- CC121 is ready to assume control. Instant plug and play is just one of the advantages of CC121 as a fully integrated controller with Cubase, bonding with Cubase to form one exhilaratingly powerful hardware/software production system.
USB bus-poweredThe CC121 is powered using the USB bus on your computer. This means simply connecting the CC121 to a USB port offers full control over Cubase. When the included AC adaptor is also connected, the precision fader is motorized, accurately displaying the volume level on the selected track.
Fully mirrored functionalityOne of the major advantages of the CC121 is the software-hardware-mirroring. In distinction from DAW controllers you'll find all Cubase controlling functions in hardware exactly mirrored to their software counterpart. You don't need to learn where you've put the functions on your controller. You can work with your Cubase as intuitive as before but with the convenience of a hardware mixer. It's possible to control all functions with the push of a button. No more necessity for long mouse clicking ways.
AI Knob Perhaps the most innovative area of CC121 is the revolutionary AI Knob, a 'point and control' precision controller. Rather than attempting to replace traditional mouse pointing devices, the AI Knob harnesses the flexibility of a computer mouse to offer unprecedented speed when editing parameters and adjusting settings. The computer mouse is simply moved over the parameter, which is then automatically placed under full precision control through the AI Knob, with no need to make any additional settings in Cubase, any additional software module or on the interface itself. The parameter can be locked to the AI Knob to retain control when the mouse is moved elsewhere onscreen.

Dedicated Cubase controlsThe unique AI Knob is paired with a range of dedicated, high-quality hardware controls over a huge range of Cubase transport, channel and EQ features. High-quality controller switches and rotary knobs dedicated to specific functions mean no tedious stepping through parameters for control. Colour coding that mirrors the Cubase buttons further supports easy navigation with CC121.
Transport sectionThe transport section of Cubase can be controlled directly from the CC121, with a compact and easy-to-use transport section that mirrors the Cubase transport bar.
Channel sectionThe CC121 is specifically designed for Cubase software, providing tremendous efficiency and speed in your workflow. CC121 offers dedicated control of Cubase channel settings including solo/mute, record arm, automation read/write as well as pan
- all highlighted in the same colour as the graphic control in Cubase.One of the most important features on CC121 is the motorized 100mm touch-sensitive fader. This top-quality component has an absolutely first-class feel normally only found on hardware mixing consoles costing many times more This fader gives precision tactile control over volume settings for the selected track or group.Another advantage of the very tight integration with Cubase comes in the form of the dedicated buttons to open both the VST Channel Settings and selected VST Instrument Track for detailed editing using the AI Knob and mouse.
EQ sectionA unique feature of CC121 is the advanced Cubase Channel EQ in hardware form. Twelve dedicated rotary encoders offer precision control of the Cubase Channel EQ. Q-factor, Frequency and Gain all have their own rotary encoder for each band. Additional buttons provide control of the bypass switch for the EQ in the selected track, as well as selection of the EQ type. As with all the dedicated controls, the EQ section on the CC121 has been engineered to offer the best possible controller integration into the Cubase production environment, speeding up workflow and boosting creativity.
User-assignable sectionThe four Function buttons on the front panel can control various parameters of Cubase by assigning the desired parameter to each of these buttons. This may, for example, be zoom settings for the selected track. Also included are templates which automatically assign these controls for you, for example to the Cubase Control Room.

For customers shipping to a PO Box, the order may need to be shipped via USPS. For this reason, expected delivery dates cannot be guaranteed.
Do you ship to my location?
For most products shipping to the continental United States, customers may choose Ground, 2-Day Air, or 1-Day Air delivery. We also ship to Alaska and Hawaii; however, due to carrier restrictions, we cannot ground-ship to those states.

See instructions below for how to search the site by our eligible shipping destinations.
Note: We cannot change a shipping address on an order after it has shipped. If an order is returned because it couldn't be received at the listed shipping address, we will accept the return but will not refund the shipping charges.

Canadian orders are charged in U.S. dollars. Actual charges are dependent on your bank's conversion rate. Your bank may assess additional fees for international orders.
Although items shipped to Canada receive their full factory warranty, they must be returned to a United States service center for repairs. We're not responsible for any shipping or customs fees incurred in such a case.

What about customs fees?
Please be aware of customs fees such as taxes and duties, which are not included in our shipping charges. Customs fees vary from location to location.

Which items ship immediately?
Most orders ship the same business day your order is placed when you place a valid order before the shipping deadline.
Immediate shipment is available Monday-Friday. A valid order placed before 5 p.m. EST will ship the same day when using Ground or Free 2-Day shipping. Ground and Free 2-Day shipping orders placed after 5 p.m. EST will ship the next business day. Many orders using an expedited shipping method (2 Day Air or Next Day Air), and placed before 10 p.m. EST, will ship the same day.
Shipment and availability information updates from our warehouse to our website almost in real time. We are highly confident of the status of each item when you view a page. However, we do not reserve inventory being viewed or even placed in shopping carts, so we cannot guarantee an item's availability until you have placed your order. In particular, if you have been in the checkout area for more than about 10 minutes, we do recommend that you refresh the page to get the most current inventory prior to checking out.
What is a valid order?
A valid order is for a valid item at a valid price, placed with a credit card with complete and verifiable address and other information. Details.
Does immediate shipment mean immediate delivery?
Once an order is shipped, our carriers (Federal Express and UPS) typically guarantee a service time for when the order will be delivered to you. Our carriers have a very good record of delivering at their promised service time. We will ship immediately, and on all items, we will refund expedited shipping charges if the carrier's service levels for your chosen shipping method are not met.
If a product is in stock, is there any reason it will not ship immediately?
Exceptions are very unusual, but here are some examples of reasons that might prevent us from shipping immediately:
- Warehouse, call center, or web operations lose power or telecom connectivity.
- Warehouse, call center, or web operations lose capability due to adverse weather (blizzard), safety threat, or other factors.
