Product Description

This is the PreSonus ATOM production controller from the company that is one of the best names in beginner-friendly, professional quality audio production hardware. The ATOM features an impressive number of creative options for such a small piece of tech; it has 16 pressure and velocity-sensitive RGB pads plus 20 assignable buttons that let you play with virtual instruments, trigger sound effects and loops, and produce beats. This impressive piece of hardware gives you a brilliant scope for creativity, plus it's USB powered so you can easily set it up next to your laptop while you're on the move, and with the addition of Studio One Artist production software you'll be ready to create music wherever you are.

Fast, flexible, and feature-packed.

Produce beats, play virtual instruments, and trigger sound effects and loops with unsurpassed expressiveness and flexibility! Both a compact, dynamic performance controller and a tightly integrated production environment, PreSonus' ATOM pad controller and included Studio One Artist production software let you create and perform with ease. The most versatile pad controller in its class, ATOM is compatible with most music software and lets you perform and produce with virtual instruments and trigger samples and loops in real-time, using 16 full-size, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads and 8 assignable pad banks.

Produce quickly and easily in a tightly integrated environment.

ATOM connects to your computer via USB and is compatible with most music production and performance software but it is absolutely amazing when used with PreSonus Studio One. ATOM and Studio One integrate tightly so you can create quickly and easily. Enjoy blazingly fast, professional-style workflow with ATOM's navigation, editing, and loop-point-creation features and transport controls.

You're in control.

ATOM puts you in control of your music production software. Trigger loops and effects and play virtual instruments with 16 full-size, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads. Eight assignable pad banks let you, for example, assign your entire virtual drum rack to each pad within each bank. MIDI Keyboard mode, Note Repeat mode, and Full Velocity mode enable you to custom control your instruments. And with 4 programmable rotary encoders and 20 assignable buttons, you can navigate and set more parameters faster.

Bring ATOM out to play for a stunning live show.

Sure, ATOM is a great production pad controller but it's an instrument controller too. Use the velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads to play your virtual instruments live, with incredible expressiveness. Set up pad banks for a full virtual drum set and perform beats that will energize any crowd. Even play multiple ATOMs at once to put on an exciting live show.

Everything you need.

You'll love ATOM's expressive pads and flexible controls. Its tight integration with Studio One will open up your production environment and speed up your workflow, and you get a wealth of virtual instruments, loops, and drum kits with Studio One to fuel your creativity. But we wanted to give you more, so we worked with MVP Loops to deliver a carefully curated loop and one-shot library custom-designed for ATOM. Still not enough?

The seamless control over the studio one dawgs outstanding. Being new to studio one I have found this controller to be a source of inspiration. I was however disappointed that the pads could not be locked to scale. But with that said I found out the boys at presonus has me covered as there was an update recently that added this feature. Really happy with purchase


I chose this over Akai and others mainly because of reports of pad sensitivity. The integration with Studio One is an unwanted distraction - I use Mixcraft DAW. Fortunately, like most MIDI controllers, you can the buttons to anything you like. But really, I'm just interested in the Atom for its pads, not as mouse-replacement. To that end, the pads are sensitive and perform well. You can't change individual pad notes, which is quite an oversight. However, you can shift pad banks or octaves, or you can use techniques in your DAW / instrument to map notes to others (e.g. transposing, course tuning, Notemapper VST etc). So overall happy, but one star down for over-zealous Studio One integration. I purchased from Get in the Mix mainly because they were selling at the right price with a good delivery slot. They delivered ahead of schedule, so I can only commend them for that.


Brilliant bit of kit, especially for Studio One users. Most obviously useful for playing & input of percussion parts but also lets you use pads to input tempo and then tweak with the knobs. The transport control section is also really handy - I'm using my mouse much less now. Final point - it's really pretty!


Had one a while ago and sold it as i found it hard to use with S1. It's not hard to use but i couldn't get my head around it, Discovered some videos with Oscar and Gregor on Youtube and it all made sense. Not a fan of S1s american videos but Gregor is a great teacher. Loving the free kits and programming is so much fun. Glad i had another go.


this is a great product. It integrates well with Studio One making many processes more intuitive. I recommend this.
