A quick update;
had a very frustrating few days trying to integrate my analogue hardware and various other things.
My main problem is that after 1; realising the MR units have a global volume control and therefore would turn down the sends to hardware when using the volume control.
The UR only has 4 mixes available which seem to have to be shared with your monitors so if you’ve more than 2 pairs of monitors and more than 2 cue mixes you’re stuffed.
Also even with that limitation, when I exit cubendo the channels that have the hardware on then suddenly are at 0db and very noisy and the only way to lower them is to open the UR editor and uncheck the corresponding outputs to link them back to the volume knob and turn them down.
I then have to re do the whole scenario then when I open cubendo as the settings aren’t remembered.
I’ve asked on the UR forum but no one there uses the UR/ control room for more than just basic recording so have had no joy in getting to the bottom of this.
It does seem crazy that Steinberg’s own hardware doesn’t take full advantage of their own control room/Hardware FX when using it in a real world scenario.
