Presonus jumps into a whole new product category with the release of its new Atom production and performance pad controller. Atom has 16 RGB-backlit pads on it and comes bundled with Studio One Artist production software to let you both create and perform. If you’re not a Studio One user, Atom is compatible with most other music production and performance applications.
What does Atom give you? The little performance powerhouse offers flexible control of virtual instruments and real-time triggering of samples and loops using 16 full-size, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads that can send polyphonic aftertouch, channel pressure, or MIDI CC messages, plus 20 buttons, four programmable rotary encoders and eight pad banks that can be assigned in multiple ways. It also includes MVP Loops content custom-designed for Atom.
Stock will be available in Australia late October and Atom will go for a street price of $249.
