For The Players.
At the very core of the Hammer 88 are 88 fully-weighted, velocity sensitive, hammer-action keys that are guaranteed to capture every subtle nuance of your performance and provide the unmatched response of a traditional grand piano, this keyboard aims to give you a classic feel that fuses with the unique sonic capabilities of virtual instruments. The perfect combination for both producers and performers looking to experience their plug-in collection like never before.

Expressive.
The Hammer 88 allows you to put expression to the centre-stage of your performance thanks to the core range of controls that have been thoughtfully positioned to complement as well as enhance your performance. The unity-locking pitch wheel and separate modulation wheel allows you to add portamento and glissando effects, alternatively map the Mod-wheel to any assignable parameter in your virtual instrument and evolve or reshape your sound on-the-fly.

The dedicated master volume fader lets you instantly take control of the intensity of your performance or map the fader to any parameter in your DAW to expand your hands-on control. The keyboard also has assignable up and down buttons so you can navigate between different programs or effects, jump from octaves and much more. Three dedicated inputs for pedals can be found on the rear of the keyboard and allow you to add pedal-based articulation for sustain, expression and soft effects. With the Hammer 88’s performance features expressing yourself through your performances has never been easier.

Outboard Control.
Take control of your studio equipment with the Hammer 88 and don’t limit yourself with computer-based instruments. The conveniently-located 5-pin MIDI output lets you send MIDI information to other compatible devices such as hardware synthesisers, sound modules and drum machines. The Hammer 88 lets you get the most out of your external sound generators; this MIDI controller has been designed to put you in control of your music.

Seamless Integration.
The Hammer 88 is powered via USB and is class compliant and fully supports USB-MIDI connectivity that grants quick, hassle-free setup allowing you to focus on your performance. For iOS enthusiasts, the Hammer supports seamless connectivity to the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (sold separately) that lets you perform and compose with audio apps on your iPad and other iOS devices.

Premium Software Suite Included.
Entering the world of virtual instruments has never been easier thanks to the professional, production-ready software suite that comes provided with the Hammer 88 and includes a fully customisable grand piano, organ and e-piano sounds. And for performers and producers looking to improve their keyboard skills, the Hammer 888 comes with a free 3-month subscription to the critically acclaimed Skoove platform.
