Steinberg Media Technologies has released the Steinberg Production Starter Kit, a hardware/software bundle which includes key tools for recording and producing music.
The new bundle features the UR22C USB 3.0 audio interface, Nektar’s Impact LX25+ keyboard, the ST-H01 studio headphones and the ST-M01 studio condenser microphone. The software components are Cubase Artist 10.5, HALion Sonic 3, WaveLab LE and Cubasis LE, the sequencer app for the iPad and iPhone.
The UR22C is a two-channel audio interface with USB-C connectivity, housing two TRS/XLR combo inputs that include studio-grade D-PRE microphone preamps, two TRS outputs, MIDI I/O and one headphones output. Other highlights are latency-free hardware monitoring, high audio quality with a sampling rate of up to 192 kHz and connectivity to Windows and Mac computers and the iPad and iPhone.
Cubase Artist 10.5 is based on the same technologies offered within Steinberg’s advanced music production system, Cubase Pro, combining audio and MIDI recording and production, with many creative tools and instruments. To complement the array of sounds and instruments already included in Cubase, HALion Sonic 3 provides over 3,200 instrument sounds together with many effects for further audio processing.
To make the Starter Kit a ‘full production solution’, Steinberg partnered with controller manufacturer, Nektar, to include the Impact LX25+ which features a 25-note velocity sensitive keyboard with full-size, piano-style keys, as well as eight velocity sensitive illuminated pads, eight rotary pots and transport controls.
