The PreSonus ATOM Pad Controller is a great addition to the PreSonus Studio One Suite, which allows you to browse instruments and create tracks with its touchpad interface. The ATOM features 16 pressure and velocity sensitive pads that sport switchable polyphonic aftertouch, MIDI CC, and channel pressure functions. There are 8 pad banks and a whopping 128 total sounds. Alongside creating rhythmic compositions, you can also record and edit your work, scroll through the timeline, and create loop points. No composers studio is complete without a pad controller like this.
With the PreSonus Atom there are eight pad banks and four rotary style encoders that open up the world of creativity with endless options. Designed to work intuitively with Studio One, you will find your process transformed, as this pad is auto-detected, with no setup required. Effortlessly choose from the instrument browser, and change your tempo at your fingertips. From there, you can play with the variety of velocity curves, thresholds, MIDI keyboards, and much more, until you find that perfect sound. However, you can also use this with any DAW via USB-MIDI connectivity.
One of the most important things in a Pad controller is the basic feel, and you won’t be disappointed with the Atom. The pads are expressive, but not too sensitive, and respond well during use. A very handy addition to your studio.
