PreSonus, the makers of Studio One, has announced ATOM, a new portable production and performance pad controller.
ATOM offers the user 16 pads and other controllers and connects to your computer via USB. It is compatible with most music production and performance software but it is tightly integrated with PreSonus Studio One. ATOM and Studio One integrate tightly so you can create quickly and easily. Enjoy blazingly fast, professional-style workflow with ATOM’s navigation, editing, and loop-point-creation features and transport controls.
ATOM comes with PreSonus’ powerful, yet easy-to-use Studio One® Artist recording and production software for Mac® and Windows®. Studio One enables you to compose, record, and produce your masterpiece without getting distracted by the tools, thanks to a straightforward design, a powerful file browser with extensive use of drag-and-drop, in-depth editing, and an Arranger Track that lets you experiment without losing previous work. It’s inherently Internet-savvy; comes with a wealth of effects plug-ins, virtual instruments, and loops; and can be expanded with Add-ons.
