Just thought I would offer some feedback on using x2 UR824s and Cubase 7. I have had a few issues that have arisen since I have been trying to use two UR824s, (ADAT connection) and the fine folks at Steinberg have helped with some issues and are still working with me to resolve all of them. Since there is not much documentation about this setup in the manual, I thought some of you may benefit from knowing that when you use two, together connected by ADAT, you need to connect the Word clock via a BNC cable so the audio can sync. At first this didn’t help either but the way I finally got it to work correctly was making the “master” UR824 clock set to external and the “slave” to internal. Then you need to be sure the small switches on the back next to the Word clock connection are set to “IN” for the master and “out” for the slave. That solved my audio dropout issues but the other problems arose when I attempted to use the inputs on the “slave” UR824. The two inputs on the front seemed to work fine but all 6 of the rear inputs would not pass the signal to the input channels on Cubase 7. There was no action on the meters, however, interestingly, I could still hear the audio in my monitors. There were some other issues involving the Control Room and Cue Mixes that did not seem to be routing properly. I’m hoping it was operator error in this case but the new Control Room is so intuitive that I am fairly convinced that it wasn’t me. I ultimately am trying to arrive at 16 analog inputs, one monitor mix, and 4 stereo cue mixes. This is supposed to be achievable so I guess we’ll see soon enough. I think there may be a few more bugs to be worked out at this point but I will keep posting my progress with Steinberg in hopes it will help someone else. Cheers for now!
FYI, I’m running Cubase 7.01, Windows 7 x64, 8GB RAM, I7-1.6GHz, Dell Studio XPS 1645 Laptop
