Alesis unveils at NAMM 2015 a new range of 88-key digital pianos called Coda.
The new Alesis Coda series debuts with two 88-key digital pianos (Coda and Coda Pro), both portable and affordable. They are designed for both students and more experienced musicians for live use.
Both keyboards include a collection of 20 tones, with acoustic and electric pianos, organs and more, and you can split the keyboards and use two sounds simultaneously. 50 accompaniment styles are available for various styles (slow rock, waltz, jazz…) as well as 60 preset songs and a recorder allows for capturer your performance with built-in effects (EQ, reverb and chorus). Metronome and transpose are also onboard.
Beginners also benefit from a Lesson mode that splits the keyboards into two identical layouts.
The Alesis Coda digital pianos can also serve as MIDI controllers for virtual instruments thanks to the built-in USB MIDI port. Connections also include DIN MIDI out, 1/4” aux in and out, two 1/4” headphone outputs and sustain pedal input (the pedal is provided).
The difference between the two pianos is the keybeds, the Pro is equipped with a Hammer Action weighted model.
Both Coda digital pianos will be available in March with MSRP of $399.99 (Coda) and $499.99 (Coda Pro). They will ship with a collection of sounds from AIR Music Technology and SONiVOX and you can purchase an additional stand equipped with a connection that allows for adding soft, sostenuto and sustain pedals ($149.99).
