Intuitive possibilities

The Reloop Keyfadr is the compact and versatile DAW solution for producers and performers who use the popular Ableton Live software. Aside from its extremely compact dimensions, which make the controller fit comfortably into almost any laptop bag, the Keyfadr offers users a variety of intuitive possibilities; from beat programming while on the road, to setting-up a control station for studio projects as well as being a creative tool for a live gig.

Keyfadr

Creative tool

The Keyfadr is made up of 25 velocity-sensitive keys, 35 buttons, 8 faders, 16 rotary knobs and 8 endless encoders with push function, making this USB MIDI controller an indispensable creative tool.

Keyfadr

create complex compositions

A unique highlight of the Keyfadr is its ability to help create complex compositions on the fly. The internal arpeggiator can build vivid sequences with flexible quantization possibilities that give a subtle nuance to your sound, while the chord mode can punch out different combinations at the strike of just a single key. Scale mode helps you hit the right key every time by playing the correct tones matched to the chosen scale.

Keyfadr MIDI Editor

The specially-developed Reloop Keyfadr MIDI Editor allows you to customize the controller to your individual needs – whether in the studio or at live gigs. The MIDI Editor can map every single control element of the Keyfadr, which means each controller can now be uniquely suited to its owner.

Support for Ableton, Fruity Loops, Bitwig Studio & Reason

The Reloop Keyfadr now also supports Fruity Loops, Bitwig Studio and Reason.

Ableton Live Lite 9 included

Although there are many similar products on the market, there are seemingly none that offer such a wide range of controls in such a useful format. [...] Reloop that have really nailed the combination of features necessary for anyone who wants to start making music.
"[...] The Reloop Keypad and Reloop Keyfadr perfectly integrate with Ableton Live, and offer tools more suited to music creation than performance."
"They say input equals output. With the Reloop Keypad you will definitely get more output from the Ableton DAW than editing and mixing everything internally. Thumbs up!"
