Product Highlights
  • 30 Effects & Instruments Included
  • USB Audio Interface & Controller
  • Includes Cubase AI 5 Software (Mac & PC)
  • Plug & Play Ease of Use
  • HALion ONE Instrument with Motif Sounds

The CI2 Advanced Integration USB Studio from Steinberg is a USB audio interface and control surface with included Cubase AI 5 recording software that's compatible with both Windows and Mac computers. It enables you to easily create elaborate musical compositions on a computer using microphones or instruments like guitars, basses, keyboards and drum machines. Several software instruments and effects are included as well. The CI2 hardware and AI 5 software are deeply integrated with one another to make the recording experience for the user as easy and creative as possible.

There are two main functions that the CI2 provides; it's both a computer audio interface and a software control surface. The audio interface portion gives you two combo XLR and 1/4" inputs, ideal for microphones and line-level signals. One of the inputs can be used for plugging Hi-Z instruments (such as guitars and basses) directly into your computer, allowing you to fully tap into the included software amplifier simulators and effects. The two microphone inputs feature preamps and can provide +48V of phantom power to condenser microphones.

The control surface area really speeds up the workflow with the included Cubase AI 5 software. You can quickly scroll through menus and fully utilize the included Project Assistant software. The Project Assistant is loaded with many kinds of templates to suit different project styles. The templates will automatically set-up a session with tracks, effects, input and output routings, etc. The AI Knob in the control section will automatically map itself to any control parameter that you mouse-over in Cubase, saving an incredible amount of time and keeping the creative juices flowing.

    Comments about Steinberg CI2 Advanced Integration USB Studio - USB Audio Interface & Controller:

    I bought this product for a small home studio. I was already using Cubase 5 but was running it with a regular Creative SB sound card, so this was a nice upgrade. The integration with Cubase was pretty seamless and the AI knob looks like it may prove useful.
