PreSonus® ATOM SQ Controller
Modern musicians, performers, and producers need to move quickly from programming drums and samples to playing synth lines and back again. ATOM SQ’s 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 has played a 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.
Deep integration with Studio One’s Pattern Editor allows for evolving step sequences that will bring your productions to life. You’ll build compositions faster than ever before using the built-in step sequencer in Studio One and ATOM SQ. It’s fast and easy for anyone who knows how to program a drum machine. Experimenting yields particularly rewarding results because ATOM SQ can constrain your performance to the scale of your choice. No more wrong notes!
ATOM SQ is also a unique Ableton Live controller, designed for production and live performance. You can launch clips and scenes during a performance, select devices and edit parameters, navigate tracks and scenes, control each track’s volume, panning, and send levels—plus do all your drum programming in Ableton from the ATOM SQ!
With its unique staggered-pad layout, contextual screen design, and customization tools, ATOM SQ lets you stay in the moment of creation.
