The beauty of owning the CommandKey88 is that it's your highly-customisable, blank canvas. You will feel artistically validated by owning this luxury controller as you are no longer restrained by uncompromising, pre-determined controls. Feel empowered by this all-inclusive design.
You will have an MPC, MIDI controller, and keyboard all housed into one unique and innovative package. Thanks to this, making music will never be easier. The high-quality LCD display interface guarantees quick, and accurate programming. With both mains and USB power, Subzero give you with the best of both worlds allowing you to use the CommandKey88 in the studio as well as on-the-road.
Hands on control
The CommandKey88 features five transport buttons that are used for MMC (MIDI Machine Control). These are Skip Back, Skip Forwards, Record, Stop, and Play. These can also be used to control your DAW. Thanks to the plug and play design, the MIDI controller can be used on any Windows or Mac computer without the need for complex and time-consuming installation drivers.
You'll find it hard to believe you're not playing the real thing when using the SubZero CommandKey88 MIDI Controller. This is thanks to the innovative velocity and pad curve functions. Every time you touch a key or pad, a MIDI note message is sent with a velocity value that ranges between the minimum and maximum limits. This value indicates how hard you have pressed the key. Subzero understands that no two playing styles are the same, and because of this have included six different velocity curves. This enables you to capture the subtlest of nuances that will resonate with the listener.
Subzero's inclusion of multiple keyboard modes will help inspire you to create interesting sonic textures, adding a new lease of life and excitement to your performances and recordings.
Dual mode allows you to combine two sounds together so they can be played simultaneously on one key. This is excellent for triggering string and horn performances in unison without the need for additional performers, or for effortlessly adding a bass line that needs to mimic the lead instrument.
Split mode enables you to control two sounds simultaneously by selecting one side of the keyboard to focus on one source and the other side on a different sound. The keyboard's default split starting point is middle C. You are free to change the split point to suit any task.
Control assign mode is where you can really get creative. Feel empowered by the ability to assign any control number to any physical controller, such as knob, pad, strip, or button. This versatility allows the CommandKey88 to cater to your every want and need.
