Please consider releasing tools for MR 1.7.9 as open source

Steinberg, please consider releasing tools for MR 1.7.9 as open source and the community will take care of the drivers. Thank you.

Wouldn’t that be something?

Are you able to develop… or know someone who could? Without that there’s no way it would happen. Although if you are a developer maybe decompiling and reverse engineering the old Tools might be an option? It certainly worked for a group called Magic Lantern who give Canon dSLR cameras a whole other life via open source development of firmware.

However I suspect the reality is that Yamaha don’t want the 816 to live on and would never release the source code … I’m sure there’s someone in their Marketing Dept who draws a nice salary advising 'not to eat into our own market share ’ .

I just want a utility to adjust the 816 settings to use as an external preamp …

Frustrating
