    • Alesis VX49 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      DIRECT CONTROL OF VIRTUAL INSTRUMENTS

      What is VIP? It’s game-changing software that empowers you to be a more creative and expressive player than ever before. VIP is the first and only music software that enables you to control your entire VST instrument library directly from your keyboard. Switch patches from all your VSTs in one place, instantly access pre-mapped plugin parameters for hands-on knob tweaking, customize preset loading from multiple VSTs using Setlists, and much more. VIP extends the capabilities beyond what any DAW offers by empowering you to quickly create and play “multis.” A multi allows you to combine up to 8 patches from 1 or more plugins, with the ability to layer, mix and pan these patches all at once. VIP brings you an intelligent patch browser that works across all your VST instruments to let you quickly find sounds based on instrument type, timbre, style or articulation, or simply explore patches you never knew you had!
