Polytouch™ keybed

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER features the ASM Polytouch® 37-note mid-sized semi-weighted keybed, allowing both ON/OFF velocity and aftertouch as well as full polyphonic aftertouch.
In recent years companies have been trying to find ways to give the keyboard musician more ways to better express themselves. The problem is that their solution is almost never a keyboard, so you have to learn a new technique to play them.
The Polytouch™ keybed features high quality, mid-sized keys, so you can start playing it instantly.

Portability

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER can be powered by it's included power supply or by 8 x AA batteries, not included.
The expected life for battery operation is around 3-4 hours depending on type, make, and model.
