Alesis Q Series MKII MIDI Keyboards


Pro audio brand Alesis has unveiled the MKII iteration of its Q Series MIDI controllers, new 49- and 88-note models joined by the super-compact Qmini.


Alesis Q Series MKII MIDI keyboards promise no-nonsense performance at a low price.


Alesis Q series MIDI keyboards might be short on bells and whistles, but what they do offer is an amazing price-per-key ratio. Today sees the launch of two updated models – the Q49 MKII and Q88 MKII – and the all-new Qmini.


The idea with each keyboard is to offer no-nonsense performance. The new Qmini features 32 mini keys, the Qmini is very much the baby of the family – you will have octave, transpose, pitchbend, modulation and sustain buttons, whereas, the Q49 MKII and Q88 MKII both have full-size keys and proper pitch/mod wheels.


Additionally, all the models are plug-and-play over USB, with the Q88 MKII’s 5-pin MIDI port also enabling standalone operation (providing you plug in a power supply). This largest model also benefits from semi-weighted keys, whereas. the other two have synth-action keys.


The Qmini, Q49 MKII and Q88 MKII are available now priced at $59, $109 and $229 respectively. Find out more on the Alesis website.
