Overview

The VX49 fuses the creative power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation, by transforming computer based VST plugins into entirely hands-on production experience.

Step Up Your Workflow
At the heart of the VX49 is a 4.3" full color high-resolution display screen. This screen allows you to directly interface with your DAW and virtual instrument plugins better than ever before. The VX49 also features an all new custom 49-key semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch, 4 banks of 8 RGB backlit velocity- and pressure-sensitive drum pads, 8 360-degree performance-ready knobs, 8 dual-function switch pads, backlit and rubberized pitch and mod wheels, built-in "Roll Mode" and arpeggiator features, and much more. With an unprecedentedly efficient control layout and workflow, the VX49 is the perfect choice for today’s most demanding producers and keyboardists

Fully Integrated with VIP
Using the included Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software, the VX49 fuses the creative power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation--- essentially transforming computer-based plugins into an entirely hands-on production experience. VIP works with any VSTi virtual instrument, including the 7 premium VST plugins by SONiVOX and AIR Music Tech that are also bundled with VX49. The integrated high-resolution full-color 4.3" display instantly adapts itself to the selected plugin’s controls, delivering immediate 1:1 access to the instrument and many other various editable functions.

Sort and Create New Sounds Quickly
VIP gives you access to any virtual instrument in your collection with or without a DAW. An integrated patch browser presents every patch for every VST plugin you have, and enables you to quickly filter, select, and preview patches based on their specific attributes. VIP software also lets you create setlists that provide instant on-demand access to user-curated instruments for stage performance and studio work. You can even layer multiple patches together (from up to 8 different VST plugins) to create new patches and timbres. All of this—without ever reaching for the computer. That's what you've been waiting for.

Comments about Alesis VX49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

I originally purchased the Akai APK 49 in order to get the VIP software. Then this model went on sale for 50% off and I couldn't resist. So far I have had fewer problems then I did with the Akai and this redesigned key bed is actually more to my liking than the stiff springy action of the Akai. I'm very pleased that I get the same features with in my opinion improved functionality for a third of the price of the APK 49. I am very pleased with this purchase, much more than I thought I would be!

    Comments about Alesis VX49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

    Great keyboard but forget about getting it to work with Studio One 3, and be prepared to spend a full night installing software and wasting time and patience with serial numbers and activations, makes me not want to use a computer anymore, this is 2017, what is the problem with making software work easily... If you are a computer genius then ok get this, but be warned.. NOT easy to get setup at all...BTW... I have 20 years as a help desk specialist... I will update if I ever get it working properly...

      Comments about Alesis VX49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

      This unit pulls all VST's from the computer onto the screen through VIP. You do not have to touch the computer at all. All functions are smartly connected to the knobs. Chords are already mapped to pads. This thing has made me forget my Kronos. The keys have a very good feel. It is that good.
