CUBE Lite MONITOR: Monitor Amplifier

Sing, play, and practice with your iOS devices

Features

The CUBE Lite MONITOR is a 2.1 channel audio system with microphone and instrument inputs. Place it on top of your keyboard, plug in your microphone and connect to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The free CUBE JAM iOS app lets you play along to music and record your performance back to the app. You can also slow down the audio playback speed to help learn your part, and you can even minimise the effect of pre-recorded vocals by using the centre-cancel feature, so you can play or sing on top.

The powerful stereo speakers and subwoofer fill the room with rich sound, and onboard effects let you set the correct ambience for singing and playing instruments. The versatile CUBE Lite MONITOR is ideal for music practice, music lessons, home entertainment, meeting rooms and doubles as a great-sounding music system for your digital music library.

Sing and play with high-quality sound

The CUBE Lite MONITOR has two 1/4-inch inputs for either a mic and mono instrument, or one stereo instrument. Easy-to-use reverb and echo effects let you create the correct ambience for singing and playing. The powerful 2.1 channel stereo sound system has an integrated subwoofer, for a rich and full sound. For silent practice, you can plug in headphones to mute the onboard speakers.

Connects easily with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

You can easily connect your iOS device to the Cube Lite monitor. The supplied cable transforms the Cube Lite into an audio interface for your iOS device, allowing you to play and/or record music with any audio app. Once connected, you can use the CUBE Lite MONITOR to blend your mic/instrument with the iOS audio. The i-CUBE LINK port can also be used as a simple stereo input, so you listen to your music player through the CUBE Lite.

Powerful recording and practice with CUBE JAM iOS app

The free CUBE JAM app turns your iOS device into a powerful tool for audio recording and music practice. Play the music from the CUBE JAM app through the amp, sing or play over the top and then record your performance back into the app. Then you can adjust the volume of your performance and backing music independently in CUBE JAM, and export your mix as a 16-bit, 44.1 kHz WAV file to share with friends and family.

Direct Mode

Normally, recording from the CUBE Lite MONITOR into CUBE JAM or another app captures the sound as you hear it, with the onboard reverb/echo effect applied. Activating the CUBE Lite’s Direct Mode feature lets you capture dry sounds while monitoring with the effect sound. Recording dry tracks in this way gives you the option to experiment with other processing later, using the audio app of your choice. Direct Mode also allows you to use real-time processing in any app, monitoring the live output with the CUBE Lite MONITOR.

There are also useful tools for music practice and learning songs, including tempo change, pitch adjustment to change the song key to suit your voice, and Centre Cancel to create tracks for karaoke-style singing.

Flexible ‘direct mode’ for recording

If you record from the CUBE Lite MONITOR into CUBE JAM (or other apps), they capture the sound as you hear it, with the onboard reverb/echo effect applied. Activating the CUBE Lite’s Direct Mode lets you capture dry sounds while monitoring with the effect sound. Recording dry tracks in this way lets you experiment with other processing later, using the audio app of your choice. Direct Mode also allows you to use real-time processing in any app, monitoring the live output with the CUBE Lite MONITOR.

Stylish design for modern living

With its compact, tabletop design and stylish white finish, the CUBE Lite MONITOR blends in at home, in the studio or the office. It’s a great amp for mics and instruments, but is also a high-quality home playback system for your digital music library. Use it in your living room as an audio hub, your bedroom for music practice, or in your office as a high-quality sound system for your PC and tablet.
