M-Audio is now shipping Evolution’s new UC-33e, a compact controller designed for use with any computer/MIDI setup. The UC-33e allows instant and simultaneous controls of up to 47 different parameters via its 24 assignable rotary controllers, nine assignable sliders and 14 assignable buttons including a 10-button keypad.

Thirty-three nonvolatile memory locations allow quick and easy setup changes. The UC-33e can be used with a conventional MIDI setup for live performances or as a remote controller for an existing studio rack. When used in stand-alone mode, the MIDI Out can be used to send MIDI controller data to a MIDI rack. The UC-33e comes with preconfigured settings for use with a variety of popular plug-ins, virtual instruments and host applications (including presets for Propellerhead Reason’s Malstrom, Subtractor, ReDrum, Dr.Rex, NN-19 and Mixer). The unit also ships with five color overlays for the front panel, customized for popular software programs such as Ableton Live, plus a blank template that users can tailor to their personal setup needs.

The UC-33e’s controller mute function mutes the output of all controllers, allowing users to position them before tweaking, thereby preventing parameters such as filter cut-off or amplitude levels from changing abruptly during performance. The unit also features a drawbar mode for the sliders, which greatly enhances the experience of playing virtual instruments such as Native Instruments’ B4 virtual Hammond organ.

The UC-33e ships with an extensive software bundle featuring a dedicated librarian program that gives PC users the ability to save, edit and share keyboard setups. Also included are Sound Studio II, a powerful MIDI and audio sequencer with VST plug-in support; Music Teacher, a tutorial program that teaches users to play the keyboard; MusicPlanet, an array of professionally recorded samples; and a large selection of VST plug-ins and virtual instrument demos.

The UC-33e carries an MSRP of $329.95 and is now shipping. For more, visit www.m-audio.com.
