Producing music can be quite challenging sometimes, not only from a technical but also from a financial point of view. Getting all the right equipment can be quite expensive and spending all those money can be quite frustrating. When i buy a new piece of equipment i make sure i have looked everywhere for the right bargain.
Today i want to introduce you to a super duper piece of equipment, the Alesis V61.
ALESIS V61 THE “ALL IN ONE” KEYBOARD.
This keyboard is basically “ALL IN ONE”. I’ve owned one for quite a while now and i have no intention to get rid of it anytime soon. Do you know what’s the thing i love the most about this keyboard?? It is very very cheap!!!!!!!
I love this keyboard so much because it allows me to do pretty much everything. It has 61 keys which are more then plenty unless you are a pianist (if you are one you should look into digital piano). It also has 8 pads which are great for creating drums, pitch and modulation wheel and finally 4 knobs and 4 button which you can map with your DAW. The Alesis V61 has pretty much everything you need to make nice composition. The Alesis V61 has non weighted key but it has the “Velocity-Sensitive” keys. Thanks to the Velocity-Sensitive keys the Alesis V61 becomes a semi-weighted keyboard (not sure if it made sense to you). The Alesis V61 also offers the “After-Touch” function which gives a lot of dynamic to the keys being played.
I use it pretty much every time i am in the studio and i never had a problem with it. You can also modify the settings of the keyboard and change the way it responds trough the “V Editor” which you can download for free on the Alesis website.
I highly advice this keyboard to anyone. Ultra compact, plug and play, very cheap and all in one; that’s the ALESIS V61.
