Its seems yamaha/steiny wont invest any eforts to improve cc121/mr816 Line which came aprox 6 years ago!
During this 6 years thtey had some improvments(aside from driver update/compatibility )
Anyway that was not enough in my opinion and cc121 should be improved a little more,especially this issue where it wont follow Mixer. Its relativly not that cheap peice of hardware for one channel and really needs to be improved. Its even still selling on the market… Sooo…!!
With UR series seems steiny/yamaha do better job as to improvements from the initial release.
Drivers they need to maintain, at least while they are selling the product. I don’t see that they have made any changes in the software part since it was released. And that is typically Japanese business model. Im even quite sure that the software is not made by a yamaha employee, it is a consultant gig. The consultant is gone and nothing will ever happens to the product. And the steinberg people think it sucks (as the seems to think about all hardware for daw control) PreSonus is not Japanese nor a gigantic company as yamaha, they have to take all the market they can. A software driver is small part of the BOM and is a good way to increase volumes.
