This great new keyboard from Medeli shows that innovation and affordability can go hand in hand. The instrument distinguishes itself by the sampler, DJ styles and the XY pad. With the MK401 Medeli is trying to appeal to a younger group of musicians. Experimenting, creating and making music are the main focus of the MK401!
The XY-pad allows for a simple gesture of the finger to drastically alter the sound. This allows you to give your performance even more expression. There are several presets on board with which you can control different parameters. Below is an overview of the effects that can be controlled.
- LPF (Low Pass Filter)
- HPF (High pass filter)
No idea what is meant above? Dont panic! The MK401s user-friendly interface immediately challenges you to play with all its possibilities.
The MK401 is equipped with a microphone that sits above the display. By recording a sample (of a voice for example) the keyboard will automatically transpose this sample and extend it over the entire keyboard. So playing a background chorus on your instrument becomes a piece of cake. Besides the fact that this can result in very funny voice distortions, this tool can also be used very musically after a little practice.
