Pearl malletSTATION EM1 Mallet Controller
The Pearl malletSTATION EM1 Mallet Controller provides realistic feel, ease of use, and unlimited possibilities to play on electronic keyboard instruments. The malletSTATION can easily be connected to any PC, Mac, iOS or Android device that supports USB with virtual sound software to simulate performing on a marimba, vibraphone, or any other percussion instrument.
Pearl designed the EM1 with Keith McMillen Instruments, a well-known designer of midi keyboards and controllers. Keith McMillen's Smart Fabric technology is a big step forward in mallet controller design. This technology and silicone bar material provides a very natural playing feeling and response, while also being extremely sensitive. The EM1 pads support dampening and after touch, which can be adjusted and customized via software.
With the Pearl malletSTATION you can easily change the instrument to any range you need. The unique pad layout allows you to shift ranges by moving the included accidental covers ("gap caps") so the player can visually see the range they are playing in. By pressing the "low note" selector button and shifting the covers, you can easily change from a C to C instrument to an F to F. The low note selector supports every natural note and uses an LED to indicate which note is selected. The "octave" selector button easily changes the octave range up or down as well. The EM1 control panel also includes 4 additional assignable buttons and 3 faders that can be assigned and customized within your software.
The malletSTATION receives power via the USB port. An optional Keith McMillen MIDI Expander (sold separately) can be used to connect the malletSTATION to any MIDI device or legacy systems. There are 3 MIDI assignable 1/4" pedal inputs as well.
The EM1 can be mounted via two electronic module mounts (sold separately) into any setup.
