Cakewalk announced the launch of the A-PRO Series of USB MIDI Controllers for Mac and PC.

The A-300 Pro, A-500 Pro and A-800 Pro are a brand new line of keyboard controllers developed in conjunction with Roland.

  • A-300 Pro — A 32-key USB MIDI keyboard
  • A-500 Pro — A 49-key USB MIDI keyboard
  • A-800 Pro — A 61-key USB MIDI keyboard
All A-PRO series keyboard controllers feature, according to Cakewalk:

The feel of a Roland-quality Instrument
  • A superior key mechanism providing aftertouch and increased sensitivity for a wide range of expressive dynamics
  • Rounded key assemblies for smooth and comfortable glissando
  • Selectable velocity curves to fine tune the A-PRO to your playing style
  • Roland's proprietary FPT (Fast Processing Technology) USB driver provides ultra-low latency and ensures subtleties of performances are captured

Ergonomic design puts everything at your fingertips
  • Backlit LED display makes it easy to monitor settings, especially when on stage
  • Controls and onboard settings are easily accessible and intelligently laid out
  • Over 45 fully assignable controls, including knobs, sliders, and buttons
  • Dedicated Transport section
  • Sure-grip Pitch Bend/Modulation Stick offers expressive control of both parameters simultaneously
  • Easy and streamlined connection with side panel ports

Total control
  • A-300PRO Editor for Mac and PC makes it a breeze to customize the controller for use with your favorite synth or DAW
  • When working in ACT (Active Controller Technology) mode, DAWs like the included SONAR LE will remap parameters automatically
  • Trigger clips, video effects and transitions from your A-PRO musical performance using any video hardware with V-LINK support
  • Expand playability with Sustain & Expression Pedals (available separately)

The Production Plus Pack
  • Three inspiring virtual instruments for Mac & PC:
  • Rapture LE
  • Cakewalk Sound Center
  • SONAR 8.5 LE, a special version of Cakewalk's professional recording software for Windows
