Pro-level control and grand piano feel at an amazing price!

The CME UF8 88-Key MIDI Controller brings together quality components with topnotch performance. You'll have professional control over all your soft synths and synth modules. The blue-tint aluminum body is durable and sleek, offering a stylish housing for the 88 hammer-action, velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch.

It also houses pitch and modulation wheels; 8 assignable knobs and 9 assignable sliders that also have preset functions; an LED display; and DAW transport controls. I/O includes a breath controller port, MIDI out, USB port, and an M-LAN-compatible FireWire audio expansion port. The USB connection can works as a USB/MIDI port and supplies power for the controller.

The UF8's best feature is hidden away under it's rugged aluminum case and beautiful 88-key board: its action. The smooth, consistent action feels absolutely perfect from C to C, modeled carefully after a real grand piano and eliminating the awkward on/off aftertouch found on most controllers.

UF8-keys good to play after initial, stuck but always getting stuck again after 30minutes rest.

Comments about CME UF8 88-Key MIDI Controller:

Masterkeyboard CME-UF8(October2005, tested 2 red versions): Keys are good to play after initial stuck - but always getting stuck again after 30 minutes rest. Maybe the lubricate or any moving material got frozen on the transport from china to Europe? I wonder why CME is ignoring this issue. Buyers will find out sooner or later, thousands of UF8s might be returned and a damaging reputation is quite unnecessary for an otherwise excellent Masterkeyboard !...CME, are You listening? - say something, please offer a SOLUTION about the KEY STUCK PROBLEM: (testable fact is: "UF8 keys are good to play after initial stuck but always getting stuck again after 30minutes rest.")

best feel available by far

By h. hey

Comments about CME UF8 88-Key MIDI Controller:

This is by far the best action on any keyboard available. It's possible that it is the best action that has ever existed in a controller or synth. It has real grading to the velocity and a forgiving keybed. You can play it hard and not feel like you are battering your arms. Do a little comparison in your local store. That will be enough to sell you on it.
