Seamless Integration with FL Studio
The FLkey range is the first fully-integrated FL Studio MIDI keyboard controller, so set-up is seamless and allows for complete and unlimited control when you need it.
Programming drums is easier than ever with FLkey. Utilise the Step Sequencer for beats with a real human feel, mapping the 37 pads to the sequencer for extra-fast beat creation.
Channel Rack Playability
Play directly into the Channel Rack and get away from the grid within your DAW. Speed up your music-making and stay focused as you create.
Always hit the right notes and discover new melodies with Scale Mode. Break boundaries with your playing as you experiment with different scales, exploring fresh new ideas free from the fear of playing wrong notes.
Use the pads to trigger FPC and SliceX for expressive beat creation, and take advantage of Note Repeat for crisp rolls that highlight the individuality of your music.
Take full advantage of your Image Line plug-ins and record completely natural-sounding automation with the knobs found on the FLkey. Tweak parameters on the fly and make sure each aspect of your creation sounds fully authentic as you create it.
Browse your favourite presets directly from the FLkey - meaning you can stay away from your screen and concentrate where it really matters.
Completely tailor your workflow with custom controls on each pad and knob.
Mixer Control (FLkey Mini) and Channel Rack Control (FLkey 37)
Take the Mixer away from the screen and control it directly from the FLkey 37 and Mini. The 37 model also allows for full Channel Rack control.
Creative Chord Modes (FLkey 37 only)
The FLkey 37 gets extra-special here, with a selection of 3 Creative Chord Modes that allow you to perform and build songs in extra-fast time. Choose Fixed, User, or Scale mode and play with complete uninhibited freedom.
