After a sneak preview at the January NAMM show by US distribution partner Yamaha Corporation of America, CME officially announces the VX Series Keyboard Controllers. These powerful and flexible controllers are the first of their kind to include DAW integration features like motorized 60mm faders and a modular expansion bay. The VX series Keyboard Controllers are designed to provide the ultimate in control for the demanding lives of today's musicians. 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 VX Series feature 64 different types of programmable controllers including motorized faders, knobs, trigger pads, a ribbon controller, buttons, pitch bend and modulation wheel, transport controls, pedals, and a breath controller. These flexible keyboards have an amazing array of uses such as controlling a DAW and virtual instruments in the studio, triggering patterns and controlling sound rigs on stage, and recording audio into a laptop while on the go. The VX Series include a built-in USB audio and MIDI interface, eliminating the need for an extra audio interface when used for computer recording. The VX internal memory can hold program data as well as PadStyle? MIDI songs and patterns, complete with loop variation and chord change, which can be triggered from the unit's onboard pads. The VX's built-in expansion slot allows for expanding your VX with current and planed modules such as a FireWire audio interface, a sound module with sampling function, an analog synthesizer module, and a digital mixing console module.
