Product Description

The MOTOR 49 master keyboard controller allows you to take total command over your virtual instruments and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Featuring amazingly-smooth action, motorized faders and touch-sensitive pads, the MOTOR 49 provides an unparalleled level of control for the ultimate creative expression. The 49 semi-weighted full-sized keys, 60 mm faders and backlit drum pads give you hands-on control over all the parameters of your favorite DAW. An incredible hardware-based arpeggiator enables you to instantly add arpeggios to software and hardware synths and create complex arrangements on the fly.


MOTOR 49’s endless rotary encoders provide immediate feedback about your software, plus the convenient, backlit transport section puts all playback and record functions right at your fingertips. You get fast, easy-to-read information at-a-glance, thanks to MOTOR 49’s spacious, backlit LCD screen. Ready to go right out of the box, just connect to your computer and download the free audio recording, editing and podcasting software which comes with 150 instruments and effects plug-ins. MOTOR 49 is the fast and easy way to get you back “in-touch” with every element of your creativity.

An Awesome and Illuminating Experience
The keyboard features 49 expressive, full-sized keys with velocity and aftertouch to deliver a superior feel. You’ll like the weighted feel of the large keys. And after you strike one of our sturdy keys, it responds in ways that will please the most seasoned musician. Aftertouch will imbue your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or color – whatever parameters you choose. Whether you have a heavy, or soft playing style, MOTOR 49 always responds to your touch.


Faders that Dance with Your Music
The days of keyboard players setting up a separate MIDI fader controller are finally over – a new day of empowerment and ease-of-use has dawned, thanks to MOTOR 49’s nine motorized 60 mm touch-sensitive faders. Now you get the very same technology found in our award-winning X32 digital mixing console to give you the ultimate control over your DAW mixer, soft synths or effect units.


Dedicated, Sensitive Drum Pads
Much like MOTOR 49’s keyboard, the back-lit drum pads are velocity and pressure sensitive, letting you take your drum performance and sample or loop triggering to the next level. Sequence beats, or fire off your favorite sample or effect and save your keyboard for more expressive play.



8 illuminated Rotary Encoders
When switching between plug-ins, MOTOR 49’s rotary encoders automatically, and visually let you know where plug-in parameters are set. The 8 ultra-precise, brightly, illuminated encoders and LED collars provide a clear and instant overview of all software parameters at all times – allowing you to stay in the creative moment.



Sublime Flexibility
With the fantastic MOTOR 49 at your command, you can communicate with your Mac or PC and instruments via USB or MIDI In/Out/Thru – including merge functionality. And and absolutely free of charge audio recording, editing and podcasting software suite, complete with 150 instrument and effects plug-ins – is just a download away,



Transport Always Ready for Your Inspiration
The backlit transport section on the MOTOR 49 provides quick, fingertip access to your playback and record modes – and swapping between faders, encoders and pad banks is as simple as the press of a button. Easy – amazingly easy!

    I’d say if you’re looking for a full size key controller with pads, knobs, and faders, this is a better gamble than most others in the price range. Stop worrying about the “deep integration.” Everything can be mapped with about an hour’s fooling around.

  2. 5 out of 5

    I found it very easy to use. The keys feel great! If you set it up in your DAW using the right portals it works great.
