    Very good

    It is really a very nice midi for capturing my Miditzer theater organ computer program. I like the red color which is why I ordered it! I don't know how to work all the knobs on top which are not needed for what I do but I wish they would tell me what cd or program I could get on line to learn to play other sound sources on it. Buy it and you will like the feel of the keys comparable and as good as a $5,000.00 Yamaha. It looks great too in my You Tube videos.

    Good midi board for the price

    I purchased this as a demo. I wanted a quick solution to recording in cubase without having to use my audio interface. I bought the 610 because of its ability to assign knobs to VST's like Massive. What I love about the board is it was very easy to use. I plugged it in and was utlizing my VST's right away. The board seems sturdy and the action was better than I expected. The keys are not semi-weighted, but for the price they are solid. Well Done Behringer.

    A good, flexible, no-frills controller

    I got this controller several years ago, and it has proved successfully its functionality and good quality, I love it. It has proved to have very good cost-benefit ratio.

    - It's lightweight –though it doesn't feel cheap–, and it's easy to move around, at least easier than my Kurzweil PC-88.
    - If you know about MIDI it's VERY flexible controller, you can squeeze a lot of functionality from it.
    - It's not very intuitive to program, but, hey, if you've programmed a Yamaha DX-100, or a TX-81z, this is pretty easy.
    - It's reliable. Period.
    - The MIDI output makes it more versatile than a USB-only interface, and enables me to control older synths without a computer directly from the UMX or from the computer.
    - The number of the assignable controllers is very good for most applications, for instance, controlling a software synth or an interactive PD or Max-MSP patch.
    - It's really plug-and-play, I've tried it with Mac, Linux and Windows and it works right away. No hassle at all.
    - The synth keys have all the disadvantages of the synth keys in every synth keyboard, but they don't feel flimsy, as in a lot of comparable –and even more expensive– keyboards.
    - The included audio interface is just... meh, it's not bad, but it's not a lot, still you could find a good use for it. Actually it saved me years ago when my trusty old M-Audio Omnistudio interface died on the road.
    - The software it's of little value, it included an exotic multi-platform DAW –which I've used in Linux–, and the very obsolete NI Kore player.

    Bottom Line: If you're not into the colourful lights and other bling, you'll enjoy it. It's a good, useful controller.

    Key action and velocity curve ruin it

    I got this keyboard to use with my iPhone since it was battery powered and had midi, seemed like a good deal, well that is if the key action was usable. It's mushy and unresponsive, the velocity curve jumps drastically around the mid point, you either have to set it at 1 or at 3 to be usable and even then it's just half of what it's supposed to be. You're better off with the alesis and letting your ipad power it. And I got it for $100, so imagine if you paid full price for it.
