Nothing but problems

Ask me a question

I got my CME VX-5 Intelligent Keyboard MIDI Controller two days ago and quickly had my excitment turned to frustration. The manual for this controller is the worst I?ve ever seen and the Support on the website is very disappointing. This controller is not USB powered like the specs say. If you don't plug in the power supply only about a third of the function work, they behave oddly, and you can?t read the LCD screen. After plugging in the power supply it seemed to work nicely, but would trigger a sustained key for note and not the others. Also one note/key and try to "save" would try to save the song. Never could U-ctrl to work with Cubase. Updating the firmware turned mine into a brick and rendered the keyboard useless despite following the instructions to the letter. This was a real let down for me.
