|Steinberg CI2+ Solusi untuk para pemula untuk Home Recording|

Before I tell you what I think of the Steinberg CI2+, let me explain how this post came about. Untill a few months ago I had my modest home studio set up with lots of software and audio through a Echo Mia pci soundcard. Lovely, never had any problems with it and the sound quality was great. But my old pc was running old and became... outdated, plus a month ago it even completely crashed. Plans for the purchase of a new system existed but now I was forced to act upon those plans!
Before I decided on the final
specs for a new system I bought a new HP laptop as well. Just to have a
backup computer if any new system would give me trouble in the future
and so I could take my time deciding what my new system should be. My
pc system became a I7 (8 core) running Windows 7 (64 bits).
As I found out many new pc systems don't have pci slots anymore, so my
trustworthy Echo Mia became useless overnight. A shame but that's
technologic advancement for you. So I decided to go for a USB audio
interface. Being a Cubase user for many years I looked into the
recently released CI-series from Steinberg. After some research my
decision was to buy the top model, the CI2+ audio interface.
you how the audio/specs hold up in real life would be boring as most
of the new (USB) audio interfaces from different manufacturers have
almost the same specifications. And I am sure they will deliver these
specifications without any problems.
The control section has a big AI-knob
surrounded by several push buttons (play/stop, record, previous, next
and action pad). This is a multifunction knob with two modes, Normal or
Browse. Basically with this knob and the push buttons you can control
your Cubase. It replaces several mouse functions if wanted. I can see
this being very usefull if you want to record some guitar tracks away
from your computer for example. Pushing the button when you are working
with(in) Cubase it can take over the browser function. For example if
your are browsing for sounds or presets. Also simply move the mouse
over any parameter of a plug-in, mixer or anything else in Cubase and
you can easily adjust the value by turning the AI Knob.
extra functions of this audio interface are only linked with
Steinberg's own DAW, Cubase. But if you are looking for just an audio
interface you can of course hook it up to any PC or MAC system. But then
again most DAW manufacturers have their own (dedicated) hardware these
days. I personally am a year-long Cubase user so this CI2+ fits my
Pro's and Con's
