C-Thru Axis 49 x2 - Fur Elise Main Theme

C-Thru Axis 49 x2 - Fur Elise Main Theme

Watch the video from YouTube

This is me playing the main theme of Fur Elise by Beethoven using my dual Axis 49 MIDI controller setup. The hexagonal note layout is known as the harmonic table, in my opinion it makes the relationship between notes a lot clearer than a traditional piano. I'm a big fan of the Axis MIDI controllers, I got my first Axis 49 about 6 months ago, and added the second one 3 months ago. As you will notice, I play the bass parts with my right hand and the treble parts with my left, but you can set these up to whatever makes you comfortable. If you are interested in learning more about the Axis 49, check out c-thru-music.com. The piano samples are from Steinberg Halion One, recorded using Cubase 5.
