Performances is all about expression. The Alto Professional LIVE series of MIDI keyboard controllers are not just simple controllers, the LIVE series are precise tools for musical expression that feel like a natural extension of the musician's passion and performance. The LIVE 88 represents the pinnacle of the LIVE series, which also hosts the LIVE 61, LIVE 49 and LIVE 25 controllers.
The LIVE 88 is not only beautiful on stage, it's stunning from behind the keys. Accompanying the sleek, silver finish are velocity-sensitive, semi-weighted keys that practically beg to be touched. Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels add additional means of expression and the built-in radial dial is used with the keys to send virtually any MIDI message anywhere on stage. Standard MIDI output allows LIVE 88 to speak fluently with other MIDI devices while the integrated USB port connects to any PC or Mac for complete software control. Connect your favorite sustain pedal using the input right on the back of the LIVE 88 and it can feel like playing a grand piano. Of course, once the performance starts the audience may never know the difference. Need to go beyond the 88 key range? No problem thanks to LIVE 88's Octave Shift buttons that let you extend your musical range up to 128 keys.
As you know, repeat performances and frequent travel can often be very hard on music gear. The LIVE 88 and its siblings were engineered to endure the rigors of even the most demanding performances and tours. Solid construction and tight-fitting joints are standard-issue on every LIVE series keyboard controller. With four sizes to choose from in the LIVE series, no venue is too large or too small. The LIVE 88 is also deceptively light. Weighing in slightly over 22 lbs., the LIVE 88 proves that you don't have to break your back to take this 88-key axe on the road.
Control every nuance of performance and take it on the road in style with the LIVE 88.
