The CME UF8 88-Key MIDI Controller brings together quality components with topnotch performance. You'll have professional control over all your soft synths and synth modules. The blue-tint aluminum body is durable and sleek, offering a stylish housing for the 88 hammer-action, velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch.
It also houses pitch and modulation wheels; 8 assignable knobs and 9 assignable sliders that also have preset functions; an LED display; and DAW transport controls. I/O includes a breath controller port, MIDI out, USB port, and an M-LAN-compatible FireWire audio expansion port. The USB connection can works as a USB/MIDI port and supplies power for the controller.
The UF8's best feature is hidden away under it's rugged aluminum case and beautiful 88-key board: its action. The smooth, consistent action feels absolutely perfect from C to C, modeled carefully after a real grand piano and eliminating the awkward on/off aftertouch found on most controllers.

Great action, on the level of the $2500 workstations, and just the right balance of features. A big and relatively heavy chunk of equipment. Some non-fatal USB driver issues exist that you can work around by using the MIDI output if you need to. It is important to push CME to release an updated ROM as they are "promising", so as to make the UF8 Plain Old Class Compliant, and maybe get away from the USB driver entirely, but in the meantime this musical MIDI controller rules the under $1000 field completely anyway.
