What is a MIDI Controller?
A MIDI controller let you take command of any hardware device or software that understands MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). So, MIDI addressable effects processors (such as delays, reverbs, etc.) and audio recording and editing software can be controlled with a single piece of hardware like this. This can be very handy indeed when you have lots of devices spread.
22 Assignable Controllers
The UMX490 has a range of controls: 8 knobs, 10 assignable switches, 2 wheels (Pitch Bend & Modulation), 1 pedal port and 1 fader, giving you total control of your operating environment. You can store your assigned parameters in your user preset.
This keyboard's custom-designed key-bed gives responsiveness and playability that has been praised by some of the industry?s top product reviewers and players alike.
Included UCA222 USB Audio Interface
Furthermore, Behringer have included their UCA222 USB Audio Interface to access your PC or Mac computer?s audio capability. Use this to connect sound modules 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 has an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct digital conversion and is completely powered via USB, so no external power supply is needed. With its dual analog mono inputs, any line-level device, such as a mixer or tape deck, can be connected hassle-free to your computer.
