61-key USB/MIDI controller with audio interface and extensive software package.
The Behringer U-Control UMX610 MIDI Controller is a flexible master keyboard with a control section for a wide range of applications. It's a controller of hardware synthesizers or general MIDI sound modules as well as effects devices. It can also operate sequencing software or computer plug-ins. UMX Series controllers provide total flexibility and tremendous ease of use, allowing you to realize your ideas intuitively.
What is a MIDI Controller?
A MIDI controller gives you the power to take command of any hardware device or software that understands MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). This means that MIDI addressable effects processors (such as delays, reverbs, etc.) and audio recording and editing software can be controlled with a single piece of hardware, a MIDI controller. This can be very handy when you have lots of devices.
22 assignable controllers
When it comes to remote control, you get 8 knobs, 10 assignable switches, 2 wheels (Pitch Bend & Modulation), 1 pedal port and 1 fader, for a total of 22 assignable controllers — which means total control of your operating environment. Once you've assigned the parameters for a particular scenario, simply store it in your user preset.
All UMX610 features Behringer's custom-designed key-bed, which has been praised by some of the industry's top product reviewers and players alike for its responsiveness and playability.
More Than Just MIDI
As an added bonus, Behringer includes a UCA222 USB Audio Interface to access your PC or Mac computer's audio capability. You can use the UCA222 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 S/PDIF optical output for direct digital conversion and is completely powered via USB—no external power supply 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.
Unleash Your Creativity With More Than 100 Instruments and Effects Plug-Ins
Included are over 100 virtual instruments plus more than 50 effects plug-ins to get you rockin' right out of the box. Jam with a virtual e-piano or take off with breathtaking synthesizer sounds. Tweak your sounds with creative tube amps and multi-FX plus high-end studio reverbs, equalizers, compressors, choruses and many more.
Even More Ready-to-Play Sounds
Included with each UMX controller is the Native Instruments' KORE PLAYER with a production-ready 300MB sound library. KORE PLAYER includes six Native Instruments sound engines and provides ready-to-play sounds that can be browsed and tweaked via its ultra-intuitive interface. Plus there's a coupon, which can be used to download even more sounds.
energyXT2.5 Compact BEHRINGER Edition
Included is XT Software's energyXT2.5 Compact BEHRINGER Edition so you can take your recording projects to the next level. This amazing DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) makes it easy to manipulate your audio and MIDI files, turning song ideas into stunning CD or web-ready recordings.

Comments about Behringer U-Control UMX610:
Compact controller, knobs, faders and buttons easily assignable, and best of all, it's a beautiful bright RED. I expected it to be a bit lighter, but it's only a little over 10 lbs. It seems very sturdy. I still have to work to get the velocity response. With the factory settings I was afraid I was going to break the keys to get to 127. Keys are kind of springy. And if you have other midi stuff, it does have a midi out in addition to the USB. 1/4" input for the sustain pedal. Don't expect semi-weighted keys at this price. Optional power supply if you run out of USB ports. Plug and play. Also offers recording software, but I use Reaper, so I haven't really checked it out.
Comments about Behringer U-Control UMX610:
Very pleased with MF. Bought many items, always fast free delivery. Returned one item, with no hassle. Haven't used the 610 yet, my laptop not capable as of yet. Bought some adaptors to use live, and will try soon. I will post how it works. Ever since I bought the Epiphone LES PAUL tribute from MF. Been hooked. You rock MF
