Alesis V161

The Alesis V161 is an advanced MIDI keyboard controller that allows you to gain full control over your music with 61 velocity-sensitive keys, 16 assignable knobs and 48 assignable buttons. These can be used to manipulate any parameters you want within your favourite music software including effects plugins and musical instruments.

Plug-and-Go Functionality

Connecting the V161 to a Mac or PC is simple with the single USB connection which provides both power and MIDI functionality, while a 5-pin MIDI Out can connect to any MIDI compatible external device- drum modules, synthesisers and more. The LED screen and illuminated controls provide real-time visual feedback, making for an intuitive work flow and an impressive appearance on dark stages.

Compact Design

The V161’s compact size makes it easy to transport and ideal for busy studios and packed stages where space is at a premium.

Powerful Software

Ableton Live Lite and Xpand!2 by AIR Music Tech are included with the V161 as standard. Spontaneously record, remix, improvise and edit musical ideas with Ableton Live Lite’s fluid audio/MIDI environment or create dynamic virtual instruments with Xpand!2.
