Is it safe to use my MR816 and the Cubase control room without going through an analogue monitor controller?
With Cubendo’s control room it seems I can switch monitors, external inputs etc etc which looks great in paper, however, in practice is it safe?
I’m aware that the MR has a volume control on the front of the unit and I could use any of my controllers to adjust the control level. I’m just a bit concerned about;
1: digital attenuation not being technically a good thing sonically, however this might be cancelled out by lack od cables/analogue pots etc being removed from the chain.
2: Destroying my $10,000 monitors if there was a sudden software noise blast.
