I’ve just bought a new mr816x. unfortunately it’s not running like it should! and I’ve already spent hours trying to find a solution (and yes, i read the whole manual!). I need help!!
It seems as if all the link functions that should combine the mr816 with cubase don’t work.
I have Cubase5.5.3 32bit and Mac OSx 10.8.2 (MountainLion)
When using the mr816x without cubase but with the mr-editor everything works fine and I can turn on the headphones.
However, when using it with Cubase, there’s no headphones-signal. When opening the “device->audio hardware setup-> headphones” it sais "no select (mute). there’s no sound on the headphones. But the monitors on output channel 1/2 work.
The next problem is that I can’t use the plugins such as “rev-Xhall”. It always sais “not available”. I know that I have to switch the “digital I/O, external fx” from “ADAT” to “External FX”. However, when I do that it would always sitch back to “adat” after a few seconds.
Next thing is that the Quick connect buttons don’t work. there’s no light and I can’t change anything by pressing those buttons.
Last thing I’ve noticed so far is that when i have no “hardware” option in the extended mixer of my cubase. so i can’t make a controll-room option as said on page 17 of the user’s manual.
I figure that this is a problem with the link funtions that are not working. i could uninstall “mr-extensions” an use my mr816 as any other interface but then i wouldn’t have needed to buy a steinberg mr816…
I’m happy to get some feedbacks and suggestions!!
thx a lot!
