Exhibiting a curious combination of modern and retro styling, the angular, contoured chassis is made entirely from metal. The UF5 is very solidly built and keygoard some inventive performance features. Our Verdict A heavy-duty controller with great keys. A heavy-duty controller with great keys.
This makes it much heavier than its similar-sized contemporaries, but also more robust.
All user reviews for the CME UF5
CME’s MIDI controller keyboards are designed to be hardy enough to withstand the rigours of life on the road yet also provide enough functionality to merit inclusion in a home studio setup. Each keyboard offers the same MIDI control features but has a different number of keys. Each rotary can operate either a designated function – such as pan – or a user-assigned parameter. Optional FireWire expansion board: The semi-weighted, synth-action keys are heavier than you’ll find on any other controller in this price range and feel great in use.
We’re looking at the four-octave UF5, the smallest model in the range.
The only problem is that they’re positioned too close together. The UF5’s top surface is peppered with controllers. Pros Brick out-house build quality.

The rotary controls are tactile, centre-detented offerings that operate smoothly. Four velocity curves are provided and aftertouch is supported, too.
The lack of any easy editing software might put some people off, but the UF5 is perfect for those who want a keyboard for the keyboadr as well as the studio. The functions of the sliders and rotaries can be set using the buttons next to them.
The sliders can be assigned to control volume levels for channels andand controller values of your choice, effectively giving you 24 sliders worth of control. The sliders’ design is less orthodox – these are all set flush with the controller’s surface and therefore it doesn’t matter that they’re packed tightly together.
The usual collection of connections lurks around the back of the UF5.
However, it lacks user presets and there’s no software editor. We like the idea of multi-use faders and rotaries, and the transport controls are very useful.
