There is a problem with the Hardware Setup and Cubase 7.5. Before looking at the specifics:
- I have set up the Control Room with two monitor systems (Main/Analog outputs 1 & 2 & Secondary/Digital SPDIF) and two Cue sends (outputs 3 & 4).
- If I recall correctly, what is called Cue was called Studio (outputs) in pre-7 versions of Cubase. The fact that all descriptions and screengrabs in the MR816 manual are from pre-7 Cubase (v4.5.1 continuously referred to), makes it bit tricky to find thing that has to do with the MixConsole.
- The main output selection options change whether I select the Main/Analog or Secondary/Digital in the Control Room. Analog gives “01 + 02 (CR)” and Digital give “15 + 16 (CR)”. 15 & 16 being the SPDIF outputs
Here we go:
The Headphones Tab
I only get a single choice of outputs “01 + 02 (CR)” or “15 + 16 (CR)”. How do I route Cue 1 (Studio 1) and Cue 2 (Studio 2) to the MR816’s headphone output, as depicted to manual.
The Reverb Routing Tab
Once again I only get the main output as an option. The Cue (studio) send outputs are, once again, absent. This is a serious issue since sending the REV-X output to the Cue (studio) sends is it’s main purpose.
The Master Levels Tab
Yet again (it’s getting kinds familiar) I only get the main output as an option. No Cue (studio) sends or Phones outputs. Actually I haven’t any “Phones” channel in my Studio setup, but adding one makes no difference.
Why can’t I access the Cue (studio) sends or Phones outputs in the MR816X Hardware Setup? Not being allowed to route the REV-X to the Cue (studio) send outputs is a very serious issue. Is the MR816X Hardware Setup incompatible with Cubase 7/7.5?
