It possesses 8 fully assignable rotary controllers for real-time control of plugins and virtual instruments even MIDI hardware. Each of these controllers, plus the mod wheel, can be assigned to a different MIDI channel which means that multiple plug-ins can be controlled on separate channels. Powerful stuff indeed!

The keyboard also features pitchbend wheel, modulation wheel (fully assignable) making 9 assignable controllers , transpose function, octave shift, program and bank change, 3 digit LED display, 10 non volatile program memory buttons (stored even when keyboard is unplugged), a sustain pedal socket and can also act as a USB to MIDI interface.
