Aftertouch will articulate your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or color - whatever parameters you choose. Whether you have a heavy, or soft playing style, MOTOR 61 always responds to your touch.
Faders that Dance with Your Music:
The days of keyboard players setting up a separate MIDI fader controller are finally over - a new day of empowerment and ease-of-use has dawned, thanks to MOTOR 61's 9 motorized 60 mm touch-sensitive faders. Now you get the very same technology found in our award-winning X32 digital mixing console to give you the ultimate control over your DAW mixer, soft synths or effect units.
Dedicated, Sensitive Drum Pads:
Much like MOTOR 61's keyboard, the back-lit drum pads are velocity and pressure sensitive, letting you take your drum performance and sample or loop triggering to the next level. Sequence beats, or fire off your favorite sample or effect and save your keyboard for more expressive play.
8 Illuminated Rotary Encoders:
When switching between plug-ins, MOTOR 61's rotary encoders automatically, and visually let you know where plug-in parameters are set. The 8 ultra-precise, brightly, illuminated encoders and LED collars provide a clear and instant overview of all software parameters at all times - allowing you to stay in the creative moment.

By providing total control over soft synth drum sounds, with a real drum feel that simply must be experienced, 8 velocity and pressure-sensitive backlit drum pads re-define the ultimate drum and sample-loop performance.
The MOTOR 61 works right out of the box, with MIDI and Mackie Control* modes that automatically map all 61 keys to commonly used parameters of popular software instruments and audio workstations. Plus we off er free user presets for your favorite setup, including specific software/ hardware combinations.
