GREAT SOUNDS

Lucina is packed with dozens of high-quality sounds that span a wide stylistic range - from scorching synth leads to silk-smooth pads. Find the perfect sound quickly with the Category buttons, and press the Preview button to hear the currently selected sound with a pre-programmed riff. Assign your top 12 sounds to the Favorites bank for instant, one-button recall. Volume and reverb level settings can be stored with each Favorite.

BATTERY POWER

Plug into traditional power with an AC adaptor (included) or roam free with batteries. Jam for hours* with eight standard AA batteries installed (Ni-MH AA rechargeable batteries). A battery-strength indicator lets you know when battery power is getting low so you never miss a note onstage.

AUDIO PLAYER

The built-in Audio Player feature lets you sound like an entire band. Simply load up a USB stick with your favorite songs in MP3, WAV, or AIFF format, plug it into Lucina’s USB port, select the song you want, press Play, and jam along!

HANDS-ON CONTROL

Put a personal stamp on your performances with the expressive controllers built into Lucina. Wave your hands over the invisible D Beam for dramatic effects, and dig your fingers into the Modulation Bar and Touch control to bend, twist, and sculpt each sound you play.

*Approximately four hours of continuous use per 8-battery load.
