Two assignable, real-time controllers let you filter and adjust your sound just like an analogue synthesizer.
10 brand new DSP effects can be assigned and controlled in real time for dynamic and expressive live performance.

The pitch bend wheel adjusts the pitch of the sound bringing voices like the Guitar, Sax and Trumpet to life.
Connectivity with audio and MIDI capabilities

Connecting to your iOS device adds a new dimension of MIDI control with apps.
