Exceptional playability, incredible expression
Taking centre stage on the GXP 49 are the 49 semi-weighted full-size keys that feature velocity and aftertouch, allowing for unlimited expression and creativity. Play with tremendous confidence knowing that every nuance of sound will be captured with precision. Whether you're after huge crashing chords or softer melodic phrases, you can trust in the detailed translation this keyboard offers. And to enhance your playing even further, large pitch bend and modulation wheels are included.
The control is in your hands...
What sets the GXP 49 apart from conventional MIDI keyboards is the vast array of onboard controls. The streamlined control panel allows you to get in-depth when it comes to integrating the GXP 49 with your favourite DAW whilst onboard transport controls eliminate the need for your mouse. Navigate your music software using just the keyboard - you'll be working quicker and easier than ever. It also features track selection and volume control, as well as providing the ability to open and close DAW windows.
The Repeat Engine for endless rhythmic possibilities
Innovation does not go amiss on the GXP 49. At your fingertips you'll have the Repeat Engine, a feature that enables you to create exhilarating rhythms. Explore the wonders of five different trigger modes and go from free-flowing swing styles to strict, quantised rhythms effortlessly. The Repeat function is guaranteed to instil inspiration as you discover new rhythms and come up with new, exciting ideas.
Extensive connectivity options
The rear panel of the GXP 49 showcases an array of outputs and inputs for brilliant versatility. You can connect any expression pedal and footswitch or even connect a Y-cable adapter to the footswitch socket in order to utilise two independent switches. There is also a 5-pin MIDI out jack and an external power supply socket which is superbly useful for powering the keyboard when not connected via USB.
Go even further with Nektarine
Innovation does not stop there. The custom Nektarine plugin control software lets you do so much more than you could ever dream of. Load and use up to 16 VST, VST3 or AU instrument plugins simultaneously, and even define keyboard zones, layers and splits from all of your loaded plugins. The GXP 49 has dedicated buttons for direct control of patches and plugin slots and you can save your plugin settings, as well as the combination of plugins into a multi-patch file. This allows you to recall the various VST combos via the touch of a button.
Complete with Cubase LE & Retrologue 2 VST synthesizer
The keyboard comes with a free licence for Cubase LE. Cubase LE is a streamlined version of the award-winning DAW from Steinberg. It allows you to record, edit, arrange and export music with ease. With over 5GB of content (including sounds and loops) as well as Halion Sonic SE which includes over 180 instrument presets, this software lets you record up to 16 audio tracks and eight instruments simultaneously.
Create and inspire yourself with the Retrologue 2 VST synthesizer. This VST synth from Steinberg captures the essence of the synthesizer, emulating the classic analog warmth and grit of vintage synths.
