One of the first steps to creating a professional-grade recording studio or live audio rig is gearing up with equipment that can meet the standards you need to deliver world-class work. For a lot of industry veterans, that means Steinberg recording gear. This great range of interfaces and controllers has plenty to offer to get you up and running, and putting out the high-end results that will get you noticed on the pro audio scene. If you're setting up a small home or hobby studio, the first interfaces you'll want to look at are the UR22 and UR44 USB interfaces. These units fit easily into any budget, which makes them excellent choices for just starting out, and their portable enclosures are ideal for mobile studio setups. They also have built-in Cubase support and are even available in a bundle with that software for a little extra convenience. Looking for an even higher-end USB interface? If so, try the rack-mounted UR824 on for size. It comes with a feature set that's sure to satisfy the most demanding recording engineers.
The other major type of recording gear that you'll find in Steinberg's selection is a solid line of controllers. The Transport Controller, for example, is designed to manage all of the transport controls of software applications like Cubase, Nuendo and others. There's also the Pad Controller, which is a compact set of MIDI triggers perfect for drum cues. If you'd like to make your software workstation a little more intuitive, you should also take a look at the AI Controller. It provides fingertip dial control over your commonly-used adjustment functions.
From interfaces to controllers, everything Steinberg makes has its aim set on a specific goal: to put you more in touch with your digital music production software. Whether that means connecting analog sound sources through the USB interfaces or taking direct control over your applications with one of the CMC controllers, Steinberg recording gear is ready to hook you up.
