Cubase & UR22 Recording Packs – All the essentials for the Recording Musician
By John Knowles
Feat. OFFICAL PRESS STATEMENT
Steinberg, MXL, MOGAMI, and Yamaha Join Forces to Offer Consumers High Value Recording Packs
Best-in-Class Recording Packs Put Comprehensive Multitrack Recording Solutions In The Hands of Professional and Entry Level Music Creators
Four of the top names in recording, Steinberg, MXL, MOGAMI, and Yamaha announce the release of two new recording packs that offer musicians, engineers and producers the best brands in the box: the Cubase Recording Pack and the UR22 Recording Pack.
The Cubase Recording Pack comes with Cubase 7* and the UR22 audio interface from Steinberg, along with an MXL1022 condenser microphone, MXL-57 shock mount and a Mogami 10’ XLR-XLR cable. The Cubase Recording Pack also includes a pair of Yamaha RH5MA headphones – the final component in this quality instant recording studio solution.
*Please note: the Cubase Recording Pack includes Cubase 7 Upgrade 4 to ‘upgrade’ the existing license, pre-loaded onto the included eLicenser USB key.
The second bundle, the hardware-oriented UR22 Recording Pack, features the UR22, an MXL1022 condenser microphone, an MXL-57 shock mount and a Mogami 10’ XLR-XLR cable. The UR22 Recording Pack is aimed at first time audio interface users who seek a high quality solution featuring trustworthy brands.
Editor’s Note: This pack also includes a Full Version of Cubase AI 7 to get you started!
Editor’s Note: Both of these packages are an incredible and widely versatile deal. If you already own a digital-audio-workstation (DAW) or some sort, look no further than the UR22. But, if you are looking to delve into the world of music production, or you are an artist looking to create a great recording at home and on a budget, look no further than the Cubase Recording Pack. Compared to the competition, this is an unmatched deal. Take for example Pro Tools 11, the latest from Avid. The software alone retails for around $700! While no one can deny the capabilities of a good Pro Tools rig in the hands of the right engineer, the home musician or hobbyist faces quite a challenge in mastering the elements of the software, let alone affording it along with the necessary hardware equipment. The Cubase Recording Pack features the full version of Cubase 7, the latest from Steinberg, along with the amazing UR22 interface, (click here for more) microphone and shock mount, Mogami cable, and a great pair of headphones from none other than Yamaha. This is literally everything you need to produce a great recording at home, and all for around $600 (purchase here). Both of these packages would also make the perfect gift for the holidays.
One of the most popular Digital Audio Workstations in the world, Cubase 7 features the new MixConsole, enhanced workflow options and a new Channel Strip that offers epic pro-console sound. The rock-solid UR22 USB 2.0 audio interface includes two D-PRE preamps and 192 kHz support, providing professional-grade sound in a portable package.
The MXL1022 large diaphragm condenser microphone captures vocals and instruments in crisp detail. It features an FET preamp with balanced output and wide frequency response to pick up a broad range of sound, from vocals to a wide variety of instruments. The microphone is internally wired with world-class Mogami cable for precise recordings and, when placed into the MXL-57 shock mount, ensures professional performance.
The 10’ XLR-XLR Cable from Mogami, the largest selling cable brand for major recording facilities, delivers the purest recordings. Each cable is made from Mogami's 2552 microphone cable with signature Mogami 100 percent spiral coverage for extremely low noise. The cable is finished off with high quality gold-contact XLR connectors.
Yamaha RH5MA headphones, which provide accurate sound reproduction, represent an excellent choice for pro studio monitoring. Featuring a semi-closed design, they come with 1/4” and 1/8” inch jacks along with an eight-foot long cable. Frequency response is 20 Hz to 20 kHz and the impedance is 32 ohms.
“MXL and MOGAMI are proud to be bundled with products by two well-respected names in music recording – Steinberg and Yamaha,” said MXL Director of Sales and Marketing Perry Goldstein. “These bundles are compilations of four excellent brands that will result in a great experience for the end user.”
Steinberg North America Director Alan Macpherson said that “Having such renowned brands as MXL, Mogami and Yamaha bundled with Steinberg’s most popular products is inspiring. With only the best brands included, there is a clearly defined quality difference for both professional and entry level end users.”
