Finding a portable, but fully featured MIDI controller is no easy task. Typically, travel solutions had smaller keys, or a reduced number of keys that significantly impacted their usability. That is why the Folding Controller 49 was conceived; a fully featured, portable MIDI controller that offers full width keys, across four octaves and fits into a small bag or rucksack.
- To add to the amazing convenience of the Carry-on controller, its internal Li-ion battery is USB rechargeable
- The velocity curve is user customisable using the PC/Mac editor
- The Arpeggiator can sync to external clock sources for seamless integration into your DAW
- The transport controls can be remapped to control other MIDI parameters using the PC/ Mac editor
