Comments about Steinberg CI2 Advanced-Integration USB Studio:

I plugged this baby in the first time after installing the software and was amazed at how ez this was to use. There are templates of different music styles ready to go and the sound quality killed my last Tascam box! I have an iMac and this whole setup was as ez as using Mac applications ;-) The real cool thing is the knob and recording button that totally controls Cubase right away withpout having to do any setup. For this price, it's stooooopid good!
