Loads of Features on the VX8!

The VX Series are powerful and flexible controllers that are the first of their kind to include DAW integration features like motorized 60mm faders and a modular expansion bay. A solid, all-aluminum chassis make these units extremely durable and sizes from 49 velocity-sensitive semi-weighted keys to 88 professional graded hammer action weighted keys make them ideal for studio, stage, or mobile use. The addition of USB audio I/O and motorized faders make these not just MIDI controllers, but the center of a computer based home studio.

CME VX8 At-a-Glance:
  • Built-in USB audio and MIDI interface with 9 motorized faders
  • Multi-faceted keyboard/MIDI tools
  • Touch-sensitive keys and MIDI controls

Built-in USB audio and MIDI interface with 9 motorized faders
Not content to be just another MIDI controller, the VX series sports two mic/line 1/4" inputs and 9 motorized 60mm faders. This enables the VX8 to function as a the centerpiece of a music creation workspace, handling all your MIDI and audio needs. The VX8 connects to your computer via USB, allowing you to download MIDI files. The VX8 is a great way to merge audio and MIDI in your studio.

Multi-faceted keyboard/MIDI tools
The VX8 supplies a Game mode, which users can use in conjunction with music books and VX to test their skill of performance. And if you've ever wanted to learn the scales and music from other cultures, you can use the built-in multi-ethnic scales to learn your way around these interesting musical forms. Also unique to the VX8 is U-CTRL which maps the controls of the VX8 to your production software. The expansion port allows for your VX8 to grow with you as your needs grow, adding such useful tools as an analog synth module, digital mixing console, and others.

Touch-sensitive keys and MIDI controls
Like the UF series controllers, the VX8 uses CME's hammer-action weighted keyboard with initial and after touch, and it's velocity sensitive. These keyboards were broadly used by many famous professional synthesizers and digital pianos in the past few years. The VX8 supplies up to 64 controllers of different types, including motor faders, encoder for data entry, knobs, trigger pads, ribbon controller, buttons, pitch bend, modulation wheel, transport buttons, jacks for pedals, and a breath controller input. All these controllers are programmable.
