Smart Chord allows the user to play full chords with a single key, making production more efficient and customising each key’s chord structure.
Smart Scale technology allows you to choose from 16 variations of scales to play only notes in the select scale. No longer will you make the mistake of playing ‘wrong’ notes or chords.

Next Generation Sound
The Note Repeat feature produces a repeated rhythmic pattern in relation to the chosen note, with options to use the feature in Latch mode or activated momentarily, offering various production and live sound techniques that will allow you to bring your sound to the next level.
Adjust the on-board Arpeggiator’s timing and rhythm by changing the time-division setting found on your keyboard or adjusting your DAW’s tempo setting to find the optimal range. Determine the length at which each note is played by controlling the time-division settings.
The advanced custom key bed has been developed to include Assignable Aftertouch, allowing users to have greater expressive control over their production and DAW. It enables you to change the feel and dynamic of a production piece by scanning for changes in pressure to each keypress, influencing the mood and emotion delivered from each note and key.
