Alesis Vortex Keytar is an all new guitar/keyboard style USB MIDI controller loaded with over 500 sounds and eight velocity sensitive trigger pads. Alesis Vortex Keytar gives you the freedom to get up front and join the party on stage, removing the barrier between you and your audience. Vortex keytar controllers offer an extensive array of MIDI control, from drum pads, pitch and modulation to the all new MIDI-assignable accelerometer.
With Vortex you can get out from behind your keyboard stand and be just as visual as guitarists and singers with an instrument that will respond to your motion. You’ll be able to create incredible volume swells, amazing pitch bends, vibratos, filter cutoffs and more by simply tilting the Vortex’s neck in the heat of the moment during live performances.
Vortex includes even more features never before found on any keytar: both traditional MIDI and USB MIDI are onboard, empowering you to use the Vortex with all of your software instruments and synths on Mac and PC. You'll have a virtually unlimited palette of sounds, ready to command with one of the most exciting keytar controllers ever. Alesis Vortex comes ready for instant performance, automapped for today’s most popular software synths and DAWs. Plus, you can customize and create your own mappings for virtually any MIDI software.
