Frank Simmerlein, Steinberg's marketing director, told us, "Following the recent successful release of Cubase 6 and Cubase Artist 6, we at Steinberg would now like to offer our customers a very attractive limited bundle that offers immediate access to the world of digital music production." Here's the rest of what Steinberg has to say...
Based on highly acclaimed technologies and the award-winning Steinberg audio engine, Cubase Artist 6 features a wealth of effects and VST instruments, such as the new VST Amp Rack plug-in with exhilarating amp emulations and the HALion Sonic SE workstation with over 550 quality sounds. The take-comping system, its commendable user interface and Windows/Mac 64-bit support make Cubase Artist 6 the perfect choice for talented newcomers and seasoned musicians alike.
Powered entirely via USB, the CI2+ offers a professional digital audio recording standard with 24-bit resolution and a sampling rate of 48 kHz. Both its two microphone inputs consist of balanced XLR/jack combo connectors and high-quality microphone preamps with onboard +48 V phantom power. The dedicated high-impedance switch on the first input channel allow for connecting an electric guitar or bass directly with the CI2+. The ultra-precision AI Knob controls virtually all main functions of Cubase and facilitates browsing through the Project Assistant for easy project setup, while its dedicated transport push-buttons control playback and recording.
By packaging Cubase Artist 6 and CI2+ together, Steinberg customers now receive an all-in-one Advanced Integration system for recording and editing vocals and instruments on any computer as long as stocks last.
