Steinberg has released the Cubase iC remote control app for iPhone and iPod Touch. First announced at this year’s NAMM show, you now can download your copy from the Apple iTunes Store for free.

Cubase iC transforms your iPhone and your iPod touch into a powerful remote control for Cubase 5 and Cubase Studio 5. Whether you are using Cubase in the studio or on stage, Cubase iC gives you fast and precise control of essential functions from anywhere within your Wi-Fi network’s range. Cubase iC gives you access to basic transport functions, allows you to monitor playback position and control the unique Arranger Track.

Recording — Cubase iC is of great assistance to musicians recording in a rehearsal room or home studio. With it, basic functions for recording different takes and parts are controlled via your iPhone or iPod Touch without using your computer each time.

Producing — Producers can access the essential transport functions from all over the studio. This comes in handy when recording and mixing and during listening sessions with musicians and clients.
