Cubase Hardware Controller

Postby pattexer » Sun Mar 24, 2013 4:40 pm

Hi!
I have been a long time cubase user, but the last year I have worked on a pro tools rig with a Digidesign 003. I really enjoy to work with real faders and wondered if there was something similar for cubase? I have seen the CMC series, but i feel that is not quite what im after, since all i really need is 8-16 faders with some other basics in front of me. The Nuage looks interesting, but I have not seen it for sale yet, and i imagine it cost quite a bit...

+1

And I would prefer Mackie over Avid. Why?
1. It's expandable
2. It's "industry standard"

When you say "hardware", have you considered an Ipad with appropriate software? I'm using an Ipad with Lemur and have designed my own layout and it's by far the best controller I've ever used (and I've had just about every controller aside from the Eucon series). Not only does it control Cubase but acts as a midi keybaord controller and controls my entire studio monitoring via RME Totalmix, all on one screen.

Comp 2:Windows 7 64bit, Asus P5W DH Deluxe, Q6600, 8 gig Corsair XMS ram, , MR816 X(x2) VE Pro

I made a post with some screenshots and video link to my Lemur/Cubase/RME Totalmix setup. IMO, the best controller I've ever used...

I wouldn't call Lemur as a "hardware controller" even in my wildest dreams.
