Frequently Asked Questions 

 

How do you obtain the included software?

You can obtain the included software for the Alesis VX49 by registering the product on the Alesis website.  Here you can create your account, and then register your keyboard to have immediate access to your software downloads.  You can also use the included software download card and type the link alesis.com/softwaredownload in your web browser to obtain the software download.

 

Does the VX49 have pre-programmed sounds?

This does not have any built in sounds. It needs to be connected to a computer to be used with software that generates sound. 

 

What is the difference between the Roll function and Arpeggiator?

The Roll function is going to repeat the note or hit over and over, while the Arpeggiator will repeat and apply a pattern of other notes with it depending on the selection of arpeggiation you choose.  Also, if you choose the Latch feature while using the arpegiator, it will continue the pattern even after you let go of the keys.  You can even add in new notes and alter the pattern while in Latch mode by pressing more keys while the pattern in looping.

 

Do I need to install drivers for the Alesis VX49 to work on my PC/MAC?

Yes, if you are going to be using this with the included VIP software.  The driver can be found in your Alesis account when you register it here.  If you are not going to use the Alesis VX49 with the VIP software it will work as a class compliant midi controller with your software.
