The keyboard ships with two pieces of software, a virtual piano instrument from SONiVOX, and Ableton Live Lite music creation software.
Transport and directional controls allow for playing, performing, and recording with music software without using a mouse or trackpad. A 1/4" (6.3 mm) sustain pedal input accepts an optional control pedal for genuine piano sustain. Lightweight and durable, the controller is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Additionally, the unit supports iOS connectivity using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit ( sold separately), enabling one to perform and compose with audio apps on an iPad or another iOS device.
SONiVOX's Eighty-Eight Ensemble is a piano instrument that authentically captures a 9-foot CD327 Steinway piano. Meticulously recorded and expertly sampled, the instrument provides anyone the opportunity to add to their compositions, recordings, and performances the realism of a world-class grand piano. Use the combination patches to layer strings, synth pads, and choral pads with the piano samples to create evolving, lush soundscapes and textures.
Ableton Live Lite is a performance and production program that is perfect for spontaneous composition or improvising, recording, remixing and editing musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment.
