Studio One with the PreSonus Atom. This groove box–style pad controller makes browsing instruments and creating tracks a breeze. You can also record and edit your projects, navigate Studio One’s timeline, and create loop points within your arrangements. The Atom features 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads with switchable polyphonic aftertouch, channel pressure, and MIDI CC message modes. You also get four rotary encoders and eight pad banks, allowing for new realms of hands-on exploration. Benefit from deep integration with Studio One, or use the Atom with another DAW using USB-MIDI. The Atom also includes selectable pad velocity curves and pressure thresholds, along with MIDI keyboard, note repeat, and full velocity modes.
The first thing we noticed about the Atom here at Sweetwater was how great its 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads feel. And with switchable polyphonic aftertouch, channel pressure, or MIDI CC message modes, they’re incredibly expressive as well. Four endless rotary encoders make tweaking parameters a breeze, while eight pad banks expand your number of pads to an impressive 128. Selectable pad velocity curves and pressure thresholds allow you to customize the Atom’s response for maximum expression. You also get MIDI keyboard, note repeat, and full velocity modes. Internal or external clocking and USB 2.0 connectivity round out the Atom’s feature set.
While the Atom works with any DAW via USB-MIDI, it really shines when you use it with Studio One. First of all, it’s automatically detected by Studio One, so no setup is required. Effortlessly navigate and choose an instrument from the Atom’s Instrument Browser. Create a new track, change an instrument’s preset, or change your project’s tempo right from the hardware. You can also set looping points, navigate Studio One’s timeline, zoom in and out on the timeline or events, and edit and quantize MIDI events. Beyond that, you get quick access to Studio One’s transport controls. Best of all, the Atom includes a copy of Studio One Artist to get you started! Learn More.
