They both feature 25 velocity-sensitive keys with 9 playable octaves, 8 channel faders, 16 rotary knobs and 8 push/encoders and connect to your computer via USB. A Shift button allows for second layer control and choose between two performance scenes.
Full DAW transport section includes play, stop, rec, scene up/down, play/stop clips, overdub, set marker, marker left/right, cycle, tap and metronome.
An arpeggiator is also included with multiple modes and internal/external MIDI clock and Reloop added a Scale mode with 4 scales to choose from and a Chord mode.
The Keyfadr has a larger control panel that hosts 16 velocity sensitive trigger pads with backlit LEDs.
Both controllers are USB powered and Reloop gives non Ableton Live 9 users the ability to download additional MIDI mappings.
