Steinberg CMC Controller Series

Steinberg has announced the CMC Controller Series, a new range of USB controllers that can be individually combined to form a custom-made Cubase control system.

Comprising six slim yet powerful units, the CMC series has all the control options you’re looking for — whether you are recording, editing and mixing music, creating beats or performing live. Each of the six slim-sized controllers is unique in its own way and features a dedicated set of rotary encoders, touch faders or pads designed to take hands-on control of a specific section in Cubase.

Up to nine CMC units can be combined to design a personal controller system. For even more flexibility, you can use the PD, FD or any other CMC model together with Steinberg’s CC121 Advanced Integration controller. And the optionally available, beautifully crafted frames provide a convenient way to safely mount your units.

Perfect ergonomics, instant plug-and-play compatibility with Cubase and user-assignable functions make the CMC series the ultimate choice for any serious Cubase user — so get in touch, take control and stay flexible.

CMC Controller Series

  • CMC-CH is the hardware equivalent of the eminently powerful Cubase channel section and brings hands-on access to all channel-related functions.
  • CMC-FD carries four newly developed, high resolution touch faders that provide precision control over four Cubase channels at the same time, including solo/mute and metering.
  • CMC-TP provides instant access to the Cubase transport section, featuring dedicated buttons and an innovative, multi-purpose touch slider for convenient DAW control.
  • CMC-PD houses a MPC-style 4×4 pad matrix, which makes it the ultimate controller for creating dynamic grooves and natural percussion patterns.
  • CMC-QC brings the powerful Cubase Quick Controls to your fingertips and provides precise tactile control over the Cubase Channel EQ and external MIDI devices.
  • CMC-AI features Steinberg’s groundbreaking AI Knob and is a truly versatile and time-saving addition to any Cubase system.

The CMC controllers and accessories are available through the Steinberg Online Shop in October. Shipping of the CMC controllers and accessories to dealers in Europe begins in October; however, the exact time of availability at certified Steinberg dealers is subject to regional variations.

The suggested retail price for the CMC-CH, CMC-TP, CMC-QC, CMC-PD and CMC-AI is 159 EUR each. The CMC-FD is 199 EUR. The suggested retail price for the CMC CC121 Extension Frame is 149 EUR. All prices including German VAT.
