Now that my MR816 has been up and running trouble free for a while, I’m beginning to get some real work done.
I want to say that I am immensely pleased with the quality of the reverb and the compressor.
The interfaces are more utilitarian than those in Cubase, but WOW! The sounds are amazing: rich, deep, pure, and professional.
I wonder if it’s because it’s using specialized hardware and not relying on algorithms written for a computer.
I’ve set up a-b comparisons between all of the Cubase reverbs & compressors - which are quite good IMHO, but where the Cubase effects are good, the MR816 effects are perfect - at least to my ears.
It would be awesome if Cubase could develop a multi band compressor for mastering using onboard compressors from the MR816 - I’ll bet that would sound amazing.
