PreSonus Intros Atom Pad Controller

PreSonus has introduced the Atom MIDI pad controller, which features 16 full-size, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads and 8 assignable pad banks.

The Atom connects to your computer via USB and is compatible with most music production and performance software – but PreSonus says that the Atom ‘is absolutely amazing when used with PreSonus Studio One’.
