Aftertouch will imbue your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or color – whatever parameters you choose.

Much like MOTOR 49's keyboard, the back-lit drum pads are velocity and pressure sensitive, letting you take your drum performance and sample or loop triggering to the next level. Sequence beats, or fire off your favorite sample or effect and save your keyboard for more expressive play.
8 illuminated Rotary Encoders
When switching between plug-ins, MOTOR 49's rotary encoders automatically, and visually let you know where plug-in parameters are set. The 8 ultra-precise, brightly, illuminated encoders and LED collars provide a clear and instant overview of all software parameters at all times – allowing you to stay in the creative moment.
Drum Pads on Deck
