The Advance Keyboards give you unprecedented playability and unrestricted manipulation of any virtual instrument or effect with an interactive, full-colour display, complemented by performance focused hardware controls. Available in 25, 49, and 61 key sizes, the Advance Keyboards deftly fuse the power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation, so you can create like never before. The dividing line between software and hardware instruments is finally gone!
The Advance Keyboards transform computer based plugins into an entirely hands on playing experience. The keyboard surface features an integrated high resolution full-colour 4.3 inch display, providing real time control and feedback of all virtual instruments and effects. The screen instantly adapts itself to the selected plugin's controls, delivering immediate 1:1 access to the instrument/effect and various editable functions. Better yet, the Advance Keyboards and VIP v2.0 work with any supported VST virtual instrument or effect. Using the Virtual Instrument Player v2.0 (VIP) software application, your entire VSTi library is controlled by one application. VIP v2.0 operates as a plugin inside any major digital audio workstation (DAW) or as a stand alone application on both Mac and Windows operating systems.
