Add it all up, and the UMA25S gives you the kind of control needed to realize your ideas quickly and intuitively. And we even sweeten the deal, the UMA25S also features a built-in USB/ MIDI audio interface – for plug and play recording directly to your PC or Mac* computer!
What is a MIDI Controller?
Simply put, a MIDI controller gives you the power to take command of any hardware device or software that understands MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). This means that MIDI addressable effects processors (such as delays, reverbs, etc.) and audio recording and editing software can be controlled with a single piece of hardware, a MIDI controller. This can be very handy indeed when you have lots of devices spread all around your workspace or stage.
Every UMA25S controller features our custom-designed, velocity-sensitive key-bed, which has been praised by the industry’s top product reviewers and players alike, for its responsiveness and playability.
More than MIDI
There are some things that just bear repeating. In addition to providing 25 velocity-sensitive keys for the slickest set of glissandos and snappiest arpeggios, the UMA25S also functions as a full-fledged USB audio interface for recording and podcasting. This powerful interface features a built-in mic preamp with dedicated Gain control, a Phones Output with its own dedicated Volume control, and stereo RCA I/O jacks for connecting external devices. The interface is so versatile, it even allows simultaneous recording of the Mic and Line inputs.
