Get Lost in the Groove with this Hands-on Controller

The PreSonus ATOM SQ is a performance-based hybrid MIDI controller that liberates you from the constraints of in-the-box beat production! Part sequencer, part performance pad, and part keyboard, the Atom SQ is the most flexible PreSonus MIDI controller yet. Build patterns quickly with the TR-style step sequencer. Finger drum grooves with the satisfyingly responsive pads. Launch expressive arpeggiations. Or lay down basslines and melodies —all from the same controller! The PreSonus ATOM SQ features deep integration with PreSonus Studio One and Ableton Live, presenting a seamless extension of those DAWs’ capabilities. And, with 8 assignable rotary controllers and an expressive touchstrip, the ATOM SQ is endlessly customizable to fit your performance style. Beatmakers and electronic music producers are inspired by ATOM SQ’s intuitive, fun, interactive design. So, put down your mouse and get into the groove with the PreSonus ATOM SQ.

Note: Requires Studio One v5 or later for full integration support.

All the best groove-box-inspired elements and more

While computer-based beat production is unmatched in terms of flexibility, there’s nothing like creating grooves on a tactile interface. To that end, PreSonus equipped the ATOM SQ with 32 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, laid out in a TR-style staggered configuration. For those familiar with old-school drum machines, it will feel instantly familiar. Yet, the ATOM SQ is full of new-school tricks, including a context-sensitive screen, which changes its display depending on what you’re doing, and backlit RGB LED pads for color coordinating your samples and loops. To fully immerse you in a performance, the ATOM SQ features an expressive touchstrip for controlling parameters such as filter cutoff, pan, and LFO rate, and its pads support polyphonic aftertouch. Additionally, a Constrain to Scale feature locks you into a musical scale, so you can freestyle without accidentally hitting wonky notes!

Tight integration with Studio One and Ableton Live

With the Atom, you’ll take control of your productions like never before, thanks to tight integration with Studio One and Ableton Live. This hybrid sequencer and groove-box style controller is automatically detected by Studio One, so no setup is required. Effortlessly navigate and choose an instrument from the instrument browser. Create a new track, change an instrument’s preset, or change your project’s tempo right from the hardware. You can also set looping points, navigate Studio One’s timeline, zoom in and out on the timeline or events, and edit and quantize MIDI events. And the step sequencer functions are seamlessly paired to Studio One’s pattern editor. Beyond that, you get quick access to Studio One’s transport controls. Ableton Live users will also find much to love here, as the Atom SQ’s 32 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads make producing, playing virtual instruments, and triggering samples and loops expressive, flexible, and fun. Best of all, the Atom includes copies of Studio One Artist and Ableton Live Lite to get you started!

Superb software package included

Your purchase includes Studio One Artist and everything you need to start recording via your computer. Plus, to take your recordings to the next level, you get the Studio Magic plug-in suite.
