USB Masterkeyboard with hammer mechanism - Factory refurbished special items

CME VX 8 is a fully featured USB Masterkeyboard with ALPS motor faders and an overwhelming abundance of controllers, as well as a built-in USB audio interface and a well playable hammer action keyboard. The keyboards are Class Compliant and are immediately recognized by the computer without drivers.

The VX 8 offers an overwhelming variety of controllers, function keys and connectors

The most spectacular feature of the VX 8, besides the hammer action keyboard, is the 9 ALPS motor faders, with which you can easily create automated mixes. With the twelve trigger pads - whose velocity can be adjusted in 10 curves - drum patterns can be programmed excellently or events of any kind can be "fired". 8 knobs and 9 endless knobs are available for editing plug-ins and effectively "bending" sounds. You can't just express your live play with the Pitchbend and Modulation Wheels: The VX series also features a ribbon Controller and the ability to connect one (optional) Breath Controller and two freely assignable pedals.

Hammer mechanics Quality keyboard with touch dynamics and aftertouch

VX 8 features the proven semi-weighted CME quality keyboard with velocity response and aftertouch. CME -typical is the road-suitable processing of the keyboards. The robust metal chassis not only looks elegant with its aluminium panel, but also guarantees maximum durability - in the studio as well as on stage. For the dynamics of the keyboard you can choose between 10 different stop curves. In addition, the keys can be assigned different scales or ethnic temperings if required.

Style Sequenzer & Audio Interface

In "Style Sequencer" mode, MIDI files or parts of files can be placed on the trigger pads. By pressing the pads you start the song sections and can influence them with the faders and knobs in realtime. The VX Series keyboards feature an integrated 32-bit CPU and USB audio interface. Firmware, data and song updates are possible via USB. The VX series is "Class Compliant" under Windows and Mac OS X and is immediately recognized by the computer. ( MIDI - Controller and USB- MIDI functions work without problems in current operating systems. However, the audio drivers were only maintained up to Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard).

Full connections

The rear of the VX 8 leaves nothing to be desired: 4 MIDI outputs for controlling external MIDI hardware and one MIDI input. The integrated USB audio interface offers 2 adjustable mic/line inputs and 2 line outputs. In addition, 2 stereo headphones can be connected. Furthermore there are 2 sockets for sustain and/or Expression pedals as well as a connection possibility for a BC3 Breath Controller . In addition to the standard USB port, the VX series also has a 2-way USB hub. This is practical to connect a USB light or a mouse etc. directly to the keyboard. Links Beside the MIDI sockets there is a slot for retrofitting optional expansion modules under a dummy panel.

Configuration and programming... a real pleasure with the VX series. With the many function buttons, the large data wheel, the 10-digit block and the 2x 16-digit LC display, the keyboards can be conveniently prepared for use. For the sake of clarity, most buttons are equipped with a Status LED, and the trigger pads also have a Status backlight: you are always in the picture.
If required, a total of 64 Controller functions of your choice can be assigned. The keyboard can be divided into up to 4 zones. For each zone, the MIDI channel, MIDI output, velocity, Oktave and transposition can be set separately. Successful settings can be stored permanently in the 50 memory locations of the user bank.
Thanks to the U-CTRL function, a simple push of a button is all it takes to adapt the VX keyboard to the © control template of most common DAW programs.
