Cubase IC Pro for Android

Steinberg has announced the immediate release of the Android version of Cubase iC Pro, an app for remote controlling the award-wining Cubase music production system via Wi-Fi.

“Since releasing Cubase iC Pro as iOS app, we’ve registered a massive demand to port the software to the Android environment. Cubase iC Pro for Android boasts the same feature set as the iOS version, offering users the ultimate possibility of remote controlling Cubase in many ways,” comments Carlos Mendoza Rohde, product marketing manager at Steinberg.

Cubase iC Pro comprises different screen configurations designed to leverage the real estate of large tablet displays but also to work nicely on smaller mobile devices. The project overview allows Cubase users to navigate quickly through the project with pinch-to-zoom functionality, change tempo and add markers. The transport section comes with playback controls and metronome. The channel mixer adjusts levels, panning, mute/solo, read/write automation and record arming for basic recordings. When running Cubase versions 7.5, 7 and 6.5 with Control Room capability, users are able to set up a maximum of four headphone cue-mixes, individually controlled by each Android device. The final feature provides customizable key commands and macros that allow users to assign virtually any command in Cubase to the controller, making it highly flexible and easy to use.

Cubase iC Pro has been tested with smartphones and tablets running Android versions 4.0.3, 4.0.4, 4.1.2 and 4.3. Cubase versions supporting Cubase iC Pro are Cubase versions 7.5, 7 and 6.5, Cubase Artist versions 7.5, 7 and 6.5 and Cubase LE, AI and Elements versions 7 and 6. Installing the Cubase iC Pro Remote Extension for Android is a requirement.

Cubase iC Pro is available as download through Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. The app can be downloaded for free, but the Cubase iC Pro Remote Extension for Android is required for the connection to Cubase and is available from the Steinberg Online Shop. The price for the component is 14.99 EUR including German VAT.

IK Multimedia intros iRing motion controller for iOS

Related: , , , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 08, 2014 - comment 0 comments

IK Multimedia has announced iRing, the first motion-tracking controller for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch music apps and more.

IK Multimedia iRing

Now musicians, gamers, and more can trigger sounds and control effects and other parameters of their favorite apps, in real time, using hand position, freeing them from touching the screen!

iRing utilizes a wearable ring with identifiable markers, the mobile device’s front-facing camera, and advanced computer vision with highly-optimized recognition algorithms built-in to an app, to determine the precise positioning of the ring markers. The device camera picks up the positioning of the ring patterns and the apps convert that information into music commands for dedicated app or MIDI information, which any compatible music app can read. This means that a user can now operate up to six controllable music parameters in their preferred music apps with one or two hands gestures.

iRing includes two identical double-sided ring controllers, plus two free apps for music applications, which target everyone from music lovers to DJs to seasoned musicians: iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller.

iRing features

  • Ring controller, in tandem with either of two included apps featuring advanced motion-tracking technology, allows remote control of iOS app and app parameters using hand gestures.
  • Great for musicians and non-musicians alike.
  • Includes two identical, two-pattern reversible rings, allowing for numerous control combinations and the control up to 6 effect parameters simultaneously with two hands.
  • Rings are unique looking, light, comfortable and provide a universal fit.
  • Included iRing Music Maker app allows novices to make music using hand gestures.
  • Included iRing FX/Controller app lets musicians and DJs create custom MIDI control setups, plus add and control audio effects when used together with other music apps via Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.

iRing will cost $24.99 USD/19.99 EUR (exc. taxes), and will be available in Q1 2014 in three colors (white, green and silver). Pre-orders are already available on the IK Multimedia online store and selected stores. iRing FX/Controller and iRing Music Maker apps will be available as free downloads from the App Store.

Alto Professional launches Black Series wireless mobile speakers

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 11, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Alto Professional has announced the availability of its Black Series line of top-level loudspeakers and subwoofers with wireless capability and inbuilt power.

Alto Professional Black Series

Alto Professional’s all-new active Black Series collectively comprises three two-way loudspeaker models — namely, the Black 10, Black 12, and Black 15 (which, as implied by name, feature 10-, 12-, and 15-inch low-frequency drivers, respectively, alongside a 1.75-inch high-frequency driver, and are optimised with a 90° x 60° coverage field and an extensively tested high-frequency waveguide) — and two subwoofers — namely, the appropriately-named Black 15 Sub and Black 18 Sub (with 15-, and 18-inch low-frequency, long-excursion drivers, respectively).

All are designed and tuned to exacting standards in the USA with premium, purpose-matched components, and come complete with wireless technology. To be sure, all are remote-controllable via the Live Drive speaker app for iPhone and iPad, available for free from the App Store in December — level-match, adjust EQ, time-align, and more from anywhere in a room to nimbly adapt the speakers to suit new venues or performances! Pronounces Alto Professional Director of Engineering Bernard Werner: “Wireless control is incredibly useful, especially when the speakers are suspended or hard to get to. The Live Drive functionality lets you leave the normal mix position to tweak and fine-tune speaker settings via DSP so your system sounds perfect.”

Perfecting that system sound is helpfully boosted by the impressive inbuilt 2,400W peak (1,200W continuous) Class D power provided by each member of the Black Series family. For Jay Schlabs, Executive Director of Sales at Alto Professional, it’s a no- brainer. “We’ll put the Black Series up against any other speaker — and we have,” he touts. “The results in our live shootouts, every time, are unanimous. These speakers perform at an unrivalled level. People are blown away.”

The Black Series speakers are now available from Alto Professional dealers, priced at MSRP (including 20% VAT):

  • Black 10 – 799.99 EUR/£669.99 GBP
  • Black 12 – 899.99 EUR/£749.99 GBP
  • Black 15 – 999.99 EUR/£849.99 GBP
  • Black 15 Sub – 1,099.99 EUR/£919.99 GBP
  • Black 18 Sub – 1,299.99 EUR/£1,089.99 GBP

Serato Remote Mini will connect seamlessly to your Serato laptop software and work with all supported Scratch Live and Serato DJ hardware. Load tracks, instant double, set and trigger Cue Points, Loops and Samples and manipulate FX. Connect over USB for ultra low latency or wirelessly, freeing you to move around the stage.

We’ve designed the app with real world performance in mind. Similar to the Serato Remote for iPad®, the Serato Remote Mini has library control, plus three performance tabs: PADS, SP6 & FX, all have been meticulously designed for the iPhone and iPod touch.
