Product Highlights
  • 61-Keys
  • 100 Software Instruments
  • 50 VST Effects
  • energyXT2.5 Music Software
  • NI KORE Player Sound Module
  • Mac OS X
  • Windows XP/Vista

The UMX610 from Behringer is a 61-note MIDI Controller that functions as an extremely flexible master keyboard with a control section that is suitable for a wide range of applications. MIDI addressable effects processors (such as delays, reverbs, etc.) and audio recording and editing software can all be controlled using the 22 assignable controllers.

The keyboard features 8 knobs, 10 assignable switches, a pitch bend and a modulation wheel, a pedal port and 1 fader, which collectively provide total control of any operating environment. Once you've assigned the parameters for a particular scenario, simply store it in your user preset. Additionally, the key-bed is custom-designed to deliver excellent responsiveness and playability.

The UMX610 also includes the company's UCA222 USB audio interface for accessing a PC or Mac computer's audio capability. You can use the interface to connect sound modules or other audio sources 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 S/PDIF optical output for direct digital conversion.

Included are more than 100 Instruments and 50 effects plug-ins that feature a virtual e-piano and breathtaking synthesizer sounds. Tweak your sounds with tube amps and multi-FX, plus high-end studio reverbs, equalizers, compressors, choruses and much more. Also included is the Native Instruments' KORE PLAYER with a production ready 300MB sound library.

The controller ships with the energyXT2.5 Compact BEHRINGER Edition DAW software, making it easy to manipulate audio and MIDI files, and turning song ideas into CD or web-ready recordings. A cross-platform solution, the software includes its own multi-FX processor, built-in synthesizers and a drum machine, both of which can be accessed directly.

Because it needs to be ready for action in a variety of venues, the UMX610 can draw operating power from any free USB port on a PC or Mac computer, via 3 AA batteries, or an optional external power supply.

    i was looking for a controller to with at least 61 keys for both fl studio and some native instruments software. i went on a search as im quite picky. it was between this and the m-audio 61es controller. after some reviews on different sites and some testimonial from users i know i went with this keyboard. i have no regrets at all.[...] some things that made me buy this were one the programmable knobs and 10 programmable switches. it shipped with 100 virtual instruments and 50 VST effects, and the color also made a difference as well. above all the controller is awesome. the only complaint i have is the same one i was pre warned about and that is that the keys are a little stiff but it really isnt that bad in comparison to other controllers.

      Comments about Behringer UMX610 - USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller:

      I'm a guitarist and composer who's been using synthesizers for a while and I've been wanting to get better as a pianist. I've had this for about a month now and this 61 keyboard/controller is exactly what I've needed. For the price, the weight of the keys are great and I love the look and structure.

        I use this keyboard for Rock Band 3, using a MIDI converter, on my Mac Book Pro and in Pro Tools to create original songs.

        The keyboard is very light weight and makes for easy portability. The keys are not weighted, but for the price, this is an excellent beginners keyboard.

        I'm very happy with my purchase.

            I keep my mac nearby at all times, so I just needed a midi slave board with limited buttons.
            Does everything it says spot on.
            Decent key feel
            Compact form factor (cheap rifle case works great for transport/protection)
            Using with MBpro and MainStage2, plug and play perfect
            Pleasantly surprised by the included audio interface, decided to use it live with great success, $$ saving alternative for sure.
            No after touch, but I rarely consider it

            Comments about Behringer UMX610 - USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller:

            I use this to control various soft synths. I've had it for a few months, and as of today one of the screws on the bottom just sort fell out -- apparently stripped at the factory. (I didn't even touch it, and I haven't moved since I took it out of the box. Just heard a *tink* and saw a screw rolling across the floor.)

            The knobs all feel a little different, some are a bit tighter than others, and some have a slight "grind" to them. The modulation wheel if the same way.

            The pitch bend wheel isn't stable enough -- when you move it, if you're bot very careful about moving it exactly in a vertical direction it will "scrape" along the sides of the outer shell.

            Overall if feels cheaper than what they charge for it. I'd avoid this product if you can hold out a little longer and buy something else.

            Believe it or not, I do have something nice to say about it, though. The key bed is wonderful. They should put as much love into the rest of the device as they do into the key bed.

              I was very nervous about getting into the realm of "MIDI" but this keyboard is very easy to setup and is working great with my recording softwear.
              It would be nice if it had speakers on the keyboard itself but for the price, I can't complain at all!
              I've always been impressed by Behringer and they're line of products and for the price, they're gear has always been reliable and built like a tank!!!!
