When I got my UR824, there was a promotion that if you buy a UR824, they will refund you $100 dollars or give you a Steinberg CI2 for free, and I chose the Steinberg CI2, and I think its going to arrive next week.
But I have a few questions: If I want to try the CI2 in the same laptop where I have the Tools for UR824 installed, should I install the TOOLS for CI2/CI2+? Or it will work just fine with the same Yamaha usb driver of the UR824?
Because I think that the usb driver it´s the same, just the other tools are different, like the CI2 that has the AI Knob function to control Cubase, so if I don´t install the Tools for CI2 I won´t be able to use the AI Knob functions (I don´t really care too much about that) if it works ok with the same usb driver, I´m ok, but just in case that I do need to install it, could it be a problem with the Tools of the UR824??? I just don´t want to mess the system.
And the last question: is it posible to use both units at the same time, like for example: have the 8 channels of the UR824 plus the 2 channels of the CI2 and have a total of 10 channels to record at the same time?
Thanks in advance.
