing around, this is simply a basic midi controller. Current state - VIP software won't launch independently, VIP software crashes in ProTools Express (Version 10). I'll revise this review if I am able to finally get VIP to run in any circumstance. VIP is what makes this keyboard more than just a basic controller and I have not been able to get it to run. I will be contacting support and if unsuccessful will be returning this to MF.

                    Have been using this through Ableton and a DiY cv pal to use my Eurorack gear. The key sensitivity is adjustable and the feel is exceptional. The large arpeggiator bank is absolutely amazing to use on new analog or old vintage gear as well. Alexis really sold me though with 5 pin midi in/out and the ease of changing pad notes directly though the interface.

                    If I had been tasked with designing a perfect keyboard for DAWs that also could be interfaced to use modular with little latency, I would have come up with something close to this.

                      Comments about Alesis VX49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

                      I am very pleased with the VX49. The knobs and keys have a great smooth action, everything feels sturdily built, and the VIP software is great for tinkering. The pads work really well too. Set up was easy, but it really depends what DAW you're integrating it into, and that you know your way around installing the VST's that come with the VX49. Using this in Studio One is a breeze and it speeds up my workflow a lot.

                      When it first arrived I found the keys weren't sensitive enough for me, but you can change the sensitivity of everything straight from the menu system on the controller, no need for playing around with drivers.

                      Exactly what I needed.

                        I got this controller because the VIP software sorts and categorizes all of my software instruments. The keybed feels amazing to (tho I am not a pianist). The buttons, knobs and pads feel high quality and the display screen is a very welcomed feature that gives you feedback without having to look at your computer.

                            This guy replaces my Samson as a controller for my Reaper DAW. I'm very happy with the keyboard action; much more responsive then the Samson. All the pretty lights are taking some getting use to, and I'm still learning some of the features. Got this on SDOTD, doubt I would have gotten it if it was the regular price. Overall very good controller bundled with some nice usable software.

                                Amazing as a soft synth, The VIP software is awesome, thousands of sounds. Keybed is fantastic also. Terrible as a midi module controller, I can't figure it out.
