The Q MINI Compact USB-MIDI Controller from Alesis is designed for optimal portability and connectivity. Specifically designed to be the ultimate tool for songwriters and music producers on the go, the Q MINI gives you all the precision and control you need to personalize your sound so you can work, experiment, and play whenever—and wherever—inspiration may strike.
Despite its lightweight, compact build, the Q MINI provides all the essential controls to expertly compose and create on the go. In addition to its 32 velocity-sensitive keys, you can manipulate parameters such as Octave, Transpose, and more. Pitch Bend and Modulation buttons add feeling and expression, while the Sustain button keeps notes going longer. A re-assignable Volume knob can be customized to any parameter your software allows for even more personalized control.
Its plug-and-play capability allows you to connect directly to a computer or tablet, while its layout is designed specifically for easy navigation. With its compatibility with any music production app or DAW that accepts a MIDI controller, the Q MINI streamlines your workflow, so you no longer have to take up precious seconds clicking and typing on your computer to get your performance to sound how you want it.
The Q MINI also comes with a premium software bundle so you have all the tools you need to effortlessly make music on the go, as well as education software that will help you master your craft and expand your skillset. This bundle includes MPC Beats, which gives you access to professional-caliber music production tools, as well as 60 free piano lessons from Melodics. Both also include pro-grade sounds and virtual instruments to add individuality and dimension to whatever project you’re working on.
