The CMC QC unit houses 13 illuminated buttons and eight rotary encoders with green LED lights that change their lighting intensity according to the set position. To ensure a maximum of flexibility, the controller comes with three dedicated working modes — EQ, Quick Control and MIDI. Once in the EQ mode, the rotary encoders mirror the Cubase Channel EQ controls to give you accurate control over the frequency, gain and bandwidth levels. Being the perfect choice for tweak freaks and control enthusiasts, the QC mode brings the powerful Cubase Quick Controls to your fingertips, including their potential to create off-the-beaten-track effects and precise automation data. The assignment is as fast as it gets: choose a parameter within Cubase, push the f/Q Learn button and turn the desired encoder — that’s it. Plus, the versatile MIDI mode turns the CMC QC into a freely configurable MIDI controller to provide addtitional creative headroom.
