A Stand Alone ControllerThe CMD modules work well as standalone controllers for a wide range of DJ and production software. Whether you’re a DJ, producer, recording engineer, or hobbyist, CMD controllers make getting a hand on your software easy and affordable. They’re big enough to be taken seriously, but small enough to fit easily into a backpack or messenger bag. And because they’re modular, there’s always room to grow if you decide you want or need even more control over your software.
Using Multiple ModulesThis is where the real power of the CMD controllers becomes clear. As a Serato ScratchLive user, you might only be interested in the DV-1. But what if you want to use Bridge to incorporate Ableton Live into your setup? Easy! Just add an LC-1 next to your DV-1 and you’re all set. Or what if you want to use a traditional DJ mixer, but still want MIDI control for Traktor’s decks and effects? No problem, use a PL-1 and DV-1 together. Want to use Ableton Live exclusively? Get an MM-1 and LC-1 and you have control over 4 channels in Live. The possibilities are endless.
CMD MM-1 Mixer Control ModuleThis is where it starts if you want to create a multi-module controller. The MM-1 emulates the experience of a 4-channel DJ mixer, with high quality professional faders, output metering, channel cue selection, 4-band EQs, and master/cue control. These features are laid out just as they would be on a traditional DJ mixer, so you instantly feel comfortable.
But since the MM-1 is also a powerful MIDI controller, we kicked it up a notch and included support for scrolling through your song library (or scenes in Ableton Live) and navigating your file system. Since all buttons and encoder rings respond to MIDI feedback, you’ll always know at a glance when something changes in your software.
So, it’s a great mixer-controller – but what makes it a good backbone for a multi-module MIDI controller? The lack of available USB ports is a common problem for many DJs, so we incorporated a powered 4-port Multi-TT hub into the MM-1. It’s USB 2.0 compatible, so feel free to use it not only for other MIDI controllers, but also for hard drives, audio interfaces, or even gooseneck lamps. And since it’s a Multi-TT USB hub, you get full speed from each port. You never have to worry about finding the right powered USB hub for your DJ or production work – we took care of that for you.
Whether you’re using it in standalone mode or as the center of a custom CMD setup, the MM-1 provides high quality, flexible MIDI control at a price that makes it an easy addition to your current setup.

"Full Behringer CMD MM-1, PL-1 & DC-1 Review: Behringer’s collection of feature-packed stand-alone modular controllers promise extensive control over your DJ software at an affordable price, bringing choice, flexibility and portability to any set-up."
"Want a compelling 4-deck controller for under $400? Get an MM-1 and two PL-1s, and then remap them so they do all the crazy stuff you want them to do, and then share them with the internet so others can take advantage of them. The true power of these controllers does not lie in the provided mappings and the options on the silk screen, but instead in the open endedness of them, and the ability to lock them together to develop your own personal workflow."
"We have been covering the Behringer brand of DJ controllers which all fit under the moniker of CMD. The demand from those of you out there to want to know everything about these affordable MIDI controllers has prompted us to give you as much information as possible. We also have all of them in our possession and are surprised each and every time we grab a new controller and start playing with the controls. While our last two reviews were of the all in one controllers, the CMD Studio 4a and the CMD Micro, we decided to dive into the slimmer and more function-specific modular controllers in the CMD line."
"Earlier today at NAMM 2012, we got a chance to take a quick look at Behringer’s brand new modular CMD series of controllers, which aim to deliver a range of control options at the lowest price. Check out one of the first videos of the units after the jump and learn why these five controllers are a break from the norm that many expect from Behringer DJ. "
