The Presonus ATOM SQ was designed as a versatile and expressive MIDI pad controller for contemporary music production. Its unique design is optimized for both classic TR-style 16-step beat sequencing and drum pattern editing in Studio One or playing instruments and launching clips in Ableton Live—yet its staggered and RGB-lit 32-pad configuration is instantly familiar to anyone who’s played a controller keyboard. Advanced features let you change the keyboard scale, and a built-in arpeggiator and user-configurable touch strip make the ATOM SQ the most expressive controller you’ll ever use.
Music creation made fun, fast, and easy; ATOM SQ is all about creating a groove while in the groove. Just set up a couple of loop points and bang out your beats and melodies on the fly, without getting bogged down in kludgy menu dives, setup, or configuration. A staggered 16-pad layout ensures that both keyboard players and drum programmers will be right at home, and the pads’ pressure sensitivity allows for truly expressive performances.
Make ATOM SQ your own—the eight assignable rotary encoders can be mapped to control nearly whatever you like, and RGB LEDs in the pads make for gorgeous, intuitive color-coordination of your samples and loops. Studio One Artist and Ableton Live Lite are included, so you’ll be making beats on day one—and its bus-powered, portable design means you can create nearly anywhere.
Keyboards and mice are for spreadsheets and flowcharts. Get an ATOM SQ and sculpt your music by hand.
