The sustain button should take on all new uses, particularly for editing, with all of the pads to press and knobs to twist until that perfect sound appears. The built-in Arpeggiator is to create sparkling, staccato leads and driving bass-lines in a variety of time denominations and patterns. The eight back-lit, velocity-sensitive pads are great for firing one-shot samples and sequencing drum patterns.

The immediacy of a hardware synthesizer combined with the flexibility of a software based solution. The Arturia – Analog Experience The Player is a compact MIDI keyboard controller. The Player comes in an aluminium and wooden case designed specifically for durability and cost saving. The compact, lightweight and rugged designed make the portable controller an ideal instrument for contemporary and mobile musicians. The Analog Experience – The Player features 25-key velocity-sensitive keyboard with full action effect, a cross-platform virtual instruments – stand-alone and VST/AU/RTAS plug-in, with 1,000 built-in synths sounds selected from Arturia Classic Synths line of virtual instruments, like ARP 2600V, CS-80V, Jupiter-8V, Minimoog V, Modular Moog V, Prophet V, and Prophet VS.

Analog Experience – The Player is a powerful and user-friendly instrument. Featuring the very best of Arturia’s signature sounds created using TAE ® sound engine, the sounds are filtered by instrument, type, style and characteristics. Besides, the controller is compatible with any MIDI hardware and software. With 1,000 presets sounds selecting the sounds you want is also a breeze. And user can also filter and organize presets view with ease. User can search sounds according to individual’s criteria by filtering base on instrument, type of sound , style or characteristics, and alternatively, find presets according to these filtered choices. Additionally, user can organize presets view by Name, Instrument, Type, Polyphony, CPU usage, Favourite or User Presets. The modulation joystick is easy to operate though most user would prefer wheels but, to save space and cost perhaps, it is the best alternative.

The Player is the best way to get these signature sounds at a budget. In fact, The Player makes the analog experience more available to the masses. In my opinion, an incredibly affordable package with a wealth of Arturia’s best analog sounds and the ease of accessing all the presets are the biggest immediate sell for this simple, small and lightweight portable keyboard.
