The first thing we noticed about the Atom here at Sweetwater was how great its 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads feel. And with switchable polyphonic aftertouch, channel pressure, or MIDI CC message modes, they’re incredibly expressive as well. Four endless rotary encoders make tweaking parameters a breeze, while eight pad banks expand your number of pads to an impressive 128. Selectable pad velocity curves and pressure thresholds allow you to customize the Atom’s response for maximum expression. You also get MIDI keyboard, note repeat, and full velocity modes. Internal or external clocking and USB 2.0 connectivity round out
the Atom’s feature set.
PreSonus Atom Features:
With the Atom, you’ll take control of your productions like never before, thanks to tight integration with Studio One and Ableton Live. This groove box-style controller is automatically detected by Studio One, so no setup is required. Effortlessly navigate and choose an instrument from the Atom’s Instrument Browser. Create a new track, change an instrument’s preset, or change your project’s tempo right from the hardware. You can also set looping points, navigate Studio One’s timeline, zoom in and out on the timeline or events, and edit and quantize MIDI events. Beyond that, you get quick access to Studio One’s transport controls. Ableton Live users will also find much to love here, as the Atom’s 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads make producing, playing virtual instruments, and triggering samples and loops expressive, flexible, and fun. Best of all, the Atom includes copies of Studio One Artist and Ableton Live Lite to get you started!
