Plays as good as it looks
With 25 velocity-sensitive semi-weighted, Square front keys with aftertouch you can get the performance you need whether it be for the studio or up on the stage.
Light it Up
The VI 25 has 16 velocity-sensitive RGB trigger pads which is great for finger drumming. The beauty of RGB pads is you get visual feedback for velocity as well as just seeing what you are doing when the lights go down. Also the 8 assignable knobs are blue-backlit as well as the 24 assignable buttons.
Built in Roll mode
When creating fills nothing could be easier than hitting the Roll button and then hitting your specific time division. Great for drums or sample slices for that old skool sound.
Transport buttons at the ready so you don’t have to leave the VI25 for a mouse and get your flow interrupted. Included controls are Rewind, Fast-Forward, Stop, Play, Loop, and Record
For extra expansion the VI25 has midi out as well as a sustain input. You can run off USB power or if you would prefer to not have a computer in your set up you can also just plug the VI25 via a power cable, great for running other synths via midi.
