Control the Quick Control knobs and EQ of a selected channel in Cubase or Nuendo.
Small in size but big in value, the USB-powered Steinberg CMC-QC Quick Controller provides precise tactile control over virtually any effect, EQ and performance parameter within Cubase. With this intuitive micro controller you can cut and boost frequencies with utmost precision, tweak multiple effect parameters at once, remote-control your favorite functions and simply set yourself free from the unmusical duo of mouse and keyboard.
The CMC-QC unit houses 13 illuminated buttons and eight rotary encoders with green LED lights that change their lighting intensity according to the set position. To ensure a maximum of flexibility, the controller comes with three dedicated working modes â EQ, Quick Control and MIDI. Once in the EQ mode, the rotary encoders mirror the Cubase Channel EQ controls to give you accurate control over the frequency, gain and bandwidth levels. Being the perfect choice for tweak freaks and control enthusiasts, the QC mode brings the powerful Cubase Quick Controls to your fingertips, including their potential to create off-the-beaten-track effects and precise automation data. The assignment is as fast as it gets: choose a parameter within Cubase, push the f/Q Learn button and turn the desired encoder â thatâs it. Plus, the versatile MIDI mode turns the CMC QC into a freely configurable MIDI controller to provide addtitional creative headroom.
Best of all, by using the included CMC-QC Editor software you can conveniently edit the MIDI control change parameters via a slick graphical interface. Parameter values are displayed underneath the respective encoders and can be entered manually.
So, whether you are looking for a smart add-on controller for your master keyboard, a versatile live performance tool or a time-saving studio companion, the CMC-QC is always the right choice.
Introducing the CMC series
The CMC series is made up of six USB-powered controllers that can be individually combined to form a custom-made Cubase control desk. Whether beat creation, transport control, editing or multi-track mixing, there is the perfect model for every task. Each of the six slim-sized units is unique in its own way and features a dedicated set of illuminated rotary encoders, touch faders or pads â each of them designed to take hands-on control of a specific section in Cubase. Due to the adoption of Cubaseâs icons and color scheme, users will instantly feel at home with the workflow. Take control, keep focused and be flexible â the CMC series will tremendously speed up your recording, editing and mixing workflow no matter if you are in the studio or on the go.
* Six unique micro controllers perfectly tailored to Cubase users
* Modular approach allows for flexible expansion
* Most seamless Cubase integration ever seen
* Innovative technology including high-resolution touch fader
* Portable due to compact design and USB power
CMC stands for the worldâs first truly integrated, modular controller system. Made up of six unique units, each designed for a dedicated purpose, the CMC micro controllers can be individually combined to form a personal Cubase control desk â with up to nine CMC units. With the included joint plate, it is a straightforward matter to fix several CMC units. Plus, you can even combine the PD and FD models with Steinbergâs CC121 Advanced Integration controller, leaving no control request unanswered. For the first time ever, it is possible to individually design a personal controller system that exactly fits your needs. You can stack up to nine CMC units to form your individual control solution
Highly responsive touch controller with LED-based visual feedback
The CMC-FD (#H77578), CMC-CH (#H77575) and CMC-TP (#H77577) controllers introduce a newly developed, high-precision touch device that offers a whole new approach to DAW control. While the CMC-FD and CMC-CH house a high-precision touch fader with a resolution of up to 1,024 steps and integrated LED lights, the CMC-TP comes with a multi-functional touch slider. The ultra-high resolution, integrated LED lights for visual feedback and dedicated working modes make this innovative control solution a smart and intuitive addition to any studio and live performance setup.
Smart and intuitive: the AI Knob
First introduced with Steinbergâs CC121 Advanced Integration Controller, the revolutionary AI Knob is an exceptionally helpful âpoint and controlâ knob. Rather than attempting to replace traditional mouse pointing devices, the AI Knob harnesses the flexibility of a computer mouse to offer unprecedented speed when editing parameters and adjusting settings. The computer mouse is simply moved over the parameter, which is then automatically placed under full precision control through the AI Knob, with no need to make any additional settings in Cubase, any additional software module or on the interface itself.
Visual feedback galore
The CMC-QC (#H77576) and CMC-CH units house convenient rotary encoders with green LED lights. The LED brightness varies according to the encoder position: the farther from the center, the brighter the LED. And also the CMC-PD (#H77579) features 16 highly responsive rubber pads with LED-based background lights. Best of all, the lights change colors depending on the velocity level â from green to orange over to red.
Slick and mobile
Small in size but big in value, the CMC series are your perfect partner on the road. The units are small enough to fit in your pocket, on a master keyboard or wherever desired. Since the CMC units are powered via USB, you don't need any additional power supply. And with a unique level of handling quality, the CMC series is suited for both crowded live venues and project studios ranging from bedroom to mansion.
AI: Advanced Integration
AI stands for Advanced Integration, being a technology developed in close collaboration between Steinberg and Yamaha. The AI technology allows for a seamless integration of the DAWs developed by Steinberg into the digital audio hardware from Yamaha and Steinberg. AI provides plug-and-play at an as-yet unknown level. The software automatically carries out the required settings of the connected hardware, such as selecting drivers and the remote settings â it couldnât be easier.
Instant plug and play with Cubase
Each CMC controller features full plug and play with Cubase, requiring no additional setup as a controller device. A swift, one-step installation procedure is all thatâs required. Once the installation has been performed, Cubase detects the device when launched and automatically binds the unit into the Cubase production environment. To reflect this, the Ready lamp lights up and the controller is ready to assume control.
Cubase AI 6 included
Each of the CMC units includes an exclusive download version of Cubase AI, a special, compact version of the popular Cubase music production system. Together with one or more CMC units, you have a complete system solution for fine-tuning your music to perfection.
