Hands-on command
The MasterControl's control surface functions allow hands-on command of HUI-compatible DAWs and external MIDI devices. Each of the eight channel strips is equipped with dedicated Solo, Record-Enable, Mute, and Select buttons. An LCD screen allows you to easily monitor controller feedback and enable customization of button and knob functions, and removeable, customize-able templates give you dedicated control over your DAW program and MIDI devices.

Comprehensive control surface
The great-feeling jog wheel can be used to shuttle, zoom and enter data, and is complemented by a dedicated transport control section. Two banks of eight fully-assignable buttons provide different functions for setting markers, loop points, and automation modes, while nine 100mm motorized faders and eight 360-degree virtual assignable knobs give you convenient control over your DAW's parameters.

Compatible with most DAW programs, the Alesis MasterControl comes bundled with Cubase LE recording software, so you can get started as soon as you open the box! It's an amazingly versatile solution for your digital recording needs!
