The UF 50 from CME-Pro is a wireless MIDI keyboard controller, with 49 velocity sensitive keys and global aftertouch, housed in a durable aluminum case. A full compliment of controllers is provided, all of which are user assignable. These include faders, rotary controls, transport controls and the usual modulation and pitch wheels. Unique at this price point is a breath controller input.
The keyboard also sports a full duplex wireless MIDI interface that communicates with the included WIDI-XU wireless MIDI interface. The WIDI-XU connects to a computer via USB and communicates with the keyboard with a "sight of line" range of over two-hundred feet.
The keyboard can also function as a regular USB MIDI interface, in which case, it draws power from the USB bus. This same connection will allow for future updates and enhancements to be downloaded directly to the keyboard. The unit supports most professional audio/MIDI applications.
