CME (Central Music Company), following on the success of their UF Series
Keyboard Controllers released in 2005, have unveiled the latest additions to the UF series: the new UF 50, 60, 70, and 80. They say that, with
the same durable aluminum chassis, these digital instruments provide all-new circuit design and the practicality and
versatility of a modern master keyboard.
The new UF Series features a redesigned front panel providing more convenient control with many new shortcut functions and
the addition of CMEâ€™s unique U-CTRL functions.
New MIDI features include a built-in USB plug and play interface, a MIDI
in added to the expansion slot, and even a built-in full duplex wireless MIDI interface with error detection and 262 ft range. This
wireless interface can be used with CMEâ€™s WIDI wireless MIDI line of products for wireless connection of MIDI devices,
remote control, and computer interfacing.
New user features have been added to make the new UF Series more playable and versatile. Among these new features are user
template save functions, scales and tuning adjustments, increased velocity curves, adjustable aftertouch curves, and increased
continuous controller data density.
The new UF Series come in 4 models ranging from 49 semi-weighted keys to 88 hammer action keys and include many of the
control features of their predecessor, such as 8 assignable control knobs, 9 assignable control faders, 6 sequencer remote
buttons, and 20 built-in memory locations.
