Or transpose the keys +/

These buttons can easily be reassigned to switch MIDI channel, change MIDI programs or select tracks and browse patches when DAW integration is active. Better still, pressing a key combination changes the Octave and Transpose buttons to send out MMC transport functions so you can activate start, stop and record directly from your keyboard.Take control a notch further: The SE49 lets you do cool things such as changing filter cutoff, panning, effects bypass or any other parameter that has a MIDI CC assigned to it from a hardware control on your SE49.SE49 keyboards are USB class compliant and don't require a driver to operate.
