Take back the stage and experience untethered, wireless keytar performance with the Alesis Vortex Wireless. This dynamic keytar controller connects wirelessly to your computer and integrates with popular virtual instruments, plugins, and DAWs. For maximum stage and studio mobility, the PC- and Mac-compatible USB dongle uses a single USB port to create a reliable, wireless connection. Fastened with a piano black finish and intuitive ergonomic layout, Vortex Wireless offers comprehensive controller functionality in a stylish and stage-ready design. Create dynamic, expressive performances that the audience will both see and hear.
Shake It Up
Vortex Wireless offers unparalleled expressive control with an onboard MIDI-assignable accelerometer. Map the accelerometer to any software parameter, and create music that adapts to your performance. Glissando, pitch bends, vibrato, filter sweeps, and additional expressive actions can be conducted by simply altering the orientation of the Vortex Wireless. Now the sound of your music can match your performance style.
Onboard Control & Connectivity
Command the stage with 37 velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, 8 velocity-sensitive drum pads, and a row of physical knobs all laid out in an accessible, hands-on design. A series of neck controls provides further performance options: tweak sounds using the MIDI-assignable touch strip, expand melodic ideas with the octave range buttons, and activate sustain all while your right hand remains free to play. Vortex Wireless offers multiple connectivity options and comes equipped with USB-MIDI and MIDI Out.
Virtual Synth and DAWs Included
Vortex Wireless comes bundled with a versatile, high-definition virtual synthesizer designed specifically for it. The Vortex I, by SONiVOX, expands the sonic pallet of your Vortex Wireless with ambient pads, edgy leads, wobbly basses, and more. Vortex Wireless interfaces directly with the software so you can tweak your sounds to taste from any place on stage. For performing, producing, and improvising, Ableton Live Lite is included and enables you to explore your musical ideas in real-time. Also included is Ignite, by AIR Music Tech, a powerful piece of music creation software that lets you compose, write, and record songs with a straightforward workflow.
