An Awesome and Illuminating Experience
The keyboard features 61 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 articulate your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or color – whatever parameters you choose. Whether you have a heavy, or soft playing style, MOTOR 61 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 61’s 9 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 61’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 61’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.



Transport Always Ready for Your Inspiration
The backlit transport section on the MOTOR 61 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!

  1. 5 out of 5

    The keyboard action is excellent though as a midi controller it has no sound of its own so the second question in the tell us more section made no sense. As a 61 key keyboard it is portable but only just. The user manual is sparse and could use improvement.

  2. 4 out of 5

    Best midi controller I’ve ever owned. Unbelievably affordable for the quality and options.Motorized faders and much more for a ridiculously low price. I had no trouble at all getting it configured correctly. Build quality is much higher than what you would expect for the price. So many options and presets, perfect to control my Synths and DAW.

  3. 4 out of 5

    I’ve a lot of keyboard over the years. I wanted some sliders to control MIDI VSTi’s. This does the job well but it going to take some work. I like the keybed but it does feel like one or two keys are firmer than the rest. I can live with that
