With the two models of the Code Series Black you get a keyboard controller that has everything you will ever need to control your software but also your analog synthesizers. In addition to professional features, great playability and a comprehensive software package, the Code series was developed with the background to create the best possible combination for studio and stage, so that you can convey your musical ideas with directness, precision and clarity.
All Code Black keyboards - models with 49 and 61 keys - have a keyboard base with a clean and precise mechanics. For maximum expressiveness, the new Waterfall style keys are touch-sensitive and pressure-sensitive.
Code Keyboards are equipped with everything you need. With assignable faders, knobs, buttons, drum pads, pitch bend and modulation wheel, nothing stands in the way of your creativity. The integrated X/Y touchpad is particularly suitable for interaction with effects or for creative sound design.
In addition, the keyboard can be divided into four assignable zones to maximize the flexibility and functionality of your setup. For example, trigger four different instruments in a separate zone, or overlap zones and trigger two instruments simultaneously.
Most DAWs use shortcuts to perform general functions (such as adding tracks, cutting, pasting, etc.). Now, with support for ASCII/HID shortcut keys, you can link these commonly used shortcuts to the controller itself and optimize your workflow for a faster, more efficient and much more satisfying creation or production process. This eliminates the need for a computer keyboard. Code also supports the Mackie Control/HUI control modes for transport control.
With 16 assignable velocity-sensitive drum pads you can play your drums, trigger samples, start clips or control your effects. The RGB backlight shows you in which mode the pad is currently.
The buttons, knobs and faders are also color-coded, so you can directly see the mode in which they are located. An alphanumeric LED display provides informative feedback, including a screen display of parameters and settings. Everything you need for precise control.
The Code Series also includes a comprehensive software package. Ableton Live Lite, the VA/Wavetable Synthesizer Hybrid 3 and the additive modular synthesizer Loom from Air Music Tech provide musicians with a creative package for sound design and music production.
Ableton Live Lite offers many of the features of Ableton Live - the revolutionary, award-winning music production solution that lets you spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise and edit your musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. Live brings together your acoustic, electronic and virtual instruments - as well as your digital audio recordings and MIDI sequences - in a single interface with unparalleled ease of use.…more
