Solid controller if you utilise Studio One & Ableton
Tang The Pilgrim, 08.10.2020
I purchased the Atom SQ as a travel/performance controller and to utilize the synths in Studio One. I have so far found that Ableton is still my DAW of choice for live performance and the ATOM SQ works well enough for triggering scenes, tracks etc. I used to lug an MPC around to gigs but now track out my beats and stems at home and utilise midi controllers and DAWs as it allows me to travel light when performing. As a loyal Studio One user the Atom SQ makes perfect sense for me. It takes some getting used to like any midi controller and have found it less intuitive when integrating with ableton than the more purpose built ableton midi controllers like the APC mini which I was using before. Having said that, it is more than adequate once you have programmed the controls into your muscle memory and the extent to which the Atom SQ opens up Studio One, transforming it into a hands on production/performance tool is really impressive. I am yet to really sink my teeth into the Atom SQ and unlock it's true potential but so far I am really pleased and it is the only controller I will need going forward.

Atom SQ in der Praxis
Cubic Daze, 12.12.2020
Hier gibt es Licht und Schatten...die Tasten geben gerne Doppeltrigger ab (siehe PreSonus Forum). Damit ist das Einspielen von Sequenzen nicht wirklich gut zu erledigen. In meinem Falle geht der Weg dafür in Richtung Master Keyboard. In der täglichen Praxis mit dem Atom SQ nervt es manchmal das man in verschiedenen Situationen die Maus wieder greifen muss. Der eine oder andere Workflow ist noch nicht richtig durchdacht meiner Meinung nach.
Ansonsten konnte ich das Gerät gut ein meinen S1 Workflow einbinden. Die Potis sind ähnlich dem Atom, es gibt hier und da Parametersprünge. Im großen und ganzen bin ich zufrieden, hoffe aber das in Zukunft durch Updates der Workflow noch verbessert wird!

Un bon contrôleur mais pas pour Ableton
Sythrim, 28.10.2020
Je suis utilisateur d'ableton et je me suis séparé de mon push 2 pour passer sur des machines plus petites.
Le atom SQ me semblait remplir certains critères alors j'ai tenté.
Le produit en lui-même est de qualité, l'after-touch des pads est appréciable, les potards sont bien.
En revanche, l'intégration de manière générale avec Ableton est plus que décevante.
Fonction step-sequencer absente, pas de retour sur l'écran de ce que l'on contrôle, utilisation du pad tactile seulement pour les octaves, arppegiator qui s'arrête lorsque l'on change de page, etc... Je n'ai pas essayé avec Studio One, cela semble beaucoup plus optimal. En tout cas pour ma part en utilisation avec Ableton, c'est retour à l'envoyeur, assez déçu...
Un potentiel d'intégration pour Ableton est là, mais il n'est pas du tout exploité et dire que ce contrôleur est parfaitement intégrable à ableton est un petit mensonge :)

Attention petit coup de main à prendre avant de l'utiliser
Robzy974 , 03.12.2020
Clairement intuitif, un régal pour composer avec studio one 5 en DAW, par contre quand on est pas habituer à avoir ce genre de machine un réel coup de main à prendre est de mise, sinon après ça se passe comme sur des roulettes et clairement ça fonctionne très très fort !! Je peux que recommander pour les utilisateurs de Studio One 5 avec un petit Presonus Atom sur le côté !

Merci Thomann !!!
