Product Description

Engineered specifically for the thousands of production environments using Cubase worldwide, CC121 interfaces the creativity of musicians and producers with the functional complexity of the world’s most popular music production system. Built to an extremely high manufacturing and component standard, CC121 provides totally integrated tactile control of Steinberg’s Cubase range of production systems, with a unique design architecture that keeps you 100% focused on your Cubase project.

Perhaps the most innovative area of CC121 is the revolutionary AI Knob, a ‘point and control’ precision controller. 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 or on the interface itself. The parameter can be locked to the AI Knob to retain control when the mouse is moved elsewhere onscreen.

The unique AI Knob is paired with a range of dedicated, high-quality hardware controls over a huge range of Cubase transport, channel and EQ features. The 100mm touch-sensitive motorized fader is the same as that found on Yamaha’s professional digital mixing consoles, and gives full tactile control of the selected channel or group volume fader. High-quality controller switches and rotary knobs dedicated to specific functions mean no tedious stepping through parameters for control. Color coding that mirrors the Cubase buttons further supports easy navigation when using CC121.

This next-generation combination of dedicated controls and the ultra-flexible AI Knob provides a sleek, sturdy and feature-rich controller that is the perfect extension for the many thousands of Cubase studio environments around the world today.
