Programmable keyboard music system

Ease of use and flexibility on the stage | Programmable keyboard perfects music system

The Challenge

Musicians are required to operate the music system fast and precise in live stage operations. That’s why the access to titles, playbacks and other data must be reliable and accurate at all times. For this reason, a musician from southern Germany was looking for a fast and dependable control solution for his system. At the same time it was important that the data input was extremely user-friendly. The musician was previously using a remote control with ten number, play and stop buttons. He was no longer satisfied with this method as it restricted the musician too much and commands had to be integrated and called up directly in songs.

The Solution

A colleague made the musician aware of the freely programmable input solutions from PrehKeyTec. With the slim MCI 30 keyboard the musician now has the option of directly accessing the title, text display, DMX and midi control. The MCI 30 keypad is freely programmable and the user can choose between different colors for the keys. New individual functions and commands can be assigned to the keys at any time. The flexible setup and programming makes everyday life much easier for the musician.



“The effort of changing my control has definitely paid off. The PrehKeyTec keyboard has perfected my new system and it is therefore indispensable for me.“
