TOUCH STRIP FOR HANDS-ON CONTROL

The onboard assignable Touch Strip Controller is a catalyst for new ways to control, create and interact with your own signature sounds.

DYNAMIC EXPRESSION

Dedicated Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheels mean an added touch of expression to elevate your compositions. Bend the notes of your synth and lead sounds in Fabric XL, add gentle vibrato to your stringed instruments in Session Strings, or dial in the speed of the Organ’s rotary Leslie cabinet and hear your parts swell with a wide chorused tremolo. The Mod and Pitch wheels bring depth and dimension to any MPC Key 61 keyboard part.
