评论:爱丽斯涡无线Keytar

There's normally two camps at music school: guitars and keyboards. But what happens when the two worlds collide? Alesis feel this would bring reason for a keytar, and a wireless one at that!  

我有一个秘密:我爱keytars!我什至不留长发,但我爱他们一样。还有一些有关的转移我的舒适区出来,未来与线的概念,你可以用单手玩的跳开始我的创造力。在爱丽斯涡无线取keytar类了几步,给你更多的控制,以及内置的,可靠的无线接入到您选择的声音。让我们来瞧瞧吧!


在您的指尖

Vortex Front—This keytar gives you the control over your sound that you never had in the 80’…

涡FrontThis keytar让你在你的声音控制,你从来没有在80

漩涡无线​​既有传统的MIDI和USB出局,让您可以连接到你的装备在各种不同的方式。还有一个无线USB适配器,这将使你的无线连接,以大约200英尺。

在涡本身,也有控制选项万千。 37键力度感应和触后能干,和8鼓垫/采样触发是速度敏感的为好。你的左手可以访问一个MIDI可编程触摸条,除了标准的八度移位和维持按钮。也有相当大的交通管制,除了修补选择控件。你可以告诉大家,这个控制器被设计为您提供通过你的声音库从台前能力真正页面。

我得到了我的磐石移动

有内置的漩涡嵌入式,MIDI可编程加速度计。这可以让你当你提出的涡成垂直位置触发特定的MIDI等参数。你可以提高一个合成器的补丁放到反馈领土的驱动器时,你提高了脖子,或触发大规模延迟,当你做你的摇滚力量slidethe可能性是无穷无尽的!对于那些你们谁觉得这是一个有点噱头,不worrythe功能是很容易的从一涡任何补丁禁用。

良好的投资

Vortex IO–The Vortex Wireless has a plethora of I/O available.

涡IOThe涡无线有I / O可登塔。

虽然我从一开始就计划使用的涡与我的大量联络卡片样本库,我很高兴地发现了一套高品质的声音打包带的漩涡。 SONiVOX束中的一个免费副本涡我的DVI ,一个定制合成器专为心目中的Vortex的功能设计。现实的采样乐器是由空气中的音乐的形式提供点燃 ,并有Ableton现场精简版的甚至包括副本。

编程漩涡

Editor Software—The Vyzex editor software is easy to use and dare I say… fun?

编辑SoftwareThe Vyzex编辑软件很容易使用,我敢说好玩吗?

补丁编辑器包含在涡称为Vyzex涡流,这是既广泛且易于使用。当然,使用涡与任何主级或联络卡片可以否定需要一个补丁编辑器,最现代化的主机集成了“MIDI学习”功能,但它是很好的了解,如果您想要使用的涡与特定的DAW或硬件合成器,爱丽斯有你覆盖。

我发现Vyzex是相当简单的,用简洁明了的指示成立的漩涡工作,我想要的方式。我当时特别激动尝试漩涡与我的Korg克罗诺斯,和我的兴奋是有道理的。漩涡无线​​立时确认,而我能够迅速地将其映射到MIDI通道2,并有机会获得所有我以前创建的2键盘补丁。现在的漩涡已经成为我去到'顶级键盘“,并reallywhy不是?即使在键盘支架的标准设置有我需要的所有控制选项!

结论

漩涡无线​​不正是它应该做的。它提供了为您的VI或其它MIDI键盘控制选项以难以置信的价格合理的数组。它可以由电池,USB或AC供电,是一个真正灵活的一件装备。这让我觉得有点傻在ebay上购买雅马哈KX5几年前超过一倍的价格。如果你想有一个keytar,您可以与您的计算机或合成器工作站设置看看没有进一步的快速整合。

I am a keyboard player from Goa, India and I'm really interested in using the alesis vortex wireless with my kronos x 61. Is it as simple as just connecting the USB dongle to the USB port behind my kronos? I haven't purchased the vortex wireless yet so before I do, I need to know that's possible. Otherwise I'd rather pick up the roland lucina 09.
Matt Vanacoro
That is exactly how it worked with my Kronos X 88!
Roy
Thank you for your quick reply Matt. I am technically not very savvy at all so please bear with me when I ask what else would I have to do? How do I assign the tones of the kronos that I'd like to use on the alesis? Bearing in mind I've never used midi before :) thanks for your help.
Matt Vanacoro
I don't think I could type that out entirely, it would be an entire article onto itself! However, to get you started - if you plug in the dongle for the Vortex then it will automatically play whatever patch you have selected, with no configuration. Whatever sound is called up on your Kronos will be triggered with the Vortex. If you want to go more complicated, do a little research on how to do a MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE message. You can use that to send a message to the Kronos to switch sounds. Good luck!
Roy
Thank you for your time Matt. Appreciate it. Cheers...
