The CI1 from Steinberg combines a USB powered audio interface with a software package that together provide great possibilities to create, record, edit and produce your own music and audio material. With its intuitive music creation tools and the included Sequel LE version you have all you need to create songs. Additionally, the CI1 along with the light editions of Sequel and WaveLab present the ideal tool kit for editors and podcasters looking to record speech, publish podcasts and produce audio books.
On the hardware side, the CI1's two-channel inputs with +48V phantom power and high-quality microphone preamps provide all capabilities necessary to connect any dynamic or condenser microphone. Being fully USB-powered, it's no problem to record music whenever and wherever without having to find a mains outlet - the user can simply plug the CI1 into a notebook, connect a microphone or guitar, and start jamming on the spot.
Sequel LE delivers a selection of quality loops, ready-to play instrument sounds, effects and the same state of-the-art Steinberg audio engine found in Cubase and Nuendo. WaveLab LE 7 offers a suite of audio editing tools tailored to the needs of musicians, small recording environments and podcast authors. The podcast tool combines basic editing and mastering capabilities with full internet audio publishing features, creating a unique one-stop application for recording, editing right through to online publication via podcast.
