Cubase Gets Gestural Control

Cubase IC Air uses LeapMotion or depth cameras      19/11/13

Minority Report has a lot to answer for, who knew we needed gesture control in our lives before that?

But gesture control is the new touch, with Leap Motion - and Geert Bevins Geco MIDI control app we're starting to see more coming on stream.

Steinberg are the latest to offer gesture control with Cubase IC Air which allows users of Cubase 7 or Cubase Artist 7, together with a Leap Motion Controller or Intel systems powered by the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK, to control the DAW with the command of gestures.

Cubase iC Air adds a control panel within Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7, which gives visual feedback of your hand gestures which are read by the hardware used (Leap Motion etc). You can access pre-configured gestural commands allow the user to perform transport controls, such as start, stop, forward and rewind, to jump to the next or previous track, to audition through sections of audio and zoom in and out the arrangement.

By implementing a virtual version of Steinberg's AI Knob, users are also able to control many other parameters of Cubase as well as VST 2.4 and VST 3 plug-ins through Cubase iC Air.

Perhaps we'll start to see this happening on stage-  I'm thinking JMJ perhaps, if he used Cubase that is.

Cubase iC Air is a freely downloadable component, available from the Steinberg website.
