Behringer UMA25S U-Control 25-Key USB Midi Controller Keyboard

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
All keyboard controllers are not created equal. This is the one with more features, accessories and useful software than its competition. The UMA25S offers total flexibility, tremendous ease of use and allows you to realize your ideas intuitively.

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 out all over your studio or workstation space. The MIDI controller sends a control message to the device or program you?re using that turns notes on and off, adjusts the volume or changes any one of many addressable parameters.

21 assignable controllers and 16 user presets
When it comes to remote control, the UMA25S offers more real-time options than the competition. You get 8 knobs, 8 buttons, 2 wheels (Pitch Bend & Modulation), 2 pedal ports (Expression & Sustain) and 1 fader, for a total of 21 assignable controllers - total control of your operating environment. Once you?ve assigned the parameters for a particular scenario, simply store it in one of the 16 available preset locations.

Here Are Just a Few Reasons You Need a UMA25S:

  • 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 eff ects devices and software plug-ins, such as eff ects processors, compressors and digital equalizers
  • Remotely controlling software mixers (functions for volume, pan, mute, etc.)
  • Remotely controlling transport functions (Play, Fast Forward, Stop, etc., which is also known as MMC, or MIDI Machine Control) on sequencers, hard-disk recorders, drum machines, etc.
  • Live control of volume and sound parameters of sound modules on stage

Functionality, Functionality, Functionality?
There are some things that just bear repeating. Besides providing 25 velocity-sensitive keys for the slickest set of glissandos and the snappiest arpeggios, the UMA25S also functions as a full-fledged USB audio interface for recording and podcasting. This powerful interface features a built-in mic preamp with dedicated Gain control, a Phones Output with its own dedicated Volume control and stereo RCA I/O jacks for connecting external devices. The interface is so versatile, it even allows simultaneous recording of the Mic and Line inputs.

Speaking of Recording?
Because you'll want to take full advantage of the UMA25S' podcasting and recording potential, included is a massive software package including Audacity, Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear. You're ready to go live on your PC or Mac computer right out of the box! You also get more than 100 virtual instruments and over 50 effects plug-ins, making the UMA25S a complete mobile studio from input to output.

Three Different Power Supply Options
Because it needs to be ready for action in a variety of venues, the UMA25S can draw its operating power from any free USB port on your PC or Mac computer, 3 AA batteries or the optional external power supply. No matter what your performance calls for, the UMA25S is the ideal solution.

1 out of 5 stars   Fatal Flaw Mars Behringer Controller
By The Carlyle (Atlanta, GA) July 03, 2013
Review submitted for Behringer UMA25S U-Control 25-Key USB Midi Controller Keyboard (BHRUMA25S)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Key Layout Light
Cons: Unplayable Squishy Action
Other Comments: So many great features... but the touch response of the keyboard is SO squishy, I found it unplayable and sent it back. Would somebody else find this action adequate? I can't imagine yes.

4 out of 5 stars   Wonderful entry level or add-on keyboard
By Shreddy Money (Spokane, WA) March 01, 2013
Review submitted for Behringer UMA25S U-Control 25-Key USB Midi Controller Keyboard (BHRUMA25S)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Responsive / Good Action, Realistic Sound, Easy to Use, Touch Sensitive Keys, Portable
Cons: Shallow Keys
Other Comments: This is a great little portable keyboard. It's well built and works nearly instantly after you plug it in. It has great response time and I love the touch velocity on the keys. My only slight complaint is that the buttons don't go down quite as much as I'd like. It's still a fantastic keyboard, you just don't quite get the full keyboard experience. I use it with Ableton Live and it works perfectly.
