Steinberg CC121 Advanced Integration Controller for Cubase
FULLY MIRRORED FUNCTIONALITY
AI KNOB - REVOLUTIONARY ADVANCED INTEGRATION CONTROLLER
Perhaps the most innovative area of CC121 is the revolutionary AI Knob, a "point and control" precision controller. Rather than attempting to replace traditional mouse pointing devices, the AI Knob harnesses the flexibility of a computer mouse to offer unprecedented speed when editing parameters and adjusting settings. The computer mouse is simply moved over the parameter, which is then automatically placed under full precision control through the AI Knob, with no need to make any additional settings in Cubase, any additional software module or on the interface itself. The parameter can be locked to the AI Knob to retain control when the mouse is moved elsewhere onscreen.
DEDICATED CUBASE CONTROLSThe unique AI Knob is paired with a range of dedicated, high quality hardware controls over a huge range of Cubase transport, channel and EQ features. High quality controller switches and rotary knobs dedicated to specific functions mean no tedious stepping through parameters for control. Color coding that mirrors the Cubase buttons further supports easy navigation with CC121.
CHANNEL SECTIONThe CC121 is specifically designed for Cubase software, providing tremendous efficiency and speed in your workflow. CC121 offers dedicated control of Cubase channel settings including solo/mute, record arm, automation read/write as well as pan — all highlighted in the same color as the graphic control in Cubase.
One of the most important features on CC121 is the motorized 100mm touch-sensitive fader. This top-quality component has an absolutely first-class feel normally only found on hardware mixing consoles costing many times more This fader gives precision tactile control over volume settings for the selected track or group.Another advantage of the very tight integration with Cubase comes in the form of the dedicated buttons to open both the VST Channel Settings and selected VST Instrument Track for detailed editing using the AI Knob and mouse.
TRANSPORT SECTIONThe transport section of Cubase can be controlled directly from the CC121, with a compact and easy-to-use transport section that mirrors the Cubase transport bar.
A unique feature of CC121 is the advanced Cubase Channel EQ in hardware form. Twelve dedicated rotary encoders offer precision control of the Cubase Channel EQ. Q-factor, Frequency and Gain all have their own rotary encoder for each band. Additional buttons provide control of the bypass switch for the EQ in the selected track, as well as selection of the EQ type. As with all the dedicated controls, the EQ section on the CC121 has been engineered to offer the best possible controller integration into the Cubase production environment, speeding up workflow and boosting creativity.
