While this controller has a lot to offer, (sliders+knobs) it is too expensive compared to other usb midi controllers offering similar features.
I have made extensive use of the UC33e for the last several years as a control surface for synths both rackmount and software and also for recording software and onstage to mix synths in V-stack. At least for me it is an easy product to use after initially taking a small amount of time learning how to make any one of its controls do just about anything you could want. With Enigma software its even easier. The technology from evolution is basically the same technology used in most m-audio controllers now. I have thrown this little box into a gig bag numerous times and it still works so the build is decent for a product of this type in this price range. I have used the UC33e in both the usb and in the wall power mode (incidentally you will need a wall transformer to use it for non computer midi applications). Even though I have three other midi controller keyboards I am still finding good use for the UC33e and will likely keep it around my studio for years to come.
I bought this product to use with Reason 3.0. The documentation says this product has 5 seperate presets to use with Reason. Reason only reconizes preset number 2,and uses it for all it seperate devices. It advertises 33 seperate presets but it is not recognised by the Reason program. Preset 2 does a fair job with the program but you must use your mouse quiet a bit on the rest of the program controls.
