The aptly named “Songmaker” guitar is the perfect instrument for expressing your creative ideas.

Alesis Q88 MKII 88-Key USB-MIDI Keyboard Controller

Alesis Q88 MKII 88-Key USB-MIDI Keyboard Controller

$299.00

Typically, after the initial creative process of the song is complete (chord progression, melody, lyrics, etc.), the next step is the arrangement of the song. This can often come in the form of the addition of drums/percussion, bass, and orchestration (strings, brass, woodwinds, etc.) depending upon creative preference. Equipped with 88 velocity-sensitive semi-weighted keys, 5 expansion packs - including a multi-genre beat production pack, and 4 virtual instruments - multitimbral workstation, analog synth, vintage drum machine, and classic organ, the Alesis Q88 MKII is an essential tool in every songwriter’s bag.
