Steinberg CI1 & CI2+
Steinberg announced the release of two new CI interfaces: CI1 and CI2+. Juxtaposing last year’s released CI2, all three portable units make up the CI series.
Both CI1 and CI2+ are USB-powered audio interfaces, housing two combo connectors, phantom power and allowing for high-impedance input.
CI2+ also holds the same inputs, with balanced XLR/TRS combo connectors, microphone preamps, onboard +48 V phantom power and switchable Hi-Z. In addition to the CI1, however, the CI2+ also features the AI Knob, Action Pad and additional transport controls for control over main functions within Cubase Essential. With its additional content material, guitar amp simulators and other effects plus VST instruments.
While the entry-level CI1 comes bundled with the Sequel LE sequencer and WaveLab LE 7 audio editing application, CI2+ is an advanced interface, combining Advanced Integration control capability with the included Cubase Essential 5 music production system.
Pricing & Availability
Both CI1 and CI2+ will soon be available for EUR 119*/GBP 101* and EUR 339*/GBP 289*, respectively.
* Suggested Retail Price. Prices may be subject to regional variations.
