Expressive Performance Features

The GW-7 is made to be played. And not just on its keyboard, this workstation offers an invisible, front-panel D Beam (wave your hands over the beam to color your sound), plus a pitch-bend/modulation lever, and a pair of control knobs. Performers will appreciate the GW-7’s large backlit LCD, especially on dark stages and dimly lit studio environments.
