CME VX50 overview

  • 1Description

The VX50 from CME Pro is a 49-key keyboard controller with a wide compliment of control functions. This keyboard is version 2 of their already powerful controller lines, and features motorized faders as well as 2 types of rotary controls (potentiometer and endless), trigger pads, a ribbon controller and an input for a breath controller. Additionally, modulation and pitch wheels are included, along with provisions for connecting volume and expression pedals. All of these controllers are programmable.

The keyboard features "PadStyle" performance for triggering MIDI songs live and includes MIDI songs and accompaniment, with loop variation and chord changes in various styles. Additional MIDI songs and styles can be downloaded from Internet and transferred into the keyboard via USB. The VX50 also features a "Game" mode that allows users to test their performance skills. U-CTRL provides the easiest way to communicate between controller and music software with no need to load templates or preset - just press the U-CTRL button and all the controllers are automatically set for the software.

Not only is it a MIDI controller, but the VX50 also includes both USB MIDI and USB audio functions, meaning that users do not need extra MIDI or audio interfaces when the controller is used with external music software. A single, multi-function expansion slot provides many options for expansion, including a sound module with sample functions, an analog synthesizer module, FireWire audio interface module, a digital mixing console module etc. Finally, the keyboard can be set to non Western scales for performing Ethnic music.
