BEHRINGER today announced at The NAMM Show 2006 the launch of the EUROGRAND EG2040 and EUROGRAND EG1040 digital pianos and a brand-new UMX series of master keyboards — U-CONTROL UMX61, U-CONTROL UMX49 and U-CONTROL UMX25.

With 80 Watts of stereo power, the EUROGRAND EG2040 and EUROGRAND EG1040 require no traditional tuning or maintenance and are ideal for use at home, music schools and houses of worship. Each of them comes with an 88-note, weighted hammer-action keyboard to accurately recreate the feel of an acoustic grand piano. These digital grand pianos also offer 14 high quality RSM (Real Sound Memory) sounds, reverb plus modulation effects.

Other features of the EUROGRAND EG2040 and EUROGRAND EG1040 include:
  • Elegant wood-grained cabinet with black or dark rosewood finish and full modesty panel
  • Sliding key cover (EUROGRAND EG2040)
  • 14 high quality voices (Grand Piano, Acoustic Piano, E-Piano, Strings, Harpsichord, Organ etc) with up to a 64-note polyphony
  • High-quality Reverb, Modulation and Brilliance effects to add even more depth and richness

All three of the keyboards in the UMX series feature full-sized velocity-sensitive keys, 10 programmable MIDI controllers and eight user-set control buttons. Each UMX keyboard comes with 50 software instruments plus Ableton® Live Lite 4 BEHRINGER Edition and a USB/Audio interface to allow playing straight out of the box — in the studio as well as on stage.

Other features of the UMX series include:
  • Compact USB/MIDI controller keyboard with USB/Audio interface
  • Full-sized velocity-sensitive keys (U-CONTROL UMX61: 61 keys), (U-CONTROL UMX49: 49 keys) or (U-CONTROL UMX25: 25 keys)
  • Freely assignable modulation wheel, Volume fader and sustain foot pedal port
  • Eight high-resolution rotary controls plus eight assignable switches
  • Octave tone range via the octave shift function (U-CONTROL UMX61: 11-octave), (U-CONTROL UMX49: 10-octave) or (U-CONTROL UMX25: 8-octave)
  • Separate MIDI Out
  • Plug-and-play with Mac OS® X and Windows XP®
  • USB cable
