News Steinberg CI2

Steinberg announced the CI2 Advanced Integration USB Studio offering both recording and controller features with the included Cubase AI 5 and Advanced Integration technology to offer a production solution for newcomers and mobile production environments.

The CI2 USB audio interface features two mic preamps with XLR/TRS combo connectors and 48v phantom power as well as a Hi-Z input, designed to allow connection to any audio signal, including large diaphragm microphones, guitars, basses and line inputs.

Designed in cooperation with and built by Yamaha, CI2 also offers the AI Knob controller, which assumes control of any parameter by simply hovering over it with the mouse. Another example of the Advanced Integration technology is the “Cubase Ready LED”, indicating that Cubase is connected and the system is ready to use.

CI2 also features workflow features designed to make the system very easy to use. The AI Knob controller becomes a sound browser with a push, and is integrated into browser windows in Cubase to find the right instrument sound or loop more quickly by scrolling through and (de)selecting entries in the sound browser windows, Steinberg explains. Interactive Recording mode uses the optionally available footswitch for hands-free recording, ideal for guitarists and vocalists recording their own performances.

The included Cubase AI 5 is a streamlined version of Steinberg’s Cubase 5. Cubase AI 5 offers up to 48 audio tracks, 64 MIDI tracks, a range of audio and MIDI plug-ins including a new version of the AmpSimulator plug-in for guitarists, virtual instruments, editing features, automation and more. As with all Cubase and Steinberg hardware products, CI2 supports both Windows and Mac OS X.

Pricing & Availability
CI2 costs €229.00/£191.00 and will ship to Steinberg resellers worldwide from the end of September 2009.
