Capture the beat whenever and wherever creativity strikes with PreSonus ATOM. An intuitive, musical, MIDI pad controller, ATOM's dynamic, ultra-sensitive pads will give you all the expression you need, whether you're making a beat, creating a driving synth line, or triggering sound effects and loops on the fly.

Tight integration with both Studio One and Ableton Live mean that you stay inspired without missing a beat. Your focus will be off the screen and on your performance - where it matters most.

Fully bus-powered by USB and compact enough to ride in your backpack with your laptop, ATOM is tightly integrated with Studio One and Impact XT. Impact XT is a powerful pad-style sampler with 16 pads, each with its own pitch, amplifier, and filter controls, all editable via ATOM so you can make adjustments on the fly.

More than just a pad controller, ATOM also allows you to quickly add virtual instruments, change presets, create loop points, control the Studio One transport, and more, allowing you to build dynamic performances and blazing fast productions.

Intuitive and easy-to-use, ATOM is more than just an expressive MIDI pad controller: It's a production and performance controller as well. Use the velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads to play your virtual instruments live, with incredible expressiveness. Navigate your session without looking at the screen. Automate filter sweeps with four responsive knobs. Wherever inspiration takes you, ATOM lets you focus on the music.
