The Mandala mk2.9 is a plug-and-play high-definition electronic drum and synthesizer for your PC or Mac. The Mandala detects both WHERE and HOW HARD you hit it and triggers and controls a proprietary set of instrument and drum samples included with its Virtual Brain software. There are also plenty of software audio effects for endless sonic possibilities. You can even load in your own sounds and play any 3rd-party musical software you might already have! It is important to note that the Mandala is a class-compliant USB MIDI controller that requires no special drivers for Windows or OSX. This means you can simply plug it in and control any available MIDI software just as you would with a MIDI keyboard.
