"Thank you so much. I'm so happy I found this website! You guys Rock!" - Debbie, NY

"We are always very happy with the service we receive from Kraft Music. We live nearby and purchased a digital piano at the old location. The new location is much more welcoming for people to walk in and browse the pianos and now the guitars. The people working always make us feel welcome." - Craig, WI


The USB-powered CMC AI Controller provides instant, hands-on tweakability for your Cubase music production system. Adjust plug-in and track parameters with your fingertips, create elaborate volume curves or browse sounds and presets in a breeze—with this flexible controller you will not only save valuable studio time but also add convenience to your recording, editing and mixing workflow.

The multi-functional centerpiece of the CMC unit is the acclaimed AI Knob. This innovative 'point and precision' knob allows you to quickly control about any visual Cubase object, such as mixer faders, EQ gain knobs or effect send levels. Simply point the mouse cursor on the desired object and you can instantly control the object-related value via the AI Knob—without additional assignments. For more convenience, the object can be locked to the AI Knob to retain control when the mouse is moved elsewhere onscreen.

In addition to the classic AI mode there are two special working modes that further enhance the unit's capabilities. In the Volume mode the AI Knob turns into a high-precision master volume control, while the Jog mode equips the knob with intuitive jog functionality. Plus, by pushing the AI Knob once the Browse function is activated, which lets you select presets and sounds from pop-up dialogs with the turn of a knob.

To make this portable controller even more versatile, the CMC-AI houses four user-assignable function buttons, allowing you to adapt the unit exactly to your needs. In sum, this mobile control device is a smart and easy-to-use addition to the computer mouse and keyboard. The universal AI Knob, customizable function buttons and dedicated working modes make this piece of hardware a must for any serious Cubase user.

Steinberg CMC series

The CMC series is made up of six USB-powered controllers (sold separately) that can be individually combined to form a custom-made Cubase control desk. Whether beat creation, transport control, editing or multi-track mixing, there is the perfect model for every task. Each of the six slim-sized units is unique in its own way and features a dedicated set of illuminated rotary encoders, touch faders or pads—each of them designed to take hands-on control of a specific section in Cubase. Due to the adoption of Cubase's icons and color scheme, users will instantly feel at home with the workflow. Take control, keep focused and be flexible—the CMC series will tremendously speed up your recording, editing and mixing workflow no matter if you are in the studio or on the go.

CMC stands for the world's first truly integrated, modular controller system. Made up of six unique units, each designed for a dedicated purpose, the CMC micro controllers can be individually combined to form a personal Cubase control desk—with up to nine CMC units. With the included joint plate, it is a straightforward matter to fix several CMC units.

Small in size but big in value, the CMC series are your perfect partner on the road. The units are small enough to fit in your pocket, on a master keyboard or wherever desired. Since the CMC units are powered via USB, you don't need any additional power supply. And with a unique level of handling quality, the CMC series is suited for both crowded live venues and project studios ranging from bedroom to mansion.

Each CMC controller features full plug and play with Cubase, requiring no additional setup as a controller device. A swift, one-step installation procedure is all that's required. Once the installation has been performed, Cubase detects the device when launched and automatically binds the unit into the Cubase production environment. To reflect this, the Ready lamp lights up and the controller is ready to assume control.

Each of the CMC units includes an exclusive download version of Cubase AI, a special, compact version of the popular Cubase music production system. Together with one or more CMC units, you have a complete system solution for fine-tuning your music to perfection.
