2. USB Mode with MIDI OUT:
2.1 Driver installation
With Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X operating systems, the UMA25S is detected
as soon as you connect a USB cable to your computer. After detection, you can
kick off right away. Thanks to the implementation of Core Audio in Mac OS X, it is
possible to process your audio with extremely low latency.
2.1.1 Windows XP MIDI driver

Optionally, you can install the BEHRINGER MIDI driver found on the supplied
CD. The advantage of this driver is its multi-client support, which lets you
simultaneously use several MIDI programs together with the UMA25S.
Another advantage is that the model name is displayed in the selection dialog
box of the MIDI driver.
Information on installing the driver is found on the CD in the ReadMe file of the
according folder.
◊ Find more software and driver updates at behringer.com.
2.1.2 Windows XP/Vista audio driver
Optionally, you can also install the BEHRINGER USB ASIO driver, which is
included on the CD as well. Use this driver in case you want to work with the least
possible latency of audio signals. Most professional music applications, such as
Ableton Live and energyXT2 Compact, use ASIO drivers.
Information on installing the driver is found on the CD in the ReadMe file of the
according folder.
2.2 Music software
Fig. 1.6: USB mode with MIDI OUT
In this mode, the keyboard messages are transmitted via USB to the computer
and simultaneously to MIDI OUT. The messages from the computer are only
picked up by the UMA25S and not passed on to MIDI OUT.
This mode is ideal for recording your keyboard performance to your computer
even when your sequencer or virtual instrument produces high latencies. To avoid
this problem, use a rack synthesizer while recording but the virtual instrument
during playback. The MIDI messages are sent to the computer and, at the same
time, to the MIDI output.
Selecting the USB mode:
1. Press the EDIT/EXIT push button.
2. Press the key on the keyboard labeled MIDI OUT or MIDI THRU.
3. Press ENTER to confirm or EDIT/EXIT to cancel.
The selected USB mode is now active and the keyboard automatically switches
back to Play Mode.
The UMA25S comes with a comprehensive software bundle that covers virtually
all aspects of music production and live performance plus lets you produce your
own audio podcasts.
2.2.1 Music production
energyXT2 Compact (on separate CD) gives you a fully professional Digital
Audio Workstation (DAW) for Mac OS X und Windows XP/Vista operating systems,
ideal for sophisticated and creative audio and MIDI productions as well as live
performances. The included application Audacity is simply the universal audio
editor for Mac and PC. What’s more, you can find so-called hosts, or “hosting”
applications, on the CD which allow you to load plug-ins (instruments and
effects) and use these for live performances.
2.2.2 Instruments and effects
Many instruments and effects (more than 150 arranged in categories) are found
in the „Win“ and „Mac“ folders that can be used in the applications described
in 2.2.1. The scope ranges from virtual analog synthesizers, electric organ
emulations, pianos, drum machines to high-quality studio effects such as reverb,
chorus, compressor, delay and many more. But we’ve also added several exotic
ingredients to spice up your sound. For example, there’s the lo-fi effect, the Tube
Amp Simulator, the Chinese Flute and the Singing Monk.
2.2.3 Podcasting software
As a special bonus, we’ve thrown in the proven and popular podcasting software
bundle, giving you the tools you need to make your own podcasts—from the
first spark of an idea to uploading your final podcast. As for the supplied headset,
you can use it to capture spontaneous ideas or comment on your own music.
For details, refer to the included podcast quick-start guide.

(1) The keyboard of the UMA25S has 25 velocity-sensitive, full-size keys with
half action.
(2) The OCT </> push buttons allow you to shift the keyboard range up to
4 octaves up or down. These push buttons are also used for trans­position
(see Chapter 5.2.2).
(3) Press the MMC push button to use the default MMC (MIDI Machine Control)
functions of the control elements E1 to E8. The MMC functions are printed on
these control elements.
(12) The push buttons E1 – E8 can have any MIDI functions assigned to them.
By pressing the MMC push button (3) once, these push buttons use the
preconfigured transport control functions (see Chapter 5.5.7).
(13) The 8 high-resolution rotary knobs E9 – E16 generate Continuous
Controller messages. In Edit Mode, the rotary knobs can be assigned to any
controller number.
(4) Press the MUTE push button to suppress sending MIDI messages. This allows
you to move control elements without changing the parameter values.
(5) Press the PRESET push button to load a preset.
(6) Press the EDIT/EXIT push button once to switch to Edit Mode. By pressing
the button a second time, you exit Edit Mode without having accepted
any changes.
(7) The –/+ push buttons let you select a preset. Press both buttons at the same
time to silence stuck MIDI notes (PANIC).
(8) The 3-digit LED display briefly indicates the current firmware version when
the keyboard is switched on, after which the selected preset number is
displayed. In Play Mode, the display shows the value changes in real time
when operating the control elements. In Edit Mode, the display shows the
MIDI commands, program and channel numbers as well as parameter values.
(9) The PITCH BEND wheel (E17) lets you change the pitch in real time. This way
a tone can be bent several semitones up or down while playing. The desired
pitch interval is adjusted on the controlled device. The PITCH BEND wheel
returns to the center position as soon as you let go of it.
(10) The MOD WHEEL (E18) works like a typical modulation wheel (MIDI CC 1).
When you let go of the modulation wheel, it keeps the set value.
(11) The VOLUME slider (E19) controls the volume (MIDI Controller 07).
◊ The Pitch Bend wheel, the modulation wheel and the VOLUME slider are
not restricted to their preconfigured functions, but can also have other
control functions assigned to them.

allows you to adjust the volume level balance between the recording signal
and the playback signal.
(15) The MONITOR ON/OFF switch activates the Direct Monitor function.
The recording signal found at the MIC or LINE input is fed to the output
connectors LINE OUT and PHONES in order to avoid latency and the resulting
timing problems while recording.
(16) The LEVEL control lets you adjust the volume level of the headphone signal.
Turn the control completely to the left before plugging in the headphones to
avoid damage due to high volume levels.
(17) Plug the green headphone connector of the supplied headset into the
PHONES connector.
(18) Plug the red connector of the headset or any dynamic microphone into the
MIC IN connector.
(19) The LEVEL control adjusts the input volume of the microphone signal.
Make sure the input signal does not clip (distortion).
◊ To prevent unwanted noise, always be sure that the input volume level
is turned down to MIN when a microphone is not being used.

(22) MIDI OUT allows the UMA25S to connect to a computer. On the other hand,
it provides a connection to additional MIDI devices, making the UMA25S
a full-fledged MIDI interface for the host computer next to its master
keyboard functionality.
(23) The EXPRESSION connector lets you hook up a foot pedal which can be used
to control assignable MIDI data. The foot pedal typically controls the volume
level, which is then referred to as expression pedal, but can also be used to
control a filter’s cutoff frequency or even a typical wah effect.
(24) The SUSTAIN connector allows you to connect a Sustain pedal.
This connector is assigned by default to the MIDI parameter “Damper Pedal”
(Sustain, CC 64), which represents a switch controller. When the pedal is
pressed (and held) while in normal Play Mode, it generates a controller with
the value 127. As soon as the pedal is released, the controller jumps to the
value 0 (which is the typical behavior of a piano’s sustain pedal). Aside from
this, you can assign the pedal connector to any MIDI controller as is the case
with the push buttons.
(25) This is the USB connector on the UMA25S. The connector (type B) on the
device is connected to a free port (type A) on the host computer using the
supplied cable. It is compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 standards.
(26) Use the DC IN connector to supply the UMA25S with power from an external
power adapter (not included).
(27) The POWER switch is used to turn the UMA25S on and off. Be sure the
POWER switch is turned to the “Off” position when connecting to the mains.
◊ Please close all software applications before turning off the UMA25S or
disconnecting the USB cable while the computer is on.

to record several signals onto the computer and to play several recorded takes or
playbacks simultaneously. Additionally, it lets you listen to the entire recording
on loudspeakers (or headphones). Figure 4.1 shows a possible setup with
the UMA25S.
Connect the subgroup outputs with the inputs of the UMA25S. It is possible
to connect either the TAPE INPUT connectors or your monitor speakers to the
outputs of the interface. For monitoring purposes, plug the stereo headphones
into the PHONES output on the UMA25S or into the headphone output on the
mixer. Use the supplied USB cable to connect your computer by way of the
USB port.
By routing the channels you want to record to the subgroups, it is now possible
to use the mixer’s channels to record one instrument after the other onto your
computer. If you connect the outputs of the UMA25S to the free channel inputs
(not via TAPE INPUT), make sure that the signal is not switched to the subgroup
but to the main output of your mixer to avoid feedback. Be also sure to select the
correct monitoring paths in the Control Room section on the mixing console.
If you feed the UMA25S back through a channel input (not TAPE INPUT), you can
set up an additional monitor mix for performing musicians by using the Aux Send
(for example, Aux 1) of the specific channel. In case the musicians want to hear
themselves as well as the playback or previous recording takes, use the Aux Sends
in the recording channels to mix the recording signals with the monitor mix.

U-CONTROL UMA25S User Manual
5. UMA25S as USB/MIDI Controller
At the highest control level of the U-CONTROL, you play and control the MIDI
data (Play Mode). The UMA25S has an array of control elements with which you
can control your MIDI equipment via the MIDI output (22) or with which you are
able to control your computer applications via USB (using the MIDI standard).
Most Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) are capable of receiving control data
according to MIDI specifications.
The controls comprise keyboard, Pitch Bend and Modulation wheel, Volume control
slider, 8 rotary knobs, 8 push buttons as well as Sustain and Expression pedals.
Display:
The current firmware version appears on the screen as soon as the keyboard is
switched on, after which the current preset number is shown. When moving a
control element, the value changes are displayed.
Control elements:
It is possible to use more than one button, knob, slider, etc., at the same time and
that their data are simultaneously sent via MIDI.
In principle, there are two options for assigning control elements:
• You are using one of the presets with the default controller configuration
(see Table 7.3). In this case, you need to specify the assignments on the
receiving device.
• You are you using your own controller configuration that you created in Edit
Mode. Find out how to make assignments on the UMA25S in Chapter 5.4.
The following gives you a detailed description on how to use the UMA25S.
Please note the difference that is made between push buttons (see control
elements (2) – (7) and (12) ) and keys on the keyboard (control element (1) )!
Please do not confuse these two control elements!
5.1 Presets
The UMA25S has 16 memory locations to store your own presets. You can find the
settings of the default presets (Table 7.4) in the appendix. The most recently used
preset is loaded when the device is switched on.
5.1.1 Loading presets
There are several ways to load a preset:
Selecting presets directly:
• Press the PRESET push button for a second and select the preset you want
to use with the push buttons E1 – E8. The new preset number is shown on
the display.
or:
• Press and hold down the Preset push button while pressing the key (1–8)
with the number of the preset you want to use. The new preset number is
shown on the display.
Selecting presets by manually stepping up or down:
• Select a preset with the +/– push buttons ((7) ) found below the display.
The new preset number is shown on the display. Make sure that none of the
push buttons (3) to (6) (MMC, MUTE, Preset, EDIT) are pressed.
or:
• Press and hold down the Preset push button while turning one of the rotary
knobs E9–E16. The preset number is shown on the display. As soon as you
press the Preset push button a second time (LED goes out), the new preset
is activated.
5.1.2 Storing presets
1. Press the EDIT/EXIT push button (6) for a second.
2. Press the key with the STORE function. “Str” appears on the display,
representing the Store function.
3. Press one of the 8 push buttons E1–E8 or turn one of the rotary knobs
E9–E16 to select the memory location in which you want to store
your preset.
4. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
◊ You can also select the memory locations 1 to 8 using your keyboard
(keys labeled with the numbers 1–8). The memory locations 9 to 16 can
only be selected using the rotary knobs.
The EDIT LED goes out.
• If you want to overwrite the current preset, press the STORE key and then the
ENTER key (skip step 3).
• You can cancel the storing process by pressing the EXIT push button.
We intentionally did not include an auto-store function. This way you can assign
a different MIDI message to a control element without changing the current
preset. If you want to restore a preset, simply load another preset and then
return to the old preset. All data have now been restored, including the default
function of the control element that had been changed for the time being.
5.1.3 Restoring default presets
1. Press the EDIT/EXIT (6) and MUTE (4) push buttons together. The display
shows “GLb” (for Global Mode).
2. Turn the E14 rotary knob. The display shows “FAC” (for Factory Reset).
3. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
◊ Caution! With Factory Reset, all configured data and user presets
are irreversibly deleted! To avoid an accidental deletion, save your
presets by sending a SysEx dump to your computer beforehand
(see Chapter 5.7).
• You can cancel the process by pressing the EXIT push button.
5.2 Real-time control using the
control elements
The UMA25S’ possibilities of application are extremely versatile. The following
gives a couple of general instructions and examples to help you get started as
quick as possible.
What exactly does the UMA25S do?
Simply put, it’s a remote control for all kinds of MIDI equipment. An entire array
of control messages can be generated by the keyboard, slider, rotary knobs and
push buttons as well as the foot pedals. These control elements allow you to
control various functions of external devices (hardware and software) in real
time. That’s particularly the case with software mixers, sound generators
and effects. The software applications are often copies of “real” gear—their
functionality simulated and displayed on the computer.

U-CONTROL UMA25S User Manual
What can I control with the UMA25S?
5.2.1 Changing the velocity curve
Basically, you can control any device that is MIDI compatible. Both hardware and
software MIDI devices are controlled in exactly the same way. The only difference
between them is the wiring.
You can adjust the UMA25S’ sensitivity which has an effect on the velocity with
which the keys are pressed and therefore also on the volume level.
Below are a couple of suggestions on how you can use your UMA25S:
1. Press the EDIT/EXIT push button.
• Playing external sound generators (for example, MIDI sound modules,
2. Turn the E9 rotary knob completely to the right. “crV” (which stands for
Velocity Curve) appears on the display.
• Editing sound parameters of (virtual) synthesizers, sound samplers and
3. Select the desired velocity curve with the E11 rotary knob. You can select one
of the following options:
rack synthesizers and virtual instruments)
GM/GS/XG sound generators
• Controlling parameters on effects equipment and software plug-ins, such as
effects processors, compressors and digital equalizers
FIXED: The velocity curve is switched off (as is the case with an organ).
The keyboard always sends the same velocity value. This value can be
adjusted with the E12 rotary knob.
• Remotely controlling software mixers (functions for volume, panorama,
SOFT: The keyboard responds to the finest nuances. Applying different
pressures to the keys can make a big difference in volume.
• Remotely controlling transport functions (Play, Fast Forward, Stop, etc.)
MEDIUM: The velocity curve is linear.
• Live control of volume and sound parameters of sound modules on stage
HARD: The velocity curve is non-sensitive. You have to hit the keys very hard
in order to play loud.
mute, etc.)
on sequencers, hard-disk recorders, drum machines, etc.
• Remotely controlling groove boxes, step sequencers, MIDI generators and
other “live” software
• Controlling program changes and volume level on sound generators
• Suitable for band keyboardists, DJs, sound engineers, home and project
studio owners, theater technicians, etc.
And how does it work?
Each control element of the UMA25S can be assigned to particular MIDI
parameters. Assignments are carried out in Edit Mode (see Chapters 5.3 and
5.4). Whenever one of these control elements is used, the UMA25S generates
the control data assigned to this control element which are then transferred
to external devices over a data link. For this reason, the VOLUME slider is set by
default to send data that controls the volume level of a channel, for example.
The control data generated by the individual control elements are also referred
to as MIDI messages. Generally, MIDI messages can be divided into three
major groups:
• Channel Messages: These messages are used to transmit channel-specific
control information. An example of a channel message is the Note On
message. As soon as a key is played on the UMA25S’ keyboard, the device
generates a message which holds the information for pitch, channel number
and velocity. This way the receiving sound generator recognizes which tone
has to be played.
• System Messages: These messages are not channel- specific, but affect
the entire system to which they are sent. They are divided into three
subcategories: System Exclusive Messages (for operating system backup,
updates and management of memory contents); System Real-Time
Messages (for remote control of other devices, etc.); System Common
Messages (for synchronizing several devices, etc.).
• Control Messages: These are also known as Control Changes or
Controllers, abbreviated to “CC”. There are 128 controllers in total,
numbered from 0 to 127 (refer to the table of controllers in the appendix).
The controllers are channel-specific.
◊ MIDI information consists of control data and contains no audible audio
data! The data trans­mission takes place over 16 channels.
4a. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
4b. Alternatively, press the EXIT push button to cancel any changes made.
These settings need not be saved.
5.2.2 The octave and transpose functions
The OCT </> push buttons can be used to shift the pitch in octave intervals.
This is useful because the UMA25S consists only of 25 keys, whereas the MIDI
specification includes 128 notes. In case you want to play a bass line, it can be
useful to move the keyboard range downward.
Alternatively, the OCT </> push buttons can be used to tranpose notes in
semitones so that you can play a piece in a key that works for you. In order to do
so, you need to adjust the settings in Edit Mode.
◊ When the power is turned on, the Octave function is active by default.
Octave function:
Use the OCTAVE </> push buttons to shift the keyboard’s playing range up to
4 octaves.
• Press OCT> to play the keyboard an octave higher. The OCT> LED lights up.
• Press OCT< to play the keyboard an octave lower. The OCT< LED lights up.
• Press OCT< and OCT> at the same time to return to the default octave range.
◊ The status of the Octave function is indicated by the glowing (1 octave)
and flashing (2 and more octaves) of the respective push button’s LED.
◊ When the power is turned on, the default octave range is restored.
Activating the Octave function (OCT ASSIGN):
When the Transpose function is active, you activate the Octave function
as follows:
• Press the EDIT/EXIT push button. The device switches to Edit Mode.
The EDIT LED lights up.
• Press the OCT +/– key to select the Octave function.
• Press the ENTER key to confirm. The device switches back to Play Mode
(EDIT LED goes out).
13
U-CONTROL UMA25S User Manual
Transpose function:
5.2.4 The panic function
Use the OCTAVE </> push buttons to transpose upward or downward in
semitone steps.
The Panic function is provided to silence stuck MIDI notes. A MIDI note can get
stuck when the connection between the sending and the receiving device is
interrupted for some reason or other and the required Note Off message cannot
be received. This is perceived as a stuck note that doesn’t fade out.
• Press the OCT > to transpose upward in semitone steps.
• Press OCT < to transpose downward in semitone steps.
• Press OCT < and OCT > simultaneously to return to the default key.
◊ The status of the Transpose function is indicated by the glowing
(1 semitone) and flashing (2 and more semitones) of the respective
push button’s LED.
◊ When the power is turned on, the default key is restored.
Selecting the Transpose function:
When the Octave function is active, you activate the Transpose function as follows:
So, if you execute the Panic command, an “All Notes Off”, an “All Sound Off” and
a “Sustain Pedal Off” message is sent over all 16 channels. This way all connected
sound generators are silenced on the spot, after which you can continue your
work as usual.
• Press both push buttons (7) (+/–) at the same time to trigger a Panic
command. “Pnc” appears on the display for a short time.
5.2.5 The mute function
• Press the MUTE push button (4) . Its LED lights up.
• Press the TRANSP +/– key to select the Transpose function.
The Mute function lets you suppress sending MID messages. This way you can
change the positions of control elements without affecting the current settings of
the receiving device. However, value changes are shown on the display provided
it is active for the control element being moved.
• Press the ENTER key to confirm. The device switches back to Play Mode
• Press the MUTE push button again. Its LED goes out.
• Press the EDIT/EXIT push button. The device switches to Edit Mode. The EDIT
LED lights up.
(EDIT LED goes out).
◊ Octave settings, which have possibly been made, are maintained when
switching over to the Transpose function.
5.2.3 The MMC function
The control elements E1 to E8 have been preconfigured to control MIDI Machine
Control (MMC) messages, and they are activated by pressing the MMC push
button (3) .
• Press the MMC push button to activate the MMC function. The push button
LED lights up.
The MMC functions that are assigned to the control elements by default are
as follows:
E1 Loop: Activates the playback loop feature of the controlled music
software application.
E2 Locate: Jumps to the beginning of the track.
E3 REW: Rewinds.
E4 FFW: Fast-forwards.
E5 Stop: Stops playback. By pressing Play (E7) again, the track is played from
the beginning.
E6 Pause: Pauses playback. By pressing Play (E7) again, the track is played
from the current position.
E7 Play: Plays back.
E8 Punch In: Records.
In case your sequencer does not support receiving MMC messages, you can
probably control the transport section using note numbers or CC messages.
The MMC messages can be assigned to the 8 push buttons E1 – E8 in such a way
that the assigned functions are maintained independent of preset specification.
These functions are also preserved after the device is switched off and can be
activated at all times by simply pressing the MMC push button. This means
that the push buttons E1 – E8 can each share two functions: first, the function
assigned within a preset, and second, the assigned function that coincides with
presets as soon as the MMC push button is activated.
Assigning the 8 push buttons is described in Chapter 5.4. You simply have to press
the MMC push button (LED lights up) before activating Edit Mode.
◊ The Mute function does not affect the push buttons E1–E8 and the
Sustain pedal.
5.3 Assignment of control elements using the
learn function
The easiest way to assign MIDI functions to individual control elements is to use
the Learn function over remote assignment. For example, MIDI data sent from a
MIDI sequencer to your U-CONTROL are assigned to a control element in advance.
Not only CC, NRPN and Note messages can be received with the Learn function,
but almost any type of MIDI data including short SysEx strings.
1. Press and hold down the EDIT/EXIT push button.
2. Operate the control element that is supposed to learn the MIDI function.
3. Release the EDIT/EXIT push button.
4. Press the LEARN key. “Lrn” appears on the display while the MIDI device
waits for an external MIDI message.
5. Transmit the MIDI message to the UMA25S from the device you want
to control.
6. If valid MIDI data are received, the display shows “Gd!” (good). If invalid,
incorrect or too long, “Err” (error) appears on the display.
7a. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
7b. Alternatively, press the EDIT/EXIT push button to cancel the changes made.
The device switches to Play Mode (EDIT LED goes out).
◊ All settings made with this function are stored temporarily! If you
want to store the settings permanently, save them in a preset
(see Chapter 5.1.2).

your computer’s mouse.
6. When “Gd!” appears on the display, press the ENTER key.
Controller Mode:
7. To save these settings, store them in a preset.
The E14 rotary knob is provided to determine the switch behavior of the
selected control element. This option is only available for switch elements
(push buttons).
5.4 Assignment of control messages in
edit mode
It is possible to specify settings that are different from the presets. To do so,
you need to determine which control elements on the UMA25S generate which
MIDI messages.
You need to specify how the incoming controllers are to be interpreted on the
slave unit. At this point, we suggest you refer to the user manual of the slave unit.
General assignment of control messages in Edit Mode:
1. Press and hold down the EDIT/EXIT push button. The device switches to
Edit Mode and “Edt” appears on the display.
2. Use the control element you want to edit. The name of the control shows up
on the display (for example, “E10”).
3. Release the EDIT/EXIT push button. Its LED lights up.
4. Use the rotary knobs E9 – E16 to assign the MIDI messages to the selected
control element. The applicable MIDI messages and their descriptions are
found in the tables of Chapter 5.5.
◊ In case you want to check the current parameter settings, press the
push button (E1–E8) found under the rotary knob whose function you
want to examine. As soon as the push button is pressed, the settings
appear on the display for a short time. Alternatively, use the Show
Element function (see Chapter 5.6.1).
5a. Press the ENTER key to confirm. The EDIT LED goes out.
5b.Alternatively, press the EDIT/EXIT push button to cancel the changes and exit
Edit Mode. The EDIT LED goes out.
◊ All settings made with this function are stored temporarily! If you
want to store the settings permanently, save them in a preset
(see Chapter 5.1.2).
Comments on Step 4:
In Edit Mode, all settings are made by turning the knobs E9 – E16. The available
setting options depend on the data types being used.

Table 5.1: General assingment of rotary knobs in Edit Mode
Toggle Off corresponds to a push button function, which is comparable to
the switch of an electric door opener. The On value (value 1) is sent by pressing
the push button. The Off value (value 2) is sent by releasing the push button.
You should use this mode when triggering short sound effects and samples
(similar to playing a keyboard).
The Increment option is only available for the messages Program Change, CC,
NRPN and After Touch. This mode allows a stepwise increment of the controller
value each time the push button is pressed. Use E15 to adjust the step interval.
Controller Option:
Select the controller mode “Increment” to determine the step interval of the
push buttons by using the E15 rotary knob. This means that each time you
press one of the push buttons, the transmitted value is increased by the step
interval you specified in advance. If the step interval is set to “10,” values 0,
10, 20, 30 ... 110, 120, 0, 10, etc. are sent one after another. You can also enter
negative values (for example, -10) to achieve a gradual decrement. In case you
have specified the lowest and highest transmittable values using the E12 and E13
rotary knobs, all other values stay within this range. With this function, you can
use your U-CONTROL to operate control push buttons that have more than two
switching states.
Display Value:
Use the E16 rotary knob to determine whether value changes are to be
displayed on screen or not. If you decide to use the display for this purpose,
you can see the current values while using the control element. The preset
number reappears shortly after letting go of the control element.
The various MIDI functions are described in detail in Chapter 5.5.

The control push buttons support the controller modes “Toggle On”, “Toggle Off”
and “Increment”. Toggle On is comparable to a switching function (for example,
the light switch of a room). The “On” value, which is specified with the E12
rotary knob (value 1), is sent by pressing the push button the first time. Press the
push button a second time to send the “Off” value, which is specified with the
E13 rotary knob (value 2). This setting is ideal for triggering drumloops from a
sampler (press once = Start, press a second time = Stop).

5.5 MIDI messages
5.5.1 Program change and midi bank select
Program Change messages are used to activate the memory banks of the
connected devices. 128 program numbers are available to activate presets.
For devices with more than 128 presets, there is the Bank Select function which
allows you to select a memory bank before sending a Program Change.
The Bank Select message consists of two parts: an MSB (Most Significant Bit)
part and an LSB (Least Significant Bit) part. The MSB part defines a range of 128
values and is the more important part of the Bank Select message for many MIDI
devices. The LSB part defines each one of the 128 MSBs in 128 additional steps.
The numbering for both parts ranges from 0 to 127.
In total, the Bank Select message offers an enormous range of 128 x 128 = 16,384
different values available for bank numbers. In theory, this means that you could
use external devices with as many different banks. Considering the fact that each
single bank includes another 128 single programs, you get unbelievable 2,097,152
different possibilities to organize your programs.
Use the E11 and E12 rotary knobs to select the banks. If a MIDI device contains
more than 128 presets/programs, a Bank Select message has to be sent
beforehand. Even though this is a controller command, it has to be sent before
the Program Change (and is therefore adjustable) since it is linked to the preset
change. If the Bank Select message is not needed, simply select “Off”.
If you choose a control which is a rotary knob, you can use the knob
to select a program number directly. It is also possible to assign a
permanent program number (selectable with E13), which is sent when
using the control. For push buttons/switch elements, you can use
the push button to select a permanently assigned program number
(using E13). This is practical when using the same preset over and over
again. Adjust the switch behavior by using E14: “Increment” means that every
time you press the push button the next incremental preset number—in a
predefined interval—is activated. “Single Preset” means that the push button
always switches to the same preset number.
◊ Table A.1 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
Examples of Program Changes:
Example 1:
You want the push buttons E1 – E8 to switch the program numbers
71–78 of your external rack synth. Program the first push button
as follows:
1. Press and hold down the EDIT/EXIT push button while pressing
the E1 push button. When E01 appears on the display, release the
EDIT/EXIT push button.
2. Turn E9 completely to the left so that the display shows “PC”
(which stands for Program Change).
3. Use E10 to select the MIDI channel on which your synth is ready
to receive.
4. Turn E11 and E12 completely to the right so that “OFF” appears on
the display.
5. Select the program number 71 by using E13.
6. Select “Single Preset” by using E14.
7. If the program number is to show on the display when pressing the
push button, select “ON” with E16.
8. Press the ENTER key to confirm. The EDIT LED goes out.
Result: Each time you press the push button, the program number 71 is
activated on the slave unit.
Program the push buttons E2 – E8 the same way with ascending
program numbers up to 78.
Example 2:
In case you want to program a push button in order for it to activate
a new preset every time it is pressed, this can be accomplished in
the following way: E11 = Off, E12 = 0; E13 = 127; E14 = Increment;
E15 = +8.
Result: The program number 0 is transmitted the first time the push
button is pressed, 8 the second time, 16 the third time, then 24, etc.
This way you can select each first preset of a sound bank, which is
organized in groups of eight.
Example 3:
In case you want to activate preset no. 6 in bank 8, adjust as follows:
E11 = 8, E12 = Off, E13 = 6.
Result: First, the UMA25S transmits the higher ranking bank
number 8 as CC, followed by the program number 6.

U-CONTROL UMA25S User Manual
5.5.2 Control changes
5.5.3 NRPN
The Control Change messages (CC) belong to the most “powerful” MIDI messages.
They allow you to control plenty of parameters and functions. You can assign CC
messages to each control element on the UMA25S. Since it is possible to use push
buttons, sliders and rotary knobs, the controller values can be controlled either
statically or dynamically in real time. A list of the assigned standard controller
numbers are found in Table A.1 of the supplementary sheet.
Apart from the CC messages, there are other controllers that don’t have a
standardized assignment and can be assigned variably from unit to unit.
These controllers are called NRPN (Non-Registered Parameter Number).
An NRPN is used when none of the standardized 127 controller numbers have the
necessary function.
The Controller message consists of a controller number and the included
controller values. The E11 rotary knob is used to determine the controller number.
Continuous elements allow you to define the value range with the E12
(minimum value) and E13 (maximum value) rotary knobs.
◊ Alternatively, you can invert the value scale by assigning 127 as the
minimum value and 0 as the maximum value (scale inversion). A classic
application of scale inversion is the drawbar control of virtual or digital
organs or organ expanders. In this manner, assign the controller 07
(volume) to a fader on the UMA25S and pulling up the fader attenuates
the signal. On the other hand, moving down the fader corresponds to
moving out the drawbars which increases the volume level.
Switch elements allow you to send different values when pressing and
releasing the push buttons (use the E12 and E13 rotary knobs to adjust). This is a
useful function when sending fixed parameter settings. The switch behavior is
adjusted with E14, and the step interval for the Increment function is adjusted
with E15.
CC messages triggered by keys:
In case you want to assign CC messages to push buttons, but all switch elements
have already been assigned otherwise, you can use the keys on the keyboard.
For more information, read Chapter 5.5.9.
◊ Table A.2 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
Examples of assigning controllers
(CC, NRPN, GS/XG):
You want to use the E9 rotary knob to adjust the resonance frequency of
a virtual analog synthesizer in real time. Follow the steps below:
1. Press and hold down the EDIT/EXIT push button and turn the E9
rotary knob. As soon as E09 appears on the display, release the
EDIT/EXIT push button.
2. Select the desired type of MIDI message (CC, NRPN, GS/XG)
by using E9.
3. Use E10 to select the MIDI channel on which your instrument is
ready to receive.
4. Select the controller number (or the controller name for GS/XG)
by using E11. If the MIDI implementation of your instrument
follows the standard assignment, this should be number 74.
5. Turn E12 completely to the left and E13 completely to the right in
order not to limit the control range of 0 to 127.
6. If a value is to show on the display when using a rotary knob,
select “ON” with E16.
7. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
Result: By turning the E9 rotary knob, you can change the
resonance frequency of the instrument in real time.
Select the parameter number using the E11 rotary knob (see Table 7.3 in the
appendix). Just like the CC messages, the value range can be adjusted with the
E12 (minimum value) and E13 (maximum value) rotary knobs (see Chapter 5.5.4).
◊ Table A.3 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
5.5.4 Note messages
Playing notes on the keyboard:
For keyboard virtuosos, Note messages belong to the essential MIDI messages.
Thanks to them, the UMA25S can be used to play external sound modules and
virtual instruments. The value range for Note messages consists of 128 (0 – 127)
note numbers. Although the UMA25S only has 25 keys, the entire keyboard range
is covered using the Octave function. The velocity corresponds to the volume level
of a velocity-sensitive (piano) keyboard. Even though the Note Off message is not
used that much anymore by keyboardists, the U-CONTROL is able to transmit this
status byte.
◊ To play the keyboard, no assignment in Edit Mode is required.
However, you have the possibility to send Note messages with the push
buttons (switch elements) and to specify the pitch of the keys.
Triggering Note messages using push buttons
(switch elements):
The UMA25S is able to send Note messages from the push buttons or the
footswitch in order to trigger drum loops and single sounds from a sampler,
for example. Many effects units allow you to tap delay times or song tempos
using Note messages. Since the push buttons are not velocity sensitive,
the transmitted velocity information is a fix value in this case, which is adjusted
with E12.
The Note number is specified using the E11 rotary knob. The Note C3 (middle C)
corresponds to the MIDI note value 60 (see also Table 7.2). The E12 rotary knob
allows you to adjust the velocity. E14 lets you specify the switch behavior
(Toggle On/Off). Turn E15 to discard the settings and return to the standard
keyboard assignment (reset function; display shows “reS”).
◊ It is not possible to assign Note messages to continuous
control elements.
Free assignment of Note messages to keys:
This function allows you to specify the pitch of each key on the keyboard.
For more information, read Chapter 5.5.9.
◊ Table A.4 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.

U-CONTROL UMA25S User Manual
5.5.5 Pitch bend
5.5.9 Using keys as control elements
The Pitch Bend wheel E17 on the UMA25S is used to change the pitch of a note.
It has its own type of message in the MIDI specification.
Not only the switch elements but also the keys on the keyboard can trigger
CC messages and Note messages. The advantage is that you don’t have to do
without the familiar feel of keys and velocity sensitivity. This means you have
25 more switch elements at your fingertips, with Note numbers that are freely
assignable (which is different to standard keyboard assignments). This is useful
when extracting individual drum sounds from a fixed assignment (for example,
a General MIDI drum set) in order to map them to adjacent keys, even when the
sounds are octaves apart. Another option is to map the notes of a melody to
adjacent keys in order to play the melody literally in sequence.
The Pitch Wheel message can also be assigned to other continuous elements
(such as slider, knobs and expression pedal). This message has its own status
byte, so that it is only possible to adjust the MIDI channel (E10 rotary knob),
the range (E12 rotary knob) and the display (E16).
◊ Table A.5 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
5.5.6 After-touch
Triggering Note messages with keys:
MIDI keyboards with after-touch are able to respond to pressure, even after the
key is hit, and to transmit this information. The function affects either specific
keys (Key Pressure) or all notes equally (Channel Pressure). The UMA25S keyboard
is not after-touch capable, but you can assign this function to other control
elements. This way you can control synthesizer parameters that are used to
control after-touch.
The data structure corresponds to that of the Note messages, except for the
Velocity, which can be played either with a fix value (0 – 127) or with the Velocity
of the keyboard (E12 rotary knob). Turn E15 to discard the settings and return to
the normal assignment of the keyboard (Reset function; “reS” on display).
Normally, the key value “All” is selected. This setting makes after-touch equally
affect all played notes (“Channel Pressure”). In case you want to use the less
common polyphonic after-touch (“Key Pressure”), you can apply after-touch to
single keys by using the E11 rotary knob. However, since this is only supported
by very few sound generators, Channel Pressure usually does the job. For the
selected switch element, use E12 to determine the value at which after-touch
turns on and E13 to determine the value at which it turns off. This way you can
also use after-touch to adjust the modulation range (effect depth).
The data structure corresponds to that of the CC messages for switching
elements, which can be played either with a fix value (0 – 127) or with the
Velocity of the keyboard (E12 rotary knob). The switch behavior is determined
with E14. Turn E15 to discard the settings (“reS” on display).
◊ Table A.6 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
5.5.7 MIDI machine control (MMC)
MIDI Machine Control allows you to operate the transport functions of a
sequencer or drum machine (for example, Start, Stop, Fast Forward and Rewind)
from the UMA25S.
The MIDI Machine Control functions are dedicated to the control push buttons
E1 – E8 (see Chapter 5.2.3) and are activated by pressing the MMC push
button (3) . You can specify the MIDI device number of the unit supposed to
receive MMC data by using the E10 knob. For the Locate function, it is necessary
to specify the position. In order to do so, the Frame Rate you are using has to be
entered in Global Setup (Chapter 5.7).
◊ Table A.7 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
5.5.8 GS/XG parameters
GS/XG parameters belong to the category of CC and NRPN messages specified
in the MIDI standards GM (General MIDI), GS (Roland) and XG (Yamaha)
(see Table 7.1). These standards also include dedicated program numbers for
certain sounds. If you have a sound module that supports one of the standards,
assigning parameters is as easy as it gets.
The data have a similar structure to that of CC and NRPN messages. Use the
E11 rotary knob to select the most important GS/XG-compatible parameters,
which are shown on the display as (shortened) plain text (see Table 7.1).
Just like the CC messages, the value range can be adjusted with the rotary knobs
E12 (minimum value) and E13 (maximum value).
◊ Table A.8 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
Triggering CC messages with keys:
◊ Table A.9 on the supplementary sheet gives you an overview of the
rotary knob assignment in Edit Mode.
Selecting multiple keys for the
Key Trigger function:
A special feature of the keyboard assignment lets you select multiple
keys at the same time. This helps you save time when assigning
messages, some of which are identical, or MIDI channels to different
keys. In a second step you can assign different MIDI channels,
Note values and Controller values to individual keys.
1. Press and hold down the EDIT/EXIT push button. The device
switches to Edit Mode.
2. Press the keys that you want to edit one after another. You can
either select consecutive keys or choose a range of the keyboard
with a sliding movement (glissando). It is also possible to select
single, non-consecutive keys. The Note numbers you choose are
now shown on the display in the order in which they are pressed.
3. Release the EDIT/EXIT push button.
4. With the rotary knobs, you can carry out the assignment of the
MIDI messages for the selected keys.
5. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
6. Save the assignments as preset.

Edit Mode.
6. Press the EDIT/EXIT push button to exit Edit Mode. The EDIT LED goes out.
◊ It is also possible to check the settings by pressing the push button
found below the rotary knob whose function you want to examine
(E1–E8). As soon as the push button is pressed, the setting appears on
the display for a short time.
5.6.2 Channel array function
Array function:
This practical function can be used to let several control elements send the same
MIDI message on different MIDI channels. It is available for the control element
groups E1–E8 and E9–E16.
1. Assign the first control element (E1 or E9) as already described
(see Chapter 5.4).
2. Press the EDIT push button.
3. Press the ARRAY key. “C_A” (which stands for Channel Array) appears on the
display for a short time, after which “E1” is shown. Each time you press the
ARRAY key “E1” or “E9” is displayed.
4. Press the ARRAY key until the display shows the name of the control element
that you assigned in Step 1.
5. Press the ENTER key to confirm.
The array of control elements has now the same function assigned to them,
but each element is consecutively assigned to incremental MIDI channel
numbers. Since the MIDI specification only provides 16 channels, the following
takes place: For example, if the first element uses Channel 12, the following
elements use the channel numbers 13, 14, 15, 16, 1, 2 and 3.
3. Press the SWAP key until the display shows the name of the control element
(E1 or E9) you want.
4. Press the ENTER key to confirm. As a result, the MIDI channels of the eight
control elements are switched around.
Example of the Channel Array function:
You want to control the volume level of 8 tracks in your sequencer with
all rotary knobs. Assign the first control knob as follows:
1. Press and hold down EDIT/EXIT.
2. Turn the E9 rotary knob.
3. Release EDIT/EXIT.
4. Using the rotary knobs, make the following assignments: E9 = CC;
E10 = Channel 1; E11 = Controller 7 (Volume); E12 = 0 (min. Value);
E13 = 127 (max. Value).
5. Press ENTER to confirm.
Assigning the other rotary knobs with the Array function:
6. Press EDIT/EXIT.
7. Press the ARRAY key. “C_A” appears on the display for a short time.
8. Press the ARRAY key until E9 appears on the display.
9. Press ENTER to confirm.
5.6.3 Channel assign function
The Channel Assign function lets you assign the SINGLE SEND CHANNEL for a
single control element or the superior GLOBAL SEND CHANNEL. Please consider
the different ways to proceed.

◊ Please note that the channel assignment in GLOBAL EDIT Mode differs
from the above described GLOBAL SEND CHANNEL method! For more
infor­mation, read Chapter 5.7.
5.6.4 Snapshot send (Send TX)
The Snapshot Send transmits all values of the current controller positions.
This allows a synchronization of the UMA25S’ settings with the connected
MIDI device.
1. Press the EDIT push button.
2. Press the SNAP TX key. The UMA25S transmits the status of all control
elements including the positions of the 8 rotary knobs, the state of the
8 push buttons, etc.
After sending the snapshot the UMA25S switches to Play Mode.
◊ In addition to the Snap TX function, there is also the Single Preset
Dump (see Chapter 5.7). Both of these functions differ in the type of
data they send. With a Snapshot Send, only the current control values
are transmitted, which are synchronized with the connected MIDI
device. A Single Preset Dump on the other hand allows the entire
content of the current preset, including the present control element
assignment, to be transmitted. This function allows you easily to
archive and exchange individual presets with other U-CONTROL users.
5.6.5 Sending a notes off message
It may happen that a Note Off message cannot be transmitted when the
connection between the UMA25S and the other devices is interrupted in which
case the notes keep on playing. This kind of situation requires you manually to
trigger the Notes Off message which mutes all connected sound modules at once.
The Notes Off message is sent to each of the 16 MIDI channels.
1. Press the EDIT push button.
2. Press the NOTES OFF key. The Notes Off message is immediately transmitted.
“NOF” appears on the display.
The device automatically switches to Play Mode.
1. Press and hold down the EDIT push button.
2. Turn the control element that you want reassigned.
3. Release the EDIT push button.
4. Use E9 to E16 to make the assignment.

U-CONTROL UMA25S User Manual
SysEx Dump ALL:
By turning the E11 rotary knob, the entire memory contents of the 16 presets
is sent as SysEx dump via MIDI. During the dump, the display flashes “Run”.
You can cancel the process by turning the E11 rotary knob until “End” appears on
the display.
In order to receive a SysEx dump, no settings on your equipment have to
be adjusted.
◊ CAUTION: If you send an “All SysEx Dump” to the U-CONTROL, the entire
memory content is directly overwritten! There is no prompt for
confirmation nor a memory safety function!
SysEx Dump SINGLE:
By turning the E12 rotary knob, the current preset is sent as SysEx dump.
During the dump, the display flashes “Run”. You can cancel the process by turning
the E12 rotary knob until “End” appears on the display.
In order to receive a SysEx dump, no settings on your equipment have to be
adjusted. If you send a single preset to the UMA25S, the data are first stored
in a temporary memory. In order to be stored permanently, save the data in a
memory slot of your choice (see Chapter 5.1.2).
MMC Frame Rate Select:
The E13 rotary knob lets you adjust the frame rate: 24, 25, 30 (in each case
“non-drop frame”) or 30d (“drop frame”). This is an important setting for the
MMC messages, which contain defined song positions (for example, Locate).
Factory Reset (restoring default presets):
Restoring default presets has already been described in Chapter 5.1.3.
1. In Global Mode, turn the E14 rotary knob until “FAC” (which stands for
Factory Reset) appears on the display.
2. Press the ENTER key once to reset to the factory settings. Then, the UMA25S
switches back to normal Play Mode.
◊ Caution! With Factory Reset, all configured data and user presets are
irreversibly deleted! To avoid an accidental deletion, save your presets
by sending a SysEx dump to your computer beforehand.
• Press the EXIT push button to cancel the Factory Reset.
Global Send Channel:
The UMA25S keyboard sends all keyboard information and control element
data, which are assigned to the GLOBAL SEND CHANNEL over the global basis
channel; the assignment takes place by selecting the MIDI channel “c00” for a
control element in Edit Mode (see Chapter 5.4). When individual keys and control
elements are assigned to other channels (1 – 16), the GLOBAL SEND CHANNEL has
no effect on these elements.
