ShyneBeats's review

Behringer U-Control UMX61
It has the essential features like volume control, pan knob, etc. It's pretty cool for a cheap MIDI Controller.


Yes to all questions! - Behringer did a good job on this points! thumbs up!


It's pretty simple &amp; very easy to use. No complicated installation required. The price is okay, it could be cheaper, for the fact that its so simple, but it's "okay". <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" />
The quality is pretty much like any other MIDI Controller.
It's actually my first MIDI Controller.
I don't think i would make the same choice. - I would rather get a m-audio one.

I did not buy ...


... but I just had the opportunity to test in-store feel, and it's a great surprise! Without being a touch heavy, largely surpassed all other keyboards bolsters (6 or 7) exposs ct be the possible exception of M-Audio Oxygen with which it competes with no problem my.

Behringer U-Control UMX61

- 61 keys
- 8 knobs that can have either assign functions "factories" of the piano is CONTRL functions of our software prfrs ...
- 8 rglages other buttons (see dtails manufacturers)
- Pitch bend, volume and modulation. Classic ultimately there just right.


- A midi in (to control an expander "rel")
- No midi out
- Between 1 foot switch
- 1 USB port
- 9v power supply (not fournises)

Well I will explain why I wanted this and according to what expectations, I am a guitarist, I work a lot of information I wanted to start at the piano while having a tool versatile enough, I was looking for a 61-key keyboard, cheap same with when the essential functions of a keyboard of this type.
Rsultat: I'm Fully satisfied on all these points, everything works, and I think it is a good test of any prciser on the product, what I trs tr s is strongly apprci the conditions for sending the keyboard, thomann purchased 159 I think, confirms sales and expdi package the next day (with a sms to warn) package arrives at the final 3 days later and for me, it's also important trs, I will not even 10 when for the lack of midi out / thru, but put this dtail hand, its quality is excellent.

Note that it also comes with a lot of small software and virtual instruments that allow us to play right away (the quality is not forcment the appointment but at least allows to test).


- The touch keyboard is it enjoyable? Should you use?

This is the point that surprised me most, I am a regular music stores so I often fiddle with keyboards, touch is excellent for the price, semi-weighted keys is really very s good (not the best but do not go too far for most prparer must add 100 euros ...) so I expected that this keyboard as a tool to Get You Started fun and I tromp I do not intend to change it because so tt we can go far beyond mere amusement.

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?

The config is very simple, provided one does not shuffled brushes, you plug the keyboard, it is automatically recognized as a USB audio controller (it can be recognized as UMX61 by installing the driver but nothing obliges you install it - it), even if it is connected via USB, you have to set the MIDI In and MIDI Out of your software (eg I use string: select your asio driver, midi in: controller USB audio, MIDI Through nothing (well a YMMV) you will certainly other MIDI software you select and the output table with his windows (well something like that since I no longer used since long) for sound cards or motherboards to intgres then your sound card (Inca in my case)).
Anyway not need to be an expert by following these instructions you plug it plays.

- The select MIDI channels, patches is easy?

Personally I do not use these functions, the manual explains that part of the well but if your like me and you just want a nice piano to play with your computer you will may be no need for these functions . (I will correct later if I use it).

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

It is the small keyboard that will lose a point, the manual explains things well trs (selection of channels / patch) for absolute beginners cons for everything I have explained above is not in the manual, I myself who do not know too much of the afternoon I go trying all possible combinations and sometimes it nerva ...


I use it for one month, I have an electric piano and the diffrence is really touching standard, certainly not a real piano, it's not the perfect midi keyboard (damage to the lack of out / thru), but I'm really happy with my purchase, bought with a sound card Inca (asio 2 drivers for a ca 9 euros worth, especially for the latency) is between al dsormais my guts and my appearance is not at all fragile (plutt heavy for that matter) it is stable on his foot trs, excellent vehicle to move the piano (imagine that you have 1 minute or during a Tlcharger hop a lil piano and air force ...), I test a lot of MODELS in store and quickly without being top of the table is far from being final, finally if your short like me you are looking for an instrument for "home studio / piano" is the companion IDAL and I think it's time of stopping the prjugs style = behringer Cheap = not well, I always t Fully satisfied with their products.

Behringer U-Control UMX61
I bought this keyboard because it silent much cheaper than a parlor organ keyboard dynamics. Unfortunately, the machine comes without instructions (other than a minimal description of the buttons is to say for a novice, nothing) without installation CD and with a BMD Live4. there was also a CD of 50 non softs documents! on which I found a driver that I install any hazard. short, it took me three days to get a sound!
I would have wanted to go home Mistergooddeal but APRS several emails asking how to return from a receipt, I board had no rponse.


You understand that I can not judge the functioning of UMX61, but I can say that the toy manufacturing level and the keyboard is not heavy but hard.


an era I play a lot of research on synths (Korg 3300, arp 2600) fabulous instruments, but with missing pRSET, memory and touch keyboard.
