Overview

The USB-powered CMC Transport Controller is the ultra-intuitive
hardware equivalent of the Cubase transport section. This featurepacked
yet easy-to-use micro controller is the ultimate choice for
smooth project navigation, demanding editing tasks and mouse-free
recording sessions. With a total of 17 buttons, user-definable functions
and a pioneering touch device, this controller is a valuable addition to
any project studio or live performance setup.

Key features

  • USB-powered transport controller
  • Major Transport functions, including Play, Stop, Record, Rew, Fwd, Cycle, Nudge and Insert Marker

  • 4 user-assignable function keys

In detail

The high-precision touch-sensitive slider forms the centerpiece of the CMC Transport Controller. This innovative, multi-purpose touch device takes DAW control to a whole new level. Six working modes allow you to jog or shuttle through the project, to tap in the tempo, to scroll, zoom and browse with the convenience of a slide. Now you can control your audio with your fingertips — it’s faster, smoother and more accurate than with the computer mouse. To never get lost, the red LED lights provide visual feedback on the exact position.


Apart from this novelty, the CMC-TP houses buttons for all major transport functions, including play, stop, record, cycle, fast forward and rewind. Additional buttons for inserting markers, setting the locator range or inserting a new track, to name a few, make the CMC-TP a powerful recording and editing assistant. Best of all, four of its buttons can even hold a second function, which can be freely assigned by the user.

To put it straight, the CMC-TP will truly accelerate your recording and editing workflow, while making project navigation even faster and smoother at the same time.
