I miss a LED volume meter on my MR 816

Hi guys,

I recently replaced my Tascam FW 1884 for a Steinberg MR 816 and I couldn’t be happier.

But… the only thing I miss from my FW 1884 is the simple volume meter on the console:

(the meter at the right)

I didn’t use the meter for anything important, I don’t make important mix or master decisions based on it but I used it a lot to quicky peek on it when I listen to a mp3 or youtube video or when I’m mixing a track.

The Steinberg doesn’t have a meter and now I’m looking for one. Does anybody know of a way to connect a volume meter to the MR 816? For example, something like this: http://www.bax-shop.nl/db-display/dap-audio-19-inch-db-display/product-details.html#.UJ4ceIeunow (a rackmount volume meter). Or maybe there’s a solution with USB?

Any ideas?

not in my front of my 816 now, but it is possible to turn the leds of the 2 knobs to show volume meter at playback.
look somewhere in the settings in Mr editor or control panel.
