An update of the Yamaha Steinberg USB driver for Windows is available for download now.
Please find the driver on the download page!
Version 1.9.8 fixes the following problems:
- Audio loss may occur if a Steinberg audio interface is connected to an USB port of the PC which is controlled by one of the specific USB controller chips inside the PC. This sometimes occurs due to the software of the USB controller to return abnormal values to our audio driver.
- Audio may distort after some period of time because of the accumulated data error depending on the user environment.
We recommend all users of Steinberg audio interfaces with Windows OS environment to proceed to the download page and install the V1.9.8 driver.
In general, not all USB ports on a PC are controlled by the same USB controller chip resulting in different specification or performance. If you feel that your USB audio interface is not functioning well, we recommend you to try connecting to other USB ports on your PC. Especially with desktop PCs, it is often seen that an USB device functions better when connected to the rear panel port than the front panel port.
This driver is compatible with all UR Series and CI Series devices. If available, make sure to have the latest “TOOLS for UR” or “TOOLS for CI” installed for your device prior to the installation of the new driver.
