The Motor 61 master keyboard controller allows you to take total command over your virtual instruments and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Featuring amazingly-smooth action, motorised faders and touch-sensitive pads, the Motor 61 provides an unparalleled level of control for the ultimate creative expression. The 61 semi-weighted full-sized keys, 60 mm faders and backlit drums give you hands-on control over all the parameters of your favourite DAW. An incredible hardware-based arpeggiator enables you to instantly add arpeggios to software and hardware synths and create complex arrangements on the fly.

Motor 61's endless rotary encoders provide immediate feedback about your software, plus the convenient, backlit transport section puts all playback and record functions right at your fingertips. You get fast, easy-to-read information at-a-glance, thanks to Motor 61's spacious, backlit LCD screen. Behringer have also loaded this amazing controller with a variety of extremely-useful presets (and even more are on the way), so you can start creating quickly, without mapping or instant recall. Ready to go right out of the box, just connect to your computer and download the free audio recording, editing and podcasting software at www.behringer.com, which comes with 150 instruments and effects plug-ins. Motor 61 is the fast and easy way to get you back "in-touch" with every element of your creativity.

The keyboard features 61 expressive, full-sized keys with velocity and aftertouch to deliver a superior feel. You'll like the weighted feel of the large keys. And after you strike one of Behringer’s sturdy keys, it responds in ways that will please the most seasoned musician. Aftertouch will articulate your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or colour – whatever parameters you choose. Whether you have a heavy, or soft playing style, Motor 61 always responds to your touch.

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 motorised 60 mm touch-sensitive faders. Now you get the very same technology found in Behringer’s award-winning X32 digital mixing console to give you the ultimate control over your DAW mixer, soft synths or effect units.

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 fi re off your favourite sample or effect and save your keyboard for more expressive play.

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.
