Controller 1.1 update with dimming switch, other new functions and additional small enhancements 23/03/12
Steinberg has announced a software update to version 1.1 for its CMC controllers.
The CMC set of controllers comprise six units: the CMC-CH channel controller, CMC-FD fader controller, CMC-QC quick control unit, the CMC-PD pad controller, the CMC-TP transport controller and the CMC-AI controller with Advanced Integration capability. Steinberg says that the controllers perfectly complement the CC121 remote control unit.
Stefan Schreiber, Steinberg's product marketing manager for hardware, told Sonic State, "We've listened carefully to customer demands and have therefore implemented new and improved functionality to our CMC controller range"
With the new LED dimming option, the button illumination on all CMC units can now be switched on and off for improved visibility while using the controllers in dimmed studios and stages. Other features and enhancements include new Key Repeat capability on the CMC-CH, CMC-FD and CMC-QC controllers that allows users to move sequentially through channels with ease. In addition, the CMC-CH now provides mute, solo, monitor and record-enable control for all tracks inside folder tracks while the CMC-CH and CMC-FD boast a wider detection range of their touch-control sensitivity.
