I notice on the PC at work, I cannot use the MR Editor while Wavelab or Cubase is open. Is this normal? Seems rather silly not to be able to adjust output volume while your editor is open…
It is normal… on the Mac at least so I assume PC is the same… that the MR Editor cannot be opened when Cubase is open. This is because all the controls for the 816 (phone levels reverb controls etc) are controlled from within Cubase with the Device/Audio Hardware menu. (except for the inout monitoring which is handled by the Cubase Mixer directly.)
I’m not sure about the case for Wavelab … haven’t tried it, but I wouldn’t expect such tight integration.
