    Stability and shine

    Steinberg CI1Published on 10/25/13 at 07:07
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Need a small sound card, this model suited to the time. Yamaha manufacture, no complaints.

    UTILIZATION

    In Cubase 5 64-bit, really perfect integration (it would be a world ...). Where it is strong, it is never bugged in 2 years of use. Not once.
    Drivers updated regularly.

    GETTING STARTED

    RAS

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, this is the ideal card for a small set of pre prod for example.
    She fills her role and is a rock-solid stability.

    Surprising

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I needed a portable card, self-powered with phantom power. She was sold secondhand for 50 €.

    I tried it on Mac OS X and Windows 8

    Input / Output G+ D or two inputs, one mono HiZ equipped with XLR / Jack combo (for both).

    Unfortunately, one of my cards Jack did not want to leave, so I broke one of the inputs that are no longer usable in XLR. Okay, I did used for microphones.

    UTILIZATION

    Whether with Logic, Cubase it is very stable and a good latency + / - 9 ms. On Windows I had some small problems with the frequency that does not match Cakewalk Sonnar X2. Also, as is always the case for the USB devices, the latency is higher under Windows. Difficult to go below 15ms (I / …

    GETTING STARTED

    Easy to install and use immediately, the settings are succinct. No Mac OS X and resolution / frequency under Windows.

    Very easy to use and seems robust (if not the XLR / Jack combo).

    OVERALL OPINION

    A few days of intensive use enough to give a good idea of ​​the product. Apart from the problem of connectors, the interface is very good, especially for the price.

    Quality mic preamp and guitar input are good.

    The sound quality is very good (for the price).

    It is an excellent companion for mobile music and more.

    She is very friendly and pleasant to use.

    In short, a good bill for a ridiculously low price.

    Put it in your laptop bag and take it with you

    Steinberg CI1Published on 03/12/13 at 14:26
    The CI1 has 2 inputs and 2 output types, there are 2 preamps built into it too and they are very warm and quiet for this to be a 100 dollar interface. I recommend anyone who does not have a lot of money to spend, go out and purchase this interface because it is a great starting point into the world of recording and getting the best possible quality for the price at your home studio. It can be used on a Mac and a PC computer and it comes with Wavelab LE and Sequel LE.

    UTILIZATION

    Setting it up in the DAW that comes with it is very simple and easy. The manual also explains everything too, I have not tried to use this interface in other programs but I know for a fact it works great …

    UTILIZATION

    Setting it up in the DAW that comes with it is very simple and easy. The manual also explains everything too, I have not tried to use this interface in other programs but I know for a fact it works great with the included one. The DAW that comes with it s like the watered down version of Cubase and this is why I say it is a great starting point because it will teach you the basics of recording and working with your audio files. You will need to eventually upgrade to something more in depth like the full version of Cubase sooner or later.

    GETTING STARTED

    This interface is very small, and is pretty well built for the price. It gets all of its power from your USB (2.0) port and can be tucked away in your laptop bag and taken virtually anywhere. The two preamps are good for the price. They do color the sound a little bit though but that is to be expected in this price range. No matter which microphone you use, you will notice that it is not as clean as it should be though.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This interface is affordable and solid. You cannot expect to get crisp recordings out of it but you will get some usable demo’s out of it and eventually will need to upgrade.

    Steinberg wakes up!

    Hello to all

    Actually I did not choose this card originally, I took a presonus AudioBox but being very dissatisfied with my purchase, I decided to return it to the store and change.
    At Milonga (gear music retailer) the seller offered me this sound card to be patient (she had just arrived).
    € 109, headphone jack and monitor available (which I looked for above all) and buttons pretty well placed to tell the truth, I agree to take it

    UTILIZATION

    I use it mainly for Home Studio (with monitor and headphones).
    I create primarily electronic music so I use alot of VST which suits me perfectly.

    I create primarily electronic music so I use alot of VST which suits me perfectly.
    Moreover during installation we can see that this card works under the regime Yamaha, this is not negligable

    GETTING STARTED

    Arriving at home, the connection and installation are done in minutes without any problems (compared to the AudioBox worth € 170 ...) so pretty happy!

    Just change the principal sound card and voila!

    I work on Windows XP (SP3) and Ableton Live Sound

    OVERALL OPINION

    The sound appears a little less clean than the presonus, but anyway good for the price ...
    The installation and its connection to everyone's door, very easy and fast.
    Steinberg is effective this time!

    But I am thinking to exchange it in the store for the upper range that offers good features, but it is true that for my first day of use I am very satisfied.

    Regards
    Yo '

    2 input, XLR / jack, headphone monitor output and phantom power, blah blah finally the basis.

    I use it to record bass, vocals. with a MacBook Pro and two AT2020

    UTILIZATION

    Interface is really clear and well presented. I preferred to have the inputs in the front .. Finally, this is a question of taste;)
    I use it with logic pro. Little or no lag for me!

    Thus 2 recordable tracks simultaneously.

    The Preamps are more than adequate for the price range!

    I find the sound a bit cold, something bothers me ... at the conversion level probably
    Even with a good preamp and better pickups, I am knit picking :)

    OVERALL OPINION
