Price comparison

Design

Buttons will light up when pressed, resulting in better visibility to users.
2.Has a display
CME UF50 Classic
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

859mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

33779.32cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Controls & Buttons

1.Has octave buttons
CME UF50 Classic
The octave buttons are used to shift the keyboard up or down in one octave increments. This extends the range of the keyboard in either direction, which lets you play notes that lie outside the number of keys available.
2.Has transpose buttons
CME UF50 Classic
Transpose buttons are used for moving a collection of notes (pitches or pitch classes) up or down in pitch by a constant interval, usually in semitone increments.
The button is used to select independent banks of continuous controllers. Effectively, this allows you to control more independent parameters with the knobs, faders and buttons. The bank selector button is used to switch among the available banks.
The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
The transport controls are used to control playback, set the position of the playhead, start recording, activate the cycle region, or to move to the project start or end.
Faders can be either channel volume faders, pitch sliders, crossfaders or even EQs.

Keys & Pads

Velocity sensitive keys are just spring loaded keys that sound out louder the harder you hit them. If you "lightly" press a key, the sound will be quiet; the harder you press, the louder it gets.
2.Has semi-weighted keys
CME UF50 Classic
Similar to a weighted action keys, but with less resistance and a slightly springier release, semi-weighted keys are popular with many players. If you don’t need realistic piano response, but also don’t care for spring-loaded synth actions, a semi-weighted keyboard might be ideal for you.
The amount of keys the controller has on the keyboard.
The pads section is ideal to trigger loops and samples, using your finger drum skills.
Aftertouch keyboards are sensitive to the pressure applied to keys after the initial impact, and while the keys are being held down or sustained.

Ports

1.Has a MIDI-Out port
CME UF50 Classic
The MIDI-Out port is used for transmitting data.
When pressed, the sustain pedal allows all notes to sound and “vibrate” freely. All notes played will continue to sound until the pedal is released. This is perfect when you need a sturdy and responsive control over sustain.
Dedicated expression pedals let you have a hands-free control over your keyboard's volume, vibrato, and more.

Features

Devices can communicate in both directions with each other without any additional MIDI interface. The biggest advantage is that the USB connection can be used for everything; power supply, MIDI-in and MIDI-out. This means you need less cables.
2.The device is mappable
CME UF50 Classic
Users can map, set and regulate the entire midi controller giving different functionalities to all different buttons, knobs and faders. The device could be also set up with different softwares.
More memory locations allow users to save their preset/setup and have them ready to use again and again.
It is compatible with PCs and laptops running the Windows operating system.
It is compatible with Mac OS X devices such as MacBooks and iMacs.
