BMF: Houston, We Don't Have a Problem

New Control Surface from Steinberg Ships      17/07/01
New Control Surface from Steinberg Ships

We were pretty impressed with the Houston Control Surface we saw at the show. The full-size faders and numerous function specific knobs and buttons really made the control of Cubase a breeze. It's very well implemented and integrates seamlessly with the on-screen functions with changes mirrored on-screen. I can see people really finding it hard to go back to the mouse. It's a shame (for me) that only Steinberg software (Cubase/Nuendo) is supported - me being a Logic user -DOH! The unit communicates with the host computer via midi or USB. The good news for all you fader freaks is that the Houston System is now shipping and will soon be available at your local store. Pricing in the UK is £999 (+/-$1400) and it's shipping now.
