Steinberg's UR22 audio interface is included in both packs
Steinberg, MXL, MOGAMI, and Yamaha have announced the release of two new recording packs that offer musicians, engineers and producers all of the brands in one box: the Cubase Recording Pack and the UR22 Recording Pack. Here's their press release:
The Cubase Recording Pack comes with Cubase 7* and the UR22 audio interface from Steinberg, along with an MXL1022 condenser microphone, MXL-57 shock mount and a Mogami 10' XLR-XLR cable. The Cubase Recording Pack also includes a pair of Yamaha RH5MA headphones – the final component in this quality instant recording studio solution.
The second bundle, the hardware-oriented UR22 Recording Pack, features the UR22, an MXL1022 condenser microphone, an MXL-57 shock mount and a Mogami 10' XLR-XLR cable. The UR22 Recording Pack is aimed at first time audio interface users who seek a high quality solution featuring trustworthy brands.
One of the most popular Digital Audio Workstations in the world, Cubase 7 features the new MixConsole, enhanced workflow options and a new Channel Strip that offers epic pro-console sound. The rock-solid UR22 USB 2.0 audio interface includes two D-PRE preamps and 192 kHz support, providing professional-grade sound in a portable package.
The MXL1022 large diaphragm condenser microphone captures vocals and instruments in crisp detail. It features an FET preamp with balanced output and wide frequency response to pick up a broad range of sound, from vocals to a wide variety of instruments. The microphone is internally wired with world-class Mogami cable for precise recordings and, when placed into the MXL-57 shock mount, ensures professional performance.
The 10' XLR-XLR Cable from Mogami, the largest selling cable brand for major recording facilities, delivers the purest recordings. Each cable is made from Mogami's 2552 microphone cable with signature Mogami 100 percent spiral coverage for extremely low noise. The cable is finished off with high quality gold-contact XLR connectors.
Yamaha RH5MA headphones, which provide accurate sound reproduction, represent an excellent choice for pro studio monitoring. Featuring a semi-closed design, they come with 1/4" and 1/8" inch jacks along with an eight-foot long cable. Frequency response is 20 Hz to 20 kHz and the impedance is 32 ohms.
"MXL and MOGAMI are proud to be bundled with products by two well-respected names in music recording – Steinberg and Yamaha," said MXL Director of Sales and Marketing Perry Goldstein. "These bundles are compilations of four excellent brands that will result in a great experience for the end user."
Steinberg North America Director Alan Macpherson said that "Having such renowned brands as MXL, Mogami and Yamaha bundled with Steinberg's most popular products is inspiring. With only the best brands included, there is a clearly defined quality difference for both professional and entry level end users."
