What is a MIDI Controller

Simply put, a MIDI controller gives you the power to take command of any hardware device or software that understands MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). This means that MIDI addressable effects processors (such as delays, reverbs, etc.) and audio recording and editing software can be controlled with a single piece of hardware, a MIDI controller. This can be very handy indeed when you have lots of devices spread The UMX MIDI Controller is an extremely flexible master keyboard with a control section for a wide range of applications. Do you need independent control of hardware synthesizers or general MIDI sound modules? How about control over effects devices? Maybe you just want to operate sequencing software or computer plug-ins from a convenient remote location? UMX Series controllers provide total flexibility and tremendous ease of use, allowing you to realize your ideas intuitively.

22 assignable controllers

When it comes to remote control, you get 8 knobs, 10 assignable switches, 2 wheels (Pitch Bend & Modulation), 1 pedal port and 1 fader, for a total of 22 assignable controllers -- which means total control of your operating environment. Once you've assigned the parameters for a particular scenario, simply store it in your user preset.

Playability

All UMX Series controllers feature the custom-designed key-bed, which has been praised by some of the industry's top product reviewers and players alike for its responsiveness and playability

More Than Just MIDI

As an added bonus, Behringer has included its UCA222 USB Audio Interface to access your PC or Mac computer's audio capability. You can use the UCA222 to connect sound modules directly to any free computer USB port and listen to either the input or output signal via headphones or through active studio monitors. The UCA222 also features an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct digital conversion and is completely powered via USB--no external power supply needed. With its dual analog mono inputs, any line-level device, such as a mixer or tape deck, can be connected hassle-free to your computer.

Ease of Use

Here are a just few reasons you need a UMX controller

- For playing external sound modules, rack synthesizers and virtual instruments
- For editing sound parameters of synthesizers, sound samplers and GM/GS/XG sound generators
- Controlling parameters on outboard equipment and software plug-ins, such as effects processors, compressors and digital equalizers
- Remotely controlling software mixers (functions for volume, pan, mute, etc.)
- Live control of volume and sound parameters of sound modules on stage

Behringer UMX250 Keyboard Customer Review
Sound: This product does not output sound unless you listen quietly for the keyboard clicks. Feature: It does NOT come with a power supply!? C'mon. Ease of Use: I didn't read the manual for programming this little thing. I'll get around to it someday. Quality: Surprisingly sturdy. Knobs feel excellent. Keys are a bit stiff, but expecting synth action. Value: A very well built keyboard. So you make fun of Behringer, but this thing makes no sound. We're only talking about German engineering. Were it a car it would be a 2-door 1989 Toyota Corolla--expect to get 300,000 miles and turn on a dime. The Wow Factor: OK, I'll give. It's sexy.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
