Problems with CME UF5 Midi Controller Keyboard – Cockos Incorporated Forums
Each keyboard leyboard the same MIDI control features but has a different number of keys. Exhibiting a curious combination of modern and retro styling, the angular, contoured chassis is made entirely from metal.

Several other momentary buttons give you direct access to a range of functions. The semi-weighted, synth-action keys are heavier than you’ll find on any other controller in this price range and feel great xme use.
The sliders’ design is less orthodox – these are all set flush with the controller’s surface and therefore it doesn’t matter that they’re packed tightly together.
User reviews: CME UF5 – Audiofanzine

Our Verdict A heavy-duty controller with great keys. We like the idea of multi-use faders and rotaries, and the transport controls are very useful. Uuf5 FireWire expansion board: The rotary controls are tactile, centre-detented offerings that operate smoothly. Four velocity curves are provided and aftertouch is supported, too. Each rotary can operate either a designated function – such as pan – or a user-assigned parameter.

Pros Brick out-house build quality. The functions of the sliders and rotaries can be set using the buttons next to them.
However, it lacks user presets and there’s no software editor.
Each of these controls has at least one preset function and this uuf5 printed next to it on the chassis. The only problem is that they’re positioned too close together. The sliders can be assigned to control volume levels for channels andand controller values of your choice, effectively giving you 24 sliders worth of control. The UF5’s top surface is peppered with controllers. The lack of any easy editing software might put some people off, but the UF5 is perfect for those who want a keyboard for the stage as well as the studio.
