    Used a few years, I could compare with Tapco by Mackie Link.USB interface in the same range ... it was incomparable! Mackie mic preamps the high dynamic reserves are exceptional and are well above those of this small Steinberg CI2!
    No, I do not have that choice.

    Stylish!!

    Steinberg CI2Published on 02/06/13 at 01:20
    The Steinberg CI2 is a USB audio interface that has a different look to it. It is probably one of the more stylish portable interfaces that I have ever seen. This interface connects to my laptop via USB connection and it is ready to work with Cubase AI. It can be used on a Mac or a PC with almost any Mac OSX and Windows XP or Windows Vista. The mic preamps in the CI2 are very good; they have 48 volt phantom power and no matter where you use this interface at you can get some really good quality recordings with some of the most awkward recording environments.

The mic preamps in the CI2 are very good; they have 48 volt phantom power and no matter where you use this interface at you can get some really good quality recordings with some of the most awkward recording environments.

    UTILIZATION

    Setting this interface up was quick and easy, after you install the drivers your Cubase will be ready to find this interface. The AI knob on this interface is the highlight feature about it. It will work with your standard computer mouse to bring the flexibility any user on any skill level could ever need.

    GETTING STARTED

    Outside of the sound you can get when recording with this interface, I really do love the look of it. It is a two tone color being Grey on one side and “off white” on the other side where the AI wheel is. All of the knobs/wheel seemed to be very well made. This is the type of interface I love to have around when I am on the go with my laptop because it just looks so nice when I pull it out and others see it. It really doesn’t even look like an interface at all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This interface takes up virtually no space at all and it looks and sounds great. There is nothing to lose with this interface. The CI2 is probably the piece of equipment that I take with me almost everywhere now because it has never let me down. It can work with Mac’s and PC’s and it is plug and play ready. It even comes with some good FX’s and Plug ins through Cubase. This is great for beginners and Cubase vets!

    ◦ What characteristics have motivated your choice?

    The fact that there is a map above and Cubase Steinberg could only be decreased latency. Map seems more solid. In addition there is the famous AI Knob which allows to control provides Cubase AI 5.

    I bought the base register and learn Cubase. Today I used to record all kinds of groups (rock, pop, electronica, jazz, choral ,...)

    I own a Toshiba Satellite laptop Dual Core 4G, purchased primarily for making music
    ◦ With what instruments or systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you are using and how connections?

    I plug into USB (no choice). I record all sorts of instruments (guitars, bass, vocals, sometimes copper ,...) using preamp, sometimes live and hack the sound on Cubase.


    UTILIZATION

    The card has the phono knob to the master output, both input jack / XLR possible and barnacle DAW. There is also a 48V power supply (although useful for some studio microphone) and a button to allow mono output.

    You can record 2 instruments mono simultanéee in 2 different tracks or a stereo instrument.

    Cubase AI 5 is great (nothing to do with 4). After 4 months of use intenssive with no limit (even on projects of 40 tracks including twenty VST).

    Latency is rare, negligible or nonexistent. This now is that watching a DVD on the computer, itunes and Utorrent lit there is a considerable lag but hey nothing very surprising. basically if you play music in Cubase, I suggest you tell your computer to do only ca.

    Regarding the AI ​​Knob I used it a little early (to send the recording to the foot using a footswitch), but even if it can be very useful for some, I never used .

    GETTING STARTED

    Cubase AI 5 (rovide with) instalation is quite simple although a bit long in my memory (an hour before they started playing). The search for security keys is a bit laborious but good for a novice it gets there anyway.

    The problem with Cubase is at synchronization interfaces noon (I have a master keyboard and AC was a real pain to do so by recognizing cubase).

    A huge tip: do not run Cubase as a kakou no experience, reading the tutorial (very well done) is mandatory for all novices. It takes about 2 days of testing before you embark on your own projects;

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 4 months, bought mainly because I'd just buy a PC to get into the WAM for real.
    At the sound card, I tried some thing very average or low end like low-end M-Audio or Behringer and each time, latency and quality problem was at the appointment.
    In software after having tried Ableton Live and have quickly given up, I had turned to such audacity free by exploiting fully this very limited piece of software for mixing and recording as you can imagine. Cubase short changed my life creatively. there is a before and after Cubase at my sound and my work ergonomics.
    € 200 for a sound card may seem expensive but ca vien Cubase dépence quickly catch up. A real plus. Especially after the reviews that the LE version is no longer considered a real demo version for 200 € and can not find a sound card with another that Cubase LE. Version Number 5 is a real version and is the highlight of this sound card.

    In short the quality / price is more than good; My only regret today because I am saving groups, a multitrack sound cards have had the welcome but is it really worthwhile to pay double for the final version have Cubase LE?? So given my budget I probably would do the choosing;
