Just looking for suggestions/guidance.
I recently picked up the UR824 second hand and I’m loving the sound and flexibility as compared with my 2 channel interfaces. I’d been using the UR22 MKII for a year or so and have been very happy with quality and stability – so much so that I wanted to choose a Steinberg product for an 8 channel interface when I got the money together. Part of the appeal of the product for me was the hardware integration with Cubase. I’m actually a Reaper person and have been for years (started in Pro Tools) but the use of DSP for basic FX processing running in a DAW channel strip was compelling to me. I upgraded my old version of Cubase 6 LE (that came with a Zoom recorder) to 10.5 Elements the other day hoping I would get the hardware option in the rack drop down but it’s not there. I have scoured Google and this forum and it looks to have been an issue over the years with the MR816 and the the UR44/UR824.
I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver and haven’t been able to see a hardware option in the rack. I have set to direct monitoring and filtered to all inputs so i don’t know what else to do. Should I reinstall Cubase? What order would be best – hardware drivers first or after the Cubase installation?
I have the DspMixFx app running fine so it’s not the end of the world but it would be nice to have all the integration as described as this was a big pull factor for me to purchase this particular interface and even possibly start working outside of Reaper.
