Beware of this item

Comments about CME UF-70 76-Key Master Keyboard MIDI Controller:

This CME UF-70 76-Key Master Keyboard MIDI Controller was purchased for a pit band because of its extended keyboard range. It seemed to have a lot of feature flexibility for an instrument of this nature, plus it is relatively lightweight for a keyboard this size.Once wired in, however, two serious problems became evident:1) Using the volume slider produced a spike in level on the increase path (an audible 'blip' as it were, at about halfway up the slider range). Thinking this might be a flaw in the slider hardware, I attempted to program MIDI volume to one of the other 8 programmable sliders. Same problem occurred there. So the glitch was in the 'brain' itself, not in the mechanics. I then noticed the LED window that read out MIDI volume data as the slider was pushed forward. Lo and behold, after value = 54 (at the point of the spike), suddenly there was a read-out jump to value = 85. Sliding up further and the next value was 56 and continued up sequentially to 127 (the max). So, the 'brain' of the unit was substituting MIDI value = 85 for MIDI value = 55. There was no workaround for this other than to avoid the mid-point of the slider (had to carefully set levels elsewhere to accommodate this).2) Uneven 'firing' of keystrokes: most of the keys on the instrument fired off their note-on data on the downstroke, but on two of the keys, A3 & C3 (perhaps more, I did not test them all), my key-press reached "bottom" and an extra push was required to fire off the MIDI note-on message. So if I were playing very softly, I had the unfortunate occurrence of notes not sounding when required.This keyboard is completely of Chinese manufacture. There is no technical support from the company, in fact one cannot even download the manuals. My package did not even contain a warranty card.I returned my unit to the vendor. Overall impression: a piece of cheap junk. I would hope theywould drop this line so as to save other musicians the hassle. Bottom line: I'm still in the market for a decent lightweight 76 key controller.

Highly disappointing, and misleading description

Comments about CME UF-70 76-Key Master Keyboard MIDI Controller:

I can't recommend this keyboard. First off, it's important to note that CME has no concept of what "semi-weighted" means. Semi-weighted traditionally means keys that look and feel like piano keys, but don't have full hammer action to them and are a bit lighter. Make no mistake, the UF70 is synth action, with a bit of "fake" resistance added to it.On top of that, the keys themselves are flimsy and wiggle left and right a bit. The aftertouch is shoddy, giving varying values depending on the key you're hitting. Getting a decent dynamic performance out of this keyboard is difficult.Poorly constructed keyboard. I'd suggest skipping CME altogether as a brand. Even their UF80 and VX8 don't have a proper hammer action feel to them. Try the FATAR Studiologic SL-990XP, can't go wrong with the action on those keys! FATAR used to manufacture the keybeds for Yamaha, that's why those boards are favored so much. (unfortunately, I've heard now that CME will be manufacturing the keybeds for Yamaha)

Poorly Engineered

Comments about CME UF-70 76-Key Master Keyboard MIDI Controller:

If you are considering this keyboard MIDI controller, it's probably because you are comparing the feature set on this keyboard to others on the market - at least I did. I thought this would be a great value in terms of features for the money, but I was wrong. The BASIC functionality of the keyboard is flawed. The two middle F keys on my keyboard do not register soft notes. After touch? It's extremely inconsistent with little control. Some keys need a little pressure for it to kick in while others it's impossible to reach the max after touch value no matter how hard you press. The keys were lighter than I expected, but this is my first "semi-weighted" bored, so I don't have a lot to compare the key weight to. The USB connection was a nice feature and worked well.
