Launched as a stand-alone product earlier this year, Cubase SE is Steinberg's entry-level music production software. Offering up to 48 audio tracks and unlimited MIDI tracks, Cubase SE is based on many of the same technologies as its larger sibling, Cubase SX. ReWire implementation, a video thumbnail track and full VST 2 support are just some of the features the two applications have in common. Cubase SE also offers professional 24-bit 96 kHz recording as well as five insert and eight send effects per channel while, capacity for up to 16 VST instruments round off the complement of functions.
The audio and MIDI I/O is provided by MI2, a bus-powered USB audio/MIDI interface, which features 2-channel audio I/O as well as 16-channel MIDI interface. MI2 interfaces with a multitude of sources, such as guitars, basses, dynamic or self-powered microphones, electronic keyboards and synthesizers, mixers and preamps. The MI2 features a dedicated Hi-Z front panel input for guitars/basses, as well as complete monitoring/control room section with adjustable direct monitoring mix and independent headphone and main output volume.
