UC44 - Universal Controller
The fader box
UC44 as big brother of the UC4 is a universal controller for all kinds of midi controllable
hard- and software.
The all-rounder has 8 push-encoders each with a 2-digit-display, 16 faders (60mm) and 35 buttons.
The encoders (with detents) are switchable to 32 groups which allows to control a total amount of 512 control parameters.
Various kinds of midi commands like program change, pitchbend, aftertouch and control change in relative and absolute mode with different acceleration amounts and min/max values are possible. All these properties are fully programmable on the devices very fast and easy for each control separately.
The encoders can work as high resolution 14bit controllers too (control change or pitchbend) which makes them suitable for sensitive parameters like resonating filter cutoffs or similar things.
Use the internal 8 setups to save your individual settings.
Backup and restore of all settings by sysex dumps are possible too.
The factory settings are perfect to control music and video software products out of the box if they are freely assignable. So any additional device programming isn’t necessary for many applications.
The flat box is also a great extension for your Ableton Live setup.
There you can control all the continuous parameters like track volumes, rack macros, send amounts and switchable parameters like clip launch, mute and track select. A special control surface script for Ableton Live 8/9 with all necessary mappings to control 16 tracks simultaneously is enclosed in the package.
