PreSonus reveals the ATOM - Production and Performance Pad Controller

PreSonus

PreSonus has released the ATOM pad controller, a compact performance and production controller designed to allow the user to produce beats, play virtual instruments, and trigger sound effects and loops in real time with expressiveness and flexibility. ATOM has 16 full-size, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads with selectable pad velocity curves and pad pressure thresholds, 8 assignable pad banks, and other controls.

ATOM connects to a computer via USB and is compatible with most music software but it is optimized when used with the included Studio One Artist production software for Mac and Windows. When used with Studio One, ATOM enables the user to browse virtual instruments and add them to a session, change instrument presets, create loop points and navigate the timeline, change song tempo, edit and quantize MIDI events, zoom in and out on the timeline or events, control Studio One's transport, and more.

Along with the 16 RGB pads and 8 pad banks, there are 4 programmable rotary encoders and 20 assignable buttons, enabling the user to navigate and set more parameters faster. MIDI Keyboard mode, Note Repeat mode, and Full Velocity mode enable the user to custom control their instruments.

In addition to production applications, the velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads are made for playing virtual instruments live onstage. A user can set up the pad banks for a full virtual drum set and perform beats and even play multiple ATOMs at once.

A collection of virtual instruments, loops, and drum kits are included with Studio One Artist. ATOM also comes with a carefully curated MVP Loops loop and one-shot library custom-designed for ATOM. More content is available from the online PreSonus Shop.

Price: $149.95.
