Here I clearly have bought a more expensive hardware model, having received virtually no updates, and so called VSTs I just can’t seem to be able to use, and they are releasing guitar-amp-simulations from Yamaha for lower end hardware??
I tried to download the package, see if I could run it, but I clearly didn’t
please! its software, make it available for the ppl who bought a more expensive model…
it’s like making a free upgrade for Cubase 7 AI, with new effects, but not for Cubase 7 ^o)…
have you tried using these “plugins” in Cubase for example, on a Retrologue patch, for example?
I just can’t get them to work :S, it just keeps giving me an error message “not available”… pretty useless then
mmm… double triple quadra feeling… u name it
MR is a decent sounding audio interface but lacks flexibility and it seems SB not really cares this product too much… only one Firmware update since its release !! a great one but not enough to make it more flexible… hope they update it with the new of UR update (Loopback function,guitar amps , maybe a delay too for spoiled singers )
I agree. It lacks of flexibility and the drivers in OSX are terrible: a real mess if you try to use this interface with non-SB software…
Moreover you cannot set the default sample rate, so that every time I turn it on it goes to 96 kHz.
As wrote, I bought a MR816X few weeks ago, as it’s one of the best sounding interface in its price range, and I preferred it over a UR824 as, for experience, USB2 interfaces have a lot of more problems, higher latency, etc…but just now I am realizing I bought a legacy product
For example, why did they increase the maximum sample rate for the UR824 and not for the MR816?
I’m not going to purchase the UR824 to replace my MR816csx. I mean it cost me $200 more at the time of purchase so I thought I was getting Steinbergs prize piece of HW. I see they’re favoring their newer UR line. Problem is I don’t like the look of the UR series, and I prefer to use Firewiere over USB2.
I’d like to see an update, but as long as they keep updating the firmware and drivers to keep the MR816 working with future OSX’s for a few more years I’m content.

10 October, me to Steinberg:
“Hello guys, congrats on the release of the update on the UR-series! However I feel a bit weird about it, having a more expensive model (MR816csx), which is not being serviced… if you know what I mean. Would it please be possible to release the “free content” for the low end UR-series, also for the higher end MR-series? would be great!”
Steinberg to me, 4 hours ago:
“And right you are. Will get back to you on this!”
… hmm here’s hoping that we see some lovin, otherwise … are they simply, re affirming your proclamation , and signing off with the a sinister “it’s in the mail …” … mwahhhhhh (add Dr. Evil laugh here …)
Bugger indeed !!
MR is “officially” the neglected son of y/s family
reminds me the Direct monitoring(daisy-chained) awful threads !! or not giving MR users the native plugin for REV-X
and it has some bugs too… like not following sample rate changes through ADAT !!
probably steinberg(or to say yamaha) are not going to invest on MR development/improvement anymore(actually its been a while,MR816 CSX/X FIRMWARE UPDATE April 7th 2009 the last and only one !!), they clearly focus on their USB interfaces on selling…(money talks bullsh*t walks )
for this to work inside cubase when mixing u need to change to “external fx” option in MR control panel…then they gonna be available ,but they won’t work on inputs in this mode for monitoring/recording.
