Based on Steinberg’s award-winning advanced music production system Cubase Pro, Cubase AI is a powerful, one-stop music software solution for studio-quality recording. Combining audio and MIDI recording, editing, mixing and scoring in a single, integrated software package, Cubase AI is the perfect entry into the world of computer-based music production. Featuring Steinberg’s advanced audio engine, flexible routing and full automatic delay compensation, it supports 48 MIDI, 16 instrument, 32 audio tracks and 16 physical inputs. Cubase AI comes with a range of high-quality audio effect processors, the HALion Sonic SE workstation instrument and MixConsole for a stellar mixing experience.
UR-C’s seamless integration with iPad is enhanced by the inclusion of Cubasis LE, for creating professional music productions on your iPad. Featuring the same look and feel of its bigger brother Cubasis, Cubasis LE is especially designed for quick and easy operation, making recording, editing and mixing a breeze, as well as opening up a new world of possibilities for your creativity. It supports up to four audio and four MIDI tracks, features a mixer with studio-grade effects processors and also includes MicroSonic, a virtual instrument with 25 virtual instrument sounds, a virtual keyboard, sample editor and key editor.
dspMixFx mixing application
UR-C interfaces provide zero-latency monitoring with effects for every DAW, with straightforward control of all routings and settings, thanks to the built-in DSP chip and the dspMixFx UR-C software. Powered by Yamaha’s custom-designed SSP3 DSP chip, dspMixFx technology offers latency-free monitoring, together with the highly acclaimed REV-X reverb, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip and Guitar Amp Classics for users of any DAW software. When using Cubase, all of the advanced monitoring capabilities are fully integrated into the application’s GUI by True Integrated Monitoring technology, with users able to choose to control the monitoring capabilities from either Cubase or the dspMixFx application.
Bundled effects plug-in suite
The UR-Cs come with both VST 3 and AU versions of the onboard DSP plug-ins, providing additional useful sound-shaping and FX tools. The Basic FX Suite comprises three software components: REV-X reverb, Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip, and Guitar Amp Classics, all developed by Yamaha and incorporating modeling technology.
The REV-X built into UR-C interfaces is a complex reverb algorithm, renowned for its high-density, richly reverberant sound quality, with smooth attenuation, spread and depth that work together to enhance the original, dry sound. Featuring three types of reverb effect — Hall, Room and Plate simulations — all include reverb time and level controls. REV-X is a truly classic reverb effect, perfect for bringing a professional sheen to every recording.
Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip
Developed to deliver a highly musical result, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip combines a sidechain-enabled compressor and a three-band parametric equalizer. As its name suggests, the Morph Knob allows you to morph through both EQ and compression settings in combination, letting you quickly dial in the ideal sound with a single control. Offering quick and easy setting of just the right combination of compression and EQ, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip brings the ideal amount of ear-friendly dynamics to your sound.
Guitar Amp Classics
Guitar Amp Classics are guitar amplifier effects that make extensive use of advanced Yamaha modeling technology, delivering highly realistic and finely tuned emulations of classic tube and transistor amplifier tones. Four amp types with different sonic characteristics are provided.
Optimized for clean tones, this amp effectively simulates the tight brilliance of transistor amplifiers. Also featuring built-in chorus and vibrato, the tonal character of this model provides an ideal sonic foundation for recording with multi-effects.
This is the amp type to use when you want lightly overdriven crunch tones. It simulates the type of vintage tube amplifiers that are favored for classic blues, rock, soul, R’n’B and similar styles.
Six amplifier types are provided. Types 1 and 2 feature relatively mild distortion that allows picking nuances to naturally come. Types 3 and 4 have more pronounced overtones, resulting in a fat, soft tone. Types 5 and 6 deliver wild, aggressive distortion with a tight attack. The even-numbered amp types have greater presence and range than the odd-numbered types.
This amp type simulates a high gain tube amp that is rich in overtones. Ideally suited to playing lead guitar lines that will fit well within an ensemble mix, it can also be set up for crisp accompaniment tones, making it a very versatile emulation.
