Alesis micron Receives Prestigous Best Buy Award

Award from Consumers Digest puts micron in an elite group

 The highly respected Consumers Digest publication praised the Alesis micron Keyboard in their December 2008 issue.

The micron is an eight-voice, three-octave virtual-analog synthesizer. The 37-key keyboard is rugged, compact and portable; an instrument upon which players can depend for professional sonic results in the studio and on stage. The micron is compatible with programs from its larger sibling, the Alesis Ion.

The micron has extensive performance controls including aftertouch, knobs, and virtual faders, as well as digital effects including ring modulation for extensive sonic manipulation. Keyboard players can perform and program with up to eight multi-timbral parts using micron’s sequencer, arpeggiator and rhythm sequencer. Alesis 24-bit digital-to-analog converters deliver clean, accurate audio output.


Consumers Digest Magazine publishes informative exposés and product reviews. On average, Consumer Digest’s Best Buy rating is awarded to fewer than three percent of the competing models in any given product category. The Alesis micron was chosen by the editors in the December 2008 issue for its exceptional value in today’s highly competitive marketplace.

Micron artists include Miley Cyrus, Nine Inch Nails, System of a Down, Ashley Simpson and The Veronicas. Want more information? Check out the micron product page for more details.
