PreSonus - ATOM (16-Pad USB MIDI Controller)

ATOM Production and Performance Pad Controller from PreSonus lets you capture the beat whenever and wherever creativity strikes. It's an intuitive, musical MIDI pad controller that features 16 dynamic, ultra-velocity- and -pressure-sensitive pads that'll provide you with all the expression you need, whether you’re building a beat, creating a driving synth bassline, or triggering sound effects and loops on the fly.

You can use the 4 programmable rotary encoders to automate levels and filter sweeps, plus transport controls let you stay in the moment while still producing. It also features tight integration with both Studio One® and Ableton® Live, letting you stay inspired without missing a beat, keeping your focus off the screen and on your performance—where it matters most.
