Back in 2012, Alesis launched the Vortex, a keytar-styled MIDI controller. This year, the company showed Vortex Wireless, which throws cable-free operation and an accelerometer into the mix, too.
The wireless connectivity is via a dongle that plugs into your Mac or PC. The Vortex has 37 velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, 8 velocity-sensitive pads, a volume slider, a pitch wheel, a ribbon controller and a sustain pedal jack.
Power can be drawn via USB or mains power but, if you are going to go wireless, it would make sense to use the battery option.
