M-Audio Hammer 88 Pro

DAW Auto Mapping & Performance Control

Thanks to the front-center OLED screen, it's easier than ever to find and check out sounds, assign controls, and mix and edit your sessions. Hammer 88 Pro can control any DAW and automatically assign frequently used functions like transport, faders, pan knobs and more! Whether you're using Pro Tools, MPC Beats, Cubase, Logic, Studio One or any other major DAW, just select the function and Auto-Mapping will take care of the rest! It also maps all the virtual instruments included in the Hammer 88 Pro software bundle (Hybrid, Velvet, Mini Grand). These premium AIR Music Tech plugins can be fully controlled by the Hammer 88 Pro and used in real time as you produce and mix your music.


Hammer 88 Pro features M-Audio's brand new Smart Chord and Smart Scale technology. These features allow you to let your imagination run wild and seamlessly blend your hardware with your ideas across all 88 keys. Creating music on your computer has never been so intuitive and inspiring, thanks to these workflow-oriented features.
When Smart Chord is enabled, pressing a single key or pad plays a whole chord, not just a note. The key or pad you press determines the root note of the chord. The rest of the chord's properties (major, minor, etc.) are determined by the settings you choose. Smart Chord also has a Custom Mode that lets you determine the chord structure assigned to each key by playing it manually. For example, if you select Custom Mode and play a 1-b3-5-b7 chord, each key will be assigned that chord structure. The note of the key you press will serve as the root of the chord, and all parameters can be edited directly on the Hammer 88 Pro!
Smart Scale technology allows you to set the keyboard to play only the notes of the selected scale. This allows you to play within a selected scale without the risk of playing "wrong" notes. You can choose from 16 different scale variations when assigning a scale to the keyboard. Smart Scale is easy to enable and disable, and allows you to set the scale parameters you need to focus on creating.
