CME M-Key 49 key USB Controller Keyboard— The CME M-Key is a 49-key MIDI controller keyboard - a simplified version of the U-Key Mobiltone, but retaining all the U-Key spirit.
Product Ref: 11152
The M-Key 49 features ultra-thin full-action semi-weighted keys, a programmable auto-centring joystick for control over pitch and modulation, a programmable slider / volume control, and data / octave shift buttons.
USB and MIDI out connections permit use with MIDI devices or with your PC or Mac.
49-Note Full-Size Semi-Weighted Keyboard
The CME M-Key Mobiltone features 49 full-size semi-weighted synth-action keys with a choice of four velocity curves. The curves can be used to adjust the dynamic response of the keyboard to match your playing style and the sounds being played. It is a solid and comfortable keyboard to play.
Octave Shift and Transpose
By default, the two data buttons will shift the keyboard up or down by up to three octaves. This allows you to play notes outside of the normal four octave range. By holding down the shift button, the data buttons can also be used to transpose the keyboard up or down in semitones (by up to one octave). This is useful for playing tunes in a different key without having to learn how to play them all over again! The data buttons can also be assigned to other functions.
Program Change and Bank Select
Both MIDI Program Change messages and Bank Select (MSB and LSB) messages can be transmitted from the CME M-Key. These commands are used to change sounds on a software instrument or hardware sound module/synthesizer remotely.
Control and Expression - Joystick, Slider and Foot Pedals
Whilst avoiding the sophistication of CME's more advanced controller keyboards with their vast arrays of knobs, sliders and pads, the M-Key still allows you to inject life and expression into your performance courtesy of a joystick, slider and a two foot pedal sockets.
This defaults to pitch bend on it's horizontal axis, modulation when pushed forward and aftertouch when pulled backwards and is great for adding bends, slides, vibrato (and more!) into your real-time performance. Alternatively, the backwards (downwards) motion may be assigned to a wide range of other MIDI controllers. For example, it could be assigned to MIDI Controller number 74 which is commonly used for real-time manipulation of a synthesizers filter cutoff, and filter cutoff on a joystick is most definitely a fun way to make some squelchy synth noises!
Defaulting to adjust the volume of your sound, this may also be assigned to a wide range of other controllers as per the joystick and foot pedals.
Two Foot Pedal Sockets:
You can connect either switch or continuous type pedals to the two foot pedal sockets. Switch type pedals are commonly used as a sustain pedal (like on an acoustic piano) and continuous pedals would most commonly be used to control volume (like the volume pedal on an organ), but both sockets are assignable to a wide range of MIDI controllers, so the choice is yours. When switch pedals are connected, the polarity may be selected (per socket), and this ensures compatibilty with a wide range of sustain pedals.
Easy USB Computer Connection!
The CME M-Key controller keyboard may be connected to a PC or Macintosh computer via the supplied USB cable. The M-Key is USB MIDI class-compliant with Windows XP, Vista and Mac OS X which means the keyboard will automatically be detected by your computer.
