Steinberg has unveiled a hardware/software bundle. The CI2+ Production Kit combines the CI2+ audio interface with the music production software Cubase AI 6 and the audio editing suite WaveLab LE 7. Here's what Steinberg has to say...
Leading the CI series, the CI2+ unit is interface and controller in one.

The controller section features the innovative AI Knob and dedicated transport buttons that make your recording and editing session an out-of-the-box experience. The power supply via USB makes this compact interface the ideal choice for recordings at home, in the rehearsal room or wherever desired.
And it doesn't stop here: the CI2+ Production Kit comes with Cubase AI 6, a streamlined version of the most popular DAW on the market today, plus WaveLab LE 7, a light version of the world's standard in mastering software.
