Hereâ€™s all the info straight from their press releaseâ€¦
The worldâ€™s first keyboard controller with 9 motorized 60mm faders, the VX series Keyboard Controllers are designed to provide the ultimate in control for the demanding lives of todayâ€™s musicians. A solid, all-aluminum chassis make these units extremely durable and sizes from 49 velocity-sensitive semi- weighted keys to 88 professional graded hammer action weighted keys make them ideal for studio, stage, or mobile use.
The VX Series feature 64 different types of programmable controllers including motorized faders, knobs, trigger pads, a ribbon controller, buttons, pitch bend and modulation wheel, transport controls, pedals, and a breath controller. These flexible keyboards have an amazing array of uses such as controlling a DAW and virtual instruments in the studio, triggering patterns and controlling sound rigs on stage, and recording audio into a laptop while on the go.
The VX Series include a built-in USB audio and MIDI interface, eliminating the need for an extra audio interface when used for computer recording. The VX internal memory can hold program data as well as PadStyleÂ® MIDI songs and patterns, complete with loop variation and chord change, which can be triggered from the unitâ€™s onboard pads. The VX's built-in expansion slot allows for expanding your VX with current and planed modules such as a FireWire audio interface, a sound module with sampling function, an analog synthesizer module, and a digital mixing console module.
Weâ€™ll leave the last word to Athan Billias, Director of Marketing for Technology Products at Yamaha, â€œOnce again CME has set a new standard in controller keyboards by adding never before seen features at price points within reach of everyone. The addition of USB audio I/O and motorized faders make these not just MIDI controllers, but the center of a computer based home studio.â€�
