How to Get the Most out of your CTRL-49

The M-Audio CTRL49 bursted on to the scene earlier this year, introducing users to a VIP-enabled, 49 key premium USB/MIDI controller that merges the creative power of VST instruments/FX plugins with a professional grade DAW fader and transport control.

The integrated Virtual Instrument Player software included with the CTRL-49 provides unprecedented dominion over your VST plug-ins from the controller itself, providing a innovative solution to all in one control. With a full colour display, the CTRL-49 provides the user with unprecedented visual control and the ability to effectively locate all your plug-in parameters.

Another distinctive feature of the CTRL-49 is the VIP's ability to create multi chains straight from the keyboard. Such chains are often used by producers who wish to combine a number of different matches from 1 or more plugins. With this, you are credited with boundless opportunities to mould, layer and mix your own sound. Additionally, you can pan each patch in order to achieve an immersive soundscape that allows unprecedented creative options.

With the M-Audio CTRL49 MIDI Controller comes an expansive collection of virtual instruments and sounds, as well as Ableton Live Lite. With this revered DAW you can explore the full potential of the CTRL49 MIDI Controller, utilising pro grade software to achieve your desired sound.

Also included in the bundle is Hybrid 3.0, the definitive virtual synthesizer. With an extensive range of parameters and controls the Hybrid 3.0 allows you to further explore your creative potential whilst implementing dedicated state of the art software.

For a detailed demonstration of the controller check out the video below where production specialist Nick Trikakis outlines the various features and functionality of the CTRL49 Smart Keyboard Controller.
