Featuring amazingly-smooth action, motorized faders and touch-sensitive pads, the MOTÖR 61 provides an unparalleled level of control for the ultimate creative expression. The 61 semi-weighted full-sized keys, 60 mm faders and backlit drums give you hands-on control over all the parameters of your favorite DAW. An incredible hardware-based arpeggiator enables you to instantly add arpeggios to software and hardware synths and create complex arrangements on the fly.

MOTÖR 61's endless rotary encoders provide immediate feedback about your software, plus the convenient, backlit transport section puts all playback and record functions right at your fingertips. You get fast, easy-to-read information at-a-glance, thanks to MOTÖR 61's spacious, backlit LCD screen. We've also loaded this amazing controller with a variety of extremely-useful presets (and even more are on the way), so you can start creating quickly, without mapping or instant recall. Ready to go right out of the box, just connect to your computer and download the free audio recording, editing and podcasting software at www.behringer.com, which comes with 150 instruments and effects plug-ins. MOTÖR 61 is the fast and easy way to get you back "in-touch" with every element of your creativity.

An Awesome and Illuminating Experience

The keyboard features 61 expressive, full-sized keys with velocity and aftertouch to deliver a superior feel. You'll like the weighted feel of the large keys. And after you strike one of our sturdy keys, it responds in ways that will please the most seasoned musician. Aftertouch will imbue your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or color – whatever parameters you choose. Whether you have a heavy, or soft playing style, MOTÖR 61 always responds to your touch.

Faders that Dance with Your Music

The days of keyboard players setting up a separate MIDI fader controller are finally over – a new day of empowerment and ease-of-use has dawned, thanks to MOTÖR 61's 9 motorized 60 mm touch-sensitive faders. Now you get the very same technology found in our award-winning X32 digital mixing console to give you the ultimate control over your DAW mixer, soft synths or effect units.

Dedicated, Sensitive Drum Pads

Much like MOTÖR 61's keyboard, the back-lit drum pads are velocity and pressure sensitive, letting you take your drum performance and sample or loop triggering to the next level. Sequence beats, or fire off your favorite sample or effect and save your keyboard for more expressive play.

8 illuminated Rotary Encoders

When switching between plug-ins, MOTÖR 61's rotary encoders automatically, and visually let you know where plug-in parameters are set. The 8 ultra-precise, brightly, illuminated encoders and LED collars provide a clear and instant overview of all software parameters at all times – allowing you to stay in the creative moment.

Drum Pads On Deck

When it comes to create really-captivating drum tracks – MOTÖR 61's dynamic drum pads make all the difference! By providing total control over soft synth drum sounds, with a real drum feel that simply must be experienced, 8 velocity and pressure-sensitive backlit drum pads re-define the ultimate drum and sample-loop performance.

Automatic Mapping

The MOTÖR 61 works right out of the box, with MIDI and Mackie Control* modes that automatically map all 61 keys to commonly used parameters of popular software instruments and audio workstations. Plus we offer free user presets for your favorite setup, including specific software/hardware combinations.

Transport Always Ready for Your Inspiration

The backlit transport section on the MOTÖR 61 provides quick, fingertip access to your playback and record modes – and swapping between faders, encoders and pad banks is as simple as the press of a button. Easy – amazingly easy!

Arpeggiate and Unleash Your Creativity

The hardware-based arpeggiator lets you add arpeggios on the fly, helping you create complex arrangements. Electro-Pop and EDM are filled with arpeggios and the MOTÖR 61 adds this ability to ANY soft synth with the most-advanced arpeggiator in the industry.
