Steinberg Releases CI1 and CI2+ Interfaces
Steinberg has announced the release of two new USB audio interfaces, CI1 and CI2+. Together with last year's released CI2, all three portable units make up the CI series.
They offer an affordable product range combining outstanding engineering quality with intuitive handling and a seamless integration with the included Steinberg software.
Both CI1 and CI2+ are USB-powered audio interfaces with two high-quality microphone and line channels, comprising balanced XLR/TRS combo connectors with great sounding microphone preamps.
In addition the units have phantom power and HI-Z switching on the first channel for direct electric guitar input.
The entry-level CI1 offers ideal tools for creating and recording music as well as easy-to-use podcasting functionality.
CI1?s software bundle consists of Sequel LE and WaveLab LE.
Sequel LE is designed for first-time computer music enthusiasts looking to record and create their music with ease.
WaveLab LE provides audio editing, mastering and full internet audio publishing features.
Leading the CI series of interface controllers, CI2+ delivers additional controller functionality alongside Cubase Essential 5, a dedicated version of Steinberg?s renowned Cubase music production system.
Featuring the AI Knob, Action Pad and dedicated transport controls, the user gains absolute control over virtually all main functions within Cubase Essential 5.
With its additional content material, great effects plus versatile VST instruments, Cubase Essential 5 delivers the ultimate software to go with the grandest of CI interfaces.
CI1 or CI2+, each in its own right covers a broad range of applications, be it in the studio, rehearsal room or on the go, and is ideal for hobby musicians, guitarists, singers and electronic music producers alike.
Both audio interfaces will be available during August.Posted on 6 Jul 2010 14:33 to category : Instruments News
