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?
