Whether its at home, in the studio, or on a bus or plane, the battery powered QY20 will become your "go-to" songwriting and composing partner.

Versatile Song and Pattern "Jobs"

Both the song and pattern modes include a number of "jobs" that can make the process of creating new songs and patterns fast and easy. The jobs have graphic displays that make it easy to understand what they do, and to set the required parameters.

In-depth Editing Capability

The "change" edit mode lets you individually modify the timing, pitch, gate time (length) and velocity (loudness) of each note simply by moving the cursor and setting the parameter as required. An edit "insert" mode allows insertion of note, program change, sustain on/off, pitch bend, modulation, pan, volume, expression, and other events at any point in the pattern. A Super Practice Tool Create chord, bass, and drum accompaniments that you can practice with on your guitar, keyboard, or any other instrument.
