The Alesis VI25 is an advanced USB MIDI keyboard controller that lets you take command of your music software with a series of pads, knobs, and buttons without needing to reach for your mouse.

The 25 keys are semi-weighted, velocity- and pressure-sensitive, and you can expand the keyboard to the full melodic range to play bass lines, chords, and melodies using dedicated Octave Up/Down buttons. Pitch and modulation wheels expand the expressive capabilities of your performing, and you can launch clips or finger drum using the 16 velocity-sensitive RGB trigger pads.

VI49 features 8 assignable knobs and 24 assignable buttons for manipulating effect plugins and virtual instruments. Open and close filters, adjust volume levels, activate effects, tweak parameters, and more.

A single USB connection to your Mac or PC provides power and MIDI functionality, allowing you to plug into your computer and start making music.
