PreSonus ATOM SQ - Hybrid MIDI Keyboard/Pad Performance and Production Controller

The Presonus ATOM SQ is a versatile performance and production controller ideal for creating hip-hop, EDM, or anything in between. A staggered 32-pad layout makes it instantly recognisable as both a keyboard and a TR-style step sequencer. Deep integration with included Ableton Live Lite and Studio One Artist gives you a complete production toolkit right out of the box.

Modern musicians, performers, and producers need to move quickly from programming drums and samples to playing synth lines and back again. ATOM SQ was designed as a versatile and expressive MIDI pad controller for contemporary music production. Its unique design is optimized for both classic TR-style 16-step beat sequencing and drum pattern editing in Studio One or playing instruments and launching clips in Ableton Live—yet its staggered and RGB-lit 32-pad configuration is instantly familiar to anyone who’s played a controller keyboard. Advanced features let you change the keyboard scale, and a built-in arpeggiator and user-configurable touch strip make the ATOM SQ the most expressive controller you’ll ever use. In fact, it’s the best PreSonus Studio One MIDI controller available.
