Advanced Integration USB Studio

With the Steinberg CI2, hardware most skillfully meets software by combining the best of two worlds with the Steinberg CI2 Advanced Integration USB studio and Cubase AI 5, the dedicated version of Cubase 5. As the name implies, the CI2 houses two major functions. There’s the two-channel XLR combo interface equipped with two sophisticated microphone preamps and phantom power, one HI-Z for direct guitar input and a footswitch connector for Interactive Recording. This is seconded by the controller section featuring the innovative AI Knob that provides intuitive control due to seamless integration into Cubase. You now have all the tools in a single box to help you with whatever recording and production project you may have in mind.

Features of the Steinberg CI2

  • A no-worry full-system solution to record music at an unbeatable price point
  • Easy to use with the Project Assistant — especially for beginners
  • Browse functionality helps and assists throughout the project
  • Interactive recording functionality allows hands-free recording with the optional footswitch and the optional mic stand adapter
  • Advanced Integration system: totally integrated tactile control of the Steinberg Cubase range of production systems, maintaining complete focus on the project
  • Ultra-precision AI controller knob: “point and control” support: controls any Cubase, FX or VSTi parameter using mouse-pointer selection for exhilarating speed
  • AI-ready LED: when the LED lights up, the CI2 is ready to go! Instant plug and play — no additional setup or parameter assigning required
  • Two high-quality mic preamps with +48V phantom power with a fully USB-powered audio interface giving total freedom of mobile recording elaborate
  • Outstanding engineering and component quality: precision components, manufactured by Yamaha to exacting standards
  • Mac and PC compatible: cross-platform support for Cubase on Mac OS X, Windows XP and Windows Vista

Setups of the Steinberg CI2

  • Desktop home recording studio - The CI2 provides all the necessary inputs and outputs to record music at home or in a personal project studio. Not only is it possible to record two individual signals at once, such as vocals and guitar, but by operating Cubase with the optional footswitch connected to the CI2, your hands are absolutely free to make music. And with true +48V phantom power, you can also use high-end large diaphragm condenser mics for studio-quality sound.
  • Mobile stereo live recording - Making a high-quality stereo live recording only requires a laptop, two top-notch mics and the CI2. And since the CI2 is fully USB-powered including its two +48V phantom-powered mic preamps, there’s really no need for an external power supply. The provided footswitch connector allows you to control the recording functions via an optional footswitch, operating the system during the stereo live recording of the band’s next gig, the choir’s performance or orchestra’s concert.
  • Mobile band live recording - To make a professional sounding demo you simply have to connect the CI2 to the mixer desk available in the rehearsal room or live event and record in 24-bit/48-kHz stereo quality. With the included high-end effects of Cubase AI 5, you then can edit the recording later on, the CI2’s AI Knob providing full control of any mixing and plug-in parameters within Cubase.

Applications of the Steinberg CI2

  • Easily record a guitar using Cubase AI 5 and CI2 - One way of using both the CI2 USB studio and Cubase AI 5 is to record a guitar with “Interactive Recording”, which lets you record the guitar performance in just a few steps.
    • Connect the guitar to input 1 of the CI2 unit, press the HI-Z button and adjust the input gain.
    • Launch Cubase AI 5 and open the Project Template window using the AI Knob.
    • Select a template for recording the guitar.
    • Now simply push the Action Pad (or the optional footswitch) to start recording, using the hand-free recording feature.
  • After recording, smart editing with AI Knob - Another way to produce music is the editing of music with the unique AI Knob.
    • Simply move the mouse over any parameter of a plug-in, mixer or anything else in Cubase and easily adjust the value by turning the AI Knob.
    • To access the Browse mode, press the AI Knob and choose from a vast number of sounds and effects by turning and pushing the AI Knob.

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
