Overview

The USB-powered CMC Channel Controller is the hardware equivalent of the eminently powerful Cubase channel section. 16 illuminated rubber buttons, one green-lit rotary encoder and a groundbreaking touch fader give you hands-on control over the major channel-related functions in Cubase, including record arm, solo/mute, pan and volume. Due to the adoption of Cubase’s icons and color scheme, users will instantly feel at home with this lightweight and compact yet incredibly effective control unit.

In detail


The multi-colored function buttons are an intuitive and time-saving alternative to using the computer mouse or the keyboard. Access VST instrument settings, solo and mute tracks, bypass EQs, sends and inserts or freeze a channel — all with the push of a button. With the Channel Select button you can browse easily through the entire Cubase mixer, while the rotary encoder provides direct access to the pan setting and gives you visual feedback via the integrated LED light. For even more convenience, eight buttons can hold a second, freely assignable function that is accessible by pressing the Shift button.


A visual and technical masterpiece, the high-resolution touch fader provides precise, tactile control over the volume level of a track. With a resolution of up to 1,024 steps and integrated LEDs this touch device truly stands apart from other control devices. Touch it, feel it and control your mix faster and more convenient than ever before.

The clearly structured layout, the seamless Cubase integration and technical innovations such as the touch fader make this portable USB-controller the perfect companion for any Cubase user — whether playing live, recording in the studio or just hanging out in the park.
